Show & New Goat

I just got home from a three day goat show.  My goats did alright. Gypsy (Wild Gypsum Rose) did the best of the group.  She got first in one of her classes and then second in her other class.  The others ranged mainly mid-class. 

On the good side, I’ve bought my last Nigerian Dwarf doe!  Caramel Candy, from Dills a Little Goat Herd in Oklahoma. My sister has deemed her “Bugsy” or “Bugs” because she chatters at us constantly and has large eyes. She’s a nice little dairy type doe with large chocolate eyes.  She has a medium brown from her elbows back and black from the elbows forward.  I’m looking forward to seeing her in the show ring and seeing her kids. 

I’m hoping anyone reading this has had a nice weekend and I hope to get pictures of Bugs fairly soon.

Sold goats

Well, this week has been great as far as the goats go! I’m preparing for the Land of Oz Dairy goat show this weekend and I’ve got my last doe for this year on line for milking. This week I’ve sold three goat kids! Rothgar, Cord’s kid who was half kiko, was bought as a pet for one of my sister’s friends. Joker, Kenzie’s kid, and Kit, Bunny’s kid were just sold this Saturday and today to a lady who is starting up her dairy herd again. I’ve got two more wethers for sale, and at least one doeling who will be for sale and able to be picked up in September since she’s going to the State Fair.


Long time no see.  Hmm, a lot has happened. We’ve had four more kids born since Atl was born.  One of my Nigerian Dwarfs got bred by the Kiko buck.  Luckily her and her kids were and are healthy and happy.  She had a buckling- Rothgar- and a doeling- Edelweiss.  Rothgar is a very intense blue color with a white spot on his side. His sister Edelweiss is white with rose dusting.  They’re a month old or so now…

I had two others born also, just two weeks ago now, from the little calico- Kenzie- the last Nigerian who was bred.  She had a buckling- Joker- and  a doeling- Gypsum.  Joker is tri-colored and Gypsum is black and white basically.  She is graying over most of her body, with a white star on her forehead a white spot on her side, and what my mom calls “spats” on her feet.  They both have blue eyes too!

My grandma is out of the hospital now and doing great.  After a heart attack then a stroke, she finally got out of rehab just this week. 🙂
