That time of year again! The buck aroma is strong, does are googely eyed, and fences are HOT. Breeding season is in full swing!

2020 has been a crazy year. We moved the entire farm to a new location and we are still getting everything in place. It was SUCH a disappointment that all shows and Linear appraisal was canceled. All in all, I am very happy with my girls and cannot wait for shoes to come back 'round.

First up is SG Red Hot 2*M, SG Clover, Totality, Eclipse, Kit Kat, Rue, and Scarlett! These does have been bred to *B CuAtLilRedBarn Sir Charms.

Scarlett, Kit Kat & Rue. With no shows this year I never got around to pics. Ugh. They have all matured so much and are lovely dry yearlings !

Those are some pretty does, how much milk do you get from them?

Thanks all! I'm pretty excited about these girls!

That's a good question :)
I haven't weighed anybody's milk this year. Life was just too busy with the move and dealing with milking 30 does 2x/day. After that first week, all milk is pooled. I do know Totality & Eclipse were both milking over 1 quart/day. Red Hot was doing close to two quarts. On her last official milk test Red Hot milked 3.7# (last year).

Thanks all, I'm pretty excited! :D

So what happens when one of your personal favorite does is in season and you just cannot decide what buck to breed her to? You breed her to both your bucks! That's right, Willow has been bred to *B Charms AND *B Kiegh. ALL kids will be DNA'd. My bucks already have DNA on file and I've been working on the does so no big deal

Fingers crossed that we get a doeling from both sires


I already put Charms info in the first post, so won't post it again but here's Kiegh :)


My Willow! Yes, she may be my favorite child LOL These pics were right before she turned 2 years old.

She'll get a Lamancha buck. No more long ears here so may as well continue crossing in the LM.

More does getting bred! Paris & Berlin both have had a “date”. So excited for spring kiddings. Two more yearlings, Summer and Trinity have also been bred. With our move and life being crazy I never got and real pics of them. They are the daughters of SGCH Wings & Caprines CarolinaGirl EX 90 and *B Kiegh. Super excited about to see their FF udders.

30 milking does is way too much work, and they don't even have blue eyes and moonspots? Don't worry though, I'll take some of them off your hands for you :p ;)
I'll ship (rofl) I'm going to be on kid overload this spring.
I do have a confession to make though.... I love blue eyes! It's very rare here and of course I'd never breed for eye color, but I think blue eyes are adorable. :)

Oh my you’re going to have a bumper crop of gorgeous kids this season aren’t you!
Good luck and sending pink thoughts your way though I’d love a buckling from a couple of your girls. Maybe next season when I can walk better I can get one. I’m so glad you seem to be getting settled in to your new digs. Still jealous over your new barn, did you get the milk room in?

How’s Ruth doing? I was thinking about her the other day and meant to ask.
