Cindi: Well most of them go to 'market' to be auctioned for food, breeding, etc. The girls that have good characteristics and a good family history of personality, health, momma skills etc. will have a chance to be added to the herd depending on whether we need to increase or decrease our numbers.
The boys usually just go to market because we don't run full bloods or do shows and such that a high percentage matters.
We only let the male (a 100% Boer) out for a few weeks to hit 2 heat cycles so all the babies arrive within a few days of each other usually (as he seems to get them (all the adult does) all in the first few days and rarely misses until the second round of heat 21 days later).
That's how we do it
Oh and we have 7 little does (or yearlings) we kept from 2008's kidding season to be added to the herd to breed later this year giving us 17 breedable does later this year (kidding season 2010 is going to be a madhouse!)
The main reason we have them is for the Ag Tax discount on the property as this small of herd won't make profit vs expense but the tax credit is nice.
asprince and poka-bee: Ours are a high percentage Boer, most of the adult does are 3/4+ Boar/Nubian as I think the line of Spanish blood has died out in the last few years. This makes them decent hardy meat goats for our climate as Brian Bray said. And the brown ones, we have 3 this year and per history that's not happened...ever. But we have 2 good looking brown females this year which I like too. Our typical Boer is brown head, white body which I am ok with but like the unusual colors better.
We have a second herd (of two) Nubian and Nubian Toggenberg which we plan to milk and make cheese. Our Boers are just for meat, not milk.
And pets, hmm...yeah they are in general pets too as we have names for all of them and pet the ones who will let us.
I have pictures of some more babies I'm about to upload from earlier this week so i'll go do that!
