Okay, not the best pictures but here is our new blue eyed buck - Flying Goat Jazzy Blues. I had almost given up on the idea of having a blue eyed buck around these parts (and later blue eyed babies ) until my buddy Kat made me a deal I couldn't refuse!!! Jazzy is beautiful. He has a long gorgeous neck, wide escutcheon and strait legs and good angularity, flat ribbing well spaced. It wasn't too hard a decision to take this little guy home. He's so sweet and has very similar lines to our herdsire CBF Entei but he's got my favorite buck Kaapio Acres BT RAcketeer thrown in for good measure. Momma - PrairieWood Bella has a nice, tight, well attached udder and his Sire's dam and granddam have some pretty nice udders as well. Can't wait to see the incredible things Jazzy does to our herd.

Thank you Hidalgo family for providing an incredible home for our Little Shakespeare. We know you will enjoy him as much as we do and we look forward to seeing you all at the shows and at goat club meetings.

Joie provided us with our first set of Nigerian triplets. 1 Doeling and 2 bucklings (wethers). The doeling is Princess Malina (according to Suzy her owner - we are trying hard to sway her to name her Twinkle little star) the boys are being called Racer and Crash (not because of carcrash in our thoughts, it isn't, but he sort of crash landed upon arrival. WE didn't think she had any more and voila - there was number three! Racer has a racing strip down his back hence Racer.
The doe came breech but is fine and very strong!!! She was up nursing in no time and the boys took a while. But, there they are! Way to go Joie and Entei!

Both will be available upon weaning if anyone is interested they can contact me at NMgoatgal@gmail.com Currently they are called Dixie and Shakespeare.

I will post a picture of little Jazzy when I get a good shot or two without people in the picture. I will also try to get pics of mom and dad. If you can't wait - you can click on the flying goat ranch link under my links section and see Bella, Huck and the triplets: Jazzy and his brother and sister.
He is buck #1 with the floppy ear and less flashy.

Here are pictures of Miss Willow at about 3 weeks before kidding.
Right now we are about 2 weeks to kidding and can't wait. Check out that Belly!!!! She carries very low and not very wide. Next I'm posting pics of Joie who carries pretty wide but not real low. Fun to watch and see the babies move around!
