    I finally got my three new Boer Does and I love them!

    I got them from my boss, for FREE, in exchange for one kid in the fall for show. They have always driven down to Texas to pick up goat and lamb kids for his grandkids for showing. Well, the line he buys from are called Harbour, which has extensive history. These three were born at his place last year and came from his Harbour females. He already has them bred, so should kid around October/November.

    The smaller (dirtier one in the pic) her name is Peachie (It was his 5yr old grandsons goat), and second in command. The bigger black headed one (closest to the camera in first pic) is head goat and still needs a name. My favorite goat the one that has been shaved and has almost no brown on her face I have named her Blossom.

    <<<almost no brown on her face I have named her Blossom>>>

    I am assuming you meant "no white" on her face, right? [​IMG]

    How about something that goes with Peachy and Blossom, maybe Flower? Or Tangerine? or Clementine? [​IMG]

    Very pretty girls, congrats! [​IMG]

    Nice trade!
    Goat meat is more like lamb than beef.

    LOL, yes, I meant no white on her face. Geez. Maybe I will go with Peachie, Blossom and Lilly

    I am so happy with them. They are so docile and have a funny sounding cry, my other ones are higher pitched, these sound almost hoarse, guess they just have an "accent" [​IMG]
