We doubled our number of ladies in one foul swoop this week, purchasing 16 doelings (young girls who have not had kids yet) from the Cockerham herd near Lancaster.
They have a large herd there, and have been going 17 years, so none of these girls arrive with names. They also haven't been handled any more than necessary so, unlike most of our current herd, these girls are nervous and skitty. We'll soon change that!
Here are the new arrivals, with a handful of names that we have assigned so far.
