CNN - In another 'first' from the Plane Living Ranch, authorities have discovered the first goat not afraid of water. Until now experts believed goats melt in water.

'Abe' has other peculiar traits unknown in the goat world. He does not urinate in the garage, poop in the orchard, and no pen can contain him.

Houdini ... that should be his name.  Very pretty goat.  Hanna was a house trained baby and to the day she died, she wouldn't poo or pee in the barn and God forbid if it was raining for longer than she could hold it, she would scream for me to come with the rain coat so she didn't get wet while going potty in the rain!!!  ;D ;D

Houdini is a great name, but we already have one by that name.

Birdie -- that's the doggonedist thing I ever heard.  We've raised babies in the garage...never in the house, but you better believe that the next set of bottle babies will be brought up that way!

Why are goats so darned cute, and why don't more people realize it?

I have always wanted babies named Chaos and Chitto...I tell ya, both names fits good for Goats...lol. 

I do enjoy raising babies in the house.  They are a lot of work, but they are also a lot of fun.  I think my next house baby, will have a doggie door to go in and out of...lol.

I hate having them in the house! I would keep them inside only until they were eating enough to keep them warm and then they went outside with the herd. That was usually about 2 weeks of age. I absolutely HATE bottle kids- as kids and as adults! grrrrrrr lol

This year I made a nursery out of a giant dog crate, up on wood horses and covered with a thick sleeping bag. The bottle kids lived in that for the first 2 weeks and then moved in with the herd.

I love my bottle kids, but we have enough in the house already.  Since my kids are born in warm weather the barn works great.  I just have to walk up the hill to feed-- good exercise.....
