We had decided not to get goats until next year. There are just way too many other obligations to take care of before we need to worry with paying for a fence for them. Well, a friend who is not nearly as practical as we are purchased 3 goats. They're supposed to be Nigerian Dwarfs. Anyhow, he's bought the goats without having a place to put them. He's paid for and had delivered enough fence panels and T-posts to build a respectable sized yard for the goats. I've erected the pen in my spare time ( :haha: :haha: :haha: ) this week and he's supposed to bring the goats to us tomorrow. Both does are supposed to be bred by a different buck than the one he bought. He's supposed to be paying for all the feed and wormers. He's paid for the fencing that I get to keep and he's giving me a flock of about 30 Birmingham Roller Pigeons that I'm very envious of. They are coming tomorrow also. If the goats are in fact Nigerians, we'll keep one of the bucklings. We'll go ahead and try to find a Nubian and have her bred to the older buck. That way her babies will be half Nubian and half Nigerian (aka Mini Nubians). The older Nubians and her doelings will be unrelated to the buck we keep from the friends goats so we'll have a starter herd of Mini Nubians which seem to be exactly what we want. Monday is my wife's birthday. Sam, our beloved Pyrenese, will be 3 Monday. It's his birthday too. Hopefully the post office will get things right this time and I'll have a starter flock of Orloff chicks arriving early this week. They're supposed to hatch Monday. My wife is very excited about all these critters sharing her birthday. Didn't Shrek have a thread somewhere quoting that Country Song Why Can't Every Day Be Just This Good?
