Emma's sister went in with us when we bought our first goats. We purchased two and she purchased Blackie, with the understanding that we would take care of Blackie while she was at college.

Blackie, who's name we did not choose, is a sweetheart of a goat. She has okay mothering instincts, though took a while to let her first kid nurse. It got to the point where we almost had to hold her down to give her baby a chance to latch on. But she figured it out eventually and is doing very well now.
