    I got Pistachio yesterday evening and brought him home 4 hours before Urbi kidded! So we went from 2 goats to FIVE goats in 4 hours!! Hahaha

    This is Stachie:

    He's got awesome genetics, he's 7 weeks old (so I'm bottle feeding twice a day for the next week). I'm super excited for the future kids he'll produce :D

    He is from Ironwood Ranch in Tucson, AZ. They have two doelings still available, and one buckling (whose dam put out 1335 lbs of milk in 2009) also. Here's their site: http://ironwoodranch.weebly.com/for-sale.html

    The whole family is super sweet and helpful! I highly recommend them if you're looking for some great genetics and friendly people.

    Oh yes :D He has a pimped out kennel of pine shavings and fresh alfalfa, and gets two bottle feedings a day :)

    He sleeps in my kitchen. Hehehe.

    AWWWW you got Pistachio! I was thinking about getting him, but we don't even know if we're moving anymore, but we are thinking about getting the other buckling! He's such a cute buckling!
    Therese is sooo nice too!

    Aw :) Yeah, she's a total sweetheart! Very down to earth and super helpful. All their goats are so happy looking :)

    Yeah, the lil white boy is adorable! I would've gotten him too, but I don't think i could rationalize it to the bf haha

    Hope you get him :D
