    Here are pictures of our two "soon to be" Nigerian milking goats. We will bring them home after the pool-pen is cleaned out. We are almost there!

    The golden one we will name Buttercup and the Petunia will be the other brown spotted one.
    The kids are excited.

    I'll be given a milking lesson and they'll be trimmed and I'll also get the milking stool to go with them.

    Now, if I could just get over the wisdom tooth extraction pain! [​IMG] Today my cheek is blown up like a balloon.

    Please remember to video when bathing the "soon to be yours" goats. You could win $10,000 from America's Funniest Vidoes!!

    I'm not sure yet. The woman will give me their papers. They are registered with the NDGA. I guess I'll find out more when I go for my training session.

    Just finished cleaning out the pool area and now planning our milking quarters (insulated and with heat lamp for me!) and their living quarters with sleeping bench.
