My twin Mini Oberhasli doelings left today. Went to a great new home. WooHoo! the 2 bucklings of triplets left last week. and the Lamancha doelings is spoken for. Finally!

SO, while numbers have gone down over the past week, it will go back up when I get my 3 Nigerian kids next week.

Typical "Goat math!"

So how many goats do you have now?  How many breeders and kids?

And how is/are your leg(s)?  healing up OK?

It's a typical goat herders life...breed, fall in love with babies, sell, and sorrow when they leave....it's not easy being a goat herder when those little ones reach deep into your heart.  At least you have your new nigi's coming in soon.  Those are so cute, even as adults they are little heart throbs.

It is a nice feeling when the load is lightened!  Good luck with your newcomers!


I have sold 11 goats this week  Smiley

I had to sell 2 adult does because I have 6 of this years girls that I COULD . NOT. PART. WITH !

So I sold 2 young bucks.

2 adult does ( with their 2 doelings)

3  single doelings.

Thankfully the 2 boys went together and the 3 single doelings went with one of the adults with her kids.  Very good and loving homes.

I still have 12 boys to unload but I am afraid the majority will go to the sale.  All my girls available have sold.

I am not really sure how many goats I have, I'm afraid to count. Last time I counted I had 35. That was a while ago. I should probably do it some day.

Holy crap!  On one acre, and doing all the work (thinking being mobbed) by yourself?!  Just plain Wow!  You're my new heroine!

Wow Deb, 35  Faint  That is a lot of goats on one acre of land.  That triples if not quadruples your work load.  And you have the horses, and chickens and the dogs as well.  My gosh.  I'd trade places with you any day of the week!!!  Cheesy Afro

Julie that's awesome that you got good homes for yours.  Those are hard to come by these days.  I do hope the rest of them find homes without the sale barn involvement.
