so does this come from the dam or sire or both? can it skip a lot of generations? I know of someone whos doe had twins, doeling and buckling. buckling was cryptochid.

dams side for the last four generations never had one but the dams sire did "produce" a few kids with teat spurs in his career(this does sibling produced two kids with teat spurs). the sire is young and this is his first year. his dam is also a first fresher but his sire never produced any faults neither did his dams dam. i havent found out about the next generations.

curious if this is related to teat issues?

Can be from either parent or both. Not sure if that could be related to the teat issue or not but both are faults and I would not get kids from either parent.

Both of the faults, split teat and cryptorchidism are influenced by genetics somewhere in the gene pool. Just because a particular animal is not showing physical signs, if these traits are known to be in earlier generations, there are chances it will continue to reoccur throughout that bloodline.
