Bluebelle and baby Snowdrop
Sister's and best friends
These are one week old nigerian doelings, aren't they the cutest ever? About a month ago I put a reserve on a doeling out of Bluebelle from Rhodie Ridge Nigerians. She was pregnant, and we weren't sure if she'd even have a doeling, but she did, not one but two. Tuesday Kaley and I went to go pick out which one we wanted, we picked Snowdrop. She will be Kaley's 4-H goat to raise and show. She has good bloodlines, her dam is out Poppy Patch and her sire is a Pecan Hollow buck.
Jessica the owner is local, and her children are also in 4-H too, so it's nice to have a new friend in town. She has chickens, rabbits (I'm also getting a Champagne d'argent buck from her the end of August) and she raises Nigerians. I have met the nicest people in the goat world, and am having a lot of fun.
Snowdrop will be ready to come home in about two and a half months, when she's weaned and old enough. I didn't know when I put reserve on her that I would also be getting the Nubian and Lamancha. Now she'll have a whole goat family to come home to. Goats like to be in herd of 5 or 6 or more, just having two seemed kind of lonely for Stormy and Joon, they seem happier with more friends.
