    Well, as a new member I was asked if I had any pictures of my goats - and yes, I do =] Although some aren't the greatest, but they're ok.
    I uploaded the image AND a link incase one of the other doesn't work.

    So here they are:

    Jenna (It's Finnish, pronounced Yenna) 1/2 Nubian, 1/2 Alpine

    Libby. She looks chunky in this pictures, but shes really not - although she has a belly coming on. We were told shes Pure Nubian, but I'm begining to wonder... Lighting is shadowy in this one, she does have some frosted spots though.

    This is Amos Moses. No, my real name isn't Amos, I just used it for registration because its our bucks name.
    He is 1/2 Nubian, 1/2 Alpine.

    This here is Lolli Pop, shes a Pure Nubian, we bought her at an auction, and saved her from going to the slaughter, she was extremely skinny, and in milk, but we've fattened her up some :wink:

    This is Ernie, his sire is Amos, and his dam is Jenna, he was born on June 23rd. We'll use him as a buck to breed Lolli Pop. He stole the tarp from off the hay bales. lol.

    This is Micket, Micky for short, I won him as a whether with his sister, in a 4-h goat give-away contest, one of my first goats. Hes PB Nubian.

    And lastly is Annastasia, Annie for short, she is the dam of Jenna. I won her with Micky in the same contest. She was a great milker. She died of pregnancy toxomia in her second breeding, Amos had gotten in with her in September - accidental -well, he didn't think it was an accident, and the week she was due it was in the negatives, horrible weather, we had the vet out earlier that day, because she was acting really wierd and he gave her a drench but said there was nothing else we could do. She was about 2 days away from her due date, when I found her she was cold, but we cut her open to see if we could save the babies but it was too late.. she had triplets, one girl, 2 boys. R.I.P. Annie.

    Glad you's like it ! If you REALLY want to put it on a shirt ... I could cut out around her face or something, to make it look better for on a shirt. Instead of in the frame. Let me know if you want something done up differently :)
