Little Stud Buck in the Big City

Snowflake’s biological clock is ticking and it may already have tocked it’s last tock, at least for this year’s kidding season. Typically, goats cycle between September and February, but sometimes, the heats continue into the spring.

If Snowflake isn’t pregnant, I won’t be able to breed her until September (due to the fact that goats only go into heat between September and February) and I won’t get milk or gorgeous kids until January or February of 2011. I don’t … Continue reading
