    Well, I brought home the little Boer buckling. He was a bit pricey, especially for a 2 day old ophan but when I saw him, I had to have him. He has great potential to be a superior herd sire. I just have to keep him alive!! He is almost solid red and is a registered fullblood buckling. I really like the solid color and paint boers. They are so pretty to look at!! I may end up showing him...who knows. He ought to be pretty tame by the time I get done with him since I'm bottle feeding and such. Anyway, I'm going to go feed him and take a picture of him. I want you all to see how handsome he is!! I need prayers to keep him alive now!! I've never bottle fed a baby anything.

    Ohhhh I want pictures! I love the solid red and black boers. I am on the hunt for a red or black myself. I wanna see him, and live vicariously through you. :bouncy:

    How is he doing? Have you given him Nutra Drench? Why are you having to try to keep him alive? Was something wrong with him? We would love pictures. I am sending prayers your way. God bless you for saving him.
