I have two Lamancha doelings. One a March kid and one an April kid. I've been thinking very heavily lately whether or not to breed Mini-Manchas or just breed Purebred Lamanchas. What would you do? I was planning to breed them around 7 months old for Minis and if I breed for purebreds it would be 8 months/80 pounds. Meg will be 8 months in November. Birdie December. I am very close to Split Creek farm and she has two Lamancha bucks. Autumn Acres Toluca's Mister T L001334985 *B Glen-Mythos Fafnir L001404634 She charges $40 for breedings with two rebreeds if the doe doesn't settle the first time. If I breed minis I would of course use one of my 4 Nigerian Dwarf bucks. So what to do you think. Here's the pros I've worked out for Lamanchas. *Kids are purebred Lamanchas, with the udder genetics behind them they could be worth more. *Kids can be shown in any AGS/ADGA shows in the area. Cons *Breeding fees to use her bucks. Here's the pros I've worked out for Minis. *I don't have to pay a stud fee and can do the breedings casually here without worrying about them being in standing heat when we treck to Anderson. *Kids maybe a little smaller and easier to deliver on their dam's. Cons *No shows for Minis in our area period. So the kids would be more or less milkers. But should be excellent milkers with the udder genetics my bucks have. *Obsticles of getting the big girls bred by the little guys. I am pretty much planning to keep a doe kid from both in the spring either way. Thanks for reading!
