Expanding the goat herd

Standard

We just brought home three goats, to add to our Heinz-57 wethers, Casper and Chomby.  These new kids are spring babies, a wether (Puppy, name to be changed later), and two does, Laverne and Shirley.  Puppy and Shirley are full Boer goats (meat breed); Laverne is a Boer/Alpine cross, so she is a lovely blonde color and has longer legs than the other two.  Our little herd is complete for now.  We won’t breed the does until next year.  Once my tech support person (husband Lowell) helps me figure out how to post pictures, I will get some up on the site.  It’s fun to watch the five kids get acquainted!  Here’s an old proverb about goats:  “If a fence can hold water, it can hold a goat.”
