    Alright, I'm sending my deposit in on these two. Now...we can have them bred before they leave Poppy Patch. I am thinking Socialite to Billy and Uptown to Max....Any opinions? Who would you choose? I want to stay away from the Rebel lines because he is the sire to Poppy Seed, the dam of the doelings.

    Sweet!! Congrats! My friend just bought Punkin! I think those two bucks you choose would cross very well on those girls! :thumb:

    Punkin is nice. Now that is what I call pliable skin! Congrats to her!

    I would breed them to a proven buck, Monty. He has daughters on the ground with excellent mammary systems. I like Max a lot but would still stick with a buck that has those milking daughters on the ground.

    Honestly...that's who I first considered. But then I saw Billy is a Monty son and out of a super nice doe. I was torn. But I know I want to try them to different bucks. That way I can see the lines cross and weed out what I don't like.

    I would like to see a more prominent brisket on Billy but Max is real nice

    should make some nice pairings since the girls are strong in that area

    Monty is another good choice

    On Shannon's website she has a doe called Sunshine on her Seniors page who is the sister to Billy and then a daughter of Billy's on the first fresheners page called Ooh La La. After seeing those does I feel pretty confident about trying Socialite to Billy :)

    PHF - sending you doeling vibes!!

    Actually now that I went back and looked into a bit Billy Whiskers is quite nice- as are his sister and his daughter, they both look really consistent.
    Also- that doubles up a linebreeding on Baywatch - not a bad idea at all! :thumb:

    PHF - That's kind of where I was hoping to have some success. It makes for a 3 generation gape before doubling back to Bay Watch. Also, I'll have a buck here who will also be 3 generations down from Bay Watch to try to the girls next year if the Billy pairing works well.

    BUT...Since I have the ability to line breed here...maybe I should take advantage of the out cross while she is with Shannon?
