For those who don’t already know, we’re selling off all of our goats. I’m posting their pics & descriptions here so that I can just point interested parties here. I will cut deals for folks who buy several!
(I thought it would be a good idea to put each on a leash and lead them into the yard so I could get good solo pics of each. But, duh, the goats went nutso for the weeds so most of the following pics are munching-in-action shots.)
This is ShowTime. She is a full, registered Kinder doe, born March 16, 2012. We bred her last fall and she easily kidded this spring to a single doeling. Unfortunately, her doeling had a birth defect and died within a few hours. She is trained to the milkstand and has a very sweet personality. She was disbudded before we purchased her but she has two little blunt nubs. $200
This is Gidget, a full registered Kinder doe, born April 23, 2012. Last fall, we decided to let her mature a bit more so she has not yet been bred. She takes a little while to warm up to you but she is very tame & nice. She was disbudded before we purchased her and has one little blunt nub. $200
This is Susie, a full but unregistered Kinder doe, of unknown age but probably 4-5 years old. She threw quads this spring and is a fantastic mom. Her teats are uneven but she milks out very easily. She’s trained to the milkstand and has a quirky personality. She is shown with her two remaining bucklings, Snowman and Brownzai, both full Kinders, born May 8th, 2013, father was a full registered Kinder. Susie and her bucklings are all disbudded. Susie – $75; bucklings – $50 each.
This is Maisy, a full but unregistered Kinder doe, daughter of Susie, born December 2010. She had twins this spring (her second freshening) and is a great mom. She is trained to the milkstand. Shown with her are her buckling and doeling, born June 1, 2012, father was a full registered Kinder. None of the three are disbudded. Maisy – $75; doeling – $50; buckling – $25.
This is Missy, a full but unregistered Kinder doe, daughter of Susie, born in December 2011. She kidded for the first time this summer to twins and is a good mom. She is not yet trained to the milkstand but should prove to be easy. (She did not kid until July and, due to life, I just never started milking her.) Shown also is her remaining doeling, born July 9, 2013, father a full registered Kinder. Neither are disbudded. Missy – $75; doeling – $50.
This is Cotton, a full but unregistered Saanen, of unknown age. She had twin doelings this winter and is a wonderful mother. She is trained to the milkstand and is a treat to milk. This girl is the sweetest goat I have ever known! $125
This is Plunge, a half Saanen and half Alpine doeling, born January 26, 2013 to Cotton. $75
This is Polar, twin to Plunge above, half Saanen and half Alpine, doeling born January 26, 2013 to Cotton. This girl had a bad habit of rubbing her face on every stupid thing she could find when she was younger. I’ve shown her with her face turned to us so that you can see she has a few bald spots on her face from it. Thankfully, she’s over her crazy face rubbing habit now. $50
And last but not least, Patrick, a full registered Kinder wether, born March 17, 2013. As you can tell from his coloring in the photo, he is in need of copper. Until very recently, he was kept in a different pen from the rest to keep a buck company, so he didn’t get bolused when we did the rest. $25
We also have a hay feeder and a milkstand for sale. $75 each. My husband built these and they are very sturdy! Forgot to take pics so will add them in later.
