    I know I know I shouldnt be looking at more goats :oops: not with the way our season is going and you guys know I've been struggling ...


    But a lady I know reasonably well rang me today and asked if I was interested in her dairy does ... she knew I had goats and had mentioned wanting some dairies way way back to her. And she is now wanting to move these ones on because she's got a cow in milk and although she loves the goats she's not getting to milking them and its a bit of a shame really to have them just raising their kids.

    Now I'm not 100% sure but I think there was: two toggy does, and their two saanen x toggy kids, one buck kid and one doe kid. And the amazing thing is, she would like to just GIVE them to me!

    She's local, it will take me like 5 mins to drive over there. I'm going tomorrow to have a looksie, I'm not 100% sure on anything at the moment, but I'd like to have a look, considering that I'm unhappy with the dairy does I have now ... I have no idea whether these girls are reg'd, or stud quality, or just plain old scrubby does but I'm interested ... I figure I cant go wrong if they are for free :)

    I'll let you know how it goes, and maybe take pics!

    ETA: Just a couple cute pics I nabbed off their website: http://www.hanericka.com.au/index.htm

    yeah I love that video ... and the pic of the buck cracks me up too.

    Lol yesterday I was a bit up and down about it all, this morning I found myself getting a quarrantine yard ready with straw and hay, and checking to make sure I had enough de-wormer, de-louser and vaccine :ROFL:

    I dont know it just was on my screen when I turned it on and I guess I assumed it was current and didn't look at the date. That is weird that my screen pulled up to it. I wondered at the time how it got there?? Lol I don't know guess I have gremlins.
