You absolutely KNOW I want to see those pics Ryan.

And yes..... soon.... very soon.... I should have my baby goats. It's killing me to wait. I see all these baby goats being born around town, and the ones from the farm I'm getting them from aren't born yet. Sad

I'm ready. Their temporary house is up - till the barn is built. And I've got goats on the brain so bad I can practically smell them already. Smiley

It's not so weird. I like the smell of horses - even in a very dirty horse barn. But I especially like the smell of horses fur on a hot day when they've been standing in the sun. I just love to bury my face against their back. Smiley

The farm I have in mind for getting some babies has purebred Alpines. Many different colors. I haven't even seen the mamas yet, so after the babies are born I may end up changing my mind about getting them from this particular farm. But I've received good reports about these people, and been told they take very good care of their goats.

Hi all,
 I have a small herd of Nubins and togginburg. They just got done haveing there kids. Three bucklings,O my son would be mad at me if I did not mintion the pigmy kids his doe had. She had two kids!

 I to like the smile of goats and fish! I had not noticed a smell on my chickens per say. I do in the chicken coup but I would not count that. I do not care for the smell of the buck at all.

See ya,

Brian

Oh yes....... the buck!

I am so glad my husband, when he captured my heart, didn't have to go to the same tricks a buck does to catch his girl. P-U
I won't be getting a buck. Not unless we decided to have goats big time - which is sorta doubtful. But if we did have a buck...... he'd be far far from the house.

Firestool I am glad you mentioned toggs. My very first goat was a togg and my favorite goat remains a togg. I just love there brown coat. It is funny how toggs and a few of the other dairy breeds look alike in stature but are different breeds, o well, love em all. bye

That would really help latebee..... but what about the fact they pee all over their own heads? You can't change that by removing scent glands. Smiley
