Let me introduce you to my goats

In August 2010, during my visit to yogjakarta Indonesia, I received a call from my brother in law saying that his friend wanted to sell a herd of goats. Its doesn't take me long to say yes because first, I like animals and second, its costly making oversea calls. This goat herds consist of 2 bucks, 20 does and 4 kids. The price was only RM7,000 (USD 2,400)
After 2 years, we have about 50 goats, (I couldn't remember how many bucks, does and kids we have.) But after "the boa" incident we only managed to save 37 of them.

1st generation of the herd, my nephew observing them upon arrival at our farm.
