Here is the family on the river bank and almost in the river :) Heart attack material when they are so close to my river! But none have drowned! They obviously have more sense. One also walked out on a log which was IN the river - I did not get a photo as I was too busy preparing to catch her :( But she was fine :)

I actually take the worst photos ever, but if I stand on the river bank and just snap they usually somehow come out okay - probably because the goats don't move so much. Although I did slip and camera went flying the other day - now I have to click it about 5 times for it to work!

And here are some more pics I took today. The kids have grown (and decreased in numbers due to rehoming) so here is the two doe kids and their mum and their older sister!!! and one of my fubian (feral nubian cross)

Cute! I just got my first Nubian in Sunday. I'm debating if I should get another from the same farm on Friday, haven't decided yet... They are so darn cute with those long ears:)

No predators in river. We are very lucky in NZ - most we have to worry about is someone's dog coming on the property!!! a few fish in the river and maybe an eel but it is tidal - swim in it often and never meet the fish / eel :)

Hi Janeen - my doe was small at nine months too (lots smaller than her brothers!) and to make matters worse she got preggas early BUT she has had a major growth spurt at about 12 months and while and after kidding! So funny as they just don't seem to have steady growth - just major spurts!

That's good to hear. I'm pretty sure she is bred now... The breeder said to go ahead. So, here's hoping for some growth spurts:)
