I dont know if this will work for you, but, I live in SoCal in the high desert. I put up misters on the fence and and for the barn, I put up an old swamp cooler. But we have dry heat.

Oh my phone hates me trying to reply to you! I have tried 2X now and it takes it away!
Usually we have a dry heat too, I'm in the hills, not quite the mountains but we did get a thunder storm last night so even my does are suffering today. With the so called barn I'm planning on making Its going to be those tarp car ports, and I'm going to make it so I can put up and remove the stalls as needed and throw a shade cloth on during the summer so it would be super easy to put misters up! Hang on I have more to say but better send

I also find though that me and heat are just no longer friends. I'm selling kids right now and it's killing me gathering them up. The more I think about it I think winter is the way to go just gotta figure out a way to set up a futon and a heat blanket for myself lol

I was gonna say I know you don't like cold at all so I was wondering how you would do with winter babies. The only other option I have is keep breeding at the same time you do but take the bucks out at a certain time and whoever doesn't get bred waits till the next year or is culled. Winter babies might be too big by fair time and might not sell as well if that's the market your after. Just some things to think about. I wish I could have spring kids because I had 3 does kid in May a few years ago and it was awesome but they were too small for 4-H and I had a horrible time selling them.

If I could do it it would be fall kids! I loved the year I had fall kids. They grew great and sold great because not to many people have fall kids. The only way I got those though was by breeding them right back and I won't do that any more. Right now I'm thinking February kids. That would been after January which is the coldest month and sell in may which is warm but not bake you to death.
The fairs around here, the three closest is first of April, first of September and October, oh! There's another one the second week of September. My son can only show at the April and first part of September one. I honestly don't care about selling show wethers. Actually after today I'm about ready to do sale yard sells lol but that's a whole other story. Back on track even then for those other fairs they are looking for kids born in January. I'll sell show wethers but I won't go out of my way to do it. I figure disbud and if someone calls me great if not butcher boys
