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.

Good-byes

8 Aug

The last of my original Saanen girls, Minnie Pearl, joined her sisters today.

I miss you all.

Minnie, Millie, Meg, Maddie, Cutie

I also lost Kizzy today.  She was a beautiful Valentine’s Day baby, born when it was -6*F (-21.1*C).

She is the one who gave me all the beautiful spots.

I miss you all.  Every day.

Bad Boys, Bad Boys,

9 Jul

Whatcha gonna do?  I’m selling them!  It’s time for my February and March boys to leave the farm.

Andy and Ghost

They are big and bad.  They are fighting.  I was a bit worried when I saw Spot with blood on his face, until I realized it not his.

Then I found whose blood it was.  Rudy…

Norm injured his stifle; although not near as badly as Caroline.  Like we needed another injury.

Norm and Cinnamon

Even worse, we had a cold snap a couple weeks ago that seems to have brought my girls into heat.

Andy and Zinnia

That means I’m going to have to give a lot of girls shots to make sure I don’t have really young girls and really old girls and any other girl having kids in November.

Hercules and Kizzy

I had to lock Kizzy in with Minnie and Helen because she had four boys chasing her relentlessly.

Stinking bucks!

Hercules and Andy

Luckily, my neighbor came and hauled them to the sale barn for me.

Nineteen Feb./Mar. kids

While they were going, I sent all my Feb. and March babies that I’m not keeping (or have potential homes for).

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.
