This is some of the herd trying out the new culverts we were given by a local company in St Martinville.
to Evening Shade Farm, located in southern Louisiana just east of Lafayette. Our interest in goats began ten years ago with our horse farm needing some alternate stock to rotate with our horses.
We have been raising Missouri Foxtrotting horses for over thirty years. It was our great blessing to be introduced to the beautiful boer goats at a local 4H show at the high school just down the road. We decided that day that the boer goat was the one we wanted on our farm.
We purchased a doe and her three babies and our adventure began.
Oh how we fell in love with these sweet, gentle, beautiful animals. I can actually say that I love these littles babies more than the foals I have raised all these years. You can have so much interaction with them. Their highjinks will keep you entertained for hours. Sweet, sweet babies, gentle, gorgeous and fun.
