post #26681 of 65573

Been watching desperate landscapes all day... ( i need background noise while working at home, it is too quiet here during the day with no kids in the house) i want one of those guys to come make my yard look pretty too!! LOL I get good ideas, but never have the time to do anything about it. Oh well, such as life.

1 more 5 to 5, then i finally have time off..

 

Blarney, pm me info on those goats,,,,also looking for 2 or 3 myotonic goats (spelling)....aka...fainting goats...

 

Having trouble finding folks that will leave the boys intact,,,,,breeding is not the plan,,,,,It does effect taste of meat though..hide.gif...need to do more research on this subject, but apparently after taking those precious jewels from the boys, they put fat and muscle on in different ways..

Is that normal? (sorry if that's a silly question)

I'm going to head over to the barn now to find out what's in my layer pellet from the pet store which is just under $12/50lb bag.

Geez, everyone near me is $20+/50lb....for 16%.....pellet/crumble.....

Just looked it up! how cool is that! I could hook one up to the electric fence and keep the darn sheep in their own field. Or have dinner.... Fried lamb?

Hey wing pm me if you are still looking I know of two breeders of them.

will get back to ou tomorrow when I have more time....

 

anyone with info to add feel free...here is what we are looking for

goats that can be both milk(small quantities) or meat.

small size..I am 5 feet tall, need to be able to handle them...

 

we have decided upon either the fainters or nigerian...the plan is to get a few of each and see what we like better....i could easily go to auction and find some but I would rather find a breeder to deal with who will understand that we are new to goats and need help with silly questions....also one who will sell culls at reasonable prices since most likely the first batch will end up in the freezer till we decide which direction to go.

I will keep you in mind!!  I have the heavy equipment at my disposal... just the fact that the BF is ALWAYS working is a problem as he is the operator, not me. If i got the skid loader that close to the house, we might be looking at a remodel instead of landscaping. And i have already backed the little dump truck in to a wall at the feed mill. LOL
