    ok so i'm starting to make my breeding scheduel for the nigerians fo spring kiddings. i just can't decided who i should breed amelia to. amelia is our best doe and she's only lost her class twice out of 11 shows? she only need two more legs for her PGCH and she's 19 1/2 inches tall. i have four bucks but i've narrowed it down to kevin and loki. i've already bred her to my chocolate buck and they make really nice kids but i want to try something else and my littlest buck sur i'm holding for next fall. anyway here's the choices and some pictures of amelia. ( their not the best pictures but there all i have presently)

    pedigree:

    sire:Starbucks SA Sidekick
    s.s.: Starbucks Arnold PGCH
    s.d:Starbucks Snickers

    dam:Ashum Acres Look At Me
    d.s.:McScurry Farms Exacute
    d.d.:Woodhaven Farms Twinkie

    Okay, based on pedigree and the udder pictures, I would go w/ Kevin. He looks nice (harder to tell in this pic) but his pedigree looks great.

    I am actually going to say Loki. It is hard to tell in the pics of Kevin (great pedigree), but it looks like Amelia has a bit of a steep rump, and Loki does not, and I like his maternal granddam as well, Lavender is a nice doe. Although, Kevin may be just as nice. Hard to tell.

    amelia isn't posed in the pictures, i'm just holding her still. she' doesn't have a very steep rump but it could be longer

    I would choose Loki....his grandsire has the rear height and his sire has length as well as his grand dam ....but either way kids from either one you choose to use should be awesome. :greengrin:

    I can't get any of Loki's pictures to come up-but Kevin's Granddam is sure pretty.And he sure has a lot of MCH's in the pedigree behind him. Goodluck with whichever buck you use:).

    Well SDK you just HAD to post a pic of my doe when she wasent filled up lol. I will get a pic to you when she kids and it is actually full lol. in that pic she hadent even kidded yet, it was no where near full. Lilly has a beautiful udder, smooth fore and wonderful side attachments, my only complaint is I would like it just a hair higher in the back, BUT being 7 years old I wish all my does would have as nice of an udder at her age!! Loki does have some beautiful and amazing animals in his pedigree and should pass on some amazing babies, but your other boy is very very nice as well!! I am gonna say loki just cause he is my breeding lol

    haha little biased!! just kidding. i love that little man. i think what its going to come down to is whoever is big enough to get the job done. i'm not breeding these does ( amelia and aurora) ( aurora didn't kid..again) until november. that way i will have two sets of kids in jan/feb and two sets ( hopefully) in april and then i'll have a fresh does for nationals.
