Last Thursday, my Mom and I headed out to Susan's farm again to pick out the last two doelings. Although I got to do all the selecting of the previous doelings, because I am the family goat caretaker. This time it was different. I was picking out MY OWN! They were a gift from my Dad. It was even harder making the decisions. After quite some time, I finally picked them out. Here are MY little darlings.
She is a LaMancha cross. Very dairy with loooong legs.
The pictures really don't do her justice. She is white with light brown and gray patches and strip down her back. She is expected to get darker as she gets older.
She is LaMancha crossed with Boer. Very sweet, but also hard to get a good picture of. She is always on the go.
She has a cute little black nose, and a small black sock on her back hoof.
I had a lot of fun figuring out names for all the kids. My Mom and I, decided on Kanga for the little buckling, because he was hopping on his back legs like a kangaroo when on a leash. Then the first four doelings, I though would be good to name after the characters on Keeping Up Appearances. Hyacinth, Rose, Daisy and Violet. It was so easy to pick which one was going to be Hyacinth. She is VERY demanding about getting attention. We continued naming all the newcomers with flower names. Tulip, Lily, Dandelion and Daffodil. AND If we get a LaMancha buck he will be named Onslow of course : )
So I will close with a question. Are you a fan of Keeping Up Appearances?
