Prairie Wood PuttinOntheRitz

Finally, here is our new herdsire at one day old (actually - not even one day old). He has the same nice genetics as RA Buckshott does but with blue eyes. We are hoping his mother takes her Master Champion this weekend at the show! She definitely has a good shot at it. We will be showing Buckshott and Ritz but usually Jr's don't take the buck championship at shows so it's mostly for fun and practice. We will be bringing this little beauty home in a few weeks after he's weaned. Looking forward to lots of gorgeous Blue Eyed Chamoisee babies out of this little guy!

Changes at Cornerstone

Changes are happening here at Cornerstone, I had hoped to post the picture of our new herdsire but to no avail! After the show this weekend though, i hope I can post more!!! We have sold two of our goats; PrairieWood Sweet Shalom will go to her new home after kidding, and PrairieWood RA Buckshott. Buckshott is being replaced by PrairieWood PuttinOnTheRitz. A blue eyed Chamoisee buckling with the same great genetics as Buckshott. We are counting down the days to babies, We have (we think) two due around April 13th whose pics we will post upon arrival. One due around May first, one due around May 24th, and one due in late June. One (Zelda) is at the moment off getting bred by MCH Steele Ballew's Blue Bayou...can't wait to see those babies! Should be a great baby year here at Cornerstone. We have a show this coming weekend, the annual March Mini Madness show put on by SWNDGC (one of these days I'll get the link up for you Nigie fanatics who want to come to beautiful NM to show!) and sanctioned by ADGA. Should be a great show year this year too. Lots of goats to show! See you all after the show!
