That I will be picking up on sunday. Their registered names are:
Caprine Springs Sage (This is the 75% one)
Springs A LA Hold'em (Fully registered American Alpine)
They are bred to kid 1st week of march. The lady selling them to me has the breeding memo thing, will do a bill of sale, and all necessary updated paperwork. She said I will have to tattoo them (Help!) Hooves trimmed last week. Both CAE and CL free. Udder pics to come too.
googled Sage's name (first doe pictured.) Found pics of some of her previous kids. http://acresofacornsalpines.blogspot.../for-sale.html
These are the udder pics. I'm not sure what stage in lactation they are yet, but I've asked. The does were just dried off to get ready for kidding.
Are you allowed to pick favorites out of your own goats? Cause I think the second one is prettier too. The udder picture is from a week ago. They were dried off a month ago. They are both due the same week, so this should get real interesting. When it gets around that time I might need some serious help, even though they haven't had any kidding troubles in the past. I guess the second one (Demi) is super shy and will not let you have more than 2 people in the area while she kids. (She will stop pushing until people leave.)
so i talked to the people and they agreed to deliver the does tomorrow for gas money. dh's sentiments are, "ha ha, i get to play with the new goats before you!" what do i do if onyx, my moody, pregnant, hormonal queen bee, with horns, starts beating the snot out of these galsqn
They are both beautiful. Congratulations! How awesome you are able to have them delivered tomorrow.
As for your last question, keep in mind I am fairly new to goats, but I would not tolerate a goat "beating the snot" out of another goat. Especially a goat with horns being aggressive towards a goat that has no horns. I'd be prepared to separate them, just in case. Better safe than sorry!
sage and demi are here and all is well. onyx knocks them out of the way if they are in between her and a back scratchin, or a blade of hay she wants, but aside from that they are good. turns out sage has waddles. and up till now they have eaten nothing but the best timothy hay. (the people gave us half a bale to transition them to our crappy hay...) also they warned us that sage produces over a gallon per day and needs some sort of soy supplement to keep her condition because she "puts EVERYTHING into her milk"?
