The boys are back in town

We brought home the little bucks.
Joe with a little Cream

Dill's Little "Joe" Cartwright

 and Dill's XM Merlin aka Cream
(we're sticking with the coffee theme)
They are beautiful buck kids and boy do they come from good milking lines!  I am super excited about these guys.

While at my breeder's dairy, there was a kidding.  It was a difficult one.  I put on the gloves too and got to feel the baby before it was born.  What an experience!
Then it was on to watch disbudding, shots, tatooing, and worming.  I even got to try my hands at milking, managing to only get a few squirts into the pail and the rest all over the room. 
It was like a morning of dairy goat boot camp.I loved it!
