This is something -- Liesl had quintuplet DOELINGS this morning. Everyone is healthy and vigorous, and Liesl is doing a great job mothering them all. The doelings' sire is Grand Design, and they are full sisters to two of our favorite young does, My Favorite Things and Raindrops On Roses, who will be 2-year-old second fresheners when they kid in the next week or so. We will probably let go of several of these doelings. They come with ADGA & AGS registration. If you are interested in them, please feel free to Contact us.
Photo below is of the whole family taking a well-deserved rest shortly after the kids were born and got their tummies filled with good colostrum.
Tiddlywinks had triplets in the wee hours of the morning. Their sire is Grand Design. There is 1 polled, blue-eyed, buckskin doeling, 1 polled, buckskin & white buckling, and 1 flashy black & white buckling. We will most likely keep the doeling and possibly a buckling. We've bred Tiddlywinks to Grand Design three times now and liked the results every time, so it's about time we kept some kids from it. The other buckling will be available once we evaluate if we will be offering him as a registered buck or as a wether. If you are interested in these kids, please feel free to Contact us.
Photo below is of the kids at about 12 hours old. The doeling is in the front, and other 2 are the bucklings.
Budgie had a pretty set of doe/buck twins yesterday morning. Their sire is Brisbane. Both of them have wattles, and the doeling is covered in moonspots. Brisbane is apparently throwing moonspots on his kids even though he doesn't have any obvious moonspots, because we've gotten several moonspotted kids out of does that haven't been known to throw moonspots with breedings to other bucks (Brisbane's sire has moonspots, which is probably where it's coming from -- the moonspotting gene can hide and "skip" generations).
The doeling will be retained at this time, but if you are interested in her, we can put you on a waiting list. The buckling will be available after we evaluate if we will be offering him as a registered buck or a wether. He's a long, handsome little guy. If you are interested in these kids, please feel free to Contact us.
Photo below is of the kids at 1 day old. The doeling is in the back.
Robin had quadruplets (2 does/2 bucks) yesterday. Their sire is Brisbane. Photo below is one of the bucklings, who will be available after we evaluate if he will be offered as a registered buck or a wether. We may also have a polled doeling available. If you are interested in these kids, please feel free to Contact us.
Clairissa Quinn had twin doelings on April 2. Their sire is Grand Design. Both of them are beautiful, long kids, and very personable already. I think we are going to retain just one because we already have their full sister (Tiger Eye) from last year, but it's going to be tough choosing between the two of them. If you are interested in the other one, please feel free to Contact us. She will come with ADGA & AGS registration.
Photos below are of the doelings at 3 days old. The lighter-colored one has blue eyes. It was a challenge to get them to stop playing long enough to get their photos -- they were zooming around their pen and, as you can see from the last photo, climbing all over mom.
Edelweiss had triplet doelings on April 2. Another beautiful set of kids sired by Brisbane -- we're very pleased with the kids he is producing. And these triplets are so cute! They look like a trio of fluffy little stuffed animals. They have the excellent broad, deep muzzles and width throughout that is typical of the Heidi line (Edelweiss is Heidi's daughter). Two of them are cou blancs with wattles, and the third is a Swiss marked-cou blanc combo. Edelweiss is a doting mother and gives them lots of goat kisses.
Availability of these doelings is tentative (we might retain them all). If you are interested in one if we let her go, you may Contact us to get on the waiting list (note, however, that there are already a couple of people on the waiting list).
Photos are of the doelings at just a few hours old.
Quesadilla had quadruplets on April 2. They are sired by Brisbane and are his first kids. This is a beautiful litter with nice conformation and flashy colors. There are 2 moonspotted buckskin bucklings with wattles (1 of them has blue eyes), 1 buckskin/wattled doeling, and 1 cou clair-buckskin combo doeling with blue eyes. We will retain 1 doeling, and the other doeling will be available with ADGA and AGS registration. The bucklings will also be available after we evaluate if we will be offering them as registered bucks or wethers. If you are interested in these kids, please feel free to Contact us.
Photos below are of the kids at about 9 hours old. The second photo is the two doelings.
SG Pholia Farm HB Claire 8*M AR had quadruplets on March 31. They are sired by Larkstone SP Grand Design *B Elite and are linebred on SG NC PromisedLand Ram-Beau ++B+*S VEE90 Elite and SG NC PromisedLand PAL Paloma 1*M 1*D AR VEEE90. Excellent, milky pedigree on these kids. There is 1 gold/wattled doeling, 1 buckskin doeling, 1 gold buckling, and 1 buckskin/wattled buckling. We plan to retain 1-2 of them, and 1-2 may be available after the current reservation is filled. If you are interested in these kids, please feel free to Contact us.
Photo below is of the kids at 2 days old enjoying a nap under their heat lamp.
Avalon Quinn started our 2023 kidding season early this morning with a set of big, healthy quadruplets, 3 does and 1 buck. They were about 8 hours old in the photo below (buckling is the second one down from the top, and the rest are doelings). Their sire is Grand Design. We will retain 1-2 of the doelings, and the other doeling(s) will be available. They come with ADGA and AGS registration. Please feel free to Contact us if you are interested in purchasing a doeling. The buckling will also be available once we evaluate if we will be offering him as a registered buck or as a wether.
Cookie loves babies, and she sure got enough to satisfy even her motherly little goat self this year!
Cookie (MT Rivendells XF Cookie Crisp 1*M 1*D AR) is a capacious, long-bodied doe who has matured with a strong medial and great teat positioning. She is very easy to milk and is one of those goats we'd have on the milk stand just for the fun of it. She is a granddaughter of the late great SG Old Mountain Farm Black Tulip ++*B*S.
One of her bucklings is still available for $ 850 (he's the closest kid in the photo -- also see photo at "Goats for Sale" under "Bucklings"). His sire is Larkstone SP Grand Design *B Elite.
