Interestingly enough, the black doe (Wallie) put in with Jared is a yearling. I didn't breed Aerin this year because I thought she was too small, but she's basically the same size as Wallie. So either I'm paranoid or Wallie's owner is making a mistake. According to most of what I've read, angora does should not be put to breed until they are 60 lbs or 2 years old, whichever comes first.
Wallie is, unfortunately, in with the five girls and Jared, so she is getting picked on constantly by the other does. I may end up relocating her and Jared to the back center field just so that she can get some food and TLC. In the meantime, I'm trying to feed Wallie with Summer -- separate from the other does and Jared -- when I feed them in the mornings.
Frankie is a "blue" goat, two years old, and had a red kid last year. The ability to throw red is why she is in with Loki and not Jared. Frankie and Loki are by themselves, and are getting along fabulously already. Also, amusingly, Frankie has a big stick duct-taped across her horns to stop her from stuffing her head through the fence. We did this to Nylan earlier in the summer, and it cured him of even getting near the fences.
Note -- "blue" is the label being applied to goats which are mostly white with black edges. Mica qualifies as a "blue" goat. (Photo is from June, 2005 when she was about 3 months old.)
