    I'm fixing some fencing tomorrow and then I get to move my goats to a bigger area on Wednesday! They'll have access to fresh green and a nice big barn too. We're actually moving them to the same place that I keep my horse at but they will be kept seperated from all of the horses. Everyone will be so much happier! I'll get pictures of the place tomorrow so you can see. They will also have another area that we will fence in so that we can rotate them. Plus I get two more sheep! And I have PLENTY of room for a couple new goats as well. :greengrin: (he actually said I can have as many as I want, but I'll try VERY hard to limit myself. :wink: ) So I'm really excited, this should be the last time I move them until I get my own land! :clap:

    Yep Nubians. Although I'd love to get Nigie's too, but I'd be too afraid Orion (or any other Nubian buck I get) would get to any nigi does I had. I might get me a Nigi or Pygmy wether though. :wink:

    well thats great Crissa

    only question I have: is this the same place that the water was shut off at? because i would hate for you to need to move them suddenly again because of water issues
     
  11. Great news! :thumbup: :clap:

    Yes it is the same place but the water was never shut off. There is a very confusing way that you have to turn it on. It's well water. He showed me how to do it the other day. I felt quite dumb thinking he had turned the water off. :doh:

    Thank you both! I didn't even ask him if I could move the goats there, he heard that I needed a new place to put them from my dad (and my dad didn't ask either he just said it in passing, probably griping about me or something) and he came to me and announced that the goats were staying at his place. I was like :shocked: because he doesn't like goats, he loves my lamb though. Go figure. :roll:

    Well we got everyone successfully moved today! They were soooo happy! (well except for the new sheep, they were too busy glaring at me) :roll: Jumping around and playing, and of course eating the GREEN! lol Didn't get any pictures because it rained for a little while, too afraid to risk the camera. :wink: Chance said that he hated goats, but guess what? He's gonna get himself a doe to breed to Orion! Just a little grade doe, but hey I won't be picky! :greengrin:

    Aww! Congratulations Crissa! Yay! Lucky you! Hubby told me I could only have a few goats, and I have decided to just focus on Alpines. I wish I had a place I could have as many goats as I want! I hope I can move one day. If I could find someone to keep some of my does for me so I could keep more of them, that would be great too.

    Thanks Dreamchaser. :hug: I hope someday you get a great place to live with plenty of land so that you can have more to love on. I'm quite lucky.

    Here's some pictures of the area that they will be kept in after we finish that fencing, right now they are in his actual yard. hehe
