    Needless to say, though you can't tell by the un co-operative pics, I was very pleased with his overall codition, he still has that "juvenile" look to him at 18 months old, and though he was just gold and white as a kid, he has grown to get the dark dorsal stripe as well as a dark spot on his one foot, the pics don't show it but those blue eyes look really nice with his color. So hopefully she settled after his repeated "romancing" today! If so day 145 will be March 13....giving me 2 does due with in the SAME week as Angel would be due the 10th!

    I've had the "3" in the same week this past winter! Hoping March weather is warmer than the mid February weather here when I had 7 kids born in the same week...4 with just a day between!! Maverick is owned by Binky' breeder, she bought him out of Ohio to add new blood to her herd and I figured why not? I am debating on wether I should retain a doe, if she has one to have my own "born here registered doe"....don't want my numbers too high and cause more harm than good.....o well I don't count my chickens before they hatch...I'm superstitious with that kind of stuff. I was so excited that she stood for him today that I wasn't thinking about getting a breeding memo....good thing Gin at Hollow Ache R was thinking...I got it and now I just have to wait and see....she did deliver in January with twin does at day 145....how much you wanna bet that she makes me wait til 150 next year? :wink:

    Yes, they do have some nice goaties Liz but we sold out of the Nigerians that is how they got the last 2 of our Nigerian bucks.

    Liz,

    Actually, he was partial to his size goats though but we did have one Nubian doe that got mad when he escaped through a hole into the aisle way of the barn though but we found out she was already bred though, she was supposed to be an "open doe" when we bought her though but his half brother Aslan gave use Nigerians and Mini-Nubians though.
