    Megan emailed me this afternoon and let me know that my Lakeshore Farms kids were born!! I'm SO excited, and I got just what I wanted!! They both had triplets, 2 bucks and 1 doe.

    The buck kid is out of SGCH Lakeshore Farms Hearts Extasia 1*M, you can see her here http://www.lakeshorefarms.com/extasia.htm

    The doe kid is from Lakeshore Ace Shakira 2*M http://www.lakeshorefarms.com/shakira.htm

    Let me know what you think! Oh, and hopefully they are going to be shipped in on April 12 or 19th. Now just to pay for them..... :roll:

    Oh they are so cute! Shakira's doeling is so adorable!

    It's hard to tell with those pics...but I think I would go with Buck 2. Although he is standing better in that pic than Buck 1 is in both of his pics. Buck 2 looks a bit longer. I'm not sure...those are aren't the best when looking at conformation. Ask Megan....

    buck number two for sure, he is longer and taller has a longer neck and a more level topline. and he looks like he has less control of his ears then number one.

    Yeah Beth....I was thinking the same about the ears.

    Let me tell you I have two genetic half siblings, Flicka and Cass, to the Extasia bucklings. Sin and Heat are brothers from a set of quads. Sin is not an "ear" buck...and what I mean by that is that he doesn't throw very long ears. And from the looks of Extasia's bucklings ears....Heat isn't an "ear" buck either.

    Thanks for the imput. From the pictures I definitely like buckling #2 best. I just emailed Megan to see what she thinks.

    Also she said I could come up with some possible names too. Here's what she likes to do with the names.

    "When naming the kids, we generally like to name them with the first letter of the mother's name or if we get creative enough and have a themed name that follows suit of either the sire or dam, we use that too. Since Extasia's kids are sired by Summer Heat, the initials that we use before their names are "SH" and for Shakira's doeling we would use "PS" to symbolize Perfect Storm. However...we are always open to suggestions. :)"

    So we need an "S" name for Shakira's doeling and a "E" name for the buckling. Any suggestions?
