This is Sandy, the largest of all our goats. She has never had kids since we got her. I thing she is really old and not likely to get bred. She pushes all the others around but is not really a leader, just cranky.
This is Big White and her two kids born on St. Pat's day, Patsy and Hot Rod. Bertha's Billy is their sire. Hot Rod is our new herd billy, but I don't think he has bred any of the nannies yet this year. I think Big White is bred to Bertha's Billy again. I love the way Patsy's ears fly out when she runs.
This is Little Grey and Baby Grey. Bertha's Billy is her sire.
Bertha and her new babies. Bertha's Billy is their sire.
Bertha's Billy and Lil Sis, born in May 2012. These are the only two kids from 2012. Bertha's Billy is now a weather and will not be siring any more kids, but I think we have three nannies that will have kids by him this winter.
This is Half-N-Half, Lit Sis' kid born in May of this year. He is a weather now.
This is Black Jack, Berth'a kid born in February of this year. He is a weather now, also. George calls him Tippy because of his white tipped tail, but I think Tippy is a dog's name. Black Jack is a much more fitting Billy Goat Gruff name.
So there we are, a herd of thirteen, and ten of those are thanks to Bertha.
