New Goats

Then a couple nice (actually, VERY NICE is more descriptive) Alpine yearlings came up for sale at Soldier Mountain Alpines.  I was only going to buy one but ended up bringing them both home.

It will be neat to see how their udders change after they’ve kidded.  I’ll update with more pics when that happens.
