This guy is Alpine/ Oberhasi and we named him  " Blackie".  I have no idea if he will breed my 1/2 Nubian, but he sure is a cutie and is fitting in just fine.  I will keep him in with the 2 girls for a couple of months.

Wow...look at those horns!!!  They'd be deadly if he got in a fight with someone.  hahaha.  I do adore black goats.  He's such a pretty thing.  Very tiny head and I love that.  How old is he?  He looks very young. Except for the size of his horns, I would have thought he was maybe 6 months to a year.

That is what I thought too and after I uploaded the pictures I realized how big his horns are!  I am guessing a long yearling and maybe I won't worry about him breeding her after all!

He is a sweet guy and is very nice to the girls.

 He is so cute.  I would look at getting him some Copper.  He has a bit of red in his hind leg.  I would say Copper def.

Yeah, I agree with Lori...a little copper would go a long way with him.  Would make him sparkle instead of looking dull colored.  He is a doll though.  Here in a few months he won't even look like the same goat...with your TLC he'll look like a grand champion. Smiley

I never noticed that on him. No doubt he needs it, everyone does and I am going to order it after Christmas ( once the current billing cycle on my cc ends) Embarrassed

Julie you know what I do?  I order the calf bolus instead of the goat one...if you read the directions, you'll find that you need to give 3 or 4 of the goat bolus's to each goat, with the calf bolus's they are already done up in the amount you need.  I give Prince an entire calf bolus but the girls I divide one in half and give each girl half.  I put it over their feed and they eat it right down.

Thanks Birdie,

That is what I plan to do.  I can easily feed everyone individually( by hand) and will just divide the calf bolus with a little grain .
