    Default Meet My Herd

    Okay if I can figure out the attachments, These are my 2 girls Guinen, Chamoisee, and Genie, Cou Clair. Between them they had 4 doe kids for me this year, some of who are also pictured. These girls have served me well for several years and will soon be retired. Their doe kids will be taking their place.
    My adult girls are Alpine/Nubian mix, the kids are crossed on LaMancha to create a hardy 3 way cross.

    Dexter is the herd sire, he is extremely gentle and makes the funniest hooting noises.

    Dexter looks very wise!
    There is a farmer that uses goats for gorse control in Tassie. They seem to eat everything, blackberries now included on my list.
