Stella’s entry to Mikamoo’s contest [video]

This is Stella’s entry to Mikamoo’s (teamtikaani1) contest. In this video, Stella walks on her back legs, does cop cop and bows. All of Stella’s tricks are trained using clicker training. Tricks are her favorite thing to do. Whenever there’s a treat present, she is busy offering behaviors trying to figure out which trick she has to do to get the treat. 🙂

Stella’s Tricks ~ week #1 [video]

Introducing Stella the goat!

Stella is a 16-week-old Nigerian Dwarf/fainting cross goat who loves learning and performing her tricks. I began clicker training with her on June 16th and boy, does she learn fast! In this video, she shows off all the tricks she has learned so far.

Thanks for watching! Leave a comment here or on YouTube…we’d love to hear from you. 🙂

Lia and the Goats’ Special Meal [video]

We like to make our pets’ meals fun every once and a while by giving them “human food” made specially for them. Today, Lia and the goats enjoy a delicious Garden Salad with olive oil vinaigrette. Lia and the kids found other things to be tastier, but Luna enjoyed the food.

We always make sure that the foods that we give our pets are not toxic. 🙂

Cosmo rides Lia [video]

My sister wanted to sit on Lia, the horse, while she was getting up. The baby goats wanted to join in too. Cosmo got to sit on Lia while she got up, but Stella fell off (but didn’t get hurt). My sister had to do an emergency dismount while holding Cosmo. I can’t believe I got this on video!

The kids just got disbudded yesterday, so that is why their heads look funny.

Baby goats jump onto my back [video]

The 1 1/2 week old baby goats are starting to jump onto my back. They are getting better every day. I think that baby goats give the best back massages. 🙂
