Not enough land to be a proper farmer NCOTB :lol:

These are three year old and eighteen months. One boy will be either rehomed or in the freezer but the girls will be for milk.

Very nice :grin: - always fancied goats but think I'll stick to sheep for now.
Chris

love me, love my 4 dogs, 3 cats, over 100 chickens (but don't tell OH) and 7 sheep - oops, almost forgot the 2 tanks of fish!

I live in my own little world but it's ok - they know me here!
