    Aaggh! I just finished typing this whole post and it deleted everything! Oh well, here goes again:\

    I really hope it works out to get these two new goats!! Of course they not friendly. Just about all the goats from this breeder are not friendly. . . oh well, they are a lot cheaper than the other does I was looking at a while back.

    Here they are:

    Sugar Pine CT Ginger Pye
    April 24, 2008
    polled!

    Sire: Tahoma Citation
    SS: Twin Creeks AH In The Spotlight
    SD: Mountain Quest AE Molasses

    Dam: Sugar-Pine LK Gingerbread
    SS: NC PromisedLand HS Lion King
    SD: Sugar-Pine SB Blackstrap (I think this doe is a CH, not positive though)

    Sugar Pine FD Panda Bear
    February 29, 2008

    Sire: Hayseed Farm's FA Flash Dancer
    SS: Hayseed Farm's Final Answer
    SD: Gay-Mor's Lucky Native Dancer

    Dam: Sugar-Pine SL Bear Cat (almost a permanent CH)
    SS: Twin Creeks AH In The Spotlight
    SD: Mountain Quest GA Snow Bear

    What do you think? I really hope it works out to get them!! Oh, Panda Bear is being shown in the ADGA show at Oregon State Fair, hopefully she is a good girl and places well! :)

    Well, I'm getting them!! Yeah! I'm getting ready to put them on my site, hopefully today. :) I'll be picking them up next Tuesday and will get better pics of them. Panda is going to be shown tomorrow and the lady said she is really sweet and are getting more and more tame each day! Yeah! :leap: She said I will be very happy with them. So excited!

    I totally forgot to let you guys know how Panda and Ginger did at the show! Oops! :oops: Anyhow, Panda placed 4th in her class and Ginger placed 3rd. There are a lot of Nigerians at the Oregon State Fair so these classes were very competitive. So, they did good, despite not being on their best behavior in the show ring! :D I'm going to pick them up tomorrow and will get pics posted asap. :)

    Well, they're here!! They are both so pretty!!! They are tiny! Well, compared to my goats, they're tiny. :D The lady was so nice too! I asked all these questions and she explained them so well, asked her about milk testing and she brought out her papers and explained it all to me (didn't get half of it). :? :wink: Milk testing seems like a complicated matter. Anywho, I am excited! Took some pics but have to upload them (hopefully I can). I put them in a big stall in the barn w/ Leona, Lyla, and Claribelle - hopefully they'll get along.

    These aren't the greatest pics but they give you guys an idea. :D What do you think?? They look really pretty to me and they have lots of wonderful dairy character. Panda's teats are SO LONG!! I'm hoping they stay that way. :)

    Here is Ginger Pye:

    I trimmed their hooves and dewormed them today. I was shocked at how bad their hooves were!! Poor babies! Looked as if they hadn't ever been trimmed (or not in a long while). These pics were taken before I trimmed their hooves.

    Congrats on the additions! The smaller pic of them together is precious. Also, it's cute they're exploring around the barrels in the one pic.

    Thanks everyone! We really like them! :D Ginger is taming down a lot more than Panda. Ginger comes up to smell your hand and does not jump and run like Panda does. I'm trying to make slow movements and use a very calm voice with them. We just got some beautiful, very leafy alfalfa and I'm giving them small amounts of that, they chow down on it! Ginger has this little round tummy that I hope slims down as she gets older. :) Any little tips on taming wild goats???

    FOOD!!! Gets the wildest of kids to come around....animal crackers, raisens, a bit of grain....mine really like twizzlers and jelly beans. My newest, Bailey, was scared and very skittish the first week she was with me...all of my goats are the most neglected critters here( not really, beibg sarcastic) and they all fight over who gets me first....well after a lot of one on one time with her and a few pretzels she now fights my pygmy doeling for my lap.....also, get them to come close to you and gently tug at the collar to bring them even closer, then hold them in your lap as long as possible, talking and petting til they relax....Bailey will now lay on my lap and chew her cud....she's been here for 5 weeks. :)
