My farm neighbor stopped by. She said the goats look good; she couldn't get Charlie to eat much either. DS names everything Charlie. DD named hers "Spot." She may lose her vote. Linda they're both billies. We decided they're a boer/Nubian cross. She thought they were 2-3 mos but HER goat expert friend said they're 4 weeks. So I guess I'll just have to see what happens.
so when does the goat groping and rubber banding occur ??
I've groped twice but didn't pay attention to which goat I was handling either time. so I'll be doing it twice again tomorrow. Not sure on the banding, though. Depends on if DH will let us keep them or not.
you mean he doesn't know yet ??????????????
Every other Monday DH goes to town to hang with his friends. They disc golf or go to a movie, have supper, and then a bible study. So he left straight from the sale barn. Another reason for my panic: no level-headed DH to help ground me. It's all fine now. And he'll be home soon.
We didn't want billies. Auctioneer didn't say what they were, but they went cheap so we were hopeful. So my options: raise a bit and sell, or wether and keep. He has talked about selling them immediately, but I don't want to be a goat flipper. Besides, this is good experience for the future.
maybe better a goat flipper then a goat groper. I have read if you neuter them you can train them to pull small carts and give the little kids rides
