kidding season

Hi there. It's me, Ben, again. Our kidding season ended about a month ago. Cilantro had a set of twins to end. We had a good season, losing a set of twins due to lack of nutrition, but that's a long story.
We had 9 does and 11 bucks. We kept 2 bucks and sold the rest.  Of our girl goats, I would like to sell one. She is a pure breed Alpine. Her dad is Patton and her mom is Chocolate Star.
                                          She is about 7 weeks old.  She had a twin brother.
                                   I would like to get $50 for her. Her mom is out of Pucket's
                                                  Alpines in Kansas. Her sire is from WI                                                      This is my brother Grant holding her.  He and I take care of the goats together. My other brothers Garrett and Alex also help too. My sister sometimes helps.

Welcome to Ben's Goats. My name is Ben and I love goats. Actually, all my brothers and sister love goats, but I really love them. I feed them hay and grain everyday, no matter what!  And my goats love me.  They always run to greet me when I come into their pens.
     This is Diamond Joe. He is almost 3 years old and came from Iowa.  He is a toggenburg buck.  He lives with his friends, Firestone, Simon, Romeo, and Patton. He also has a few girl friends but he doesn't live with them right now. I have an oberhasil that I bought and my dad and mom have toggenburgs, oberhasils, and alpines. Hopefully in March, we will be having lots of kids, or baby goats. I love the babies.  All of us kids help feed them whenever we can. 
     We get to show our goats in our county fair.  When we get older,  our dad says we can show at the state 4H show and maybe the state fair.  We can't wait!
