|They're always cautious at first.|
|It's as if they don't remember having been here before.|
|Eventually they eat their way down the length of the area.|
|The ducks in the pool get a close look.|
|Reached the kudzu at last. Kudzu is a nitrogen fixer, so I suppose it isn't all|
bad. The goats love it and its a good source of B vitamins, calcium, & iron.
|The electric netting works pretty well, although |
it's a bit of a bother to set up, plus it sags.
|You can see the east paddock in the background on the right. The netting|
ends at the fence with the charger/battery is set out in the sun in the field.
Actually, I haven't featured my girls in a post for awhile, so here they are. For anyone just passing through, they are Kinders.
And my little girls who are getting so big that I can't always tell them apart from the adults from a distance.
|Well, except April here who is my only all-black doe.|
April will be six months old on October 1st.
|Anna - 5 and 1/2 months old|
|Daisy will be 5 months old on October 5.|
Kinders are considered aseasonal breeders, meaning they can breed any time of the year. However, their strongest heats are in the fall, so that's when most Kinder owners breed for spring kids. This fall I plan to breed my three adult does and wait until next year to breed the younger girls. I want to start alternating my breedings so I can have milk year around.
