    Last week I went with a friend to Missouri and brought home three new kids, two bucklings and a doeling. Many of the kinder goats in the country are in Missouri, and the other place with larger numbers of them is Washington state, although I guess there aren't a lot anywhere. I needed new genes. So here they are!

    Preston is a first generation kinder, I guess that means it is pretty much an unknown how he will turn out. He has good pygmy and nubian genes, though, and I like increasing the gene pool in the kinder herd.

    Rolley is a third generation kinder, so I'll have some fourth generation kids next year for the first time. He has that lovely oberhasli color.

    This last picture is a mob of my kids, not quite all of them. The new doeling is the pale colored one toward the back. She's the biggest. She is a third generation kinder also.

    It was a great trip, we got to see some friends that moved from here on the way, and it is always neat to meet the goat people you have been talking to on the computer for years.

    Plus I rarely get away because I take care of my mother. I finally had to move her into an assisted living facility, so things are getting a little easier around here, but she isn't really settled yet.

    Thank you, I'm not very good at seeing past coat color yet, so I have both trips let them choose for me, the people I have gotten my kinders from in Missouri are very careful about the kids they sell. These kids look really nice to me, but I don't know enough.

    Thank you very much. I've been pretty lucky, since I didn't know what I was looking at when I started.
