You don’t often hear of the Goats of Christmas Past. More often, one hears of the Ghost of Christmas Past. Whatever that is supposed to mean. But since that is not real, and since the goats of Christmas past, were, at least, at one time real, I thought I would head that direction instead, since I have photographic evidence of that.
There’s really not much to say in those post, but I have many more coming down the pike. I was just out milking and the title popped in my head and so I thought I’d go with the title and see what happened. Not much did, so I guess you’ll just have to enjoy some pictures of the Goats of Christmas Past. 🙂
After getting rid of these goats because of a foolish notion to pursue other things, I later got some more goats in late 2011, they kidded in 2012 and I was back to milking again. This bunch was also Nubians.
I ended up getting rid of these goats in early 2014, as a result of further life chaos. Then I was goat-less for quite a while, as I traveled and did other random things like climbing mountains and jumping off cliffs with my friends.
I got goats again from an old friend in later 2016, and there are pictures of them somewhere, just not sure exactly where at the moment. I didn’t have them for very long before I realized I was in over my head with many other things going on, and so got rid of them as well.
As many of you know, I then abandoned the US for a very enjoyable stint in Europe, came back, met a beautiful girl, married her, and got goats again. For the first time since 2008, back when I first got goats and wanted to milk them and sell the milk, I’m finally not losing money on the whole venture anymore. Which is exciting. But in order to see them, you will have to either come to the farm or wait for the next post, which, obviously, would be, The Goats of Christmas Present. 🙂
