After making me get up to check her at night for two weeks after her supposed due date (I must have got her service date wrong), Krebs Farm OT Steelic Mist 2*M 2*D AR kidded with a nice doe kid sired by Krebs SR DeClaire *B*S. Not only is this doeling our first DeClaire kid, she is also the result of a line breeding on one of our all-time favorite crosses, Hickory Leaf Claire 1*M 1*D AR x MT Rivendells OLV Oliver Twist. She looks a lot like her dad did when he was little--she's long and level with nice dairy structure under all the fuzz. She is also covered in taupe moonspots. She will be retained for now. With the quality udders and milkability in this line, I have high hopes for her. Anyone have ideas for names? I'm at a loss.
MT Rivendells HW Dove 1*M 1*D also kidded with a buck kid sired by DeClaire. This kid is spoken for. He is chamoise with blue eyes.
The next doe to kid will be Krebs SR Clairify 3*M 3*D, due on February 12. She is bred to MT Rivendells Mr. Darcy. Clairify sure looks like she is going to have three or more kids. She is scheduled to go on 305-Day Milk Test this year.
