The people that I work for at the goat farm want to sell a couple of their extra goats.. The only one they've decided on is a blue roan nubian/mini alpine doe named Bluebell.. She's registered as an experimental.. I think she's about a year, maybe two.. The lady offered her to me first before actually putting her up for sale and I accepted! And she'll only be $100.. Now, this doe does have some issues we'll have to work through.. Like she's rather skittish because the lady said they weren't able to handle her much.. Most of their babies they bottle raise.. Didn't ask why she wasn't.. I've already made some progress just from yesterday.. I carried some animal cookies around in my pocket and would offer them to her randomly.. With the last cookie she let me pet her face without running off.. I think she'll come around pretty easily.. I might also sit in a stall with her for a while so it's just one on one time.. I've got a whole 9 months to work with her.. She's also never been bred before.. With her being a mix, they really didn't have a reason to breed her since she was only a pet.. But yesterday we gave her a shot to bring her into heat.. That way when I take her home I'll be able to milk her.. Then a couple months later when I get my american nubian doeling from them (cross your fingers for doelings, lol), I'll already have a milk supply for her and I'll have had lots of practice milk.. I'll also have a companion for the doeling when she's old enough to go outside.. Yes, I know it's not the perfect deal.. But this doe is really cute and I really do think she'll come around.. She's really sweet and gentle.. Her mom (mini alpine) isn't skittish at all so maybe I'll use her to influence the doe.. I've tamed feral kittens before.. We'll see how I do with a doe.. = ) I'm just excited to know that I'll have a goat to milk in 9 months..
