    Here you go! If you saw the post titled "Problem with goats at the auction today" You know that we rescued some goats at auction. It was a truly blessed day for those goats! Here are some quick pictures that I took while trying to get our new flock settled with the regulars.
    3 baby Nubians (can only see two) all bucks.

    I don't know if that is all, but that is all I took pictures of. [​IMG]

    Very nice looking goats....

    Glad they found a good home....

    I did the same thing yesterday---picked up 3 baby goats from an auction....
    I got a nubian buck, a saanen buck, and an alpine buck....all bottle babies, then I also got as a pitty buy a hamp or suffolk(not sure which yet) baby ewe lamb....I didn't think she would even make it home, but I didn't want to see them just throw her out back to die, so I brought her home as well and this morning she is still here, not doing 100%, but she sure looks alot better than she did yesterday...So here's hoping she makes it....

    They're all really cute. Congrats!

    Your Nubi looks more like a red boer to me. Ears are too short and profile is too straight for Nubian.

    The one you were curious about looks like a common (grade) Pygmy...meaning it could have Nigi, Pygmy, brush or Spanish in there.

    Congrats to the humans for saving the animals. I hate to see those babies pushed through the sale barn. The sale that is close to me has quite a bit of babies go through.
    I don't know what folks are thinking sometimes.
    They are lucky kids!!!!!

    Don't you know not to go to auction with a pocket full of money during kidding season? [​IMG] Just kidding.
    They all look healthy and happy. I can see in the pictures that two have already found their way up onto the observation tower. They will have a ball playing up there!
    People will be begging for the billys this fall when it's time to breed.
    So far I have managed to escape two auctions without bringing bottle babies home. I don't have any goats in milk right now to feed them. But my resistance is weakening...[​IMG]
