Happy Mother's Day to me!
I love the udders my first buck, Maple Sunshine, put on his daughters and when it was time for him to move on to another home I thought I had plenty of his daughters in my herd. And then two years later I realized I had sold or traded away all but two. I tried to get the last doe kid he sired here back, but no luck.
I knew the person that had purchased him from me had subsequently sold him out of state so it looked like I was going to have to be content with the two lovely ladies I had. And then out of the I blue, I had the opportunity to acquire the last kids he sired in Oregon along with their lovely dam Bristol.
The doe kid (far right) has a little more white, but she is the same shade of gold as her sire and has his golden eyes as well. I wanted to name her something that used at least part of his name, but I was over ruled as we watched she and her brother romp through a patch of buttercups. Yup after consciously not choosing that name for the past seven years I gave in and agreed. So she is Buttercup and her brother has been nicknamed "Butterscotch" . He will be available a a wether when he is weaned.
