Caramel Apple Farms

Caramel Apple Farms, originally uploaded by cabanagirl.

Welcome to the goat farm....Caramel Apple Farms, about 35 miles East of Denver.

Monday Ella, Kate and I went to see some dwarf goats. Nigerian dwarf goats are about 22 inches (at the withers) high and maybe get to 75 lbs. Along with chicken Denver residents are allowed to have 2 of these as pets or keep them for their's the new "food producing animal" ordinance recently passed here.
I grew up with goats but these guys are really little compared to the ones we had. You can tell they like to climb and they are very curious. Kate and Ella wanted to bring home this little 6 month old "Cookie Dough" but we will have to wait until May when our little baby does will be big enough to leave their Mamas Yes! 2 goats will be joining my little urban farm. Can't wait
