The girls of July
I had intended to post this earlier but we were struggling to come up with a name that fit Tanya's second doe kid. The children picked desserts/sweets as the name theme for this year and we just couldn't come up with anything that fit her. So I took to calling her my "cow-girly". Finally in desperation we solicited names from friends on Facebook and the name suggestion "Mocha Moolatte" came up. We don't have a Dairy Queen near us so I had never heard of that particular ice cream coffee drink before. But the name fit her like a glove and also connects nicely with her sister's name which is Mocha Swirl.
For our final doe kid born this year we had a big name challenge as I have wanted to name all of Violet's daughter with names that start with a V. Add in a dessert them and our options were quite limited. Until I remembered a wonderful ice cream treat that is no longer available in the US. Viennetta suits her right down to the swirls of darker color running through her coat. And while she may not have gotten her sire's moonspots (as far as we can tell) she did get his blue-eyes.
Of these three only Mocha Swirl is going to be available for sale when weaned. Hubby has taken a fancy to Moolatte so she is staying. Swirl has very nice conformation and unlike her sister likes to strike a pose, so she may end up doing well in the show ring.
In addition to Mocha Swirl, Blackberry Tart and Caramel Apple will be available for sale when weaned. I will post more pictures when they are closer to weaning age although if you are interested shoot me a message and I will be glad to take current pictures for you.
