Sprite the Mother


After the seriously rocky start she got in motherhood. I really enjoy seeing what a good mama Sprite has become. She is still nursing her little Bear, though sometime in the next month or two he will move to the buck yard and hopefully find a new home as a buck on someone else’s farm.

    Have you ever considered wethering the little boys for pets? The small-breed kids are pretty popular with children (and more importantly, their parents. I sold every wether I had this spring.

    aaaawwwweeeee… I was just thinking of her yesterday. Had to pick up some meds for the dogs at the vet and went down back to visit her goats while I was there…give her an extra cookie for me!

    You got your wish, she turned out to be a GREAT MOM.Hope you can sell him for a wether. That sounds like a very nice prospect. :snoopy:

    I’m so happy she turned around as a mother. there’s a lot to be said for patience and perseverance. way to go Suzanne.

    Even though I believe my grandma was right when she said “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all,” I can’t help myself, I’ve got to say it: That is not Sprite’s best side.

    You did a great job getting her to accept him. I’m so glad she turned in to a great mom. I never could get my doe that rejected her baby at 1 week old to take him back so he eventually became a bottle kid. They co-exist fine but she wouldn’t nurse him anymore.
