    Just catching up... wow! I saw the video of your little one. Stinking cute as can be!
    Glad you found homes for you goats!
    Love your new gun too!

    Hope the rest of the kiddings go well!

    I'm getting attached to the little one. It's going to be hard to let her go.
    We are going to let the people who got Forget me Not (Me Me), have her. Me Me is Isaac's sister.
    They love her. She is a lap goat. The wether they got with her isn't as friendly. They want another lap goat. I think we will let them take her when she is about 10 lbs. Opal's quads will all take a bottle too, so I think we will send one of the bucks too.

    So Taffy says "hold my beer" while I have this 6 lb buckling while you guys are feeding and not paying attention because all of the goats are yelling to be fed
    No kidding
    Mauurine gets our house goat out of a stall ( her first day outside) and take her in and give her a bottle
    The goats are all yelling to be fed
    I feed the bucks first
    Maurine starts giving the does feed and says " Hey we missed something" Taffy had a kid
    Apparently I got her water bucket out of the stall and didn't even notice she had a kid

    Just put out 2 week old house goat 4 lbs 2 oz with this 6 lb behemoth for comparison

    I think we will try to sell.this guy as a buck
    We are the worse goat marketers ever
    I don't know why not
    Taffy is a finished grand champion with a 2*M (GCH on her papers)
    Appraised 90 VEEE as a 5 year old so her permanent score
    His Paternal grand dam is Zamia
    9 time best of breed
    91 VEEE
    Superior Genetics designation (SGCH)
    On paper everything you would want in a buckling
    Dam and Paternal Grand Dam had E on udder
    I think we will put him on the interweb for $500

    Too bad I’m not in the market for another buck! ;)

    Best of luck selling him!

    Maybe the issue is that you won’t let them leave in boxes...(I wouldn’t either though!) Trying to say that you don’t sell to just anyone...
