Goat kids, that is We have four kids ready to go to new homes – one buck, three does. In July we’ll have 2 wethers and another buck weaned and ready to go. I may be selling some of our older does in milk come mid-summer – still trying to decide on what to do about that. But here are some pictures of the ones you can take home as soon as you can get the money out of the bank and drive here!
First is Fennel, the buck. He was born on February 24, 2017, to Petunia. Petunia is our oldest living doe, born on our farm in 2010. She has turned 7 this year. Most years she has had triplets, and also had quads one year. She’s been a good producer of milk for us over the years, and was our highest producer when she was younger.
Next up – Hydrangea. She is such a beautiful little girl – black with lots of moon spots! She’s only the 2nd black kid Petunia has ever had. (Dandelion was the first, but that was way back in 2011.) Born 2/24/2017. Sister of Fennel, above.
The next two were both born to Dandelion on 2/20/2017. As stated above, Dandelion is one of Petunia’s kids, born in 2011 here on our farm. She’s been a great milker, also, with a butter-soft udder and good-sized teats, and is very easy to milk. She has produced mostly triplets like her mother. This year we’re keeping one of her kids because she’ll be retired in 2 years, probably, and I want one that looks like her to continue that bloodline. (The one we’re keeping is a blue roan with moon spots. Look for her kids next year.)
So here is Sweet Pea. A cute little doe. She’s a little more plain – not all the flashy moon spots, but she’ll still be a great milk goat when she grows up. Sorry for the poor picture. Somehow she lost her collar, which made it difficult to get her to stand still.
And then Moonflower. Wow! Just wow! Look at all those spots! I’m expecting she’ll be the first to go, so if you want her, speak quickly!
Here is her registration paper. Lineage for Sweet Pea is the same as Moonflower’s since they are sisters.
