Walkies! The girls and I went out for a walk to browse on saplings - I never did taste any but they sure did. The snow rubble is still left in the background, but the girls loved running, jumping, and browsing on goodies. One of the things that's the most fun is running........they start a good browse and I take off in the other direction. There must be a boogie man in the browse spot so they come running after me and pass me by, stopping suddenly to wait for me to catch up. Then I stop and run the opposite direction and off they go, running full speed towards me bucking and jumping. It's hysterical, and we have lots of fun. I'm looking forward to green grass again tho!

The new guy arrives April 16th

The new guy arrives April 16th. Much anticipation has surrounded this buck kid as I waited to see if his beautiful dam would produce at least 2 buck kids to fill her waiting list. She did along with a beautiful doe kid, so all reservations were filled! He's what I call an 'udder buck' - one who will contribute towards high milk production. It doesn't hurt that his dam has already appraised a 90 as a 2 year old and a 91 as a 3 year old either - I like pretty too!

Here's his impressive pedigree - lots of milk no doubt....

Zasia's brown doe kid is for sale, I think.... SOLD!

This has been a VERY hard decision! Zasia's brown doe kid is gorgeous.........she's long, beautiful, elegant. If she has her mother's udder socked up so high and wide, she will be stunning when she grows up. I can't keep them all, so either Zasia will be for sale (almost straight Goldthwaite bloodlines), or her brown daughter will be for sale. Zasia is a treasure on the milkstand - never a problem - and is extremely sweet and very affectionate. She's the kind of doe you want around, so this is a very hard decision, but I have to keep my numbers down. I have Zasia's littermate brother here, Blue, who has been bred to Sunshine for late summer freshening. Sunshine will be for sale after kidding. So I will have plenty of Zasia's genetics to continue forward with.

Contact me if you'd like to add one of our girls to your herd.
