Two Bucks for us

Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats from Kids Corral in Marion, NC

Kids Corral LB Russell Stover "Nougat" Born: May 9, 2007
the son of Russell Stover Kids Corral Milk Dud "Dud" Born April 5, 2008

Dud and Nougat

The bucks couldn't have any privacy from the neighbors who were nosing around.
Franklin! get out of there.

Dud faces off with a Cuckoo Marans hen.

June peeks in the pen of the new boys.

Clara comes over to get a good look.

Dud and Nougat think it's funny that the girls are spying on them.

My gosh Clara, all but throwing yourself at Nougat.
Mike says Clara looks to have a new spring in her step now.

Now, we have 5 Nigerian Dairy Goats
Clara, June, SweetPea which are Grandmother, Daughter, Granddaughter
Nougat, MilkDud which are Father and Son
I suppose we may have some kids in May or June

Congratulations on your new additions. They sure are cute.
I daresay you will have baby goats in about 5 months should you let them get better acquainted :) I think baby goats are just about the cutest things on earth - I'm rather partial to baby lambs and calves too.....

You have some really nice looking turkeys and chickens on your farm.

How sweet! Clara has a crush on Nougat! I bet they'll make some pretty babies with their color combinations. And my bet is on the hen squaring off with Dud! Are you keeping the bucks or are they only on loan?

Dear Lord, now I have to brace myself for the inevitable: adorable baby Nigerian dwarf goats! Aaaaaaargh! MORE CUTE!

Your new goats are so sweet! Goats are amazingly cute. Your cuckoo marans look a lot like my Dominiques. I read somewhere that the Doms have some French Marans somewhere in their bloodlines. They are beautiful hens- congrats! I wish I had more room, I'd love a few marans!

Those are beautiful goats! I can't wait to get mine!!!

Teesa and Bill said...

OH yeah!! I was hoping you'd post some pictures!! They're beautiful. I'm jealous Sam got to see them. I'll have to come back over when the weather warms up a little.

Congratulations! Those are 2 handsome fellows you have there.
Have you planned who you will breed to who?
I agree it will be interesting to see the kids :-) The color combinations you have with the lighter does and darker bucks should produce some beautifully marked babies.
Have the boys started courting the girls yet?
That Sweet Pea is a precious little one, love her photos you recently posted :-)
