    So Dawn's former owner emailed me yesterday and offered me a free doe. She gave me a list of ones that I could pick and I picked one named Dorcas. Dawn is her Grandmother. I know Dawn didn't have the best attachments, but oh well. It doesn't bother me right now. She is bred to the same sire as Stacey's Angie and my little buck Bambi. She's due in October! So I will have kids way later than I planned this year and hopefully milk through the winter! I was going to wait to make my decision, but she had people coming up to buy and couldn't hold all her does till I made one. lol

    So anyways here is an old picture of her. I will get new ones when I pick her up! I am so excited! Still very sad about Dawn and I even started crying again while talking about her, but I am going to be getting another girl from her to love and spoil rotten.

    Thanks everyone. I am actually getting very excited! I am going to pick her up tomorrow. I know it's kinda soon, but I want her to get settled in before she gives birth. Her owner isn't 100% positive she is bred, but if she isn't then I get a free breeding back to whoever I want! So it doesn't really matter. But I sure hope she is preggo! I would love some October kids!

    I was originally afraid to get another goat right after Dawn. I guess I thought it would be like replacing her. But I talked to my Mom and Stacey and now I feel better about it.

    Lol I thought the same thing. But if you look up the meaning it came from a story in the bible I believe.

    Ashley, that was so nice of Dawns previous owner :hug: Dorcas is a very pretty girl, and it's great that you'll have her grandaughter...are you planning to keep any of Dawn's kids?

    Hope Dorcas does give you babies in a couple months...big hug to you for keeping your chin up :hug:

    I am keeping both of Dawn's does she gave me this year and her little wether. He is such a baby to me. I will sell one of her does once I see how they look when they freshen.

    yes Dorcus is a name from the Bible. I do believe in the new Testament.
