    I was fortunate enough to witness this today. To my knowledge, it's the first time they bred.

    The goats facial expressions in the last pic are hilarious... "Just WHAT are they doing!"


    Seriously though, congrats! Hope you get a nice baby cria!

    Thank you. Actually, they had more than those two goats watching. The other goats were standing a bit farther away from the camera lens range, so they didn't get into the picture. Honestly, I was surprised that they didn't interfere with the breeding as it lasted for about 30 minutes.

    Looks like you should have a cria in 11 months. Good luck!
