I have 2 fainters. My wether Cotton and Clover, doe.
My buck is a registered Nigerian Dwarf, tri-colored with blue eyes.
The baby is half ND and half fainter. Not sure if she will show any signs of myotona as it takes 2 fainters for the babies to show it.

Named the baby Dottie. She is so soft with wavy coat. The lady I bought my fainters from in El Campo had a mix of regular coat fainters and silkie fainters. So the baby could have a bit of the silkie gene in there.

And where are the pics of your goats, Luvs???

My niece was sent home from the hospital on bed rest, no baby yet.

My 5 Star saddle pad arrived yesterday, looking forward to trying it tonight! Another great deal, just like my barely used saddle! Someone bought two, in different thicknesses, and after a few rides decided which one she wanted to keep. So I got a nearly-new butterfly cut pad at a discount, plus she'd had 5 Star cut it 31" long instead of their standard 32" which should be perfect for my little Cash.

Yeah my friend just asked me where is the baby goat pic? Guess I need to get the camera out when I get home.

I think almost everybody has moved to Facebook, but there's still some of us on here!

I got some exciting news recently. I put a deposit on a puppy a few weeks ago (though I got on the waiting list almost a year ago). And even though the mom had less puppies than planned, I'm getting my puppy! So now I will have my dream dog I've been wanting for years. I could not be any happier right now!

Very exciting, what kind of puppy??

LOVE my new saddle pad. Insane how much closer my legs felt to my horse with a close contact/butterfly cut pad under the saddle! Cash was even aware of something different, and it was cute watching his reaction when I first mounted. Did remind me just how narrow my boy is, though, lol.

After a year of scoffing at anything offered by hand, Cash has decided treats are, in fact, good. Carrots, peppermints, and peppermint horse treats have been well received.

Congrats sully! New puppies are very exciting and cute:)

Sounds like a good thing cyn. I bought a billy cook wool pad tgat is very thick and great for her wither and top line issue. Also got her on some Purina supplements and she is filling in at her withers pretty good. Hopefully I can go back to using a normal pad soon.

Happy Thursday everyone!

It will be my first purebred registered dog, all the others have just been strays or unwanted dogs I've taken in. It's a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, it's a hunting dog and the only breed known for doing everything. I will be driving to Oklahoma from NW Houston to pick up the dog, it's going to be a long drive, but totally worth it. They're quite hard to find, and this is closest breeder to me (luckily they turned out to be a great breeder). I've wanted one ever since I found out about them, so I finally decided to go ahead and do it.

It was funny though because I knew around what time I wanted the puppy (I wanted a Spring 2014 litter) so I starting finding a breeder a year ago. I thought I was early, but for some breeders there was already a waiting list of 20+ for a Spring 2014 litter! I got lucky finding the breeder I did, and the only reason I was able to get relatively low on the list (I was 6 on the list) was because they hadn't even announced the litter yet. It all worked out for the best with this breeder though :).

Well interesting night at the barn. Went out brought 6 horses in out of the pasture with no problem. Fes everyone theor grain the was cleaning up a little. Happened to look back ti the pasture to see a black and white calf! Evidently tge bull that was out there last year got to the young heifer before he was sold. The bo was shocked because he didn't think the heifer was old enough. We've been checking the longhorn cow fir bags, just in case but never thought to check the heifer!
My friend and I saddled up and rode out to go see the little one but didn't get close enough to tell if it was a bull or cow. Whatever it is, it was having a good time playing and jumping around. Sooooo cute!
My gaited boy did so good yet again today on our ride:)

How cute, KC!

I am so ready for this work week to be over! Crazy busy. I'm totally exhausted. Tucked Colton into bed at 8pm last night and I was asleep the second I hit my pillow, about ten minutes later.
