Hello! My name is Mary and I wanted to ask you all some questions about my goat. I am very new to goats so here is what happened. I went to this guy who had a ton of goats of all breeds. I wanted either an Alpine or Nubian. So I went and got an Oberhasli girl, a Swiss boy, and I couldn't resist and got this little lamb girl. Well when I got home I realized they were ALL boys! The Oberhasli is a wether. So I called the guy. I liked the Oberhasli because I was looking for a pack goat and he seems to have a great "follow you around" attitude. So I was going to give him back the Swiss boy. About a week later, he ended up getting really sick and passed away. (FYI- I took them all to the vet and had meds for the Oberhasli and the Swiss) So the guy would not give me my money back so I had to do a credit thing. So I got an Alpine in milk. She was very very thin but she was the sweetest one he had. So now you have some background info on how I have gotten my goats (and a lesson learned). So I have been looking for a buck for my Alpine (Gretta). I know they are supposed to go into season in the fall so I wanted a head start. Well I was talking to this one breeder and she asked if she was tattooed. I looked and she is. So I was hoping you guys can help me find out what they mean and how I can maybe track down the breeder. The right ear is X20 the left ear is 0W4. I was told these are not a common sequence of numbers. Also, come to find out, the guy I got her from said he ran every all together, bucks, does, sheep, cows, etc. So now she may be prego. She has been on a grain for goats, an herbal dewormer, goat mineral from Purina, and an herbal supplement. She also has Alfalfa and grazes all day. I have been milking her because I thought I was supposed to and now I feel like I should dry her up in case she is pregnant. Can you all please give me some advise. I found all of this out last night and couldn't sleep because I was so worried about her. I am not set up for birthing. I can be soon but until then, all the goats sleep together.
