Pebbles Baby

IMG_0252

Pebbles is a first generation Mini-Alpine, a mix between a Nigerian Dwarf and an Alpine goat. She was brought in to increase the milk production without increasing the size of the animals in the herd or their feed requirements. This is Pebbles little buck.

Pebbles has a lot of color and her buck is white with subtle orange highlights.

Here are two of Gidgets boys, Huck and Finn, facing off. They are almost 4 weeks old any yet Pebbles buck is the same size. It may be because Gidget had quads and Pebbles had a single.

    Wait, wait, do I see dry ground? No more snow??? No ice? Is it finally over?
    I can imagine the kids and lambs to bring a lot of life to the farm – and work, too!

      Lynn – Finally. The buckets were still frozen overnight for Mothers Day morning but at least we can have the outside faucets on. Everyone loves to go out and sit in with the goats and sheet to watch the little ones bounce around.
