Izzy the Easter Goat

By

Posted Aug 19, 2015

The day before Easter 2011 we were driving down the road with my grandmother when we saw a sign that read 'kids for sale'. So we stopped and the family came out and brought the last three goats they had for sale out for us to see. There were two females and one male. We decided to buy Izzy and Maxi, the two females, however as soon as we got home our grandpa ran back up there to buy the male because we couldn't leave one alone. The three goats were 2 days old, and needed to be bottle fed about every four hours. We did this for almost six weeks. The goats would come inside, play with the dogs, and on the furniture. The goats were like dogs, they'd go on walks with us and come when their names were called. Izzy is the last goat we have, Brodey and Maxi finding new homes when they got older. Izzy eats about two cups of grain a day, fruit and vegetable scraps, and hay. She is easy to take care of, and the best love a girl could have.
