    With my "LaMancha genes" post most of you know I was planning to get 2 little LaMancha X doelings. I did indeed get them and they are just adorable, although they have not been handled. They are 3 months old as of the first of April and a little skittish. These girls are 75% LaMancha and 25% Boer or there abouts. These pictures are not the greatest as I couldn't get real close without spooking them.

    I am pretty happy with them and their funny looks. I hadn't planned on getting the mother but they weren't weaned and they needed her. The Nigerians price was just too good. She was bred last year to the LaMancha buck and delivered twins without any complications. First time I had ever heard of using a full size buck on a smaller goat that wasn't a trainwreck. Now I am looking for a Nigerian buck to breed her with.

    All the goats are very healthy and well taken care of.

    Well Liz is the cause of the trash can in the tree. there are actually 3 of these trash cans out there. They were supposed to be hay feeders to keep the hay off the ground, you can see by the pictures that they didn't work as such. I actually found one of the girls pulling ALL the hay out and eating it off the ground. It was supposed to help with waste. I am presently making a full bale feeder and they better not do the same with it.

    I really love that Nigerian but it will take a bit of work to get her to come around. She hasn't been handled a whole lot and it does show. I'm going to see if apples will help calm her down enough to get her halter off and do some work on her feet. They are atrocious.

    Pretty Girls!

    I think the trash can would have worked if you hadn't cut such a big hole. lol. Maybe two mouth sized holes the next time you try because that is a good idea!

    Or maybe cover the hole with a piece of woven wire fencing or a piece of mesh from a small mesh hay net... like this sort of idea:
