Farm Stories. Chapter 15. Goats Next Generation: Vanilla and Milkshake.

Cappuccina-the-doe kidded at the beginning of March 2019, just a few days after Giselle. It happened all by itself When Edward-the-farmer came to the farm in the morning, he’s discovered two new baby-goats: a girl and a boy .

Edward-the-farmer was so happy – there was a girl finally!

"It's a girl!"

“It’s a girl!”

We named Cappuccina’s kids Vanilla and Milkshake. The coffee family! They were so beautiful and sweet! ❤️
They both inherited the white coloring from Yonkel-the-buck. But the shape of their bodies and the type of their horns were similar to Cappuccina’s.

Vanilla and Milkshake have developed very well. They were very gentle and friendly, and started to play with other two kids Castor & Pollux quite soon.
Vanilla and Milkshake became very shy young goats. They liked being pet and were not afraid of people at all. At some moment they even asked to be taken on hands. And when we wouldn’t do that, they would stand on their hind legs, and start nibbling our cloths.
When Castor and Pollux seemed to inherit the leadership skills from their mom Giselle, Milkshake and Vanilla most likely inherited their shyness from Cappuccina.

Milkshake. Such a funny face!

At the end of July 2019, when all goat-kids grew up, all three boys left to another farm. Goodbye Milkshake, Castor and Pollux!
And Vanilla stayed on our farm ❣️
