We'd like to introduce the newest member of the Iron Oak Farm family. Meet Timber our new buckling and Nubian herd sire. After many phone calls and a 4 1/2 hour drive round trip we decided he was the goat for us. He is an ADGA registered pure bred Nubain.
His family called him Noah, which is a name we love...so much that Zach and I have sort of put it aside as a possibility in case we have a human child. So we changed his name to Timber.
He was born in March which means he should be old enough to impregnate the girls this fall. Which will make for an exciting spring in 2015!
He's been a little shy, and clings to us whenever we're near him. I took him for a walk today back to the property and that seemed to give him some confidence. We'll have to be gentle with him and ease him into the herd and his new surroundings.
Everyone is curious and the girls are eager to meet their new friend, but we're practicing a little quarantine before he meets the herd full on.
