    tooooo cute!!!!
    beware, however, that she may never get very big. my friend had a fainter bred at 6 mon and kidded at 11 mon. the baby, charlotte, is the size of my 3 mon old pygmy babies, and weighs less, around 20 lbs!! if she stays small, dont breed her!
    Lola may also have her growth stunted from this. feed her grain and hope she grows bigger.
    good luck with them!!!

    teust me Jen H., we take her in the house when she gets too hot outside, and EVERYBODY hugs her and makes sure that she is happy. She is also VERY soft, she has fuzzy fur for som reason, the babies born 12 days before her did not. Well see ya.

    a soft coat is a pygmy trait. so is the agouti coloring. Ivy has the most common pygmy color out there. i think lola is a kinder?

    Hate to be stupid, but what exactly is a kinder, I know that it is a cross between two goats, just can't remember which.

    Oh then maybe I was right, I thought that they had Nubian and Pygmy in them, as well as goodness knows how many other breeds, but Nubian and Pygmy for the most part.

    Thank you, I am really enjoying them, and Lola is taking to motherhood as if that is ALL she has ever dreamed about, she loves Ivy so much.

    So weird reading this thread, b/c my "real" (off-the-board) name is Ivy.

    Congrats on the new kid. :)

    They are sooo cute! I wonder how Lola had her okay, she is a big baby, compared to her mom! :confused: Glad that all turned out well, we can tell that you really love your animals! Congratulations. :sing:
