    Okay so I went and got those dairy goats ... they're not pretty, let me warn you. I certainly wouldnt want to have been paying for them, but since they were free I'm quite happy to take them and rehome them. I got three - a mature toggy doe, and her 6 mth old twins, a buck and doe, saanen cross. They are quite scrappy and need some feed in them. Very friendly so I'll sell them on as home milkers at some point.

    The yucky bucky - he's a whiffy boy - was NOT happy in this pic

    yeah my first thought when I saw The-Goat-Formerly-Known-As-Stacey was ouch, ugly ugly udder and so so thin. Then when I saw the daughter and son, they seem like quite nice animals, I thought huh, well she certainly breeds okay. The buck is a whole lot better than these pics. Unfortunately he's also decided he's going to jump my fences. So at the moment he has a tyre attached to his horns.

    What are everyone's thoughts on the doeling? I'm considering breeding her to see how the udder comes out ... unless of course someone wants to buy her in the meantime.

    The two kids are bigger than the doe at only 6 months ... she strikes me as a doe that was bred too early, restricted on feed and consequently has never grown out to her full potential. Its just a pity about the udder. The person said she originally paid a lot of money for her ... :shrug:

    Also, I wanted to know if these horns are too big to band? I'd like to try, I've never banded horns before. The doeling in particular seems to have quite soft horns at the base. They are full sized dairy goats at 6 mths old ...

    Aww poor Stacey! *snickers* Sorry couldn't help it. LOL She seems like such a sweetheart. The doeling is GORGEOUS though. The buck isn't too bad himself.

    Sorry Keren, would that even be considered an udder? Lol. Some love and feed and she'll be good as new.
    I can't help but think, maybe this is the Stacey that you'll one day be worried about while she's pregnant.

    the doelings horn could probably still be removed...its my understanding that it'll work on any size.

    the doeling looks long and mature..a little steep but it may just be the pictures. :thumb: why not breed her?
