Babies

These babies don’t have time to stand posed nor do I have patient enough helpers to make them stand nicely so candid is what cha get =).

Toddy’s 1st born boy above (C1). You talk about flashy and fancy! He’s got it all, brown, black, white, roaning, splashes, frosting, splotches, AND spots!!! His sire is Andy our spotted buck and boy did he throw fabulous heads in Toddy’s 2 boys, strong muzzles and those nice Nubian noses!  See those 2 splotches on his hind end? Those will lighten so he’s just all sorts of colorful!

Apricot’s 3rd born (c5), “Dale” short for Clydesdale! He’s a brute of a boy weighing in at nearly 12 lbs. at birth (and his sisters were good size too!) and with his fuzzy huge feet, Clydesdale was only fitting, we thought. Wow, this boy…he’s just handsome! He looks like he’s going to be one powerful buck & LOOK at his neck!  He’s a little squished up in this photo but he’s quite long too and a real nice top line! Just a real nice kid and with his mama’s udder, or dearly me! Moon has been so consistent with his level top lines!

Kid Photos

I’m real happy with this year’s kid crop. I got more power this year and less dairy-ness than last. I can’t help it, I like the dairy look but that can go a bit too far for sure. Got lots of nice rumps and top lines and wide escutcheons, some great leg sets and heads too!

Breeding Granite to Price (by her choice, she wouldn’t let the other two near her) made for some HUGE kids…big bones and wide! Man, they are just tanks. I was really happy with her breeding last year (that gave me Mea and Andy.) Mea’s more refined, smoother blended than Granite, not as nice of a top line but nicer overall I think. I wanted to breed her to Moon who was of the same lines as the Mea and Andy breeding but she wouldn’t have it. Getting buck kids from the Granite x Prince breeding was great. I wouldn’t be too impressed if does came out like they did- too masculine-but who’s to say they would? I’m just as happy they’re bucks…nice buck they are too!

"SPOT"
Lovely head, wide muzzle and nice roman nose. He has a nice top line too when he’s standing up straight.

I will definitely be repeating the breeding on this one! (Toddy x Moon)
Agouti
Look at how wide I am and look at my lovely ears! (Toddy buck kid “Agouti”)

We’ve got more dairiness than some of the others and look at our lovely ears! (Ariel’s doe kid “Pie” and Fleur’s doe kid “Dawn”)


Ruby Thewes
I’m one of Amanda’s favorites. My Name is Ruby Thewes. I have a great top lone and nice rear leg set. I’m not as dairy as my sister both we both have nice rumps! (Mea’s doe kid)

Ada Monroe
Because I’m so petite, I’m Rachel and Drew’s favorite! I’m Miss Ada Monroe. I’m more dairy than my sis, but even with our differences, we’re both outstanding I think! (Mea’s 2nd doe kid).

Dawn
I’m Dawn, one of Fleur’s doe kids. I think I will be long and dairy like my dam but maybe I got a bit more power from my sire. Time will tell I guess. We’ll see about my roman nose though, it doesn’t look so Nubian right now huh? My sire doesn’t have the most roman nose but sometime it can take a while. I have a lovely long neck though!
