    The only lamanchas I have had are these two I picked up last fall since I wouldn't have to worry about g6s as ump does. I'm not even sure what I think of them. I will be selling them though, because my -nubians are mean to them.

    yeah, goats seem to discriminate by ear type. :\

    So, today Prynne is in the kidding stall!!!!!!! :weee
    Another really exciting kidding for us. Again for minis. GW thought it wise to breed two does closely related to Kiegh in case one didn't give us a buck. Smart girl that GW!

    I love kidding season. I love lining up the does/bucks.

    I don't know- guess I still get like a little kid with getting so excited. I know not everything works out the way I hope but stilll.... it is fun and exciting. I do wonder sometimes, I rarely see people get excited about a line up. :hu
    Shoot, I get excited about other people's line ups.
    I'm on a few FB groups and geesh, it's like everyone is in competition instead of being happy for each other.
    I never want to lose my joy over goats.

    All night glued to the cameras. Worried... almost went out at 4am to do a sweep...
    I am so tired. Need sleep.
    Prynne had twin bucks! GW's plan of ensuring we got a buck was a good one but geesh, Prynne, 1 doe would have been nice.
    Prynne is blaming Kiegh.
    Here are the two boys.
    F-1 50/50% Miniature Lamanchas
    These boys are big! They each took 10oz. :eek:

    SBC, you've got beautiful goats. Love those earless mini-manchas and nice nigerians. Not good for discouraging me from finding nice lamanchas around here (lucky for my husband, there seems to be a focus on nigerians, nubians, and mini nubians, so I guess I'll focus on the nicest nigerians I can breed and forego the big goat discussion with him). I'll just have to enjoy the poetry of your goats through your pictures. Kidding threads are a blast.
