    Those are the last babies for Ranger this year. Both are little does. This kidding really surprised me. Clover has never needed help kidding. This was a first. I know she is an old girl but I believe she has earned herself some retirement and will be in with the weanling kids from now on. With all that said.. she now grooms me like I am one of her kids LOL. It will likely pass by tomorrow but it was still a hoot. Ironically.. her breath smelled like my Mom LOL which is a bit disturbing .

    @R.Williamson what beauties. They are so sweet. Sje will groom you because you probably still smell like her babies. Congratulations.

    ty!
    hehe I figured. She is still doing it today. I have been with her every time she has kidded. She is my only commercial girl left. She is as much pet as anything else. I know that sounds weird but I have to keep it separate in my head. Pet zone is permanent here. She has been my baby since I first got her. She was at least 7 when I got her 3 yrs ago. My husband asked me why on earth I bought her. To be honest.. there was just something about her I liked. She was skin and bones. I paid 120 and she has been my buddy ever since.

    @R.Williamson those are the special ones. The few you can look at and say you saved them.

    Thank you. Ranger did well. I was hoping for all does. I cannot wait until we get everything straight on the land so we can finally move; I have a feeling the goats will love it there

    Yes, I am selling him. I will not have a buck for now. Everyone who can safely be bred has been bred. I am not a fan of selling him just yet. I had planned to keep him for at least another year or two. I am dealing with some issues with my little sister. Her vehicle is in our name. Apparently it is now $1100 behind. We have put a fat chunk into projects in the last month or so and just cannot foot it. Needless to say that vehicle is coming to my house. The payoff on it is only $1800 so just going to pay it off. For the record.. the majority on this vehicle has been paid by us. I like my non blood family soo much more than blood relatives most days.

    I hope that did not come off snarky. It was not meant that way. I am just fuming still and trying to hold my temper.
