This year we were able to finish quite a few does, plus one buck. This summer we added GCH Apple and GCH Horror after the first spring shows. After the fall show loop, we added GCH Daylily, SGCH Sash, GCH Odia (Euodias), GCH Buttons, CH Mary (who will earn her G, but not quite yet… Continue reading New Permanent Champions
This year we were able to add three new bucks to our line-up. The first came after friends who knew I was looking for something out of the Loughlin’s herd, and when this guy was posted as being available, helpfully sent me screenshots so I could see. Rah hasn’t been very interested in breeding this… Continue reading New bucks added this year
We just found out that Zorro tests positive for the B allele, and he has been used on almost all the February kids from last year, so half of his kids should have that allele, which is useful for those with dairies.
We are excited to welcome to our herd Springfield-Oaks CG Zorro Faro, who is all black with a white star on his poll. I have been waiting for him for over ten years, having put a deposit down after seeing Betty Henning’s beautiful doe, Montana, and finding out that she was a color carrier. Betty… Continue reading New Junior Herdsire!
After a successful kidding day with 46 kids born to 21 does, we have many available for sale. Saanen- a polled buckling out of Fern and ++*B Nu-Tog-A-Saan Leapold , and then Sable- a bay buckling out of GCH Dream, two bay does out of Dottie, a doe out of Cascara, two bucks, one silver and… Continue reading Kids now available
While our Alpine herd is small, it is now even smaller, as SGCH Waiilatpu SDM Sassafras died this afternoon from complications with mastitis. She was a lovely, hard working doe, and we still have 2 grade daughters, Stevia and Sassarolla, and full Alpine daughter, Sassaby, who will be freshening in May this year.
In a stunning turn of events, after mailing the blood samples for pregnancy determination on Cascara, Carillon and Rebekah, Reba came back in heat the next morning and I could have shot her quite cheerfully. On Tuesday night, we got the results for Cara and Cari- both are bred! Cara only freshens every other year… Continue reading Happy results
We just found out that Trill has earned her SG! Both of her parents are SG as well. Good job, girl!
In a bummer of a major sort, Faux Pas hasn’t settled any does for sure this year, so we’ve had to change breeding lineups and our kidding dates are much later than we would prefer. As of this time, only Carillon and Rebekah haven’t cycled back, but they will be getting either ultrasounded or blood… Continue reading Breeding schedule changeup
For those of you who have been here before, you will notice that the site is a bit different. Our old software was no longer supported and having problems, so we’ve switched to a new program, which should be more user friendly for all involved (at least after watching all those tutorials to figure it… Continue reading New “site”
