    Well - some of you know by reading Sunset Lake Ranch updates - that we have decided to get a couple Boer - Boer crosses to breed for meat for my family.

    Well I took the plunge and bought 2 girls today. The mother is 4 years in March and is 50/50 boer/saanen. The yearling is 75/25 with the higher boer ratio. I am so excited about getting them and I got an AWESOME price on the two from a lady that I offered to let her pasture her animals at my house till she found a place that they could have them.

    Anyway - I will be bringing them up on Tuesday!

    Here is a pic of them for you!!! Unfortuantely the horse does not come with them!

    They are cute girls- the one looking out of the picture looks a lot like a light version of my girl Dottie.

    The girl eating is the mamma and the yearling is the one looking at the camera. I am so excited to get the girls, and they will be coming to the house on Tuesday.

    I am looking at a full boer for a buck from a lady that breeds boers that I have known since I got into goats back in August.

    I will post a pic of the buck as soon as we decide on which one we want :)
