I thought I had posted about three guests we got the day Castle Rock Saranghe left us, but apparently I didn't the info up.
So Grace Ridge, who was kind enough to loan us Saranghe was having some bear problems at their place. So I am leasing three of their does until after kidding and they have had a chance to build a goat fortress.
Last summer we purchased One Summer Night from them - and we absolutely adore her! Her dam 5 Fold Farm EN Half of Night better known as "Layla" is one of the does that is spending the winter and spring with us. And I am looking forward to getting a chance to milk her out after having watched her LA in 2019.
We also took in GraceRidge CG Havilah a lovely doe out of Castle Rock Cyclogensis and her 2020 daughter National Velvet who is out of Pippen Hill CC Golden Touch.
All three of them are bred to Castle Rock Saranghe and are due around the end of February. Kids will be registered as Wags Ranch offspring and of course I will be getting first pick. Which means I need to sell some off some of my herd, which after the hard cuts I made last year is easier said than done.
Kidding Schedule Update
anghe - Havilah, Layla and Velvet are due at the end of Febuary
Saranghe - Blush, Violet, Moana & Presley - beginning = middle of March
Kingfisher - Levana, Moolatte & Rosie - due April 16th
Tide - Suede & Summer - due May 6th
Does that still need to be bred are Zippy, Viennetta. Their not being bred is totally my fault. I have been working extra hours and have been relying to heavily on my 2-legged kids to catch the does in heat. I am going to be locking those two up with Kingfisher starting this evening.
I was debating about breeding Gal and Puzzle as well, but decided since I don't usually breed does until they are at least a year old, I will wait on them. The only reason I bred the two I did is because they are large enough and Tide will be leaving us in just a month or two as he has a pending sale to the Australian Syndicate.
As previously mentioned I have to make some more cuts in the herd and after agonizing over it for weeks. I will be putting Zippy up for sale. She will be available as a possibly bred to Kingfisher doe. So her kids will could be blue-eyed and moon spotted if you like an extra bit of glam. She is a Castle Rock High Tide daughter and did pretty well as a first freshener and has nice teat length.
