We have a broad selection of goats. Here is Anakin, a two year old Alpine wether. We bought him at the auction-the runt of a lot of about twenty alpine baby bucklings. And I mean the runt. He was half as big as any of the other babies. He is still tiny.`To this day he is a bit neurotic about food, dashing from fresh hay pile to hay pile, grabbing mouthfuls.

Unlike this guy, Nicholas. He is the same age as Anakin and gets the same amount of grain, a pint of caprine challenger or sweet goat once a day in addition to browse and hay. He is a cashmere producer, bred for fiber and meat. Nic bellies up to the biggest hay pile and eats.And eats. And eats.
