Some goats for sale, breeding more does, etc

Let's see. . . for a couple of days last week I put my 3 yearlings (Maple, Blueberry and Double Bubble) in with our little Nigerian buck, Berry Blast. Double Bubble was in heat one of those days, I just hope he bred her! I saw him trying, but he is so little, even to them!

Daisy Mae and Chicci went to their new home last Thursday. So that's it that we had for sale of the dairy does.
We now have a 2 1/2 yr old dry Nubian/Boer doe (her sister is a good milker) for sale for $125, a big 7-8 month old Nubian/Fainter/Boer buckling available for $65, and a Paint Boer buck for sale for $90. We have someone coming to look at the paint buck tomorrow, so he probably is not available anymore. These are all nice goats. None of them are registered. Email or call me if you are interested ( - 918-598-4004).

Today I cleaned the milking parlor - scrubbed the milk stanchion, took the spider webs down, put new fly-strips up, cleaned the shelves, sprayed lots of the room with cleaner, and thoroughly swept the room. Much better. Still some cleaning to do.

Not much else to update on at the moment. It's time for me to go to bed!
