New Kid on the Block
His name is Blue, handsome isn't he.
When we got the girls everyone said not to get a buck as they are hard work and they stink. Well we took this advice and took the girls down to the goat farm to get in kid, trouble is they didn't. So our goat breeding program is six months behind.
We got Blue from the same place as we got the girls, he has been hand raised and should make a good sire. He and Genevieve are in a paddock together and he got straight to work, so hopefully we will have some kids in about five months.
We now are up to six lambs, two sets of twins and two singles, one more ewe looks like she will lamb soon and another is a bit further off. So far so good, although there is a crow hanging around today that we were worried about. Peter tried to shoot him but no luck. The lambs are quite strong though so I think they will be OK.
