these girls did nothing but get on my nerves all year long. obnoxious bottle babies. they are starting to mature finally and do not think I am mommy. I knew if I toughed it out I would be happy to have them. not quite as sure about the last one. she doesnt' seem to be of the same caliber as the other two, but she is out of a friends buck so I am glad to have the genetic diversity. I have rid myself of both my bucks and plan to use an outside buck for the dairy girls and pick out my best buckling born in the spring to use on the meat goats.

They look nice.  The bottom one looks a little weak in the pasterns -- you might want to make sure she's bred to buck with very strong pasterns if you plan to keep any of her offspring.

You can thank my dental hygienist for my untimely aliveness. So tiny:
