I took lots of photos of the baby goats this morning and even snuck in a couple of our fat baby sheep, Lambikins. Cami seems to think we should name the lamb “Gretel”. Trevor thinks she needs a real name. But “Lambikins” is kind of growing on me.
As for the goat kids, I think we will be selling everyone except for one buckling. There aren’t too many people around here that are willing to stud out Nigerian Dwarf bucks (or perhaps there simply are not many). Most people in this county have Boer meat-breed goats, not dairy goats. The down side of needing to breed Nigerians is that they are so small. You can’t just breed them to anyone– you need a buck that is the same size breed or smaller.
So I will plan to keep back a buckling to breed to everyone, even Heidrun… for Mini-Toggs? Dwarf Toggs? Toggendwarfs?
