This is my precious boy Billy and my whole reason for loving these goats the way I do. He is such a mama's boy and always ready for a cuddle. He loves being brushed down and will push his way into line if I am brushing anyone else. His beautiful coat is the reason I started looking into the mini silky fainting goats. It looks marvelous in the summertime, but one of these days I will shave him completely down to see what he looks like. Keep checking back for that picture!
Billy enjoys running around the yard and eating grass (as well as leaves). He also loves to knock things over; rakes, shovels, trash cans etc. Anything that is resting against a wall or standing up, he will knock it down. He makes it very difficult to get chores done quickly because he is always in the way.
He is definitely a more proficient fainting goat than his sister. He will faint at the drop of a hat, or sneeze, really anything. Unlike Lucy though, Billy goes for the drama when he faints and will bleat and cry from the ground waiting for me to come rescue him.
Watching him work up to his run is like watching a train getting started. He has to build up momentum. It is extremely amusing. Whenever we do chores around the yard using the backhoe, all you can see is his head peering out from the barn to keep an eye on things. He is not the type of goat to go check things out. He remains an easy going fellow though and is courteous to the horses and chickens. He's a lover, not a fighter.
I can always count on Billy to follow me around where ever I go in the yard. He is still my very best goat guy and I look forward to all the wonderful years we will have together.
Update (7/8/15): I finally made the decision to shave Billy completely down! He looks so good! He seemed to enjoy getting all that hair off too. :) What a guy! He looks good no matter what we do.
Billy the Fainting Goat!
Billy is finally shaved!
