    It was a 400 mile trip, but they were worth every second! I got a 2 yr old Sable doe who is due to kid on January 11th, and a Sable/Nubian doeling that hopefully will kid in May. They're both bred to a black Sable. Pics will come tomorrow, I didn't get home until after dark [​IMG] I'm just delighted with them, they are so gentle and friendly!! Not too long to wait now for 'homemade' milk and cheese.

    Hint taken. But you can't laugh at the black one with a white toupe and socks.

    Ok, here are the terrible two! The black and white one is Dizzy, the Sable, and the palomino one is Rose, half Sable half Nubian. What's that colour called in a goat anyway?! Dizzy is due on 11th January, and Rose in April.

    They do the strangest thing, but maybe it's normal for goats. They look straight up at the sky and seem to stretch their necks?
