This weekend involved driving, lots and lots of driving! I had spotted Golden Era Made Me Blush for sale down in San Jose, CA and had arranged purchase and transport for her on Friday Then I got an email from Castle Rock farms Thursday evening letting me know there was a blue-eyed buckling available out of Tsunamie x Cooper. Tsunamie is a maternal half-sister to the 2015 ADGA National Champion doe Flood. So sight unseen I agreed to purchase him and then canceled my transportation reservation for Blush. Saturday we drove to San Jose and picked up Blush in the hills above the city and returned to Vacaville for the night. We picked up High Tide who is almost 6 weeks old, first thing Sunday morning and headed home. Oddly, it rained the whole time we were in California and we only had sun for the Oregon portion of the trip.
The above pictures were taken shortly after we got home from all that traveling. Better pictures will be taken at a later date, when they have had a chance to acclimate to their new surroundings.
I will of course be making them pedigree pages, but in the meantime here are some of the does behind Tide. The top row is his dam's side, the bottom row are on his sire's side. Carina and Hot Tamale were 3rd and 4th place in the 4 yr old class at the 2013 ADGA Nationals.
