The Osboers

6 Aug

I had someone ask me about my Osboer goats, and it made me realize that I haven’t talked about last names in a long time.  My first buck was a three-quarters Boer goat who came with the name Ozzy.  He was named after Ozzy Osbourne, and I changed that to reflect his breed.  He became Ozzy Osboer.

All of his kids had that last name, and after I sold him, I kept one of his kids, Goliath.

I still have one of Goliath’s kids–Flower.

I still have tons of Osboer goats though because I will always have a buck.  After Goliath was Marley.

The only kid of his left on the farm is Myson.

Marley’s boy, Fionn, has given me more kids than any other buck.  Before I lost him, he gave me 229 kids.

Fionn Osboer

In the last few years, I kept some of his girls.  There are quite a few of his descendants on the farm, including a couple of oopsie grandbabies.

Bubbles Osboer

I also have two of his bucks.  The first is Xerxes.

I’ve already kept a few of Xerxes kids too.

The second is Fionn’s last buck, Freddie.

Freddie Osboer

I’ll keep Freddie for another year, but his little buck, Frodo, will be used to make my perfect kid.  My hope is that this perfect kid will be a buck.  It will be my 7th generation of Osboer bucks.

In addition to my Osboer bucks, I’ve had several other lines.  I’ll share those tomorrow.
