    For the first time EVER we have decided to keep 2 bucklings form our kiddings in Spring 2020. Angus is an F1 mini LaMancha born April 14. So he's currently a solid 4 months old. Tick (aka "Mr. Tickles") is also an F1 mini, but he is 3/4 Nigerian and 1/4 LaMancha. He was born May 6. So he's...

    Minnie had 2 little bucklings last evening. They are SO handsome! My daughter has not named them yet, so I call them "Thing 1" and "Thing 2".
  3. Birth Announcements
    We had a lovely spring blizzard this past week. It left us without power, phone, water or internet for a few days. And, of course, that's when Jasmine kidded. She did her work without so much as a grunt - so mellow! It was definitely the least "dramatic" birth we've ever had here. She...

    I have heard differing opinions on whether or not the chances of girl kids are increased or decreased the more or less time a doe is with a buck. Is there really any truth to this? Has anybody else had experience with it? Thanks in advance.
  6. Goat Frenzy
    Hello. I have personally had two bucklings and many friends who have mainly had bucklings this season. A fellow breeder said her ratio so far has been 10 bucklings to 2 doelings and that her quint bucklings did not help:) I am wondering if any of you guys have experienced this? :GAAH: Do you...

    Hello, I've been treating two bucklings for joint ill for about two weeks now. The first one to go down was immobile for 4-5 days and couldn't get up at all. The other one could get up on his hind legs but not on his front legs. They've both been given big doses of antibiotics for 4 days. They...

    So my two Nigerian Dwarfs bucklings have not been given any CD/T shots and I will be banding them today. I read that they need to be given Tetanus anti-toxin to prevent Tetanus, but I have no idea on the dosage since they are smaller goats and only 11 weeks old. I also read that the anti-toxin...

    I was just wondering what everyone thinks about giving their goats medicated goat feed to prevent coccidia? I have two 10 week old bucklings who were diagnosed with Coccidia and have been treated with Albon. Today will be their last dosage. I was wondering what everyone's luck is with using a...
  10. Beginners Goat Raising
    So our 9 month old cashmere goat boys broke into our girls' pen. We arent sure how long they were in there, but now we're starting to worry that our girls have been impregnated by the 8 charming bucklings that have just entered rut. Is pregnancy possible at this point? We're worried that our...
  11. Beginners Goat Raising
    My alpine doe Daisy had twin bucklings the end of February. I began to wean them at about 2 1/2 months by separating them from their mama, first at night then all day in a separate pasture. They are eating plenty of alfalfa & drinking water no problem. So its been three weeks or more, and when...
  12. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hello all! I'm new here, so go easy on me.(; Three or so days ago, we went to auction and purchased two one-week-old Nubian bucklings. I've never had goats before (despite always wanting them), but my stepdad has a ton of experience with them and so we're going off of what we've been told, what...
