Seen it dozens of times before so not really bothered other than I wanted to be with her as it's her first kidding and to make sure all went well which it did in any case. I've been keeping goats for about 25 years now.congrats Fenwoman xx
just a shame that you missed the birthing process
Do you slaughter the males your self or do you get somebody else in?Seen it dozens of times before so not really bothered other than I wanted to be with her as it's her first kidding and to make sure all went well which it did in any case. I've been keeping goats for about 25 years now.
i suppose that if you rear your own food to eat then you know exactly what it has been raised on, that its had a good life and so on. I didnt know that you can raise your own animals to be consumed but need to send them away to be slaughteredi believe they go to an abbatior.. there are all sorts of rules and regs about killing at home these days.. my meat chickens for instance.. as i kill them at home myself, i am not even allowed to give them away to people for human consumption.. they can "buy" one for their dogs to eat.. but not for themselves..
pam - if i come up with a tin of purple spray.. can i mark my "section" on him *grins* i've never, to my knowledge, eaten goat before, so as much as he is cute.. i will also have a certain sadistic pleasure in watching him grow..
