...No not another "kid".
We have wanted another Nubian buck and I had just about given up finding one in our area and had not even checked Craig's list in months. This past weekend I decided to look again and lo and behold there was a young buck listed. With crossed fingers and toes I emailed to inquire if the young buck was available. I received a very nice email back from Lynette, the Nubians owner, telling me all about him and best of all he is still available!
After exchanging several emails we decided Tuesday would be a good day for Papa Bear and I to go and fetch our new boy. I still did not have a transporter for small livestock. I've been searching for one of those too. I had just about decided to take the Marines van and secure him in the back behind the bench seat but Lynette warned me he had been in rut and was very fragrant. I was not sure if Freebreeze would get the scent out of the van. I had a dental appointment Monday so I checked several places on my way back home to see if I could find a transported but with no luck.
Invited to the Kings table . Check it out when you get the chance.
One of the little Boer/Nubian does was teasing the bucks unmercifully. I told her "not yet" she should be a good breeding weight this fall.
Rudy has fit in with the rest of the gang just fine. That's Max and Freckles with him. I think they are about 6 months old.
We had a really good laugh bringing Rudy home. We stopped at a convenience store for coffee and while we were inside I could here Rudy voicing his opinion for being left alone in the back of the truck. Everyone who was inside the store was running out of the store and then I heard someone say...It's just a goat. Seems like everyone thought someone was out in the parking lot yelling "help". One lady said she didn't know if she should go outside to "help" or stay inside where it was safe! Too funny!

They are too pretty to write in...I may frame them or you are going to have to be very special to get one of these cards. They are beautiful. Thanks so much Glock Mom!
