She is second in command of our goat herd. Yet everyone follows her in the pasture. Where Lillie goes they go. Apparently, she knows all the best places to forage. When we want the herd to come in we start singing her name – they follow. Makes our job easier.
Lillie likes her back and sides rubbed. She is an excellent mother. We have heard full blood boer goats will leave their kids in the pasture. Lillie is Kiko. We breed her to a full blood boer Billie. Kiko goats are recognized for their superior maternal instincts, greater parasite resistance, rapid growth rate of kids and, fewer foot problems, fewer health issues and aggressive foraging abilities. That’s Lillie in a nut shell.
She has had triplets 2 years in a row. We supplement with a bottle, but she usually can handle all three until they are a couple of weeks old. She’s due again this spring. Will she make it 3 years straight? Hmmm…
