Long, picture heavy post ahead Summer 2018, my doe CarolinaGirl was pregnant. I told myself that I wouldn't be keeping any kids from this kidding, and needed to just stick with what I already had. CarolinaGirl kidded, the moment I dried this doe kid off and saw her stand up, I said I'm keeping her. As time went on, I was just in awe over this little kid. I knew she was something special. I entered her in a show, NC's largest show with several hundred Nigerians. Willow was such a young kid, I wasn't expecting a whole lot as she was in the Jr kid class, many of the kids in the class were over two months older than her. That's a huge difference when you are dealing with such young kids! Still, she managed her way to the top of her class, but my doe Paris beat her out for GCH. That was NC's last show for 2018. Spring 2019 came around and I entered Willow. She went on to win her class, then went GCH, then Best Jr Doe in show. I was over the moon! Willow stayed home for the following shows as I don't continue showing Jr does once they have their dry leg- unless it is our State fair. The next weekend, Willows littermate sister also went GCH and earned her leg. State fair 2019 roles around. I only took a handful of does, with it being such a massive and competitive show I was pretty nervous. Again, there was a pretty big age difference! Some of these does were 6 months older than my sweet Willow. Still she did great! Here she is winning the dry yearling class. Willow went on to go GCH Best Jr doe in Show for her second time! Her dam, CarolinaGirl was GCH and Best Sr doe in show as well! Talk about great promise! I have had such high hopes for this little doe, but in the end it all comes down to her udder. We bred Willow and have been on pins and needles waiting for her to kid. I had hopes of keeping a doeling, but of course she had a buck LOL But, I was blown away by her udder.... SHE'S A KEEPER! Yes, I know the pic is a bit messy but I couldn't help but share. Sometimes you have to go with your gut. I'm proud of this one! Willow will be two years old in June. This girl has a bright future!
