    just to brighten everyone's spirit.
    born this morning, a buck and a doe
    half boer, mother "Susan"
    half nubian, father "Boris"( killed by wolves)
    Boris' bloodline lives, i am pleased about that.

    i havn't named them yet but am leaning to "Buckwheat" and "Darla"

    Congratulations!! We have 10 new kids here. Three have names: Hazel (a runt from a litter of three), and Snowflake and Belle, named for their grannies. They are recruits to replace mortalities in our milking herd. The others will sacrifice themselves to help keep the others alive...
    And you can't get any cuter than kids, can you?
    Enjoy!

    What kind of goats do you have? Do you keep them for pets?

    I have boers but traded for a nubian buck last year.
    all my animals are pets.
    I seem to attract spoiled animals.

    I prefer La Manchas and La Mancha crosses here. Lots of ears freeze off when the kids are born and those long-eared breeds are at most risk. I try to breed for later kidding and the last batch was born two weeks ago. It still freezes at night but no so badly that the does can't get the kids cleaned up and warm enough not to freeze their ears off. Since I'm trying to build a dairy business, I do have to sell the culls, both doelings and bucklings. I also have to pay attention to genetics. I have two bucks to keep things varied enough to avoid inbreeding and I have to change them out every couple of years. But I love watching the kiddos. They are that cute. Not a lot of TV out this way, of course.
