I see spots

I finally was able to find a quality dairy doe with spots!!!!!

She's a yearling Nubian and came from a wonderful couple, the previous owners had the nicest, cleanest place I have seen in some time. All goats were friendly, well fed, shiny coated and everyone of them had their feet trimmed. I had been getting very frustrated in my search for another doe, but can recommend this farm w/o reservation.

Stumpy, our little bull calf for the year is absolutely adorable, suspect he may be a shortleg, but he looks just like a miniature "bob" his sire.

Pastures are looking great this year with all of the rain we have had. We've lost quite a few trees in all the storms but fortunately they have all been box elders or other 'crap' trees.

Currently getting a dozen or more eggs a day, really need to start taking them to the farmers market.

She is beautiful! Isn't it nice to visit a farm & find no flaw??

I've bought quite a few "fixer upper" goats & just recently put a deposit on 2 Lamancha does that I can't find even the slightest fault in care! I'm excited & dunno what I'm gonna do when they come home & I'm not stuck correcting bad feet, getting them properly dewormed or having to put weight on them! :)
