    okay so i waited a week ( no one hit me.. i wanted to make sure they lived before i told you)

    MY GC tan doe had 3 babies last sunday! they are all blacks too, which is awesome for me..though megan wanted a blue, told her to buy one.

    anyway.. along with that fun

    I finished my doe maneater.. she's now a GC (well pending anyway) with 5 legs, all from different judges. and shes pregnant with my hopefuls for nationals in san diego this year!

    and megans doe trouble won her first leg ever yesterday!!

    all kinds of fun.. heres the girls

    and of course the babies

    thanks pam! i'm really excited with how they're going.. and nationals is the first week of november! so i'm super stoked.

    and a friend has reserved two kits .. one from this litter and one from maneaters.. 80 bucks each too!

    but the one downside is i have to sell some goatie extras.. so 6 to go.. but 4 are wethers.

    Re: WHOO!! bunny news

    if only the goats were the same way :wink:

    lol.. I want to keep two out of each litter till nationals so i have stock to show and sell there.. but demand here is really high here for tans.. I can only think of 4 breeders in the whole state with stock that wins big.

    me, my friend allen, my friend steve, and my friend pat.

    but they're catching on really fast

    alaska.. you could be the first in alaska with tans! lol there's a super awesome breeder in oregon

    Re: WHOO!! bunny news

    Does it benefit you more to keep them for nationals, than to sell them now with demand high? Obviously, you have to have some for show, but would you go below the two you plan to keep? Any shows before nationals-this is going to be exciting to see how it goes?!?!?

    Re: WHOO!! bunny news

    corax - they are called tans, or american tans.. but i don't think you'd want one in a petting zoo, they really dislike alot of handling

    at nationals i want to be able to compete, so the more i show, the higher my chances. and prices are usually higher at nationals.

    we have ALOT! of shows before then lol.. In may our club is holding 6 shows in two days. theres 3 in juneone in july, two in august, and 3 in september. we try to stay away from the hot summer months to avoid overheating.. so i'll probably show the may show.. skip june do the one in july ( its a fair and they pay big!) and then nothing till nationals.

    our average litter is three, and i'll only keep two if they really catch my eye or something.
    my next litter is out of my maneater, so i may actually keep all of that litter and only one from this one

    oh and these ones names are:
    Widow Haven's Toxic
    Widow Haven's Poision
    and Widow Haven's Venom

    I thought that might be the case. I find this very interesting, so thanks for answering my questions. Good luck at the shows and keep us posted on how it goes. Looking forward to Maneater's litter too.
