    Yeah, I know!! I can't wait to see how Pixie does this year. She was small last year so I am hoping this year she will be the right size. And I also want to show the buck that I am getting from Jen in the Spring!!

    Well, Jen said that it will depend on if she gets a reservation on this one or not.. but I REALLY want one out of Sand-Bur-Kids Destiny of Hope X Saada M' Lord Eragon. Destiny is soooo gorgeous!! And Eragon's grand dam is one of my favorite does.

    yea, destiny is a laid back girl. Personally i like Sombrita and aphrodite better. But everyone likes something different. And you should go for what you like. Thats what i have done over the years and it seems to be working well for my breeding program.

    Well, lol I have never personally seen them.. haha.. so I have to judge them by photos :). You have first hand experience.
    I guess what wowed me most was that udder!!!! Jen told me about how it still looks like that. I found that amazing :).
    But seriously, I would take a buck out of any one of her does. I think they are all gorgeous!

    Yea, I have only seen destiny dry. She was dried off shortly after kidding. She is definalty starting to show her age though, I think she had a little harder time coming back after kidding this year and is really down on her pasturns. But for eleven she is holding up well. Jen has a really pretty little buck kid named pyro out of her. One of my favorite colors he is a solid red with solid ears. Really flashy little guy.

    Yep I have to shave 'em! They hate it at first but after a while they get used to it. I handle my lambs a lot more than the other lamb showers so mine are usually the best behaved! LOL. If you want I'll post pics of the first show.

    Yes, please do post pics!!!! Yay! That is so cool. Yeah, the sheep at our fair our always pretty badly behaved. And I am always shocked at how rudely their owners seem to treat them. They slap them around and stuff and treat them like they are junk almost. They aren't spoiled babies like my goats.

    That's how most of the people around here are too, but I tend to baby all of mine (makes it harder to let them go) but I say that I'm giving them the best life possible before they get sold to the market so I want them to be happy. It's also a plus that they are easier to handle! :wink:
