Hello all! Sorry I haven't been online as often as I'd like. We have been super busy preparing for the upcoming kidding season.

Good news is we had our very first baby arrive today! We have 20 more dues due from March through June - 15 ABGA Fullblood Boers, 2 ABGA Percentage Boers, 2 ADGA Purebred Nubians, and 1 PI Fullblood Savanna doe.

All of these does have been crossed with three of our ABGA fullblood boer bucks - Zhaitan and his two February 2020 sons.

We also have one doe we purchased at a sale last year who is bred to one of my favorite black dappled bucks in the industry. Cannot wait to see those kids! Really hoping to get a killer buck, so we don't have to buy a new one this year to cross with our Zhaitan daughters.

Here's Zhaitan who will be siring the majority of kids this year:

Here are two of Zhaitan's sons at 7 months old that were bred to two does each:

Last but not least, here is Zhaitan's new baby boy that arrived Wednesday the 10th! His dam, Roan, is an ABGA 88% boer/savanna cross. I was really hoping for a blue roaned doeling but maybe next year! This guys is just too cute.

Wow! Very nice! Good luck with the rest of your kidding!
Thank you so much!

Hey there! So glad to see you back! Boys are looking Fantastic! As usual! Love that buckling. Hes a cutey! But I am dosapointed...wheres all the prego pictures of your beautiful does? Ive slways loved looking at your beautiful herd!
Thank you! I love looking at your pictures too! I am hoping to share some ASAP. I only have fridays and weekends to take pictures now, and no one wants to cooperate when I'm ready lol. We will be moving the does around tomorrow, so I should be able to get some!

16 does to kid - phew!

Did you know this guy was due earlier than the rest?
Luckily, yes! Not a single doe decided to take until October except for Roan. I'm glad I had an accurate cover date for her.

We originally had 6 put with Zhaitan in August, and another 8 in October. We really wanted to stagger them like previous years, but that did not happen at all lol. Now 12 of the 14 are due in March altogether! Luckily, the last 5 stuck to our schedule and will kid in May/June.

Thank you so much! I knew you'd love to see them!

Saucy is one of my favorite does for so many reasons. She was one of the fastest growing kids of 2018 with nice length, top, and head set. Plus, we no longer have her sire Wasted, and he was such an amazing boy. She's the only daughter we have of his.

Her dam gave us one of my favorite Zhaitan daughters last year, so I'm excited to see Saucy crossed with Z, too. I hope I don't jinx myself.

This is Saucy's half-sister, Stella, sired by Zhaitan. Pictured a couple days ago at 8 months. Nothing fancy, just dirty and fluffy lol.

Ok. Now I understand. I honestly prefer my goats in their work/ regular clothes. Slicked up...to me attempts to hide flaws.
Looking at Stella & Saucy...built the same . Looks wide long & deep. Love their faces..they appear intelligent and feminine. Both girls have so much to offer.
So are you wanting the red pattern the same as Zs black? I cant wait to see her wee ones. So exciting! And your Savannah x with Z? Ohhhhh my. Youve got me in suspence. .......

I'd prefer to get all blacks! Black paints, black dapples, black spotted paints, etc I love them all!
