-Hello. Welcome to My Pet And Me. I'm Ferne.

-And I'm Rory.

0:00:020:00:05

We've just been walking lovely, big D'Artagnan here.

0:00:050:00:08

Isn't he gorgeous?

0:00:080:00:09

We like to make sure that all the animals get plenty of fresh air

0:00:090:00:12

-and exercise.

-And lots of water, too, don't forget.

0:00:120:00:15

That's true. Very, very important.

0:00:150:00:17

Lots of animals make excellent pets and we love meeting you and yours.

0:00:170:00:20

We definitely do and, on that note,

0:00:200:00:22

I'm actually off to meet some new friends now.

0:00:220:00:24

And you can come with me too, if you like.

0:00:240:00:26

-Bye, guys.

-Bye.

-Come on!

0:01:100:01:12

Today, I'm in Castlewellan in Northern Ireland

0:01:160:01:19

to meet Eva and her pet goats.

0:01:190:01:20

I cannot wait! Let's go find them.

0:01:200:01:23

-Hi, Eva.

-Hi, Ferne.

0:01:340:01:36

And you must be Mum.

0:01:360:01:37

-Hello.

-Hi, Ferne.

-Look at all these beautiful little goats and I see one

0:01:370:01:41

with a pink collar.

0:01:410:01:43

-Who's that?

-That's Roxie.

0:01:430:01:44

She's my favourite.

0:01:440:01:46

She's gorgeous.

0:01:460:01:47

What type of goat are they?

0:01:470:01:49

They are British Saanens.

0:01:490:01:51

What are they very good for?

0:01:510:01:53

-Milking.

-And what else do you do with them?

0:01:530:01:56

We bring them to the shows.

0:01:560:01:58

I bet they win lots of awards.

0:01:580:02:01

Eva, what age is Roxie?

0:02:010:02:03

Roxie is five months old.

0:02:030:02:06

That's still quite young, isn't it?

0:02:060:02:08

-Yes.

-And can you tell me what a baby goat is called?

0:02:080:02:11

A kid, like me.

0:02:110:02:12

That's right. Baby goats are called kids,

0:02:120:02:16

female goats are called nannies and males are billies.

0:02:160:02:20

I love their white coats.

0:02:200:02:21

They are so soft.

0:02:210:02:23

-I really like their ears because they're floppy.

-They are.

0:02:230:02:25

They're floppy and they're very big and long, aren't they?

0:02:250:02:28

Can you tell me what a goat's foot is called?

0:02:280:02:32

They are called hooves and they have two toes.

0:02:320:02:35

That is right. They're really good for climbing, aren't they?

0:02:350:02:39

What noises do goats make?

0:02:390:02:40

-Baa!

-Baa!

0:02:400:02:43

Are you going to do it? Baa!

0:02:430:02:44

Eva, what is your favourite thing about having goats?

0:02:470:02:49

I like to see them jumping and being silly.

0:02:490:02:53

Very silly. I love them.

0:02:530:02:55

Rory, could you tell us some more facts

0:02:550:02:57

about Roxie and her goat friends here?

0:02:570:02:59

Of course, Ferne.

0:03:000:03:01

Saanen goats are sometimes called gentle giants

0:03:040:03:07

because they can grow up to be very big goats.

0:03:070:03:10

The Saanen breed is the largest breed of Swiss goat.

0:03:140:03:17

They have white skin and a short white coat.

0:03:170:03:19

The Saanen goat is a dairy goat, which means they make lots of milk.

0:03:240:03:28

You can drink goats' milk and it can be used

0:03:280:03:31

to make lots of food, like cheese.

0:03:310:03:33

Having a pet means that you have to give it a lot of love,

0:03:450:03:49

care and attention and pet goats can be pretty hard work,

0:03:490:03:52

-can't they, Eva?

-Yes, I look after them every day.

0:03:520:03:56

What do you need to do to look after your pet goats?

0:03:560:03:58

We need to give them water, food and hay and we need to muck them out.

0:03:580:04:03

That sounds like a lot of work.

0:04:030:04:04

-Can I help you out?

-Yes, please, Ferne.

-OK. Let's go.

0:04:040:04:08

See you soon, goats.

0:04:090:04:12

Someone's ready. Hello.

0:04:140:04:17

-Who is this?

-This is Salubrious.

0:04:180:04:21

Hi, Salubrious. Lovely to meet you. She's beautiful.

0:04:210:04:25

-Why is she in here?

-Because we have to put fresh straw in her house.

0:04:250:04:30

That's good. And is this her pen?

0:04:300:04:32

-Yes.

-That is amazing.

0:04:320:04:34

Look at all of those awards.

0:04:340:04:36

Did your family win all of them?

0:04:360:04:37

Yes, our goats are really good at shows.

0:04:370:04:40

They definitely are, they're champions.

0:04:400:04:43

Shall we get it started?

0:04:430:04:45

Nice big handful.

0:04:480:04:51

-Do you want to take this bit?

-Yeah.

0:04:510:04:53

Wow.

0:04:550:04:57

-And you just shake it?

-Yeah.

-It makes it nice and soft.

0:05:000:05:05

Can I help you?

0:05:050:05:07

-Yes, please. Come on in.

-This is my sister, Vanessa.

0:05:070:05:11

OK. We need to break up all the pieces to make it nice and fluffy.

0:05:110:05:16

This is going to be so cosy.

0:05:160:05:18

Salubrious will love this.

0:05:180:05:20

Yes.

0:05:200:05:21

Goats don't like being outside in the rain, do they, Eva?

0:05:210:05:24

No, they don't. They don't even have umbrellas.

0:05:240:05:27

No, they don't have umbrellas.

0:05:270:05:29

It's very important for goats to have both outdoor and indoor areas,

0:05:290:05:32

like this pen.

0:05:320:05:34

Saanen goats have very pale skin so it's good that they have shade

0:05:340:05:37

when it's sunny so they don't get sunburned.

0:05:370:05:40

Great job, Vanessa and Eva.

0:05:400:05:42

This looks very comfy.

0:05:420:05:43

What do we need to do next?

0:05:430:05:45

We need to give them hay, food and water.

0:05:450:05:48

-Shall we go?

-Yes.

-Shall we go?

-Yes.

0:05:480:05:52

Myself and Vanessa will get the hay.

0:05:540:05:56

What's in the goat meal?

0:05:570:05:59

Barley, maize and oats.

0:05:590:06:00

So is it like a goat granola?

0:06:000:06:02

Yes. They love it.

0:06:020:06:03

How often do you give it to them?

0:06:050:06:07

-Twice a day. Two scoops.

-Shall we bring it in?

-Yes.

0:06:070:06:10

-Shall we put it in here?

-Yes.

0:06:140:06:15

Thank you, Vanessa.

0:06:180:06:19

Right, so, what do we need to do next?

0:06:190:06:21

Get the water. Sounds good.

0:06:210:06:23

Do goats drink a lot of water?

0:06:290:06:31

-Yeah.

-And how often do you do this?

0:06:310:06:35

We give them fresh water twice a day.

0:06:350:06:38

That's really important, isn't it?

0:06:380:06:40

-Yes.

-That looks full enough.

0:06:400:06:43

-Shall we put the water here?

-Yes.

0:06:450:06:47

Perfect. Right,

0:06:470:06:49

so she's got fresh water, a nice clean bed and lots of food.

0:06:490:06:53

Shall we get her in and see if she likes it?

0:06:530:06:55

Come on, Salubrious.

0:06:550:06:56

What do you think?

0:06:580:06:59

I think she likes it a lot.

0:07:010:07:03

-Definitely.

-Eva, have we finished?

0:07:030:07:05

We need to give the kids some milk.

0:07:050:07:07

That sounds fun. See you later. Bye, Salubrious.

0:07:070:07:10

So this is where you milk the goats, Eva.

0:07:180:07:20

-And your dad's going to help us. Hiya.

-Hello, Ferne.

0:07:200:07:23

Right, shall we get started?

0:07:230:07:25

Daddy's putting the clusters onto Alice.

0:07:280:07:31

Wow, look at all the milk going through.

0:07:330:07:35

Saanen goats are brilliant dairy goats

0:07:360:07:39

which means that they make loads of milk.

0:07:390:07:41

Look at them go. I can't get over how much milk there is.

0:07:410:07:45

You can just feel it and it's warm.

0:07:450:07:48

Is it warm? Oh, my goodness, it is.

0:07:480:07:54

Shall we take it to the kids?

0:07:540:07:55

-Yes.

-They're going to love this.

0:07:550:07:57

Milk time.

0:08:000:08:02

Move over.

0:08:030:08:06

Look at this. Because these kids are a bit older,

0:08:090:08:12

they don't need milk from their mothers any more,

0:08:120:08:14

but it's nice to give it to them as a treat sometimes.

0:08:140:08:17

-They really are hungry.

-Yes, they are.

0:08:170:08:20

-But we still have one more thing to do. What is it?

-Wash our hands.

0:08:200:08:25

-See you, goats.

-See you, guys.

0:08:250:08:28

We're so lucky it's not raining,

0:08:380:08:40

because Roxie's loving being outside, isn't she?

0:08:400:08:42

She loves her food.

0:08:420:08:44

She does. Eva, if Roxie and the goats could do absolutely anything,

0:08:440:08:47

what would they do?

0:08:470:08:49

If my pet goats could do anything,

0:08:520:08:55

they would be Irish dancers.

0:08:550:08:58

They would enter a big competition

0:08:580:09:01

and wear white dresses with gold sparkles.

0:09:010:09:06

All the other goat friends would love their dances

0:09:060:09:09

and give them really high scores.

0:09:090:09:13

They would win a really big trophy.

0:09:130:09:15

Sometimes, goats need to be washed and brushed to keep their coats nice

0:09:230:09:27

and clean and healthy.

0:09:270:09:28

Do you like brushing Roxie?

0:09:280:09:30

-Yes.

-She's very soft, isn't she?

0:09:300:09:33

And do you brush all of your goats?

0:09:330:09:34

Yes, I brush them before shows so their coats are shiny and soft.

0:09:340:09:38

And your goats do lots of shows, don't they?

0:09:380:09:41

Yes, I'm going to do a show for you today and you can be the judge.

0:09:410:09:46

That sounds like so much fun.

0:09:460:09:47

I think Roxie is looking brushed and ready. Should we go to the show?

0:09:470:09:51

-Yeah.

-Come on.

0:09:510:09:52

Eva goes to lots of agricultural goat shows

0:09:570:10:00

and I can't wait to be a judge

0:10:000:10:01

at the show she's putting on for me today.

0:10:010:10:03

Our first obstacle is a tricky one.

0:10:050:10:07

The cans.

0:10:070:10:08

So, competitors have to weave their goats in and around the cans,

0:10:080:10:12

being really careful not to knock them over.

0:10:120:10:15

Straight from the cans,

0:10:150:10:16

you go on to the big climb and that's where goats have to be really

0:10:160:10:21

steady with perfect balance

0:10:210:10:22

to climb up all the way onto this hay bale and do

0:10:220:10:25

a big jump off to the last area, which is the judging area.

0:10:250:10:29

So I'm going to stand here and I'm going to inspect the goats to see if

0:10:290:10:32

they have lovely clean noses, bright eyes, good strong backs, shiny,

0:10:320:10:37

soft coats and good hooves.

0:10:370:10:41

It's going to be so exciting and we're ready for Eva and Roxie.

0:10:410:10:45

Perfect start, well done.

0:10:470:10:49

Great job around the cans. You didn't even hit one.

0:10:530:10:56

Big climb. This is really tough for such a young goat.

0:10:560:10:59

Remember, she's only five months old.

0:10:590:11:02

She definitely deserves a bit of a nibble at the end, doesn't she?

0:11:020:11:05

Good job, Roxie.

0:11:050:11:06

And what about the big jump.

0:11:060:11:08

Come on, Roxie!

0:11:080:11:10

That was great.

0:11:100:11:12

If you'd like to bring her over here to the judging area.

0:11:120:11:15

Let's check out your nose.

0:11:150:11:18

She's got a lovely clean nose.

0:11:180:11:21

She's got really bright eyes.

0:11:210:11:23

And she's got a lovely strong back.

0:11:240:11:26

Let's see your hooves, Roxie.

0:11:260:11:27

They are perfect. They look really healthy.

0:11:290:11:32

Great marks, well done.

0:11:320:11:34

Roxie is such a beautiful goat, isn't she?

0:11:350:11:38

Gorgeous, Roxie, and she did so well.

0:11:380:11:41

I can't believe she's only five months old.

0:11:410:11:43

-Are you very proud of her?

-Yes, I'm so, so proud of her.

0:11:430:11:47

I think that you and Roxie did amazing in that.

0:11:470:11:51

You are a top goat owner and I have something special for you.

0:11:510:11:55

First place in the greatest goat show ever.

0:11:550:11:58

-Thank you, Ferne.

-No problem.

0:11:580:12:00

Thank you so much for having me over.

0:12:000:12:03

I had a lot of fun coming here.

0:12:030:12:05

-Thank you very much.

-You're welcome.

0:12:050:12:07

-Hi, Rory.

-Hi, Ferne.

0:12:190:12:21

Hiya, Hector.

0:12:210:12:23

-How was your day?

-Oh, it was fantastic.

0:12:230:12:25

I had such a great time with my friends.

0:12:250:12:27

-It was really fun.

-Oh, great.

0:12:270:12:29

Well, as you can see, I've been catching up

0:12:290:12:31

on some serious cuddle time with Hector.

0:12:310:12:32

I can see that and he's loving it.

0:12:320:12:34

Pets are great but remember,

0:12:340:12:35

you shouldn't touch an animal unless the owner says it's OK first.

0:12:350:12:39

Two pets you definitely can play with, though, are ours.

0:12:390:12:41

Go to the CBeebies website and play the My Pet And Me game.

0:12:410:12:44

What a fantastic time we've had.

0:12:440:12:46

We just love meeting you and your pets.

0:12:460:12:48
