All our Boer kids are sold...
For the first time in a couple of years we listed our Boer baby goats for sale. The ad went out on Sunday afternoon and by Tuesday ALL our babies were spoken for!! And we are still getting emails and calls from people wanting goatie babies. What a great problem to have! :) Be sure and put your name on our waiting list early next year if you're wanting any of our 2017 Boer kids!
We're very excited this year as we feel the little ones are going to really good homes... and to several folks that will be showing in different areas and different shows than our kids have the past few years. Exciting!!! We can't hardly wait to see how the all do!
5 kids~ 3 doelings and 2 bucklings will be going home with the John & Allison Stearman Family of Tecumseh, OK. We are all excited about their shows this year! The Stearman girls will be competing in some really different venues than our goats have in the past. Wishing them the very best in showing!
Lou and Caleb were sold to Karen Fuller of Mulberry, AR as bottle babies. Karen has raised goats in the past and is excited to be teaching her granddaughters about raising Boers. :)
All 6 of these lovely doelings will be going home with Ben Schlegal of the Farmington/Fayetteville, AR area. Ben is starting his journey into raising Boer goats and has gathered a nice, small herd already this spring. Ben has lots of past experience with animals and is planning on sharing this interest with his grandkids. :) Perhaps you'll see them at some local shows as well!
2 very nice wethers will be going home with Angelia Padusch of Claremore, OK. They will be shown by her daughter. She is a Senior this year and it may be her last year to compete. We are keeping our fingers crossed that they place well in her shows!
This stout little guy has a trip in front of him. He will be moving to Burrton, KS to be shown by Marla Klein's son in Kansas shows this year!
These 2 bucklings were sold as bottle babies and made the very long trip to Tonganoxie, KS. They are currently settling in to their new home with Craig & Dana Hayes. Dana has raised goats for some time and currently owns Roy Rogers, a nice buck that we raised. She has downsized some recently and is switching over to FB registered Boer goats. Thanks Dana & Craig for making that long drive to give these guys a great home!
Look at that face! After raising Mallory in the house for a few weeks, we were so attached we decided we just couldn't let her go. :) Mallory is here to stay and we're enjoying her BIG personality! Kristina's doeling looks so much like her sire, we just had to keep her as well~ It's really hard not to keep all of them! LOL
Ginger's wether (top) will be going home with the Troy & Sammi Bates family for their son Cope, to show this year. The 3 yearling does- Heather, Donna, and Katie will be heading back to the Benton County Fair to be shown again this year by the girls. Looking forward to seeing how well they all do again this year!
We have 1 last doe to kid. Elsa was bred late and isn't due until 4/13. So we have a nice break and have (almost) made it through a very successful kidding season. We lost only 1 kid this year and have 21 healthy, happy Boer babies on the ground. All their dams are doing very well and we're breathing a sigh of relief. Everyone is healthy and happy that Spring is just around the corner...
The Murray Greys are due to start calving the end of February. Tatiana, Lana, and Hope are looking like they are starting to spring some. Can't wait to have more MG babies soon! But that's another post. :)
After an unusually mild winter (knock on wood), the grass is starting to take on a green tint, we're on the lookout for Purple Martins to return, and I'm starting to get the "itch" to garden. Spring is almost here!
Russell Ranch is located in beautiful NE Oklahoma, just a few miles from the Illinois river in Green Country. There are lovely rolling hills, lots of wonderful lakes and rivers, and forests full of wildlife.
