This year we decided to add to our little herd.  My husband has been wanting for a long time, some meat goats. I wasn't really all that enthused, especially not if it meant Boers, because I'm not fond of Boers.
I did not want Fainters (I know, I'm sounding hard to please aren't I???) 
and I wanted to make sure they came from tested herds.  
For the past 3 years I've been trimming hooves for Serena Kinders in Tome 
and decided, If I'm adding a meat goat - a Kinder it will be

So we bought a lovely doe named Cleopatra (Cleo for short) bred to Top Gun (aka Gunner) 
to begin our own little meat herd.  
Cleo and Gunner gave us 3 lovely kids - 2 bucks, and 1 doe.  
So we have (in picture order) Whopper, Junior, and last but not least, 
Bella who hubby is keeping.  

For those of you not familiar with Kinders, they are a cross between Nubians and Pygmy's (yes, really!!) 
for a nice, easy to keep, dual purpose goat.  They have rich creamy high butterfat milk.
It's pretty exciting to see what God will do with this new adventure.  I think we got in at an opportune 
time as apparently the interest in Kinders are growing and we have it on good authority we 
bought from one of the BEST herds in America!!!

I forgot about this cute little guy - This is Camellia and Gizmos brother, Buckingham. 
He's going to go up to Farmington area of NM.  He will be going with another 
local wether, Pan.  So exciting to know they are all going to such good homes!
What a blessing!!!!

More baby updates!  This little cutie pie went to a elderly daycare center with another tiny doe 
They are now treasured pets and he has a new name - Gizmo!!!!  SO CUTE!  
I"m glad this little guy got to have such a neat home where he will be loved on 
all day long!!!!

Zane and Zach, Dickory's two remaining boys will be leaving the 18th for their new 
home in Clovis NM.  Their new family is very excited to get them and I'm thrilled 
that the boys are going to such a great home as well!!!  

This is my new little buck - Lazy R Ranch Kosuke!  I love this little boy more and more every day. 
He's so long and wide.  I cannot wait to shave him and see what's under there but I love him fuzzy so not sure that will happen any time soon.  We are waiting for him to start acting bucky - but for now he's keeping all the other babies company!  At least when everyone leaves, he will still have the Kinder kids to keep him company.
