New girls, they will be ready to pick up middle of next month. I'll purchase a buck when they are older and closer to breeding age.

am very happy.. corresponding this morning about an older doe and possible matching an buck with her which of course will have to consider purchasing a wether to pair with the male as a companion since I will be keeping the males separated from the females except to breed.. every doe has a strong history in 3's and 4's for off springs.. Geesh that sounds so lethal for over multiplying quickly... lol just to have some home raised milk and cheese...

I hadn't heard the term "wether" before -- it's a castrated male goat kept as a companion for your breeding male? That's pretty cool.

And these goats are adorable.

yes it's a castrated male.. not keeping them together since they multiply like rabbits. It's best to have castrated male friend to pair them up with for life..

Thanks. I've had it pretty easy with the no breeding with the dogs and the can't breed for never having the opposite sex to the other animals.. This will be my first true test for management ability lol ... :)

How adorable! Good luck with your newest additions.

I raised and showed Nubians when I was younger. Loved them, they were such clowns.

You're braver than me taking on a buck, the musky smell turns my stomach after a while.
