Competitive Bottle-Feeding

August 20, 2012

Here are Willie and King, two of our bottle babies from last spring. Willie is a Hampshire/Suffolk lamb and King is an Alpine buck (dairy goat). We fed them twice a day for about 12 weeks, 8 ounces each time. Check out their wiggling tails to see how much they enjoy their bottles — and how much they love to race to the finish.

King wins, both on speed and style. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdz9yCj1lkY&feature=youtu.be

    So Lynn, do you use King’s milk?

  2. Tammy, Sorry! I’ve been away from the blogosphere. Well…King is a buck, so milking him would be awkward. But, we do enjoy the milk from our doe, Banana Pepper! My husband has even made delicious mozzarella.
