We hadn’t planned on buying Blueberry when we drove to Royal Highlands’ Farm in April 2014 to pick up her dam Cherry. Blueberry had just kidded with triplets that morning, but Diana Probert asked, “Were you planning on taking Cherry back all alone?” Well, as any good goat person knows, there’s always room for one more, and Sam had cash burning a hole in his pocket!  Blueberry had been mentioned in an earlier email as a doe possibly under consideration for sale later, and we got a good look at her in the barn, so when it came time to load up we asked if we could take her home too. We haven’t regretted it, because she is a sweet-tempered doe that is a dream to milk. She has  a nice level floor and good front and side attachments, though her rear attachment could be stronger. She gave us twin bucks in an easy 2015 kidding. She was regretfully sold, since we can only keep a limited number of animals, but we wish her new owner the very best. Blueberry will be missed!
