Hello everyone, I always find myself on this forum when looking up something regarding goats. My boyfriend & I sort of fell into goats about 3 years ago. Our fist season with babies went fabulous. Last year however, one of our does broke her foot & miscarried one & the other was premature. Sadly we lost him at 2 weeks. Which was our only incident. This year unfortunately we have run into a big problem 2 of our does, went into premature labor & out of each we had twins where one didn’t make it. Of the 2 surviving. One we are bottle feeding and not looking too good & the other is up walking able to nurse momma is all about the baby. Anyways. This was meant to be an intro but in experiencing these things for the first time I thought it was about time to look more into this forum which has already helped tremendously & that I thank you all. We own a purebred Alpine buck named Billy Ray (I didn’t name him). Then we have our twin Toggenbergs Patty & Marty. Last year we ended up with Gloria (an unregistered alpine who had been dog attacked) & Rita, La Mancha who up until we got her was terrified of people. Now we have Sunnie who is our doe from our first year. & unfortunately I’m not gonna finish naming the rest but that includes the triplets (Gloria’s & a Pygmy that we didn’t Kno about) blondie (Rita’s, also Pygmy) & the 3 boys (twins from Pattie & 1 from Mattie). So we ended up with our hands quite full of goats.
