    I was browsing Craigslist like I always do and came across an add for Reg Mytonics..... I opened it up and look what I saw!!!!

    It's Joe Dirt's LONG LOST BROTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    So anyway, come to find out the lady that owns/is selling the mytonics is the lady whose house I am going to to do some services for this afternoon! I am so stoked!

    So then of course, reading the ad, I started inquiring about the ones that she had for sale. She has this doe for sale with Blue Eyes that caught my eye -

    She said we could talk, but she would be willing to trade services - AGHHHHHH :GAAH: :GAAH: Someone stop me!!!!!!!

    You go girl! :ROFL:





    Sorry, this is the wrong place to be asking for someone to stop you. By the way, stop you from what? :ROFL:

    My husband doesn't know :ROFL: :ROFL: :ROFL: :ROFL:

    So I am going to look at everyone today, take pictures, and then decide if I want a mytonic or if I want the cash -

    God grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I can not change (goatie addiction)
    courage to change the things I can; (who would want to)
    and wisdom to know the difference. (there is a difference???)

    Haha, yeah you're definitely in the wrong place if you want people to stop you. :p I know I keep wanting to buy more goats when Ken and I need to wait till after kidding to sell off a good chunk of the does. Bad me has been inquiring about this gorgeous fullblood Boer doe though.

    I'm sure you'll figure things out. That doe is gorgeous though.

    Cute goat. I managed to sneak a yearling Nubian into my herd without hubby realizing I'd gotten another goat. She's out of my friend's $2400 spotlight sale Saada doe and my buck. She's brown like most of my goats, so it was easier to sneak her in. He caught me with the other one I got because she's spotted. She's out of another of my bucks. No more buying goats for me for a while. We'll have plenty more when the girls start to kid. Too bad most of you fellow goat addicts don't live closer. I'll have lots of goaties for sale come kidding time. Good Nubian bloodlines, too.

    Well, I went out to the place and did my work. I looked at the does and although the one in the picture above was just beautiful - something in my gut told me not to do it. She was real skiddish - yet didn't "faint" she had blue eyes, but very light - almost marbled. But the thing that kind of threw me - was the coat almost seemed cashmere..... it was weird.

    The older one that is bred - she was a doll - real social - didn't faint - but would freeze in a corner. She looked alot like the one above - but HUGE! Her back legs didn't seem right either. I guess last kidding she had quads and 2 were still born. She is due March/April - but I just couldn't bring myself to even get my camera to take pictures, so I knew that I wasn't all that interested.

    The buck was hilarious though - I LOVED his hair. He had NO manners what so ever - but really nice looking.

    Awww....that's to bad, I was expecting you'd come home with a few. :ROFL: But that's great that you followed your gut feeling, there's a good reason you felt that way, even if you don't know what it was. Good for you!

    Adult Fainting goats dont fall over, they just stiffen and stand still -- some though will walk even with their stiff legs. So thats why you didnt see her faint.

    Sorry, but I have been reading the postings and I have to interject....so this is an addiction that I have. I am a newbie....have just 3 so far and I have been having this compelling feeling to check out Craigslist.....I WANT MORE! Two is company and three is a crowd. Poor Little Prince doesn't have anyone to cuddle with (I tell myself). :leap: They are so precious! I never thought I could get so hooked. I lie in bed at night though and think about what I'm going to go thru this summer.....trying to keep them out of my flowers. I also love to have pretty flowers. This winter we let the "kids" out to run around the place. They can't really get into too much trouble right now. They are going to be really disappointed when I have to start putting Princess on the long line!
    The funny thing about the whole deal is that I didn't want any goats to begin with. My daughter bought the first one at a horse sale for her step-dad for Father's day and I had a fit the whole time she was bidding! Now we have 3 and I'm NUTSO!

    oh hunny - the addiction has just begun - wait till you start breeding and they kid out - that is when you will be really "screwed" :ROFL: :ROFL: :ROFL:

    I started with 4 - then up to 25 within a year - down to about 15 - now back up to 20 with 15 being does and either pregnant now or soon to be!
