The fact that most goats look alike, to begin with, makes distinguishing them hard enough. But the fact that, when placed in a group of 2 or more, they start to change their colors to match one another — why it makes finding your family goat impossible. Which do you feed garbage and which do you milk? And just hope it doesn’t happen on camera.

So What I Do Is, what I do is teach my goats to speak. Just like a human. So they can answer commands and call out, “I’m right here, daddy, I’m right here. Nevaeh is right here.”

Nevaeh. That’s “Heaven” backwards, but that’s a different matter.
