    They are Boer goats. Most of them are registered with the ABGA, which allows percentages, most of ours are at least 75%-98% Boer. We do have several that are not registered as they are just grade.

    Melissa, just caught up with this thread, what a little cutie pie she is. She can be an international goat herder, we have loads of goats over here, which reminds me I have to take a picture of our local goat man, he lives on a slope and so do his goats, sure as I speak these goats have got 2 short legs and 2 long legs that slope is so steep. :lol: i will try and get a picture of them. I couldnīt believe it when I first saw it.

    Do you make Goats Cheese. Should think its pretty time consuming, but it is lovely.

    I would love to see the pictures of those goats!!! :lol:
    These are actually meat goats, not dairy. We just sell them 'cause frankly, after helping them be born and sometimes bottle feeding them and such I could never eat one!!!!!!!

    Love the pictures with your GD, way too cute. About 6 weeks ago we got into goats, 29 nannies and a billie. What fun. We ran electric wire inside the pasture barb wire fence. So far so good. Have been told that if water can go thru a fence, so can a goat! Ours are boar influence, boy are we learnin' about goats :!: DH says they are four legged bush hogs. Can't wait to have babies. :D

    I couldnīt eat one that I had brought into the world or hand reared.
    Its quite a delicacy here, but I have never tried it. think they mainly keep them for the milk and for making cheese.

    I love the baby ones they are so cute.
