    Thank you all so much! It is so very appreciated!

    LOL luckily that shine is all them! I love to see it! They'll be losing that glossiness once those fuzzy winter coats come in.

    We always welcome visitors! Our small farm isn't anything crazy special, but we've definitely worked hard with the genetics we've created!

    We have to preg check the girls and see when they're due! We were going to have 8 kidding in January but about half came back into heat this month. I am so sad! We are going to have a crammed barn while it's flooding outside in the spring. We should have 22 total kidding from Jan to May - ALL but 4 are going to be bred (or are bred) to Zhaitan. The other 4 are bred to Zhaitan sons.

    Thank you! She is a dapple! She was actually black when born and lightened to a dark mahogany and black. She had grey and white dapples when she was born, and the grey lightened to a cream. Some people call them "tri-colors" but I don't. Here is her as a baby... she has definitely matured fantastically:

    She is the one in the middle here:

    Omg you make me want one so bad and I only have dairy goats!! lol.. They are all so beautiful I am really partial to that dark dapple coloring.

    Does it take more property to raise Boers as opposed to Lamanchas and Nigerian Dwarfs? Hmmm

    Thank you so much!

    It depends on how you want to raise them. If you want to dry lot them, you don’t need as much space as someone that is raising them off of pasture only.

    We are around 4 acres but I would prob only have an 1/2 acre for Boer goats, if I seriously decided to get some, due to all our other animals. We would probably have to put up another barn too.
    We are planning to move to bigger property but haven't found the right one yet.
