    I went and got both my doe's back from the breeders today,my boer cross is bred to a boer,and my Alpine cross is bred to Hardluck-Hollow Ruff Tyrone,and due 5/05. Opinions on his pedigree/scores are welcome. :wink: I don't really understand what all the scores mean. I've heard of most of the herds in his pedigree,and they're pretty nice,so hopefully she will have a nice little doeling for me. :greengrin: I'm also planning on buying a registered Alpine doeling and a whether from the same lady in spring,so I'm pretty excited.

    Oh that is great! I just sent you an email stating that I will be selling both of my 09 kids, but that is great.

    I looked at his pedigree, it looks pretty good. As far as his LA scores, they are great! He has E's in Head, Shoulder Assembly, Feet, Back, Rump, General Appearance, Dairy Char., and Body Cap. E is for excellent, and is the highest score you can have on LA. He does have a V, very good, on rear legs, and that is just something you should be aware of. I had never even heard of the type evaluation, and besides the posty legs it looks very nice!

    That is great, maybe I will see you at a few. Are you going to the Ohio Dairy Goat Conference? I am sure you are super excited for kids.

    I am in northeastern Ohio,about an hour from Canton,or Steubenville,and hope to go to at least a few shows. Thanks! :) Should I be feeding them differently now? More hay,and less grain,or should I gradually increase grain?

    wait to increase their feed till they are mid pregnancy. Right now there is no growth by the kids so there is no need for extra food.

    day 60-120 are the most crucial time when the kids are developing the most.

    So just keep it the same as what they have been getting for now?

    Yes you should keep feeding them what they have been fed. I am in south eastern Ohio, about 3 hours directly east of Columbus, on the border of West Virginia.
