    :hi:Welcome to our forum! We love new members. How much do you know about owning goats? There's a lot to learn so if you are completely new I would highly recommend reading up on all the points of their care. I know too that sometimes auction babies can have some issues. (Doesn't mean always, but they can). I would get a fecal done if you haven't so you can tell if they are having any parasites to deal with. If there is one thing you have got to stay on top with it is parasites.

    If you ever have any questions don't hesitate to ask. That's what we're here for! Good luck with your new babies. They look adorable! :)

    Welcome to The Goat Spot!!!:wave:
    Those sweet babies look like Nubian goats. Possibly a Nubian mix. They are super cute! (thumbup)
    Feel free to ask as many questions as you need--even if you think they are silly. ;)
    There are no silly questions in goats. Every question is work asking. :happygoat:
    Moers kiko boars and happybleats like this.

    I was thinking alpine nubian maybe..or if they are tiny..maybe a little pygmy crossed with nubian? They sure are cute. Are they boys or girls?

    They are cute.

    I agree, get fecal for worms and cocci just in case.
    Stress can trigger them both.

    Have out free choice loose minerals.
    Tractor supply has wind and rain, do not get the one with fly control though.

    What are you feeding them and are they does, bucks or wethers?

    Cute goats but so is their owner ! Now as for the breed, looks like some Nubian blood crossed with ???? Hey Cotton, as long as you are happy with them, that all that counts, the breed doesn't. And yes there are no stupid question so ask away if you have one or a bunch. There are some good folks on this site with lots of experience with goats. Hope you enjoy your goats and welcome to this site.
