About the Gamrie Goats


The Gamrie Goat, Goat's Milk Soap is a natural goats milk soap; handmade at our family croft on the beautiful Moray coast in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, UK. This page tells you more about the goats and their lives on the croft.

This is Blizzard with Molly the Shetland pony looking at him. Blizzard was kidnapped by Molly shortly after birth. Blizzard and his twin Balmy were born on a cold rainy night in the barn and the ponies (Molly and Kelpie) were brought into their nearby stalls in the barn to shelter for the night.

This is Blizzard, with Molly the Shetland pony looking at him. Blizzard was kidnapped by Molly shortly after birth. Blizzard and his twin Balmy were born on a cold rainy night in the barn, and the ponies (Molly and Kelpie) were brought into their nearby stalls in the barn to shelter for the night. Having made sure that all the animals were peacefully bedded down for the night I left them for a while. Returning at about midnight I was surprised to see that Molly had got out of her stall and was standing, very still and contented in a narrow corridor next to where the newborn twins had been left sleeping with their mother Snowy. Looking over to check them I was mystified to see only one twin, and there was no way a small kid could have got itself out of the stall. I looked over the gate at Molly, and lying peacefully, but awake, between her front feet was the missing kid! Terrified that Molly may move suddenly and step on the tiny kid I quickly tried to think how I could retrieve the kid unharmed – but I need not have worried as Molly stood absolutely still while I picked up Blizzard and returned him to mum. There are 2 possible explanations for what happened. Either Snowy took a dislike to Blizzard and tossed him over the side of the stall where he landed in the straw (a 4 feet drop), Molly saw him, was concerned (or curious) and fought her way out of her stall to be with him, or Molly got out of her stall, leant over into the kids’ stall, picked Blizzard up by the scruff of the neck and placed him between her feet!. I think you’ll agree that either explanation is remarkable!.

 

 

 

 

Striding purposefully towards a juicy patch of clover are my milking nanny goats Goldie and Snowy with Balmy at the rear ( or perhaps the kids and lambs have organised a knobbly knees contest again) In the background you can see our Shetland coo Flowery and our Highland cattle Leah and Coco, as well as our cross Jacob lambs.

Here we have 4 of the 2007 lambs. Frosty Gale Cirrus and Nimbus (and Storm the orphan lamb) I leave the newborn kids with mum and at around 2 weeks I take them out of the stalls overnight and they all sleep together. The Gamrie Goat, Banff, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, UK.

Here we have 4 of the 2007 kids - Frosty, Gale, Cirrus and Nimbus (and Storm the orphan lamb) I leave the newborn kids with mum, and at around 2 weeks I take them out of the stalls overnight and they all sleep together. In the morning I milk the mums before returning the kids to them (I don’t take all the milk – I leave some for the kid’s breakfast). The kids stay with the mums all day. This means that I get some milk from the goats and the kids get a chance to begin eating solids away from mum (who would happily eat all the solids if allowed!)
