Jasper Update

 While we were busy last weekend with goat herd maintenance and building birthing stalls, we also caught Jasper and weighed him again.  At ten months old he's finally 105 pounds!  That's not huge compared to Boers from certain blood lines, but these guys are from a commercial meat herd, not fancy show bloodlines, so I think that's a decent weight.  I was hoping he'd reach 100lbs before he turned a year old.  While weighing him I snapped some pictures for you.

 Cute face!  His nose is all covered in minerals hehe.

 Looking good.  he's growing a beard and really starting to look so grown up.

He wasn't happy about being caught and haltered, but he does eat out of our hands still.  I wish I had to time to spend taming all of them.  Too bad they don't all tame themselves like Topaz lol.

Just for comparisons sake, here are some older pictures in chronological order.

 Also below is a selfie I took with him back in January that I don't think I ever posted.  I chopped half of us out, but I still like it.


  1. He's looking pretty handsome alright! But how does he smell? ;-)

    1. Hehe, not too bad yet lol. I'm sure next fall he will reek like Rebel and Yankee. ;)


Hey, thanks for visiting! We would love to hear from you so please leave a comment.
