    We picked up the newcomers today; a momma (Honey), a yearling (Rudy, probably pregnant), and one of Honey's kids. (No name yet, born in December)

    For those more knowing than I, what would their colors be called? I know Honey is most likely a chamois.

    Aren't they the cutest? A little wild, but I was able to scratch them a little bit while I fed them.

    Honey is either carmel or chamoisee

    Baby girl is black and white

    Rudy -- difficult to say. seems like she doesnt have a distinct color pattern or I should say one distinct pattern. I want to say possibly broken buckskin :shrug:

    I thought she would be difficult. I suppose I could call her a tri-colored broken buckskin? She sure is cute . . . we may hold onto one of her babies instead of one of Hope's, as her kids will not be related to my buck. It all depends I suppose. I sure wish I could let ya'll hear how she sounds, everytime I hear it I laugh like crazy!

    They sure are pretty!
    Maybe Rudy will have a buckling if shes preg, and Hope will have a doeling XD

    Honey is a medium caramel agouti.
    Second doe is a mix of different colors, looks like some buckskin, but a lot of blending....There wouldn't be any distinct color pattern on her.
    Third doeling is black w/ minimal white.
    They all are really cute!!!

    Honey I would call chamoisee with some roaning; the other, I agree doesn't have definite pattern enough (like a cape for buckskin ) for me to call it anything but tri-color.
