Wow... last day of 2011. This year seriously flew by didn't it. I thought I would take today to go back and see some of the babies born this past year - love to see the babies! Honestly I thought I would be showing you some really new babies today.... Libbie just decided she wants to wait until 2012 to have them.... but man is she wide! And waddling everywhere. Can't be too far off now though -
But here are a lot of the babies from 2011
Rhett and Scarlet - the two friendliest goats in the world. Obnoxious friendly. These two are keepers for sure! We have to remind them that they really shouldn't be lap climbers now that they are now full grown, but hey.. they are dwarf goats so they aren't too too big I guess... LOL
So for 2012... Well first up will be Libbies puppies... goats for sure LOTS and LOTS of goats. New Buck Peso has really been doing his job and I can't wait to see what color babies we get. And the only donkey. Well Annabell is it - she won't be due for a long way off, but that should be our only baby donkey for the year. We have had some population control in effect. And this year we really want to thin out and sell a bunch of our babies from the last 3 years before there are more. Just way too many to feed - Hubby is wanting to look into getting Boar goats this year, breeding them for selling more off. They are a great auction goat, I just don't want to think of where they go from the auction. But if we can sell more that will help with the feed bill right? Well that is what he keeps telling me anyway - And with all the donkeys we have they will start doing a job in the pens with the goats and keep the coyotes away. That is the biggest problem for people with boar goats in our area. Shouldn't be an issue at all here with all the donkeys!
Hope you have enjoyed Animal Crackers in 2011 - and I look forward to a great 2012!
HUGS from all of us here!
