Here is the only good pic I have got of them so far. Meet Patches who is 12, and her daughter Belle who is 5 Patches' ears are small cuz when she was a baby, the tips got froze off. Isn't that awful? But so cool that she survived it and is still alive and kicking!? (literally kicking, too, but I will get to that! haha) I have some questions, and they are stupid, so forgive me! First, I thought only Billy goats had beards! These girls both do! Is that normal? haha They also have wattles. Is that good? Also, do you all still think they look like Alpines? Do they look healthy? They seem healthy, although the long, long trip up here may not have done them any good. I noticed Patches' nose is a little runny like this morning... They are not too friendly (and by "not too friendly" I mean MEAN! haha), but I am hoping we can win them over. Another question I have is, how long should I wait to put them in the same field/pen with other goats? Hope, as you know, should be preggers, and I don't want them to hurt her, or my other two babies (Bella and her sister Alice)... So I don't know if we will have to keep them separate a long time, or if goats can sort things out without killing each other, or what?! Pardon my ignorance, and I would appreciate answers to any of these questions and your thoughts on how my new girlies look, healthwise!
