My small pond

"Thanks Bev, that is good to know. We walk our goats near a large pond, perhaps similar in size to yours, natural as well, and they don't ever drink from it, but they don't live with it. Do your goats have access to the river always or just…"

My small pond

"Such a pretty pond. Yours is a beautiful addition to a yard.    We have a large pond out of our yard - about a 1/4 acre.  A natural pond now - turtle moved in from the river,  Canadian geese come every year to a floating nest…"

My small pond

"Let's say there was a pond 3 times this size, with a good filter and a small waterfall,  in your goat pen and ducks swam in it. Would you allow goats near it to drink? Do you think they would choose to drink from it? We are new to ducks…"

BTW, meant to tell you that, I especially like Romeo's 8 month old pic. I think he looks pretty tuff in it too! He struck a really nice pose there. Love that deep Mahogany color especially with those eyes! I would love to get the color of that look in my herd one day!

Well, you may actually mean Oak, after all. He is on my profile pic! He is from Oldesouth farm! That was actually the first buck I found, but it took me longer to get him here. I bought him as a kid and he is not proven yet. He is 16 months now and has 4 wives, so hopefully soon he will have children. You couldn't ask for one to pose any better than he did in that pic. He really was strutin' his stuff wasn't he? He was just as beautiful, when I finally got to him in person too. Only now he is so black! You wouldn't believe how that hair has grown out all black looking! He is still really tiny and short! Hope he grows some more. Sure he will as he is not even a year and a half yet. But I certainly do not think he will ever go over size, that's for sure. He is as fat as a little pig. Looked pregnant when I got him and still does. Very easy keeper! A real sweetheart too!

ok, no longer confused. "Mature buck", yea now I know which one you mean. That is Quill! Isn't he something! And you would not believe the gorgeous kids he threw there for that farm. I still can't believe that they sold him to keep his GORGEOUS SON! I was suppose to get the son and they changed their minds (I literally cried and was heart broken)about selling. But, I was even happier when I got the dad instead, because I know when you find an animal you like you go to the father to get more like that. HAHA, now I have the daddy! He was only 13 months when I bought him and she had about 20 kids out of him. He had bred 4 of her does in one day and those 4 kidded on the same day with about 16 kids! I can't wait to see what he does here! Hope I get all those pretty moonspots he can throw! He is as sweet as he is beautiful. Wild as crap when I got him, but a real little loverboy now. Just plain rotten, is what he is!
