I had 6 does in quarenteen for the last few months. I bought them from a friend and they were healthy but a bit thin. So they were separated from my does, wormed, CDT'd, Bose'd and hoof trimmed and about 25 lbs put on each doe. For the last month they have been able to sniff and touch my other goats through the fence and they visit each other every day at least once.
Well today I put both groups in together and they had quite the sniffing, hackle-raising, head-butting, snorting, etc contest. Such doofs! :rolleyes: :)









By the way, the red Nubian doe is available as a bred doe in the next month or few weeks. I'm just waiting to make sure she took. She is CAE negative, registered Purebred. Bred to Copper-Hill Little Buddy.

Well, today after two days of being out with the main herd, they are finally sticking with them and I don't have to take the sillies to find the water tubs twice a day. :rolleyes:

Call me nuts, but I sure would like to come over and take a closer look at the red doe. Will you be home on Saturday? (Like, you don't have any milking chores? :) )

Not that I wouldn't love to have you come visit :) , but I think Jodie is sold. They are waiting the two weeks to insure she should be bred, and for me to get her papers back from ADGA. I'll know for sure then. She is related to Lalaith by the way. :)
