Meet the Girls – Rebekah

It’s time for our second installment of meet the girls and our chosen girl is Rebekah. She is one of our senior does and her mom was Twilight (one of our first 3 girls). Rebekah is a chamoisee pattern with white and has some of the most beautiful blue eyes I have ever seen on a goat.

She is our current herd queen and likes to rule over everyone except her best bud, Tinkerbell. While she may not have quite as many antics as Tinkerbell, Rebekah has always been a character here at Wyldewood. If she thinks you have food or treats, she will be all in your space. If she thinks you might be considering catching her for something, then you will never get near her. In her younger days, we called her the Matrix goat. She was known to run along the wall in the barn and jump over the wall of the stalls to get away from you. Luckily, she has settled down quite a bit in her older years.

Rebekah’s other talent is teaching all of our dogs that they don’t want to go in the goat when we are working on things. Rebekah and her mother have made sure all of our dogs give the goats a very wide berth. She is usually the first to put any livestock guardian puppies in their place as well. She gets along great with our senior Great Pyrenees, Sam. He loves to be near the girls, but doesn’t get in their space so Rebekah tolerates him more than any other dog that has ever lived at Wyldewood.


We are hoping for some beautiful babies from Rebekah this spring and I am hoping for at least one girl that I can keep. I would love to have another girl with her beautiful blue eyes so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed.

Meet the Girls – Tinkerbell

I thought it would be fun to introduce a few of the girls here at Wyldewood Soap Works and Farm. One of our older ladies, Tinkerbell, is up first.

Tink is one of our Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats. She is a buckskin pattern with minimal white and beautiful blue eyes. Her best friend is one of our other senior does, Rebekah. You will learn more about Rebekah in our next “Meet the Girls” blog post.

Around the farm, Tinkerbell is one of our herd queens. She likes to be the boss of everyone and is one of the reasons we have to make everyone spread out at feeding time. Most of our girls are happy to share a single feeding trough, but not Tinkerbell. She thinks she deserves an entire one to herself!

Tinkerbell is also known for hitting anything and everything. Luckily, that doesn’t include people! If you are outside and hear someone hitting the barn, it’s Tinkerbell. Sounds like someone is hitting the fence? It’s Tinkerbell. Stall board broken in the barn? It was Tinkerbell.

It’s been too long –

It’s been way too long since I posted any new blog posts so I thought it would be fun to share some fun spring pictures. All the baby goats are here and running around like crazy. Flowers are blooming and pollen is everywhere. I love this time of the year when my grandmother’s azalea bushes are blooming. The colors are spectacular and pictures really don’t do them justice.
