makes Nanny special is that she does not know that she is a goat.
Nanny thinks she is a lap dog. If you don't take time to stop what you
are doing and pet her, she will stand in your way so you can't walk past
her and if you are sitting down she will try to get on your lap. Nanny
will follow you all over and stay with you like a dog. Nanny will also
do a trick- she will speak on command.
Nanny is our second of three goats. Nanny was born by surprise on a
friend's farm, he was not interested in raising baby goats and was going
to sell her at a farmer's market, but I decided to take her instead.
We like this picture as you can see the pretty markings on her ears,
and her forehead star.
Nanny is very affectionate she will put her head right against you and
push you until you stop to pet her, when she was younger she would stand
up on her hind legs and put her hooves right on your chest to get you to
pet her. She is strictly an outside or barn girl, and shares her house with
her cousin and a pygmy goat that we own. Nanny will speak if you call
her name and will answer you with various bleats when you talk to her.
