Patience and Faith, girls from the Dill herd

Last Friday Ellen Dorsey put a post up about a few Nubian/Alpine cross doe kids she had for sale. They caught my eye, and soon I was in the car headed to Dill's-A-Little Goat Ranch. It was nice to finally meet Ellen in person and see her nice place and all her gorgeous goats.

These two girls are sisters. I have a thing about dairy experimental crosses - they're almost always my favorites, hands down. They milk outstanding typically. And there's just something about those funny little ears.

We named them Patience (white one) and Faith (tan one). Their dam is Dill's Aurek's Pink, a beautiful Alpine doe that can be seen on this page at the very bottom. Their sire is Dorsey-Lane BE Ramblin Man

Without further ado, here are the sweet little things!

They're so cute! Love the names. We have a Patience (a.k.a. Bambi; although neither of those are her registered name :) ), too; she's gold/ tan, though. :) Her sister, Gentle, is pure white. How old are they? Blessings, Lauren :)

They were just born this last Friday, so just under a week old now.

I plan to put up a post with all the pictures of the kids we are keeping this year and their names... I think there's 13. But for now, here they are.

The two bucklings we are keeping are Heartbreaker and TJ.

The doelings are Patience, Faith, Mercy, Joy, Mocha Madness, Hazelnut, Wild Thing, Princess (not sure on that name :)), Lulu, and HoneyPot.
