I (Nathan) bought a goat today.
She’s a 3/4 alpine 1/4 nubian nanny, 1.5 years old, and had twins at her first kidding.
She’s still putting out about a quart of milk per day, but the guy I bought her from is pretty sure she has been bred again already.
So we could have anywhere from 1 to 4 goat kids somewhere around November.
I have to prepare a pen for her, and Taylor’s out of town with the truck, so I didn’t bring her home today (but bought her to secure the fantastic craigslist deal…$75!). I’ll be going to pick her up on Tuesday.
Pictures to follow.
Let the name suggestions begin.
