We have updated our sales pages and I will attempt here to clarify any confusion concerning wethers and mother/daughter pairs.
We have found that babies do better when going to homes in bonded pairs. It makes for a healthier start for them in their new homes. So with that in mind we have matched up the six bucklings into pairs based on personality and ages. We will not be splitting up any of the pairs, but you are welcome to purchase more than one pair.
As for the mother/daughter pairs. Jasmine and her daughter Caramel Apple can be sold at any time as a pair or can be purchased separately after weaning. Our preference of course is for them to be together. Jasmine is very people oriented and has a fantastic pedigree.
Dahlia produced quads as a first freshener and her doe kids although healthy are quite tiny. But don't let their diminutive size fool you, they are full of energy. If would be ideal if they were purchased with their dam and had the benefit of nursing until at least October if possible. If they don't go with their dam, then we would at least like them to go together. Special discount available to facilitate the best situation for them. Dahlia is a very sweet laid back doe, who is very patient with her kids. As low goat in our herd she gets picked on a lot and we feel she would be better off in a smaller herd or as the queen of her own tribe.
Wethers $150 per pair
Doe kids & first freshening adult does $300 each

I had intended to post this earlier but we were struggling to come up with a name that fit Tanya's second doe kid. The children picked desserts/sweets as the name theme for this year and we just couldn't come up with anything that fit her. So I took to calling her my "cow-girly". Finally in desperation we solicited names from friends on Facebook and the name suggestion "Mocha Moolatte" came up. We don't have a Dairy Queen near us so I had never heard of that particular ice cream coffee drink before. But the name fit her like a glove and also connects nicely with her sister's name which is Mocha Swirl.
For our final doe kid born this year we had a big name challenge as I have wanted to name all of Violet's daughter with names that start with a V. Add in a dessert them and our options were quite limited. Until I remembered a wonderful ice cream treat that is no longer available in the US. Viennetta suits her right down to the swirls of darker color running through her coat. And while she may not have gotten her sire's moonspots (as far as we can tell) she did get his blue-eyes.
Of these three only Mocha Swirl is going to be available for sale when weaned. Hubby has taken a fancy to Moolatte so she is staying. Swirl has very nice conformation and unlike her sister likes to strike a pose, so she may end up doing well in the show ring.
In addition to Mocha Swirl, Blackberry Tart and Caramel Apple will be available for sale when weaned. I will post more pictures when they are closer to weaning age although if you are interested shoot me a message and I will be glad to take current pictures for you.
