March 2, 2011 goat babies!

Bandit had triplets. A big buckling, and two very tiny doelings. Raechel named the Buckling Sleepy Bear :) Faithy named the smallest black doe Grace, and Kela named the whiter doe Ninja.

Grace died late Wednesday night, March 2nd. She never could walk. It was very sad. We are bottle feeding Ninja, because she was stuck under a board when she was first born and her mama rejected her.

Sleepy bear is nursing from his mama and doing well.

Ninja is taking a bottle and seems to be thriving!

February or March Babies

10-11-10

We bred all our girls with Jackson for February or March babies next year. We will see what good little goaties we will get. We hope for healthy pregnancies and good, easily deliveries for all our girlies.

Belle

Alpine grade doe





We got Belle from Harold Marshall in South Carolina, along with her dam, Patches in 2009. Sadly Patches, who was quite old at age 16, passed away in January of 2010.

We attempted to breed Patches and Belle to a Saanen buck in Lower Salem, OH in the fall of 2009. She might have been bred and then miscarried. No babies. :(

She was with our Nigerian Dwarf buck Jackson this 2010 breeding season for 6 weeks from July 24 til September 5th. Hopefully she took, I am anxious to see Alpine/Nigerian Dwarf crosses!

She might not ever take, because she had never been bred and she was 5 years old when we got her.
