I cried all the way home!

Today we packed Addison and Becca Boo into the car to take them to another farm to be bred. Chip and Gidget didn't understand what was going on and when they were out in the barn alone they we very sad and did a lot of crying. (Notice Gidgets little black feet between Addisons')

Karen at Pelican Acres has beautiful Nigerian Dwarf goats and she offered her buck Trapper to breed my girls. The set-up is very goat friendly and her babies have wonderful personalities. Look at the smile on that little doe!

Addison and Becca were put right in with Trapper, and Becca didn't look comfortable at all.

I didn't get a good picture of Trapper but Addison doesn't seem too impressed. Addison should reconsider because Trapper has excellent blood lines and is quite a handsome buck.

"Becca, if we ignore him and turn our backs maybe he will go away!"

When it was time to go both of my little girls wanted desperately to come home with me. I couldn't look as it broke my heart and I just began to cry. I cried all the way home. I can't wait to go back and get them!


  1. Awwww...poor you... but...BABIES!!! And, from the looks of it, they're going to be beautiful ones, too! How old are your does? They still look so tiny.
    When do you get to go back to get them?

  2. Addison is 1.5 years old and this is her first breeding, Becka Boo is 8 months. I hope to have them back in 2-3 weeks.

  3. oh, they don't understand! This whole process is confusing to the poor girls! They have to leave home, they don't know Trapper yet, I'm sure they miss you! But the babies will be so GREAT!!! Good luck, I hope they both get pregnant!

  4. Lynn - I got an email this morning letting me know that Addison "stood" for Trapper. Kids on April 1st?
