Some friends of ours found a stray goat and they couldn't find it's owner. So they called and offered the goat to us.  Naturally we found a home for it.  That night we kept it in a dog pen and the next morning we built a pen for it.   My goat is a female named Gertie. If you've want to know more about goats here are a few facts.
