So since my last post I've been able to have them hold still enough to see what I thought were moonspots are just white spots, which I'm ok with lol.
I am keeping both of these kids out of Bella and fox. They are tentatively named Rapunzel and ryder

I know! That's how it is with my goats but also throw in a few spoiled chickens.
Freesia 13 days fresh 12 hour fill, I forgot to get a pic from the rear View attachment 62504
Bella is getting big! So excited to see these kids View attachment 62505cami's buckling (below) goes to his new home in the next week or so. He has gotten so friendly over the last few weeks(was one you had to chase down to pet and as you can see in the pic that's no longer the case ) no I didn't have anything on my finger and he was not bottle fed, he was jealous because I wasn't petting him (only have two hands unfortunately that doesn't work when you have 6+goats wanting rubbed on lolView attachment 62506

sarabi❤ It is amazing to see how the genetics shape the goat and make half siblings so different. Sarabi is a thicker boned doeling with (what I think) is pretty nice body capacity at 7 months (d.o.b. 2/22/19 as to where Eva (again in my opinion) has more length and not quite as much depth at this time (she was born 4/3/19)

We went to the show with Eva and sarabi! We were supposed to bring a few more but one doe jumped off a log this morning and had a slight limp (did feel her over) so I scratched her and had my mom check on her and she wasn’t limping at 1.
Rapunzel absolutely refuses to walk on a lead so she was scratched as well and I didn’t have any help to walk nala as my brother was sick.

Anyhow! Eva places 3rd under judge Jackson noble in ring 1 and 2nd under judge rusty repp in ring 2! Sarabi didn’t place not sure if it would of been different if I had shown her or not. She was shown by 2 strange people (as in she didn’t know them and I met them this morning)

These are some photos of sarabi that were posted by another at the show. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to get this lady’s name that showed her for me in round one but I am oh so grateful to her! I would of had to scratch one of my doelings if I hadn’t had help from “strangers” as both were in the same class.
There were a lot of excellent goats at this show! Very happy to of shown along side them
