    Now that we've had them for almost a month I should probably introduce them!

    We picked up Aravis and Lord Drinian at One Fine Acre in N.C. when we took my daughter to camp. We are so pleased with them.

    Aravis has captured everyone's heart- even my husband's who frequently gets frustrated with ornery goat antics. She imeditately adopted our Nigerian doe as her foster mommy and they even cuddle at night. We thought she's play with our Lamancha doeling, but while they get along she must just know she's a Nigerian. Maybe the tiny ears bother her or something? LOL. My five year old gives her the bottle every day.

    Lord Drinian, who we sometimes call mohawk man (see picture) has been keeping our one buckling company. We weren't originally planning on the buckling, but I really liked his genetics and the fact they will bring something different to Florida. He has a big name to grow into.

    We also received a yearling grade LaMancha in trade for one of our bucklings. (Black doe in pics) She's actually related to our herd queen. Shes very nice and *probably* bred to kid in October. We were going to sell her after she kids... but I'm having second thoughts. (Shhhhh. Don't tell my daughter who wants to keep every goat forever. )

    So, we are up to five LaManchas - Two Seniors in milk and three Jrs with two of those getting bred any day now, two Nigerian does- One in milk and one to breed in a year or so, and a Nigerian buckling. That's not counting the LaMancha buckling we still have for sale. We are also borrowing a Lamancha buck for a month or two to breed the does. I'm feeling more like a farmer every day!

    Wow
    They are really growing.
    Great job.
    Always like for our goats to go to homes where they will be loved.

    When Full House Farm came to NC to get the goats we took advantage of the opportunity to get one of their awesome goat milking stands. We built the wooden stand you find plans for on Fiasco Farms, but it is a major pain to carry to shows. It is heavy, hard to move around, and takes up a lot of space in the truck.
    Full House Farm's stand collapses easily, is easy to put together, and the workmanship is excellent. And even though my daughter Rachel wanted the pink one, you can get it in all colors. :thumbsup

    Got some more pictures of Lord Drenian today. We try to get him out of the buck pen at least once a week to socialize and work on walking on a lead.

    Haha. I was reminded that it's been that long this week at the North Florida Fair. Aravis is a 4 yr old and her Daughter Gwen is a 2 year old (she will actually be 3 in a month!) now. They both just had triplets in October. I'll have to post some pictures. Two of Aravis's are little black polled babies with wattles. I remember her dam was black, too, right?
