The heat of summer is here and I decided to grab the old Bubba and shave his down to see what was under all that hair. His picture is to the right. He is a sweet boy, lead trained and was no trouble to put on a stand and get his hair cut. He had not been shaved down in a couple of years. I think he appreciated the clip in the heat. The picture to the left is Mr General. I can never find anyone around to pose the goats and have to chase them around and try to get them in a natural pose. Mr General is standing with his front in a low spot. So his top line is not perfect. He is show clipped and we can see his great conformation and long, dairy neck.
The picture to the left is Blue with her quints, yes, her 5 little darlings. They are all blue eyed and doing well. She had 3 boys and 2 girls. I am helping out, supplementing 3 once or twice a day with a bottle of either goat milk or replacer. You can see the famous EARS. When a Nigerian is crossed with a Boer, the ears give them away. They will be either airplane, mule ears or folded over like the little girl to the far left. I think the mule ears are cute. The babies are growing very fast and Blue is milking like a Holstein to try and keep up. They will end up being larger then Blue and built heavier. The does are two teated and the Blue eyes make them really stand out.
We are taking reservations for the babies. You can take them as bottle babies or wait until the darlings are weaned. The choice is yours.
Enough for now...
