My precious, missing baby goat . . . . .
I guess I really need to begin my story with Chaos' moma, Bitty Baby. Bitty Baby is one of my sweet, little nanny goats. She is one of those oddities of Nature, a Nubian-Pigmy cross. She was born at my last home, with me right there by her side helping clean her up. Somehow, she ended up not only smaller than a Nubian, but also smaller than a Pigmy goat! She was the tiniest, and most adorable, baby goat I had ever seen!
For her first few years, Bitty Baby stayed so tiny that she was barely bigger than my Tom cat. I decided not to ever let her breed because although she is so tiny, she does have the large Nubian in her genetics, which gives her the potential to have large babies, which could be catastrophic for her and baby.
I watched her closely over the years. She never came into season and never showed any interest in any of the Billies she had been around. I decided that she must be sterile, which so often happens with extra small animals, or animals that are an odity of Nature. So, over a period of several years, Bitty Baby had lived, long term, with three or four mature Billy goats, never showing any sign of a breeding cycle.

Wow! My property search has been long and hard, but I finally have property! Yay! I am working on clearing it off just enough that I can start moving stuff up onto it. I will give you all a full update on all of this very soon. At the moment, I don't have Internet (not allowed to use it where I am staying) so I have to wait until I can get on WiFi somewhere to get any online time. When I do, the time really goes by fast! I will be glad when I get all moved and have Internet every day, again! For now, my focus will be on my story about this Spring's baby goat. He has been missing since early April (gotten rid of when I was gone for a day) and I want to spend my Internet time getting his story out there, in hopes that someone knows something about him and where his got off to. I WANT HIM BACK! Thank you and have a great day!
