If Juniper knew I skipped her, she'd be indignant. It was an accident. Now, in honor of the Chinese New Year, here's Juniper.
Juniper was the first goat I ever milked, in the summer of 2010. Look at my crazy goat milking face!
When we got Junie, we already had Violet and Pansy (see Goats of Note posts 1 and 2). Juniper was the same age, yet she was sophisticated, mannered, lactating. I don't think I make that face when I milk goats anymore. At the time, though, it was quite a revelation.
In 2012, Junie had two does, Jade and Jasmine. They were and are adorable and will have their own post shortly.
She's a pretty laid-back mom in general. Her main mothering technique involves head butting human children. Don't ask.
Generally, though, Junie is a charmer. She's a typical goat, inquisitive, crafty, and funny. She likes your sweatshirt string, belt end, and camera case. She enjoys picking locks, head-butting her friends, neck rubs, and eating things.

Happy Year of the Goat. May your feed be sweet and your horizon clear. I promise many goat pictures in the year to come.
