    Fluffy pic of Miffy, my saanen x boer doe kid, bout a week old


    Spot and her buck kid



    The larger doe kid


    The tiny doe kid


    Thats a 600ml coke bottle next to her for size comparison

    Tinkerbelle - alpine x boer doe kid. Absolutely stunning


    A little gremlin kid - the oddest thing I've ever seen. He was everything that could possibly be wrong with a goat, all stuck together in the one package. He came from work. He had a parrot mouth, twisted ear, he was knock kneed and bowlegged, cow hocked and had this huge great big belly with tiny fine boned legs. He was a weirdo. Mum is fullblood, dad should have been fullblood, and both show animals, but I'm wondering if one of the crossbred bucks got to her through the fence. Anyway I had him on the bottle and he was about 2 mths old, and I found him dead this morning. No signs of illness, just up and died. But he was always a bit weird, seemed like maybe one day he might just keel over. He just didnt seem RIGHT if you know what I mean.

    So ugly he was cute

    What a difference with those triplets, wow....adorable kids. And what a little Boer baby....so tiny, but perfect :love:

    LOL..."little" Miffy is a chunk :wink:
    Well...Tink is a sweetie, awwww.

    Sorry you lost the little buckling, but it was likely for the best with all that was wrong....even those unseen by you. :hug:

    sorry to hear of your loss of your "little gremilin kid" he sure was a cutie, I also had a kid last year with parrott mouth, he was bottle fed until about 2 months old then just up an found him gone one morning too.

    nhsmallfarmer, seems like lots of people have had parrot mouths just up and die. I believe weevil had one. My theory is along with the parrot mouth there is some other, unseen deformity, that makes the majority of them not live to adulthood.

    Regardless, he was spoiled rotten and happy for the short life he did have.

    Its funny, I went from Miffy at 5.5kg to Tiny at 1.3kg lol

    Bit of a difference!

    She's doing brilliantly, I have no doubts now, she is going to be fine. All three are looking marvellous.

    Neighbour brought round a lamb almost dead, but he has perked up amazingly and is looking good now as well.

    Yeha Harmony had a triplet sister Melody who had a parrot mouth. She died at 3 weeks of crypto, but it did avoid me having to work out what to do with her when she grew up!

    Those little triplets are so cute Keren - is that a sock you have on the wee baby? hehe
    Im sorry you lost the wee buckling too - but as with Melody, perhaps for the best as when he grew up you would have had to work out what you were going to do with him!

    Yes, its a sock - cut in half! All my rugs were too big for her. Even the tiny dog rugs on the larger two kids are a bit big for them.

    Gremlin would have been going in my freezer when he grew up ...
