    lol I know I am addicted to buying goats.

    [​IMG]

    The only photo I have at the moment, waiting on more. Might possibly be buying the red collared doe, with or without a doe kid. Just waiting to get more photos, and hear back from the breeder as another guy wants them as well, he might possibly take one doe and one kid, or one doe and both kids, either way would suit me.

    Hee hee hee I love goats :love:

    I have actually sold 16 goats and two sheep, so far I have replaced them with 1 dairy doe and I'm hoping to get two or three more.

    But if we take a philosophical view of things ...

    A goat keeper can never have too many goats (particularly when looking at baby kids) but also a goatkeeper always has too many goats (particularly when looking at the feedbill or trying to contain the latest hurdler).

    It might just be me... but the doe with the red collar looks like her udder is very loose - like that it doesnt have the greatest attachments?

    I really like Heidi. Like the looks of Annie but need more pics. I dont like mona's teats at all but she comes as a freebie with Heidi. The crossbred buck kid in the photo with Annie comes as a freebie with her, he will go straight into the freezer (but I wont be telling his current owner that!)

    ooh yeah, yum! If you eat them at a young age <1 yr they taste pretty similar to lamb or beef. I personally prefer a stronger flavour (I like gamey meats, and prefer hogget/mutton over lamb due to the extra flavour) so when I have a private kill, I wait till 15 - 18 mths. They have a stronger, slightly gamey taste (not 'goatey' or bucky though!) and you get more meat, too. The texture is like beef.

    I will try to remember to bring some to canberra show for you

    I really dont like that one with the huge teats. It will be extremely difficult to milk her like that... I guess udder conformation is v important to me even with dairy does. Especially as after a few years milking their udders will get worse - so you want one that starts out good! :greengrin:
