Well, some of you might of heard that I have been contimplating getting out of goats, except for my personal pets. It has been a long, trying year for me. I have had heartbreaks, upsetting times and what not. Well obviously someone or "something" was looking out for me. I received a phonecall a few months back from a breeder a few hours away from me that had a proposition of me leasing her herd, as they were moving. Things kind of died down - and we didn't talk about it for a while. Then last week I received an email from her that she had a proposition for me. I called her and she wanted to GIVE me some of her registered Nigerians as she wanted them to go to a good home that she trusted. I was so happy! :stars: . There are 4 does and 2 bucks. All registered and some double registered. So I told hubby that I was going to be given 4 does - he just looked at me. Then I told him about the 2 bucks - he said - "That is NOT 4" So I didn't want to push him a couple days later when there was a young wether thrown in on the package - LOL! I wanted to blood test everyone before I brought anyone home so I was to go up this past Friday and draw on everyone - but had to push it until Saturday. My hubby actually went with me. So we drove the 2 hours to Ms. Carla's house. We got there and the goaties were just B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!! Everyone was so friendly, happy, and healthy looking!!! Ms. Carla and her husband are some of the nicest people that I have ever met in my life. We are so much alike in alot of ways! So we brought out the goats 1 by 1 to draw blood (13 total) and everytime it was one that I am going to be bringing home, I would tell my hubby - this is one we are getting. You could see him kind of light up. He held all of them for me and they were the easiest goats I have ever drawn on! It was great and I was able to stick most of them only 1 time and get the blood quickly. When we went to do the boys (which of course you know they started rutt alreay) my husband lit up. He FELL IN LOVE with one of the bucks we are getting - Mocha (which happens to be Ms. Carla's husband's favorite of all the goats also!) Then we stayed and talked for hours! The "boys" seemed to have lots to talk about - and you know us women can always talk for hours. We were given home made goat milk icecream - OH MY GOSH! It was the best icecream either of us has ever had!! Ms. Carla even sent me home with some goat milk soap to try. It smells so good and leaves my hands so soft! So we left Montana to drive to get our son, and the whole way home MY husband was talking "Goat" to me - can you believe it. It is a revalation - I have officially converted him! I think he has realized that "big guys" can like goats also - :ROFL: So I am sending blood work today - will have the results back by Friday afternoon and we are picking them up. So guess who asked if he could come with me to get them------ my step son!!!!! This is the boy that I usually DO NOT get along with and wants NOTHING to do with my "pets". Can you believe it!!! :shocked: I think it is because my DH was going on and on about these goats. So I am letting him skip a football practice to come with me. I am so excited to get these goaties. I have pictures but I need to download them from the camera. I will post them shortly (tommorrow) for you all as right now I do not have internet at home. But I will tell you about them!!! Chocolate Doe - white band on one leg - marbled blue eyes Light buckskin Doe Gold Doeling Black and white Doe Light Buckskin wether Chocolate and white Buck Black and white Buck (Father to other buck) They colors listed on their registration papers are off on a couple of them - but I will check tattoos when I get them. I am so excited to have "my herd back!!!" pics soon!
