So we went ahead and made the plunge! Our goats are not as friendly and sociable as we hoped they would be and dont seem to be coming around. so we had two options- sell them and start over or breed the doe and hand raise the kids from the start. Well this morning my doe, Darby woke up the entire neighborhood at six this AM telling us that shes ready for some lovin'. I took it as a sign and drove her out to the hills to meet with the only breeder ive been able to get in touch with. She had mini lamanchas and mini nubians. we ended up choosing their smallest buck who happened to be a lamancha. Boy was Darby happy. Anywhooo, i payed good money to get this done and now i am just hoping were doing the right thing. Im excited and have no clue how I am going to be able to wait five months for these babies! Mom is chocolate and the stud was black and white. I was really hoping to get some colorful kids but this doesnt seem like the best combo for that now that i think of it. Also the stud was at least 25 inches and my little girl looks to be MAYBE 18. I hope the babies arent too big for her and i hope when they mature they end up on the smaller side. SOOOO nervous! lol . sheesh. just wanted to share with the world. I hope these babies like us more than Darby and our wether Abner... now i have got TONS of reading to do. Yikes! Anyone here have goats of this mix?
