I have a hard time making decisions sometimes. I can drive myself crazy. So the decision of whether or not to keep either Zipper or Notty's Boy as bucks was weighing on my mind. They are both beautiful and have wonderful pedigrees so it would be understandable if I should decide to leave them as a buck and not wether them. I made a list of all my does that I could use them each on and Zipper came out with the most. Zipper is the last son of a very nice buck. He is very pretty and correct.
But is also the sweetest, friendliest baby here. He crawls in your lap and dances on your head. He will stand forever just to get a good scratch and when you stop he taps you with his foot. This little guy needs to be petted. So with that I decided that I would like him to be someone' pet. A child's pet. Wear a collar and carry a little pack with a juice box and goldfish crackers.
Notty's boy is a super model. He is an eyeful, that one.
More reserved than Zipper, he is sweet and thoughtful. One could understand why I thought long and hard about keeping this one too. But...he is also Zipper's best friend and the thought of them going together was very appealing.
So Zipper and Boy are going to live with a very nice family with three kids of the human kind. They will teach this family the joy of living with goats. They will make this family laugh with their silly boy antics. They will crawl into their laps and snuggle in...or dance on their heads.
And hopefully carry a juice box or two.
