Violet was the last to kid and after a rough night she kidded with an extensive assist the morning of May 9th. She was our last doe to kid that was bred to Tundra and our last hope to get a doe kid from him. And she delivered in a BIG way.
She had a single HUGE doe kid that I had to dig deep to untangle and get her delivered. We named in honor of her paternal grand-dam the beautiful SGCH Castle Rock Polar Vortex VEVE91 who was killed in the wildfire that swept over Castle Rock Farms in October of 2020. We are very excited to have her join our herd, but very concerned about Violet who is having a difficult time recovering.
Bless her heart, Violet accepted the tiny buck kid from Summer that was born 5 days earlier and was getting pushed aside by his much larger sisters.
Sales Page Updated
The sales page has been updated with the names of the four does in milk that will be available after weaning and the dry yearling that is available now. Their info can be found on the doe page too.
In addition we have three 2022 doe kids available as we are only retaining Arctic Vortex this year in order to keep numbers down. Next year we will only be kidding out 4 does as I continue to prep for my eventual retirement from goats due to progressing disability.
