    Yeah I think the spotted one is older too, we're going to check her teeth later to get an estimate. The stickers are from the auction they came through, we forgot to take them off of her, but got them off of the spotted doe. :roll: lol
     
  4. Soooo cute! congrats! :leap: I kinda like flash?

    Pretty goats! I really like the markings on the black one. She looks fairly young too.

    Pretty girls Crissa!

    The black one has very striking markings! Flash, Blaze :?

    The spotty girl does appear to be older....her belly looks very deep, is she possibly preggy?
    Luna, Sunny :?

    Thanks everyone. Sadly Liz, she was pregnant, she got too stressed and had them too early. She had two stillborn bucks. :( I didn't even think she was, I feel terrible.

    Yes, we bought her Friday, she stayed at the auction until Saturday around 1:30 pm, and she kidded last night.

    hey it might not have anything to do with you or the sale ...... proper care when pregnant is important and she may have been lacking in that. :hug:

    They are pretty girls Crissa!

    I am so sorry that the spotted doe losst her babies. That is hard. But at least she and her future kids will get a good home with you and she'll have proper management. :hug:

    Thank you both. I just hope it's not too late for her. She's actually quite a bit worse than she looks in the pictures, there's almost no weight to her at all, I can barely feel just a TINY bit of fat in between her ribs.

    The black one is doing very well though, she's been named MoonLite. :)

    Awww, Crissa I'm sorry she lost her babies. :hug: There was nothing you could have done this soon to have been able to save them.

    Maybe it was a blessing, if her condition is as poor as you say, she never would have been able to care for them without causing more harm to herself. Take this time to give her even more TLC and the extra groceries she'll get will go towards making her healthy enough to be able to give you healthy babies when the time comes. :hug:

    Thanks Liz. If they had survived we would have bottle fed them. I just can't wait until we get her healthy. I did come up with a name for her. Legacy.

    Thank you.

    He bought me ANOTHER goat! This one has a fish teat though, and I'm certain that she's pregnant, I bumped her and I felt a baby. Hopefully she doesn't abort. I don't know what to do about this doe though, I really DON'T like the fish teat, but she's such a cute doe. :sigh: And I don't want to hurt his feelings, as he was trying to buy something for me, I bet he didn't notice the fish teat, I didn't really notice it until I got ahold of her. Advice please?

    if you arent showing her and she doesnt pass on the fish teat then I wouldnt worry about it.

    Keep her till she kids and go from there -- I mean at some point you are going to have to sell goats she just maybe one of them
