    Handsome animals- Are the goats mini"s or are sheep really that much bigger? I have never had a full grown sheep.

    I like the goaties colors and the sheep don't seem to mind them...the experiences I ve had with sheep are minimal except the fairs...and the ones I saw there seemed "snotty" lol

    No the goat's aren't mini's they're nubians the oldest is only 9 months old and the other is 7 months. The older sheep is almost 2 years old and the younger one is almost a year, so technically they're that much bigger, for now. My sheep also almost seem to act like dogs, they're very well behaved (now anyways) and after I got the younger sheep Tempest my older ewe doesn't mind the goats at all. Thanks!

    I'm going to be sending them to be bred sometime this week, yes I'm planning on showing the lambs and selling any of the extra lambs (if I have any extra) I need them born by February or March, somtimes early April lambs are okay. No you're not nosey. Thanks.

    Here's the other pics!
    Ignore me in this pic I wasn't ready for it and I look horrible! :evil:

    yes they are beautiful! such nice animals!!

    They must be slow growers, they look tiny for their age. (but well fed and not in the least bit sickly - so don't get me wrong).

    Thanks!
    Yeah Lyric is a really slow grower, so were her mom and sister, so I'm not too worried about her. Heidi is two months younger than Lyric and is much taller, but also has a smaller mom. But they are healthy as can be, considering Heidi sucker punched me in the gut earlier and I lost my breath for a bit! :x But they love to run around and chase me so I think they're perfectly fine!

    Now my ewes on the other hand OMG! The little one, Molly, wanted the feed bin one time and she tried to jump on me and hit my leg and I wasn't walking without a limp for a while, but she's a sweetheart and loves attention (unless you're trying to put a halter on her)! Tempest, my two year old, is the leader and has actually attacked a dog before! Man, you should have seen the look on that poor dog's face when it saw that coming! :shock: She at least weighs 200 lbs!

    I know exactly what you mean Stacey, I was actually worried about their size until Candace convinced me that it was in Lyric's genes and after everyone convinced me that they looked perfectly healthy and happy!

    well I kind of figured that it was slow growing genes because they look awesome.

    very nice animals, Crissa

    I do wonder though, at American sheep - they seem so much thinner and narrower than sheep over here - our sheep are chunky all over!
