New Goats?.....

Yep I got more.... I needed more like a Hole in my head but.....
We now have Jinx a 3yr old and Cleo a 5 yr old
both pure bred Nubian's. Jinx is spotted and Cleo tri-colored.
They are sweet girls.

That is Ms. Cleo with Pixie behind her
who is not to sure about the new girls.

Everyone all bowed up and showing off...

Ben and Polly playing this morning..

Moses looking all innocent Standing in his feed pan..

The girls this morning..
 It was a little chilly this morning..
So they were all clustered together snoozing..

Hobo's Choice sleeping spot...
 I have a friend who has tried keeping goats while living in town.. Not a big town but they are dry-lotted and she decided it wasn't fair to the goats. Because she couldn't spend much time with them and they were in to small of a pen... So she has 7 all together but 2 that were extra special.. That is Cleo and Jinx.. We have been calling her JJ.. So while she is trying to sell the rest she has sent these 2 to live here. She says because she Knows I will take care of them. They are nice girls and easily handled. They settled in pretty quick..
  Jinx/JJ is in heat though.. She had been in with a Nigerian Dwarf buck but apparently he had not reached yet!Lol.. She almost made a bee-line for the fence between Moses and the main herd.. He was daring enough to brave the electric that was not working(another story for another time) and met his new Doe Friend... They are now safely ensconced in a temporary pen till we can get the fence back up to shocking ability.
 Moses has been posted for sale.. I hope he sales to an individual. I really don't want to keep a buck. It would be much easier with out him. I know Plenty of goat people to find a nice buck for breeding when it time.. Hal, Hope's boy will be going to his new home Tuesday! Yah! He is the reason the fence is not working now.. Grrrrrr!
 So my herd will now consist of 10 does.. But Sissy will be going to a new home too once she dries up. So I will have 9 permanent does... NINE... But they are sweet hearts everyone of them. And colorful!

The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity. Malachi 2:6

ahhh ..a women after my own heart LOL! You sound like me Tonia! What a great santuary you provide to care for your goat family. They are so cute with all their mannerisms ....like standing in food bowls and doing "things" to electric fences. :-)
