Our second buckling, Wil, is a perfect addition to the farm!
Since our first little buck, Prince, is related to our two smallest does (Amberle and Eretria), we needed another small little buck with whom we could eventually breed our little does. Along came Wil, who is an adorable Nigerian Dwarf X Pygmy buckling. He was the largest of triplets, weighing in at 3.2 pounds when he was born. Wil is black and white, with an adorable little face. He immediately took to Prince, and the two have been the best of friends ever since we brought him home!
Will joined our farm on June 6, 2016. He is an unregistered Nigerian Dwarf X Pygmy. Will is polled, and has beautiful blue eyes.
Wil’s dam is Coco, a pretty little Nigerian Dwarf X Pygmy goat. His sire is a registered Nigerian Dwarf goat named Romeo, who is also black and white and polled, with blue eyes.
Wil is named after the character Wil Ohmsford, from the Shannara series of books by Terry Brooks, which is also where Amberle and Eretria’s names came from!
