Cute As A Button
A little over a month ago I went out to Poppy Patch farm to look at a goat that I thought I might be interested in buying. We just didn't click that doe and I but a darling tiny doe named Cute as a Button wouldn't leave me alone. As I looked at the goats she was always right there wanting me to scratch her head. Well needless to say I fell in love with this little goat. I made it quite clear she was the one I wanted. She wasn't for sale. I pestered and begged but it got me nowhere so I left with an empty crate and a promise that if she was ever for sale I would get first chance.
The chance came. On the last day of the fair she was offered to me and I jumped at the chance. I'm not that surprised because I knew she was meant to be mine.
She is very small, very friendly, has a beautiful first freshening udder, and has a lovely pedigree. She will come bred to the buck of my choice so I chose a buck named Rebel that puts gorgeous udders on his daughters. Since she will be bred first I won't pick her up until December because kids in May fit my schedule.
She had two lovely kids this year that were bought by someone in New Hampshire.
Pretty as a Peach
Solid as a Rock
I am excited to add Buttons to my herd of miniature dairy goats.
