    WOW!

    Went to a feed store with a friend and they had LaMancha goats.

    We cascaded giggles trying to think of what they reminded us of...then it came to us.

    Little X-Files gray men alien critters!

    They were SO CUTE.

    I may just buy some when I get back from Seattle.

    Lol...they sure are riots huh?

    I breed them and just ADORE them! The adults remind me of deer and the kids remind me of young foals :p .

    My friends breed and raise LaManchas. They look like snakes through the head and neck to me. Especially the babies.

    They call the babies raptors. They Lambar feed their babies so the babies attack anything that vaguely LOOKS like it could be nursed off of...

    Long necked things... LOTS of milk though...

    When we decided on having goats a LaMancha was not even on the list...when we came across a great barter deal for one we got our very first. We now have 4 does..one with kid on the way. I love our goats.
