    We’ve been having unusually gorgeous weather here this November, so I went out yesterday to try to get some nice pictures of my goats. What do you all think?

    Hasi, the queen. She’s an Alpine mix with some Kiko on her mom’s side. Got her as a bottle baby to try to graft her onto my first doe, May, who was acting pretty depressed after her single buckling kid was born dead. That was before we knew much about goats - of course May wanted nothing to do with this foreign baby, so we ended up raising her ourselves. She can be a bit of a jerk sometimes, but she’s usually very affectionate and she milks almost a gallon a day.

    The twins, Suki and Mika. May’s doeling kids from last year’s kidding. I love their long dangling ears! They’re sixth gen Mini Nubians.

    Our buckling, Murphy. A first gen Mini Nubian with great milk lines and the friendliest, gentlest personality. Planning to breed both Suki and Mika to him for spring kids.

    Me trying to get better pictures of Suki and Mika but getting harassed by Murphy wanting attention. Lol. Excuse the weird face! I was rather caught off guard by the kiss.

    Finally got a better picture of Suki’s pretty floppy-eared face. :)

    Thanks everyone! I’m really trying to learn as much as I can so I can give them the best care possible. This forum has been immeasurably helpful!!

    And yes, the weather has been so beautiful this November. It’s been a strange fall - October acted more like a mixture of August and December, and now we’re getting the nice October weather a month late. :)

    I think the goats are enjoying it even more than I am!
