    I'm so excited. This is my first "registered" goat; figured I'd get the best I could find for my stud. I'll get some registered does later -- my girls are purebred nigerian but no papers.

    He's adorable, four weeks old, bottle fed on pastereurized milk. VERY friendly, and hopefully he'll get his sire's temperment and stay that way. The owners show, and the sister (littermate) to his sire has won a few championships. Very milky line. His sire is VERY nice looking and very friendly -- laid back, calm, curious buck. Good looking, too, really nice conformation.

    Saw his dam and granddam -- both had nice udders, nice temperment, nice conformation. Looks like he's got nice udders on both sides, and my does have nice udders, so hopefully I'll have some very milky offspring. :D
