    This thread is specifically for showing off your beautiful goats, cows and sheep, and chatting/asking questions about them! I will start with a few of my goats and cows (I don't have sheep). BTW, they can be any age, crossbred or purebred. Please post the name of the animal (if they have a name) and the breed (if you know their breed).

    Below is the bull that Violet is currently bred to. He's a Randall. Violet should have a pretty calf! She's due in September.

    You animals are gorgeous. How many cows do you have? We used to own a dairy farm but have thankfully upgraded to a hobby farm. I have 12 goats, no cows or sheep.

    I do have 2 lamancha wethers. They are very calm goats and don't push me around like my sable and alpine do.

    Thank you! Your two wethers are very handsome! Do you have a picture of your Sable goat? I would love to see her!

    We have six cows total. Four of them are milk cows, and they each have a calf from last spring/summer, plus the Angus foster heifer we got from a friend because she wasn't nursing on her mama. She almost died, but thankfully pulled through! One of our milk cows, Sasha, has Staph A in one quarter of her udder, and so we have her scheduled to be butchered in April. For that reason we need another milk cow. We might be getting a Guernsey/Murray Gray cross cow and her heifer calf soon though!

    We also got a Red Brahman heifer, Soji (short for Sojourner Truth) last November. Below is a picture of five of the six calves together (although you can see Keatha's nose and ear in the background [​IMG]):

    You have a very diverse herd of cattle. I always wanted a Brahma since i was a kid.

    We have Babydoll Sheep.
    Of course the chickens think they make great taxi's, especially in winter!

    They are all beautiful @6th_Happiness ! You brought a bottle baby lamb to the store? How cute!

    We have two bottle goats right now. A Mini-Nubian doeling, and a Mini-Lamancha buckling with blue eyes. They just got dis-budded yesterday, so are a little sore. These pictures were taken about a week ago.
