We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

Welcome to the World: Boudan

March had her buckling late yesterday afternoon. So we are calling him Boudan to go along with the Cajun Creole theme.  He has blue eyes like his mum but, his eyes will change to high yellow gold in about a month. He is large and sassy already.  As a matter of fact all our kids this year are larger.  Guess they will all be huge bucks and large doe. 

24 hr Kid Count: 1 Doeling Lady Walver, 3 Bucklings Roux, Bercer, and Boudan.
We have to stop at Tractor Supply today and pick up banding pliers for castration. Only Boudan will remain intact. That way if the decision is made to sell them as meat goats; they will be a viable source of income.
 So while waiting around yesterday while March was trying to kid.  The boys and I put some seeds in cups for the garden.  As you can tell, Banjo wanted to help.
We planted over 25 varieties of seeds to include at least two types of: beans, melons, and of course tomatoes.

Cubby even took some seeds and planted them in a secret boy place.  Last year when he did that; we wound up with some suprise maze.
Don't forget to play in your slices of heaven, today!

we don't have meat goats, just dairy goats. I was curious if you ate goat meat, if so, how you prepared it.

Thanks Barb, I think so too. He will not be wethered.

Thanks Sharon, He is a 'big' little feller. LOL

Janet, Couldn't ya just kiss those fuzzy lips?

Joanna, I will put goat me in the crock pot and slow cook it. I haven't had kid in a long time though and will have to consult a game cookbook for the right seasonings.

Waves to Kat! What is happening my over the pond sister?

Linda said...

Boudan is so cute and so HUGE! Well, huge compared to my tiny little kids!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. From what I understand the African goats (including Nigerian, Pygmy, & Boer) taste better than other types of goat. I don't know that, it is just what I *think* I have read someplace...

Nekkid Chicken said...

Thanks Linda, All of the kids this year are large. Roux is the smallest of the four.
