    Here's a picture of Josie right after we got her on May 23rd.

    I, myself, prefer the caramels to the agouties, but seeing Josie now...I have quite like blacks. :greengrin: She has come a far way and I am hoping she will produce babies just as beautiful as she is. I am so very glad that I took a chance on her! It has really paid off IMO! This girl will have a home here even after she is retired. :)

    Her coat looks absolutely wonderful and she looks great - did you just change her feed or what did you do with her???

    Thanks! :) The girl we got her from had her own feed mixed with molasses and sunflower seeds and things along that nature, but I changed her over to our own feed. And she was getting alfalfa I believe and she now gets grass. But I do believe now, looking back, that when we got her she had a bit of a copper defiency.

    And we basically have her some TLC. Before she HATED people touching her now she'll jump on the gate wanting attention. And was wild on the lease. But I have worked all summer with her and she is probably my best behaved goat. :) She really has come full circle.

    Pretty doe!

    Sometimes just a change in minerals will go a LONG way. Since she had the rust color on her back legs I would agree that the cooper was off - it is amaizing what a difference even one mineral can make!

    She looks good!

    What a difference! I agree with the copper theoryif you look at the first picture she had a bit of a fish tail going on.

    Thanks everyone! Wednesday and Friday I'll show at my fair so I can see what the judges think of her! Even my mentor who raised her thought she looked awesome. :)
