Above is Saphie (short of Ravencrest Saphire Dutchess- misspelled on the registration), our wide, black, blue-eyed Nigerian Dwarf doe bred to Donna’s Yahoo, our reddish-brown buckskin buck. The kids she produces look much more like their father except they can have their mother’s blue eyes.
This is Fern, a donated unwanted pygmy doe. She was accidental bred by Cody (AKA Ravencrest Luck of the Draw) and she produced the most gorgeous kids, one buckskin and one brown and white. So I decided to try breeding her again, this time with Yahoo and on purpose.
This is Patches Pal. She is quite plump with kids from her breeding with Mr. (AKA CTC Mr. Mahogany), our mahogany polled buck. This combination produces gorgeous spotted kids with a good chance of being hornless naturally.
This is Windy Valley Jenny, our katmoget ewe with gorgeous fine crimpy fleece. She is pregnant from Jocko (AKA Bitterroot Ansel), our mioget ram with a gorgeous medium crimpy fleece. I am really hoping these lambs inside will be mioget and katmoget.
This is Mountain Niche Sheila, our now middle aged, shaela ewe who had a gorgeous medium crimpy fleece. This is the last time I will breed her with Jocko to produce one last set of gorgeous lambs with modified colors. I plan on keeping one of her lambs to preserve her outstanding genetics. She can then retire to a peaceful sheep life.
This is Bing Bang Wink, our wild mioget ewe with a primitive fleece. She is pregnant by Jocko in hope of producing more mioget (golden-brown) lambs.
This is Donnas-Sheep Monette, the last sheep out of my all time favorite ewe Babette. She does not have a new mutation red spot on her back- she likes to rub on the mineral feeder. She is pregnant by Lewis in hope of making spotted black or grey lambs.
This is Mona, daughter of Monette who likes to get hay all over herself. She produced gorgeous HST lambs last year in her breeding to Lewis so we are hoping she is carrying the same again.
This is Magpie, the prodigy of my first Nigerian Dwarf goat Dot. She is bred to Mr. and is hopefully carrying spotted polled kids again this year.
This is Cally (AAK Shadow Mountain Calypso) in her breeding finale. She is plump with kids from Cody. The last time we used this combination she produced a red and brown buckskin and a brown and white belted kids
This is Angie, our boringly named Angora doe. She was bred again to Cody to produce more Nigora fiber kids. This previous combination brought black and brown kids who grew up to produce the most lovely cashmere fiber so we are hoping for more.
