Dave:

Dave was born on September 24, 2017. He arrived to the Carmel Valley Ranch on November 12, 2017. Of all the goats, Dave is the strongest and largest one. He was the only offspring so he was able to get the most nourishment from his Mom. Although larger in size and attempts to put everyone else in their place, Dave is still playful and loves to climb trees and get on top of people’s backs. Dave loves full attention with lap sitting and neck rubs. He is multicolored, with brown and white and has a black stripe down his back. Dave is very handsome. He is named after the owners Richard and Carolyn’s last dog, Dave.

Turk:

Turk was born on September 25, 2017. He arrived to the Carmel Valley Ranch on November 12, 2017. Turk was one of three litter mates that survived their first nine weeks. He is a bit shy with the other goats but loves human attention. He loves to lick your hands and is the only one that will eat the carrots and apples when offered. His coloring is a greyish brown with a white stripe down his side with a sweet white face. Turk was the name of Carolyn Gray’s first dog as a little girl.

Madeline:

In a soft, warm shed in Carmel Valley, that was shaded by Oaks, came little Madeline to the Storybook Farms on November 26, 2017. First to be born and smallest of the two, she is a sweet doeling: brave and true. Madeline is a sweet grey and white mix with facial hair coloring that is just beautiful. It looks like she has eye makeup around those large dark eyes. She was named by her breeder.

Chip:

Chip was born on October 2, 2017 and arrived to the Carmel Valley Ranch on November 26, 2017 with his sister Madeline from Storybook Farms. Chip is a real lap goat, even at 2 weeks he couldn’t wait to climb in your lap and cuddle. He is shiny black with a white dot on his head. Richard and Carolyn had a border collie that was white and black and his name was Chip. When the wind picks up you will see Chip looking up waiting for one of those delicious Oak leaves to fall.

Jesse:

Jesse was born on October 8, 2017. He arrived to the Carmel Valley Ranch on November 25, 2017. He is a very handsome brown color with a black stripe down his back and a few white spots. Jesses is very shy when he first arrived but after being hand fed, he now looks up and asks for a rub down and more treats. Being one of the youngest, Jesse holds his ground and has done a pretty good job at it. He is named after one of the owner’s friend’s first dog.

Chiqui:

Chiqui was born on October 8, 2017. She arrived to the Carmel Valley Ranch on November 25, 2017 with her brother Jesse. She was shy at first, but not for long. Now Chiqui loves to be held and get groomed with a brush. Her coat is a shiny black like Chip with the same spot on her head but she has a unique white rear leg. She is the smallest of the goats and has taken up hiding in a portable dog carry to get way from the others when she has had enough. She does enjoy head butting the others in the morning and seems to be the most frisky of the bunch. Her name is Columbian given to her by her breeder.
