    with a single buck!!

    well make that a HUGE single buck! he weighed 10 and 1/4pounds at birth so he's huge!.. and.. IMO.. ugly compared to murray as a baby. he's got a dark mahogany brown head with black eyebrows. but both parents had light tan heads.. i dunno.

    Of course she decided to kid when i was coming home from disneyland. the sister in law of my best friend found the baby and proceeded to call me.. she got home an hour earlier than we did. so by the time i got there he was all dry and clean and mom had passed everything and such


    but .. megan thinks he's adorable, since more than likely he's he fall market wether.
    and i know this isn't the best pic, but its all i could get today before it started to rain again


    oh.. and side notes.. my tan doe Maneater kindled today with 5 kits.. a first for me since i've never had a tan litter that big before.( i added a picture of them at like..15 hours old)

    and memphis.. will not breed at all.. we've tried everything, and she's not a hermie.. she's been at the breeders for months and nothing.., so shes kindly replacing memphis with an older red doe that is proven.. and she'll be bred when i pick her and our new lamancha up

    Congrats! :thumb:

    That is exactly why I couldn't raise meat goats! They're just too stinking cute to send off to the butcher.

    AMEN. I would never butcher one.

    I have to say that that baby is a doll. I don;t understand why you do not like him. He is so cute. Send him to me I will take him, and he would be a pet forever.

    Congrats on the surprises! That Boer is a cute little chunk! Hmmmm....the kits, well lets just say that they're cuter with fur.

    Odd how tame bunnies have rodent like babies and cottontails have babies that look like bunnies from the start. I'm sure these 5 little babies will be just cuddly adorable in a very short time.
