Keep Repeating to Self





I don't need another buck. I don't need another buck. I don't need another buck. I don't need another buck.

This has proven to be a buck year with the last of the goat girls delivering two bucklings and a precious doe. These were the much anticipated babies out of Jacob, from Brenda's farm in Missouri. I'm loving the colors! And their conformation! And their sweet, bubbly noses (as the kids say around here), plus those long ears! But since I already have three bucks to breed with this fall, I am resisting the urge to keep a fourth ... even if he is one of the most beautiful bucks to have been born to date on our farm, and we could use some more blacks in our herd, and he comes from tremendous milk lines ... I don't need another buck. I don't need another buck. I don't need another buck.

Oh ... he is beautiful. I'd have a hard time resisting him too. I'm glad Jacob did good for you. I wish he had given you more girls though.

Oh yeah...that will help. LOL! :) I know a solution to this...get more does. Actually, we are "buckless" now...hmmm...and we have two does. Another "hmmm...". All kidding (no pun intended) aside, your goats are beautiful. Love the photos Terri!

I really can see what you mean. What temptation. Just when you think, "okay, no more keepers", there's always one more.
