    Nope, supernumerary teats. Kim was very disappointed.

    They have extra teats. In this case, smaller ones right next to the "primary" ones.

    I am learning that some people Don't Really Care...Actually Prefer extra teats...Maybe you should advertise them as having Optional Equipment instead of a deformity...But what would I know or Kim or You...I wonder how many people that read this are running out to look underneath their does...hope they check their bucks as well....Good luck with the "rest of the herd"...

    Congrats on the kids! they look healthy and mom looks content.

    Boers were bred to have "Extra" teats, to feed multiple kids..it's NOT that we "Don't Really Care".. because that is plain wrong, I want to continue what has been working with the Boer breed for years, and breed the Boers as they were supposed to be... older styled, 2x2 teats, dark pigment. The only reason i'd see to have 1x1 teats is milking! I don't know anybody who milks their boers because their lactation period is not 305 days at 1-2 gallons...

    so that does not necessarily mean that you need to sell these doe kids. unless your hell bent against 2x2 or want to milk them.

    Re: Cleo Kidded!

    depends on the extra teats 1. if they have a teat canal 2. are they connected to the other teats? @ ()relics: I raise both dairy and meat goats, i bottle my dairy kids, I want my meat girls to have enough teats that if they have trips/ quads, I don;t have to bottle, them.
    @jodief : each breeder has to decide what works for them. No matter what they are still cute kids! :stars:

    Re: Cleo Kidded!

    I agree that extra teats are fine *if* they are seperated and functional. These are too small and too close to the primary ones. Probably will not be functional either.

    Kim prefers 2 teated becasue she raises primarily milk goats, bottle feeds the babies and does milk all of hers, even the boers.

    I think relics has had a lot of experience with people selling multi teated does that have poor overall teat structure. I know I have.

    Thank you for all the kind words, we think they are adorable and will make someone a nice 4-H goat.

    ()relics...We as Boer breeders... do care.. :wink: we want 1x1 or 2x2 "clean".....well spaced.... functionable teats... depending on the Doe ...if she throws the twins or trips....it is what we want in a Doe's teat structure......it wouldn't make since... to have a Doe.... that always gives trips ...to have trips fight over 1x1 teats.... we want that Doe... to be able to feed those kids... without having to supplement ...in which... does happen if ...the Doe isn't equipped properly... to support her own kids... it is only logic's ...we aren't asking for... deformities at all.... I see... it does bother you...about this issue and I am sorry for that... :( but..... we can't keep disagreeing on the same issue repeatedly....we know how each feels on this subject....Believe me....We boer breeders ...do respect other breeders and realize that...there are some breeders ....that prefer the 1x1 clean....only... so hopefully ...we can leave it at that..... and... to each his own.. :wink: :hug:

    I agree whole heartily...Katrina... :thumb:
