Buck is in ( as of yesterday) and I am anxiously waiting to see what I get in 5 months!
I have 19 breeding  aged does,  so he has some work to do.  

Here are a few of the colored ones, but I think about 2/3rds of my herd is non traditional colored now.

Wow, your girls look so pretty.  And he's very interested in his sweethearts.  Your little whitish girl, looks a whole lot like the Kiko.  The horns and head are almost identical to Hanna's and Mercy's heads.  Can't wait to see what she throws down. Smiley  Happy Breeding season to you.

Her mother is solid white and if you look closely you can see she is a pale yellow color and has white spots!  It took almost a year before I was sure she had spots.  I am hoping she gives me something wildly marked, but as you well know nothing is certain.  She is a sweetheart and one of my favorites.  Always behind you begging for attention Grin

He has been breeding already, well the minute I let him in he got started Roll Eyes

It's those kinds of girls that I adore...I call them "tag alongs"....my best companions, my best buds...I love that when our goats do that.  Warms my heart.  I sure do miss my goats.  It makes my heart feel so much better to see your goats even if it's just in pictures.

What's weird Julie...I bred Roady (my avatar picture) to my tri colored Kiko Doe and my Cinnamon colored Doe, and I got one tri colored baby and one white baby when each girl had their babies.  There was no white in any of their color gene pool ancestors...yet each Doe put down a solid white baby...hahahaha.  go figure that.  Grin Grin  My two solid white Does put down caramel colored babies with black points.

I have had several solid white babies the last few years.  All 3 does that had them share a mother/ grandmother who was a solid brown with light points.  Alaways interesting how the colors come out isn't it?

I am sorry you no longer have goats.  I would miss it terribly.

I can't get your pictures to open. Grrrrr....but I'm at work and they love to block stuff. I'll have to check it out at home!

Yeah, rut is here! My 4 bucks stink to high heaven and are blathering and flapping their tongues while they pee on their beards. Ugh.

I was waiting til now to start breeding. The almanac says a horribly cold winter, extreme low temps, lots of snow and general ickiness. Because I don't know how the girls will react to my new schedule come January 1st, I am opting for waiting til it gets a tad warmer for them to kid. I had one Lamancha bred this morning, a Nigerian yesterday and another Nigerian the day before that. I should have several more come in soon, and just passed on several more that came in last week.
