Goat Blogs-not about actual goats


I have been searching for other people blogging about goats. That is, the livestock animal, its wild kin, and said animals' place in history, literature, pop culture etc.

However - many blogs with "goat" in the title aren't about goats at all. Here is what I have found: = A pretty fun blog not about goats, but about gear for people traveling back country (back packing, off roading etc.) Everyone who contributes has goat in their names! But it's just a funny food blog. = Not about goats. A news blog about topics that effect the Western US. = A CA winery website. Named after the donkeys in France and their goat companions.

I was able to find the following: = A blog started by Baby Belle, a Nigerian Dwarf in 2005. Still going strong! It is kidding season and so Belle has lots to talk about. = A blog started in 2006 by Susan Schoenian, Sheep & Goat Specialist for University of Maryland Cooperative Extension. Good info, but a lot of sheep. = Based in VA, a very nice site about boer goats with lots of links. Very cute blog with lots of pics of a farm in Kansas. = An eclectic anyone-can-post blog that's rather hard to navigate. One post was about snail control by goats! = blog about Kinder goats-cross between Nubian and Pygmy goats. Unfortunately hasn't been updated since 9/2008.
