Congratulations! Look at those ears! I'm thinking daddy was the Nubian!
Do you have some young lambs/sheep she can bond with?

Well Chevy doesn't seem to have any friends in the flock. She's usually off by herself. So I kind of figured these two could buddy up. Chevy was a bottle baby that I got from another farm. So she doesn't even have family in this flock. When I brought her outside, Chevy seemed to like her. The two ewe lambs that were born here were the ones that were scared of the baby goat. The 2012 ewes ignored her. But Ciqala and Ali were sniffing her and mamma baaing at her. She was just walking around trying to find me. She was maaing so loud and I was like "I'm right here!" and then she settled down. But right now she is attached to my hip. I even took her to McDonald's this morning :) Last night we went to PetsMart and got a cute little collar for her. And then she slept next to me on the couch. She and my dog are cuddling next to me on the couch right now. This goat loves being a lap goat. She was bouncing in the passenger seat today, but on the way home she sat in my lap and fell asleep. When I leave to go to work tonight, she'll be in a dog cage for a couple hours until my mom gets home from work (my brother doesn't like watching the bottle babies when he's home) and she will probably be let out.

Hehehe :D They had like 10 or 20 little baby goats I could choose from, there were white goats and there were colored goats. They said they would prefer to keep the colored goats for their own herd (they have 100 goats at their other farm) so that narrowed me down to about four white baby goats. Three of them were La Manchas. But I loved this one's ears so I got this one :D

She hasn't been disbudded yet, she's about two weeks old. I still don't know if I want her disbudded or not. :idunno Living with a flock of polled sheep, I think it would be a good idea. But I'm not sure.

Yep I just posted on a Facebook group wanting my goat disbudded, lots of people actually recommended my vet! But a $75 farm call + however much she charges is kind of ehh. But I will call her tonight and I will probably go with her. She can look at my ewes while she's here to make sure they're doing alright.

Yes they had lots of la manchas! Most of them were probably la manchas.
