    Enjoy some pictures of Cypress! He's finally home! Cy is very loving toward people but a little wary of the other goats. I think he'll be feeling more at home in a day or two though. IMG_5268.JPG IMG_5270.JPG

    He is so handsome! Congratulations!

    Just wondering if you did have Rosie go to the breeder's place? If she took she should be around two months along. Is she looking rounder?

    @Goatgirl47, the breeder told me right away when he returned her that he never saw her come in to heat, so I'm quite sure she isn't pregnant. There are certainly no signs of it I can see. I'll still be watching to be on the safe side, but I'm thinking we're going. To have to wait until next spring for any babies.
