Yeah, we gave up on eating these goats. They have a home here pretty much forever (well...maybe not Jayne. We're gonna see what sort of improvement he gives to the Cashmeres.)...but we can NOT keep all of 'em. We need 20 for the exemption.....but I am NOT going to milk 20 goats every day. :lol: I want 1 more PB Nubian doe for the milk; the Cashmeres can be fiber/meat. :nods:

This year was "Firefly" for names - the suggestion was made to name all freezer-bound ones "Reaver". :snicker: *I* suggested "Fajita", "Cabrito", etc.....we'll see. Herself said she's not against raising broiler chickens, as long as she doesn't know who she's eating. Goats, though...they're so personable that it'll be harder.

when we had extra boys and had to send them to freezer camp we made sure we processed two at a time for that very reason - you don't know who you are eating - My sister wouldn't help with the processing until they were missing the head and skin - then she couldn't tell who was who.
Chickens *are* easier - more anonymous. With any meat animal it is easier if they are all the same color. We are still trying to decide if we will do the boers ourselves or send them in to be done.
