So, from reading alot of posts here, I have figured out that goats are an addicting creature! :lovey: I would love to know how you all got started in your goat adventure. Me....I have a friend who had three does who kidded last month. She is a very busy lady and wants to cut down her herd. She has a very good milker that she is keeping. So far there has been some bad luck with the kids she has given away (two died and 1 came back because the doe was killed by owners dog). She is going to give me a doe and her buckling and maybe another buckling or doeling. These are Sanaans. My doe is out of her good milk goat who was bred to a registered Sanaan buck out of good lines. She (my doe) was then bred last year back to her sire and had one buckling this year. As a FF she had an easy birth and is taking very good care of her kid. He was whethered two weeks ago and will be dinerr for hubby and me come fall.If I get the other whether, he will also go into the freezer. Now, I am exicted to get her home...will make sure pen is up and safe before then. I do want some milk, but would prefer her to have more of a meat type kid next year. So, I am looking around for either a Boer or Kiko buck to breed her to. Not much luck so far I can breed her back to her sire or a Chasmere, but again, I would like more meat. It looks like I may have go buy a young buck. Still thinking about that one! Those that have bucks...any and all info is appreciated. I know he will have to live seperate from the does, have a friend whether, may smell up the place, etc. So.....how did you get involved with your goaty family?
