We have had an exciting Spring here at MrAnimal Farm. We have several new herd additions as well as having participated in our first Linear Appraisal session.
Our New Additions:
Over the last few months, we have been adding a few does and two bucklings to the herd. We have been so excited to have these new additions and cannot wait to see how they continue to do. Most of our new girls have already freshened a few times and a few (Ellie Mae & Blizzard) are senior does. Our two bucklings will be the boys that we use for breeding this year (breeding will be starting soon — in July!) and we can’t wait to see what traits they bring to the babies. Both boys have phenomenal genetics and udders behind them (you can see their pedigrees soon on the goats page). Additionally, we are retaining a few doelings born during Spring kidding and will be excited to see how they mature (they will also be added to the goats page in the future).
