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!!!
