Selling More Kids

10 Nov

We had a pretty nice day on Saturday.  Actually, it was really nice!

It’s not looking good for many more of those, so I enlisted the help of my nephew, and we tagged and loaded out eight of the girls.

Socks, Poki, Snow White, Angela, Daliah, Button, Penny and Venus

Penny was in there when I shut the girls in along with Moira and Venus, but they didn’t get sold.

I only have three March kids left on the farm, and they are all staying: Moira, Bubbles, and Penelope.

I still have a few June kids here too.  I will try to sell the two boys next weekend.  Then I have to decide who (if any) of the girls I’m keeping.

I still adore Joy and want to keep her, but she’s not making it easy.

I also like Chiffon, but she’s another snooty little girl.

I do think I’ll keep Venus.

Although, I always reserve the right to change my mind.

Joy seems to be enjoying the MGIT (Milk Goat in Training) program. She’s quick to come when she sees me at the milk room.

Joy and Caroline (followed by llamas looking for food)

She’s quite happy to eat sweet feed while I milk her maa.

Although, Zinnia doesn’t seem to be too happy.  I’ve had to start putting the collar on so she doesn’t wander into the soap room or just not let me milk her.  I don’t know why…

After I’m done milking, she’s all sweet and snuggly.

Then I give Joy a bit of attention too.  She doesn’t mind it.

I’m not sure it will really make her tame, but it’s good to know she’ll come into the milk room to eat if I actually have to catch her for something.

And I still haven’t decided if I’m going to keep another bratty goat or not.
