They say that things happen in threes. In this case, it's a good thing - as a matter of fact it's fantastic! Triplets aren't unusual for a Nubian goat, but these are all females. IF I was trying to build up my herd this would be a big bonus, but I was actually hoping for twins - one female to keep and one male that we could wether (neuter) to keep as a companion for a buck we're getting this spring. So on to plan B - we'll keep one of the doelings, sell the other 2, buy the buck and a wether along with him. It's going to be a hard choice as to which one to keep though. Help me out here. Which one should I keep?

Sophie - very sweet
Marshmallow - looks like she has marshmallow on her ears.
Brownie - love the socks.
Please leave a comment below. I love hearing from you.

Congratulations on the difficult decision. I think by the time you are ready to wean them you will have a favorite, or not and you may just be stuck with them all cause they are too darn cute. Got to love those Nubian ears.

How sweet! I'm partial to the socks, but they all three are adorable! I don't think you can make a bad decision. :)

Don't know anything about goats or homesteading (doing my best to learn); but I'd say keep Sophie and Marshmallow.
I don't envy you your decision though, they are all cute!

Good luck!

P.S. Found your blog through a group we have in common. :o)
