    Ok so I have absolutely no idea when belle is due but i know she is bred and our fair is in june...last year she kidded in January and I had trouble getting her kids large enough for the fair...should I go ahead and plan to buy my market weather this year? I have emailed a woman about one out of her winter breedings and was leaning toward Precious/Midnight Rider. What do you think? Which of her breedings would you reserve a weather from and do you know of a farm in Indiana that you would recommend for weathers? Thank you, Sara

    Well I have never personally bought anything from Roll Farms, But I can tell you (this may be a little sad) but I look at her page almost everyday and she is an awesome lady I have e-mailed her with questions and she has always been really helpful. If you look at her home page you can see she has had some winning goats. And as you look at all of her goats they are all healthy and well taken care of. One breeding I would recommend from her would be a wether out of Sassy if she has one, she said she was a really fast grower and so have been all of her kids. With the boer Kiko cross breeding, she said they have grown really well and they are more resistant to parasites. Just a thought.

    Sorry I just looked at her breeding line up and also thought about Nissan she is the PB Kiko.

    I am actually leaning towards Sassy right now but I am still going to look around before I make a final decision...:) I really do agree that she takes great care of her animals and all though!

    He is really cute I actually saw him in person on tuesday. I bought Faith and Ruby, 2 bred dues. While I was there I got to see the babies. They are really nice people and will help you with anything they can, I was really shocked at how informative they were with me. Good luck I hope he grows and does good at the fair. If you win you will have to get a picture with the ribbons and send it to them so you can get 25 dollars off a wether next year.

    On tuesday it was kinda Icy and they live kinda on a hill so when I was turning in I went in the ditch so if its icy becareful. My favorite babies are either dios doe or nissans buck with a little red on his head. I just like ones that are unique. The black ones are cool too. Both does I bought are traditional, One is bred to train and the other is bred to rider, I am just praying one has a kid with black on it. But anything will be nice.

    ok thanks for the warning :) I would say there is a high chance that you will get black out of one of them..

    Now that we will have half sibling goats you will have to let me know how yours does and I will do the same. Even though yours will be a bit older. It will be nice to see how another one grows.

    Re: Market Weather for 2010

    OK sounds good and I will post pictures once mine kid. As to the bottle that weird that he wont eat the whole thing but atleast he is eating. I am guessing its different then what he had there, and that could be why.

    Actually it is the exact same thing its actually milk from her dairy does but he is eating and seems to be doing well so unless he starts seeming sick I'm guessing its just because its so cold..we actually had to bring him in last night he was shivering so bad.

    I know what you mean the does we had before these were in with the buck for 4 months so god only knew when they were due then once the last possible due date passed that is when I realized they never got bred. So they have moved on and now we have these 2 does who should give us better results. It was horrible waiting that long and watching for nothin.

    Hes a cutie!

    I had an almost solid black wether that was 50/50 Boer/Nubian and his sire was out of T4 lines.

    I showed him once before he was too old and he placed 4th out of 9 at the Cullman Alabama Regionals and he was the only black in the class and the judge said he had the best top on a black wether he ever saw. He even beat out a Keri Hyde wether! I was so proud of him! His name was Peppy La Pue and unfortunatley was in our freezer for quite sometime. :(

    I hope your baby will do well at the shows! Get his butt huge! He'll win for sure!
