    i'm finally starting to get buyers for the goats! (yay!)

    A nice lady put a deposit on bikini and GH last week and is coming to pick them up on Sat.

    and star is going as meat, (she's looking absolutely terrible!she's getting old (missing teeth and hooves i cant fix :angry: and weaning her kid...) but they wanted her on sunday.

    i'll be down to 10 goats... and 3 of those are market kids for 4-H. so that's 7, and then i'm selling the cashmeres which would make 5, then maybe thor....so that's 4. and thats the lowest i've had it for....well...a few years. :greengrin:

    but then of course Zephyr is due on saturday, and dawn (ND) is due in july. but all of the male kids will be gone.

    on another note, my PB ND dawn has little midget horns, and i wanted to show her, could i band them off safely?


    thanks!!!
