Sunday we drove up to Victory Caprines in Vernonia to take a look at the buckling "Rio the Rebel". Hard to resist such a handsome boy, and since he is unrelated to anyone else in my herd he is now our second herd sire.
When we got him here our herd queen Allie had to check him out and once he had her approval we introduced him to the "big boys". Stormy was less welcoming than his mom had been, and was being so pushy that he was moved to the girls pen. Once Stormy was no longer a factor, Sunshine was pleasant enough to his new herd mate and has generally left him alone.
We are certainly hoping this fine looking young buck will live up to his wonderful pedigree and help us continue to improve our herd.
