Goats for sale


Chocolate Milk, sold to Cousin Linda.


Same.


4 young males.


Same, will go to sale Saturday, weather permitting.  It is supposed to snow.


Patches daughter Miracle.  She has lost one set of kids and the last one died before it was 24 hours old.  Going to sale on Saturday.


Holly, out of Big White.  Mother of Chocolate Milk.  A keeper for now.  But she has aborted twice. She will need to do better this time.


Cher. Out of Patsy.  Keeping for now.  She is not the best mother.


Two billies out of Cher, also in pic above.  Going to sale.  I thought the lighter colored one was a female, but not.


Red and Blackie, our best mothers.


Same.


Big White, The Boss.


The two behind are out of Little Red.  I did not get good pics of them. Born last spring.  Keepers for now.


Big White's daughter, Seven.  She will have kids within  a month or so.  Hope she does alright. Born last spring.


Same.


Brown goat out of Blackie with the forgettable name. Born last spring. I guess we need a new name that is not so forgettable.  She will kid in a month or so.  Hoping for a good outcome.


Ivy, Cher's daughter, born last spring.  I am debating on selling her.  Debating with myself as George is no help.  


Red's Patches.  A good looking kid.  Born lastfall. 


Same.


Big White's two nannies. Born last fall. Good looking goats.  Keepers for sure.

We are selling one grown female, possibly two.  Have two yearlings that will kid soon.  Hopefully everything will be good with that.  Little Red's two both lost their kids because they were too young and too small to have them.  Then we have the three nannies for the fall crop.  That is 5 grown females, 5 yearling females, and 3 of the fall kids.  Thirteen females, no billies after this week.
