    Wish you could. The sale I had on them fell through and I haven't advertised them since. Now that they are bred, its especially hard to make myself sell them....I LOVE Boer kids!!!!! Maybe I can beg some room from the neighbors for my small Boer herd for the winter.....they sold all their milk cows and probably have some small amount of land I could rent....hmmm, its an idea I'll have to think on a bit....

    This is a picture tooken this summer and you can see some of the gals pictured above in it. Trinket is the white one in the far back with the light shining on her. Suprise is the alpine closest to me and Brandy has her butt in the picture.

    My pictures up above are not the best I know...it was cold when some where tooken and now they are even older than those pictures...

    Emly -- I know the feeling -- my neighbors have 10 acres that butt up to us that are just sitting there doing nothing -- I know I could come up with a lot of good ways to use -- in fact I often day dream of it....

    I love seeing everyones kids pictures can't wait to share mine come Feb/March!

    Utopia at about a day old with my younger sister, Hannah (14 then). With Braveheart, the Nubian who kidded a few days later with Danielle and Danny (my first time witnessing a goat kid), in the background.
    Utopia is 1/2 LaMancha/Alpine and 1/2 Pygmy. Utopia was the first kid born on the farm in this herd of goats. My father's family had a couple of goats on this farm when he was younger..

    6 years later with her third of four sets of triplets thus far..also her 3rd set of triplet bucklings;

    Also taken last year;
    [​IMG]
    {Please forgive the choke hold. It was wonderful for my younger brother to help and he wanted her face forward. Hadn't seen how to hold the doe's for pictures. He's pushing 6 ft. tall.}

    Utopia is due to kid December 23rd with what I hope is her fifth set of triplets. She's produced 11 bucklings and 5 doelings so far in her lifetime. I've given up on her producing quads despite her size each year (you may recall seeing her rather large mid section this past January) and at this age I don't want quads out of her. She is pushing 8 years old this next March.
    Hannah now has a son (3) and a daughter (1).

    I'm searching for pictures of William and Charlie as month old bucklings with Crucible the heifer calf...but I had to baby sit my niece and nephew mnetioned above this evening so didn't have time.
