    well, they're not tiny babies, but they're about 3 months old. they're my first registered, purebred, full-sized goats and I already love them. The doe is the reddish one and the buck is the black one. I went only planning on taking the doe home, but I just had to have the buck when I saw him. He makes my heart flutter :love: I just applied for membership to ADGA so I can send their papers in. The doe was named already, her name is Miss Arkansas and I named the buck on the spot, his name is Artemis. I'm hoping they turn on nice enough to show. EXPERTS: let me know what you think of them and be honest, i'm VERY new to goats and want to learn as much as possible.

    both were from triplet kiddings and both have spotted family trees to great grandparents

    love the boy's roman nose!

    They look to have nice straight legs - but they are to scared to be showing themselves off properly right now

    you might want to try setting them up when theyre settled in. that way we could get a better idea of conformation. :thumb:

    Aww so sweet, and beautiful! Does it matter that she has a cleft in one ear? I don't know much about showing livestock, so that's why I'm asking.
