Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats photo's

I've been home for 3 days, only left home one time to make a run to the hardware store in town. Got some projects done - a nephew helped Mike with some fencing for the bucklings, and they installed the A/C-heat machine. During our rough winter, the propane man had trouble getting up here so now we'll have electric heat for backup.

TootleLu has been sold to a good home, she is going to be roommates with CocoBean at Tonto's Barn. Logan, owner of TB, also breeds Nigerians and he liked Toot's bloodlines. His CocoBean was judged well at the last show.

SweetPea is pregnant, see her little udder that's forming? I wasn't home when the "breeding" by Pappy took place (grrr and dirty look to Mike), Mike says Pappy accidently got out and mated SweetPea. Then, Mike supposedly wrote the date down and lost the piece of paper. Soooo, I don't know when she is due and I wasn't told about the "accident" the day it happened because Mike knew I'd be unhappy about it.

Dud getting groomed for the upcoming show.

You know you're a hillbilly redneck when you use hay-bale twine as hinges.
Back to the office tomorrow, hope you had a great Memorial Weekend.

I am sure Tootlelu is going to a great home.

I hope everything goes smoothly for SweetPea.

I don't know who is strutting more in those pics, Mike or Dud. :)

Don't know about hillbilly redneck, baling twine hinges, down here in Oz we call it "woman's wire".

Love the girls standing on the beautiful pink chairs watching Milk Duds gettin' all prettied up.

I don't know how anyone can live without baling twine and duct tape.

I loved the pictures of Mike and Milk Dud. You can see Mike's pride in Dud. He's one handsome goat. But then, all of your goats are beautiful.

Such lovely photos - your goats are gorgeous! We use baling twine for all kinds of crazy things around here - it sure stands up to a lot of abuse!

Your goats are so beautiful. Love the little pom poms at the end of their tails.:-) The 'peanut gallery' watching Milk Dud getting groomed is hilarous!

Oh my gosh those babies are growing so fast.
Ah, twine. What we would do without it! It has so many uses.
I see Franklin is looking all handsome. :)
