We got a new goat yesterday! She is a mini-nubian and is 4 months old. She is very sweet and very tiny. She is smaller than Orion who is a month younger than her. She weighs probably half of what Orion weighs. Now, Orion is fat but...
Apparently she didn't show the colors the breeders wanted and she has airplane ears, so she was a good price. I think she is beautiful and will make a good milk goat in a few years. We will be getting another doe in a month who should hopefully be bred and then our goat herd will be complete until babies start coming.
Aurora is still adjusting to her, there is much chasing and banging involved. Orion loves her already. She hasn't met the sheep yet, I'm worried about Sweet Pea hurting her. She can be a little rough with the goats, and Eris is so small. So I will keep her away from the sheep for a few weeks.
