|Happy Kingdom Kinders California|
He is a 16 week old, 7th generation Kinder; one of a pair of twin bucklings. He came all the way from California, from Kinder breeder Debby Riddle (Riddle Family Farm - you can read her side of the story here). Like Helen and Daphne, and Randy, his being here is a providential miracle. And what a feat it has been!
|There are lots of tasty leaves to eat here.|
For a cross-country journey we figured flying would be the best route, being quickest, but finding an airline to do it and getting all the checklist boxes checked off (proper airline approved crate, veterinary health certificates, etc.) was a job of work, for which Debby gets all the credit.
|Meeting Randy, his fellow Kinder buck, for the first time|
He came in Monday evening, on United Airlines as "petsafe" live animal cargo. He took it like a trooper and never made a peep! It was a long day, however, so I was relieved to get him home and settled in.
|Pygmy buck Gruffy was curious too|
To make his adjustments I've given him Bunny as a temporary companion. Being my littlest buck, I wanted him to meet the Big Billy Boys from the opposite side of the fence. Plus, travel is stressful, as is being separated from familiar goats, people, and surroundings, so I want to keep a careful eye on our boy. Once they get to know one another, the Boys will all be together. I have to add that he is considerably more interested in the Big Boys than in bellyaching little Bunny.
|He's taken everything in stride, even pigs.|
He in interested in everything and has a very calm personality. He will go to work next year. He is a most welcome addition to the homestead.
