Well Rye and Whiskey were 2 months old the ninth, so we weighed them last night when we had time.
Rye is now 40 pounds, 13 ounces. He gained 10 pounds since the 14 of January! He was born at about 9 pounds so in two months he’s gained about 31 pounds, pretty impressive however you look at it.
Whiskey is now 27 pounds, 10 ounces. She hasn’t gained so much recently, since January 14 she has only gained about 6, but she is a doe and Rye is a more aggressive feeder. She was born about 6 pounds so she has gained about 21 pounds in two months, ten less than Rye.
We took some reference pictures again, and even though I didn’t show the first ones, I will now to show how much they’ve grown. The bucket in the back is just a five gallon bucket we’ve put upside down so you can truly see size. Really it is right beside the kid anyhow.
Now that I’ve shown our goats and updated you on that. We went over to our neighbor’s house to see some of their goats, they’d had 18 babies born. And figuring I’ve talked about boer goats I thought I might show some. I got a picture of a couple of their kids with their dam. It’s just cute. And since the computer won’t agree with me it is the above portion with the other pictures.
