Well, somebody needs to stop me. I just bought two boer cross does. My boss was going to sell them at an auction because she uses them for herding with her dogs and they were getting too feisty with them and I'd fallen in love with the only two does she had and so I asked how much she'd want for them and she said $75! They're decent does one looks to be crossed with a nubian and I have no clue on the other. The one that looks part nubian is a paint but she's got exceptionally long ears with speckles, the other is marked traditionally but instead of being the red/brown color she's a cinnamon color. These are DEFINITELY the last two I'll be getting (well, excluding the registered nubian doeling that I'm still going to get in the spring.) I'll have to extend my pen to accomodate them and I'll probably have to make another shelter after the quarantine period. The person I board my animals said it was fine as long as I did the pen extension myself and as long as these (and the registered nubian.) are THE last one's. I'll get you guy's some piccies as soon as possible. I think you'll like them. :wink: We are actually looking for our own land right now to put all my animals on so hopefully we'll find some and then I can get a bigger herd! :roll: Well, I hope to anyways. We found two acres for like $2-3000 so hopefully we can look at that. Wish me luck!

Sounds great to me too- the cinnamon coloring happens in fullbloods too- sooooo........
I hope your land deal come through too- that is an unbelievable price.

Thanks! I can't wait to get them home! :) The reason the land is so cheap is because it has an old oil rig on it, but that would be fenced completely around and basically goat proof (if that's possible.). So fullblood boers can be like roaned out instead of just solid? I highly doubt that I'll be able to stop getting them! :roll: It will be a couple of weeks before I can get them, she wants to wait 'til she finds some more wethers to replace them. Anyone know of anyone with some cheap nubian or nubian cross wethers that are kinda wild? (like not well socialized.) She really likes the nubians and wants some pretty bad.

Thanks! I might try and get a couple of pics tomorrow after work. I've had my eye on them since I started working there.

Thanks again! I've got another problem, on Nubian Talk there's a nubian buck kid who supposedly has great lines and he's only fifty dollars. Here's the link. I'd have to find a way to get him here and where I would keep him if I did decide to get him, but first I think I want to see him set up.

edit: The buckling is in Texas.
