    Wow, the mom/daughter pair look SO much alike! Even the horns and coloring and everything! And they are both SUPER round! :thumb:

    So I am not very knowledgeable about these breeds... but I thought they were about Nigerian size? Is that right? And do they kid like Nigerians where they could easily have 4 or 5 babies at a kidding?

    Another thing...there coats, especially on the mom/daughter are just beautiful! :love:

    Thanks, the mom and daughter win dam and daughter all the time, they even have the same style and thing for their Cashmere.

    No they are a LOT bigger then a Nigi. They are about 175 -230 pounds full grown. I have had two sets of triplets and but LOTS and LOT of twins but the mom Penny Lane, she tends to have 9 to 9-1/2 pound twins. They are larger.

    That "coat" is Cashmere. That is what the Cashmere sweaters and thing come form. Most people do not know that.

    The funny thing about those pictures, they are a LOT bigger then they look in the pictures. Penny is about 3-1/2 FEET wide. We measured her the other day.

    Thanks Stacey. I just pray they will hold off a bit longer, it is still really cold -44 last night with the wind, but they are in the barn. Penny Lane's ligs are almost gone, I pray she holds off another day or so.

    Thanks me too.

    I have to say you know it is cold when you go to the barn and there are ice crystals on the walls, and all the spider webs are white. I was watching the camera today and right in the middle of the camera is a spider web all crystaled over.

    Oh my goodness!! I had NO idea they were that large! For some reason I thought they were more of a miniature size. I've only seen two from a friends farm and now that I think about it, well maybe they weren't fullgrown. I never asked...
    Love the mom & daughter though.. definitely my fav's! :wink:

    They certainly do look ready to go. Sorry you are going to have to be out in that weather. I think it's unbearable here, but it's nothing like that. It's nice they have those great warm coats. Do you use the cashmere? I thought it was the undercoat. They look wonderful. Can't wait to see what they have,
