    We had a problem with our hands actually. It turns out to be a great story with 3 Bottle baby Nubian bucklings, 2 Nigerian bottle baby Doelings, 3 Just barely weaned Pygmys 2 bucklings and a doeling, a sheep that I don't even know what it is, a couple of Boer does, a Saanen doe, and the best of all a Nubian Doe with Milk! Now comes the grafting process. Only problem is I think we have a forth emergency bottle baby coming on Monday...

    I know, I know... Pictures.

    We brought home 13 animals today. Had to dicker with a meat buyer at the end to get the Nigerian babies. He ended up getting the momma for free... but we saved the babies!

    I am much to tired to work with the pictures now, but some we will be selling and some we will be keeping, so I will get pictures on here in one form or another tomorrow.

    Everybody lives so far away from me with all these goat babies [​IMG] It's going to kill me waiting until June and July for my does to kid, if they're even pregnant [​IMG]
    This is why I don't go to auctions, I would come home with a truck load of animals. My husband would kill me. Do they take VISA?[​IMG]

    Well great job! Always nice to help those that need it most. (That is how we ended up with basically all the animals.)
