Twin bucklings for Creamy
Creamy surprised us on Sunday June 27th on day 145 of her gestation. We were doing two hour checks but she really wasn't looking ready to kid anytime soon. Went out for a check to discover kids all nicely cleaned off and nursing. Impressive for a yearling first freshener who wasn't supposed to get bred. We don't bred kids young, we wait for them to be around 18 months old. But she was big enough and demanding enough that I gave in and bred her.
The white boy has bright blue eyes and has been nicknamed Casper. His more colorful brother has brown eyes and is being called the Calico Kid. Other than this quick photo op while their pen was being cleaned a couple of days after they were born, we kept them penned up in the air conditioned kidding room for a week while we were recording record high temperatures. They are out and about now that daytime highs are in the more manageable temps.
The boys will be available together as pet wethers for $150.
