    Hi guys! I got a little buck kid last week and everyone on here kept telling me I should get another as they like other goats for company.
    Well I found some for sale for 20. I went to look at them and I saw one I liked. I asked is that a boy? The guy reached in between the goats legs and said yup. I said I would take him. We got him home and put him on the grass and I noticed he squatted to pee. I thought hmmm, Oliver doesn't do that. I looked. ANd He's a she! I feel so lucky but also bad for the guy but not bad enough to take her back! I will post a pic so you guys can tell me what her breed or cross is. Shes adorable!
    Around here if you want a female they are at least $250, we originally wanted a girl until I realized it was such a huge price difference so we decided we would settle on a wether.

    What breed or cross is she?

    She looks either alpine or Nigi, depending on her size and age (I cant judge from the photo). Did the person have adult goats there? Were they full size or minis?

    Lol I have done that before too, just a quick look or feel and wrote the kid down in the birth book as a boy/girl, tag it (I tag boys in the left ear, girls in the right ear) then a few months later I'm thinking hey ... that doe kid is looking awfully masculine, or wow, the buck kid is awfully pretty and looks like a doe .... hmm, he piddles out the back end ... lol

    Hey, I'd be doing a hula dance, you got a doe kid for a buck price!

    Now just make sure you wether your little guy so you dont have any accidents ...

    (Btw I havent forgotten to send that stuff through to you by PM, just been awfully busy with my doe in at the vet almost every day for a week!)
