Alright. She got a backyard mix. I’m guessing boer Nigerian. Had milked before and been exposed to buck recently. She’s a bit skittish, but not bad. I believe she’ll warm up quickly. And way way way cheaper!
Good fit.

Great! Handling and her settling will make a change for the better. Your friend wants milk, so most any doe will provide that. How much and how long is the reason for everyone's choices -- once they become involved. 🤗. So this will satisfy the urge, she can refine her choices on the next one.

Yes, there will be a next :lol: addictive, they are. That's why I have "several" 😂😂🤣🥰

We will expect updates :idunno:old. Can't just not do that ... Leave us hanging 😂

Oh I know lol. Ask me about my only three (multiplied by 2).

She wants to get a second one, but another lady hasn’t popped up yet.

Is there a pee pregnancy test for goats btw? We’d like to know if she’s pregnant, but I can’t draw blood and don’t want to put her through me trying. Seller said she was exposed, but didn’t know.

Possibly wrap with pool noodles.
Honestly, it’s a learning curve anyway horns just add a little to that. This was the best goat available, so might as well learn with horns. They make the goat easier to catch and handle half the time any way.
