    Rolls you are so right... lots of old timers here just won't cull or change up how things "have been done" .... funny too how when we talk to some around here and say we have Kiko's they say Ky-ko Whats a Kyko? Ain't never heard a no Kyko goat. :lol:

    Rolls- I am secretly trying to get Babsbag's spotted baby...I have a plan... ;)

    And I agree... you started all this spot obsession! :p

    I agree with Rolls- there are good Boers and there are bad Boers.

    I have a theory- when they first came here they were so valuable people did everything to save every kid. Not an issue if you send those weak ones to market but they didn't! Every female that hit the ground was sold as breeding stock and the rest we say is history.

    Then this issue was compounded by the show industry. Goats were raised in lot feed operations, never exposed to parasites and again, the registration made them valuable. Problem compounded.

    I have been to Rolls' place, her goats are well cared for and wisely bred. I have seen her make those very difficult culling decisions. I respect her and would recommend her goats to anyone.

    I agree Rolls, I think she could do boers there if they were chosen and raised correctly. She IS NOT getting my buckling, but I might send her a doe :)

    And...I *do not* dump show feed in these guys, nor do I hook them up to any fancy pants equipment to build muscle. If they can't look like that from genetics alone...I don't want them.
