Goat Thinning

Today was the day to sort the goats, sell the kids and culls.
The no name yet puppies are growing fast.  They mostly hang around the billy goat they came with or E's bottle goats that like to stay near the barn.
It is always difficult to decide which ones to sell.  I hated to let the appaloosa go because she is so recognizable.  However, I was afraid after the c-section she might have trouble again.  We sold 30 in all, just didn't have the numbers this year.  We lost so many to coyotes and parasites.  The wet weather was good for the grass but it also is good for worms too.
We kept 42 nannies.  Maybe we'll have better luck next year.
