    You wanted new babies to look at and this is the best I could do for you! We just bought the mama at the sale last month and all we knew is that she had been exposed, so last week she started bagging up so we thought she had several weeks, not.So I found this new little guy when I went out to feed awhile ago. I couldnt believe the black! He is so cute

    Between the spats on his feet, and the white cumberbund, he looks like he's dressed up for the opera.

    just too precious. Do you keep them all or trade/sell. We bred puppies for awhile yrs ago - basenjis - and had to stop - to hard to part with the puppies. How many goats do u have?

    He makes 11, we just sold a few and bought 3 new does. Last year we had about 25 but we lost down to 9 after having a round of Vitamin E & selinium deficiency, They said it was because of all the early spring rains we had and the grass grew too fast to absorb the selinium from the soil. It was a nerve wracking time for sure!

    They are Boer goats which is a meat goat. We dont have any 100% , We do have one that is 98% and down to one 50% which is the lowest percentage that can be registered and we have 2 that are just grade, cant register.

    Where I grew up they have a festical of sorts every year they call "Home coming" The lions club I think it is, has a really nice mobile kitchen and the cook BBQ goat meat. They always sell out. They call them Goat Burgers and top them with slaw. I have never been able to cook it to taste like theirs and never tasted any like theirs. I think they butcher soemthing like 100 goats a year fresh just for the event which lasts a week.

    We take them to the sale and beyond that I try not to think about because these were my babies! But I am sure the buyers are either getting them for meat or maybe just for breeding to build their herds,( that is my choice of thought) :lol:
