Spots

22 Mar

Mary has twins this year.  One looks like a lot of my white goats with the light spots.  That comes from my long-ago buck Grover.  Several of my adults still have those markings.

Did you notice his sister?  She has those characteristic markings of her mom and Bonnie and Blaze and Gidget.  Those amazing silver spots will probably fade into tan to look like her mom’s spots.

They are all descended from Kizzy.  She’s the only one that got these amazing spots from Grover instead of the normal big tan patches on white.  I think Zeus might be a good buck for thowing spots.  After all, he is another one descended from Kizzy.  This is one of his kids below.

She belongs to Annie.

Her brother you can barely see below, but he got his mom’s black and white.

But he’s worth looking at from every angle because he also got spots from Zeus.

I don’t know if the silver spots will fade or stay silver.

He’s certainly quite the interesting kid.  I’m thinking I might have to keep Zeus for another year and see if these two can give me a girl with these colors and spots.
