New Boer Goats

My neighbor and I went to a livestock auction to look at Boer goats. He has three and wants to expand his herd with some billy goats. Even in this heat it as a full house of sellers and buyers for sheep and goats. He got to bid for what he was looking for. He bought two billy goats, a wither (gelded male) and two older does. The billy are adding a lot of entertainment to the herd dynamic. With the billy goats in the herd means the does should give birth around Easter time. Boer goats are a hardy breed that can thrive in drought conditions we are having here. And they can eat just about anything and live off that.
