A Horny Situation

Little Timmy and little Lew are growing up big and strong like little wethers will.
They go out every day and eat the yummy weeds and grasses that are growing around the Farm.



As they grow, so do their little horns.
You can see the start of them in this photo of little Lew.



But they are not so visible on little Timmy's head in this picture.



There are two reasons for that and that is our horny situation!
Lew's horns are a bit bigger than Timmy's - you can see how big they are here...



And Timmy's? Well, he has horns of different colors.
What?! You ask?
That's right!





Timmy has one black horn and one white horn!
One horn is growing up through a black spot and it is black and one is growing up through his white hair and it is white!
The publicist and male person have never seen this before and think it is funny.
They are very curious to see if it will last as he grows older.

It will be very funny if he is a big goat with one black horn and one white horn.
Don't you think?

I want to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July!
I am going to take a day off from blogging tomorrow so I can have a little play time
.
I hope you all have a fun day full of family and barbeques and remembrances of what makes the USA so great.

I'll be back on Monday will more adventures from the Farm!

  8. They're growing horns already?! They do not stay babies for very long.

    If kitties can grow different colors of whiskers, I don't see why goats can't grow different colors of horns.

  10. Mable had a triplet several years ago that had one black and one white horn. They did even out a bit (more gray than black) before he left home, but they were still clearly different.

  12. They are growing way too fast. Look at those cute little horns coming in. Glad you didn't cut the horns off. They are so useful. They make super back scratchers.
    Have a wonderful Fourth.

  13. Happy Independence Day! I hope Timmy does end up with one white horn and one black horn when they get bigger. I think that will be so cute!

  18. If he keeps one black horn and one white horn, it will make him very distinctive. Would other goats have a problem with it?

  19. I have a kid that is growing a black horn and white horn too so I googled it and came across your blog. I am interested in finding out what Timmy's horns look like now since its been two years says you posted the pic. I have never seen this occur in any of my goats before. It must be a little more rare. If you can, please email me at crochet_by_deb@yahoo.com

  20. I've got one too! Any idea on how rare this is? 1/10,000 ? I'm curious if anyone else knows if this trait is passed on in some percentage... 25%? If you know, hit me up; rieack@aol.com
    Thanks,
    R
