KEWASKUM, Wis. – The first doe in our herd to deliver young goats this year, Dibs, is a seasoned dam with eight years or more under her belt. She was not supposed to be bred anymore because she’s old and creaky, and had troubles her previous time; she lost two of her triplets. Her body took a long time to recover. She probably recovered simply because she’s one ornery old goat; she could have been an Alpine! We kept the young bucks in her pen one day too long this past fall and she was bred. I was crossing my fingers she didn’t settle, but I guess God knew better.
