Early summer is usually when the kids are sent to new homes. This year I had five kids—four girls and one boy—and he was the first to go.
|Rivus, my sole buckling, on the left.|
I like to wait until they are at least 12 weeks old before weaning them. They do so much better when they’ve been on mother’s milk for as long as they can. By 12 weeks, the boys are usually getting pretty bucky and rambunctious, and even their moms are ready for them to go.
| Rivus was a real sweetheart with a gentle personality.
He’s gone to become herd sire for a new Kinder herd.
With the doelings, I have more time to let them grow and decide which to keep and which to sell. Our pasture is good, and I’ll let their mothers wean them in their own time. I have two sets of twin girls. The oldest are four months old, and the youngest are two months old.
|Echo, Ursa, and Luna are all curious about my camera.|
So, I thought that was it for awhile. Then I got an email from someone I sold Kinders to several years ago. She is selling off her herd and asked if I would like any. Dan and I took a brief road trip and brought back Sky, a doe that was born here. You can see her baby pictures here.
| This is Sky in the newcomers’ pen,
getting to know the other girls.
|Sky on the left and Miracle on the right.|
Miracle has made it her business to continually chase Sky away from the other goats, the hayfeeder, and the barn. That’s because Miracle is a bully. As the newcomer, Sky is her new target. Before that it was Caroline, and before that it was Ellie. Before Miracle, Daisy was the bully. Whatever side of the hay feeder Daisy went to, all the others would rapidly flee to the other side.
