    Thank you Stacey!!! I am happy to have these wonderful girls!! I am not getting out of the Myotonics as I have already been asked, I thined out my bucks to get some more does. I waasn't really looking into getting a Kiko but she was gorgeous doe and I couldn't pass her up. I have been wanting some Boers and I was offered my pick of 7 does and these are the 2 I chose.

    The marking on Shadow's back leg is just like Tegan's, who is a kiko. Cool! Nice girls.

    nice, very nice. now you will have to change your name description!!

    ok, here it comes, the stupid question of the day......i don't undertand the '% boer' designation on many goats. boers seem to be the only breed that does this; is it simply short for the fact that some of the genetics are boers? as, '50%', if you had wanted to write all of that?

    % just means they aren't fullblooded. I am not sure of her percent but both boers are percentage boers.

    ok. any reason why this is just with boers that the term is used?

    I am not sure why. But, any kid that I have that aren't fullblood, I call them percentages. I don't know why or if it is just the Boers, I think Kikos do it too.

    it is a meat breed thing.

    with dairy goats they are called grade goats or experimentals.

    Thanks for clearing that up Stacey. I am still new to goats so I didn't know if it was just Boers and Kikos or all breeds.
