    Ok, so as most of you know I am going down to SC to pick up some goats from Ashley. Also dropping three off in PA. My friend is going to be taking care of my animals when I am gone. She has my cell phone number and the Vets number. I was wondering if I could give her any of your numbers in case she can't get a hold of me and something happens. She had two goats a couple years ago until she had to get rid of them and she was a vet tec for a while. So she knows something about animals lol. But I know you lose your head when something goes wrong. So it would be great if I could give her an extra number or two.

    I am getting excited! Got the oil changed in the car the other day and I got some straw to fill the crates with. Now I just need to get everything else ready and packed!

    Re: Road Trip!

    I'm getting the 'unnamed' buckling--soon to be named Adam, because he's my first 'man' and Sunshine/Sunny. I've never had registered goats before and am really excited. My girls are all 100% nigie and, I think, look good conformity wise. Liz says they look good, so I'm taking her at her word. Next summer, when they all don't look so 'fluffy' I'll post them and ask you all to tear them down so I can improve what I have. I had 2 bucklings, that I wethered, that went to 4H people and they took 1st and 2nd in their class at the fair. I was so-o-o proud.

    Everyone's dewormed and ready to go. I know you guys are excited! Its always so much fun getting a new goat!!!

    I do think these boys will make you proud. All 3 are great genetics and all 3 are very nice with confirmation. I think Adam could easily be a show buck too. Cruiser and Lark definitely are since they're grown. Please send pictures as they grow too!

    SunShine and Adam are about the same size. Him being a single and her being from twins and out of a ff. She's a basketball with legs right now. So fuzzy!!! I get so tickled with the kids going into their first winter. :p

    Its been very cold here at night but everyone is doing great. See you soon!!!

    Re: Road Trip!

    How is Adam's & Sunny's neck length? Just one of the things I would like to improve on. When you say 'cold', do you mean COLD--we've had a frost last 5 days. I'm glad that they have their 'winter coats' on. This is going to be to ONLY good day next week. Tues, DH has to be 1 1/2 hrs from to get scars removed from his cataract surgery (be there by 7 AM :ZZZ: )
    Wed. he has to be at hospital (only 1/2 hr from home) to undergo surgery for bladder cancer. They plan to keep him "at least overnight", so the rest of the week I'll be playing nurse more than usual :sigh: Do you think Adam should be separated from Sunny and my little Madam?

    Re: Road Trip!

    Candy...Ashleys page is set up so nice that it's super easy to check out those babies pedigree's...I love Adams dam...Civil has a beautiful udder as well as a very dairy neck...as does his sire, so I don't think you'll have a problem there! RunAround...you have a safe trip...and Candy...great big hugs and lots of prayers for you and hubby....Adam is just over 2 months old...he MAY or may not be able to do some damage with your little girls....it's up to you to watch him and be willing to separate if he's being a little buck. :hug: :pray:

    :scratch: I think I'll try that new goat contraceptive--you remember--the 'apron' used in Africa :ROFL: Or maybe an apron that hangs from the back of the girls :ROFL:
    Should I take pictures? Maybe I could sell them and make enough to pay for feed :idea:
    ( I really am joking--honest )
