Baby Goat Hair

If you happen to wander through the goat yard when I’m hanging out training the museum’s little goat herd, I will be the first person to show off the ridiculously long hair that grows along Charlie’s spine. I will also be the first to admit that, despite some research, I have no idea why it grows like this, what it’s for, or if it’s just an extra special characteristic of some baby Nigerian Dwarf goats. Two of our three boys have awesome mohawks; Bill and Charlie.

It’s ridiculous, but I love their ridge of long hair!

What do you think this fabulous hairdo is all about?
