    We will post when we can get some pics- right now they are milked every 6 hours roughly then they will go to 8 hours then 2x day...
    Right now we keep the udder pretty empty to mimic a kid being on them.
    CG gave 42oz the other day ....yesterday 48 .... their milk is still coming in. We think they are doing good so far.

    Wow it's been a while since I've posted on this thread!

    Fingers crossed for kids in five months!

    Foxy Lady was bred to Seth.

    Not the buck I had originally planned, but she just wasn't impressed with the buck I chose for her. She is a coming two year old and needs to start working. I told Foxy today that she can no longer be a free-loading slacker, time to work!

    I will probably pull blood in 30 days and send it out for a check. She is timid around bucks and doesn't give them much opportunity. I left her with the buck all day, so fingers crossed she takes :fl

    This lil guy is 12 weeks old now!
    This is Clover's single kid from August.

    We separated him from Carolina's Girl's two does (Totality & Eclipse) during the State Fair weekend in Oct.

    He is a handful! He has his mommas deep body! We are keeping him around for awhile.

    At 12wks of age he is suppose to have spunk and energy....I really like his colors and markings....and that hair on his forehead and down his nose....that's a heck of an eagle point....the whole bloodline looks very well....:)

    Thanks @CntryBoy777 - we are waiting to see how he grows out a little more....
    I do not like real refined bone in legs, especially bucks... they are a little more refined looking (IMO) than what I like.
    Not my goat though- It is @Goat Whisperer 's she makes the call. LOL
    He is only 12 weeks so we will see.. I like lots of other stuff about him though. :)
