I've been working on creating pedigree pages for all of my goats. I could just buy them, but it is actually more interesting to do the research and learn about the various does and bucks in the family tree.
For example, I found out that Rio's paternal grand-dam had a 6 lbs (3/4 of a gallon) one day milk test score as a three year old. And I found pictures of her and her udder the day of the milk test was done.
I have also created a new form for the pedigrees that goes back one more generation than I previously had, and I am planning on slowly updating (or creating) all pedigrees using that new form. So far both bucks are up-to-date.
And speaking of pedigrees I am on a search to add another buck to the herd, but he absolutely must be unrelated to either Sunshine or Rio, and he needs to be out of a high production doe. Blue eyes would be a bonus, but the other two criteria are by far more important. So if you have a buck or a buck kid that you think would work please let me know!
