After losing Violet last fall, and then having health issues of my own, and computer issues I have been rather neglectful on keeping up with the news. So here is a recap before the next round of kidding occurs.
On 3/25 Gal x Tundra produced quads, 3 bucks and 1 adorable doe kid that will be retained. Gal short cycled and I bred her to Tundra again and apparently both times took. After she delivered the placenta 8 hours post kidding with what we thought was just triplets out popped a huge single buck kid that was DOA. My best guess he is was a product of the first breeding as he had a different placenta and was almost twice the size of the other three.
On 4/16 Kaimu x Tundra kidded with a single large buckling. He was as large or larger Gal's kid that had a three weeks head start on him. We have nicknamed him Rocket man and he has such a big personality and he loves to jump. He is going to be a wether companion to his sire.
Introducing our newest buck - *B TILL-RIV TA DR PEPPER. This blue-eyed boy born in 2021 will be replacing Tundra as one of our two herd sires. Tundra will be staying locally within the county so we will be seeing him again. Doc's dam has an LA score of VEEE91 that she received as a 9 year old. In 2020 she received the ANDDA Total Performer Award.
