Welcome Flying Goat Jazzy Blues

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.

Shakespeare is SOLD

Well, we sold our first baby. It's going to be a hard day around here when Shakespeare goes to his new home but we know he is going to a fantastic home where he will be show by a 4Her.
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.

Matty Will be a DADDY!

So hard not to get excited but I know it's still too soon to get excited as a lot can happen. But we just found out miss Gracie is pregnant. Her little belly is a little rounder than it used to be. Praise G*D that Matty could do his job but we are keeping Gracie in our prayers for safe delivery of healthy puppies in about a month.

CBF "Shakespeare" (wether)

Here is adorable little Shakespeare. He is black and white all over and as cute as they come. He's also a sweetie pie. He is the first one to come over and try to sit in our laps and he follows us everywhere. He also loves streaking around the goatpen and teasing the two other boys since he's older! My daughter say's You just gotta love him - we do, but again, we will have to part with this sweet little boy who will make someone a fine pet or show wether. He's very well built and I wish I could sell him as a buck!

CBF "Malina"

I fully intended to keep this girl because her mother has the nicest, most supple udder I've seen but is a bit narrow. BUT we all fell in love with Dixie, the other doeling and so reluctantly will be putting Malina (name can be changed) up for sale. It will be a sad day when she goes to her new home but we can't keep them all. She is all black with a little white "moon" and star on her head. She is wider than her mom and she is tiny. She will be very dairy.
Also out of CBF Entei and Joie de Vivre

CBF "Crash" (wether)

This is Crash - also out of CBF Entei and Nizhoni's Joie de Vivre.
Crash is about the cutest little broken Chamoisee I've seen and sweet too - His name really fits his laid back personality - He's the one whose napping when everyone else is playing! Though, he definitely does his fair share of playing - he plays hard and crashes long!
Crash will also be for sale towards the end of March

CBF "RACER" (wether)

This is Racer (name can be changed). He is a light buckskin with white belt. Looks a lot like his daddy - CBF Entei. We are wethering him and he will be for sale near the end of March.
Racer's mom is Nizhoni's Joie de Vivre.

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!

Blessed Beyond Measure

This last weekend my dear friend from Flying Goat Ranch blessed us with a new herdsire. This little guy will fullfill several dreams. First is that my husband dearly wanted a black and white. The second is blue eyes in the herd. Handsome little one month old Flying Goat Jazzy Blues will join the herd in one month when he is weaned. He is the son of Prairiewood Bella and PrairieWood Huckleberry. Bella brings in the Racketeer bloodlines I love and Huck brings some pretty stunning lines as well with Lost Valley KW Orion. Player, Huck's dam goes back to MK Ephrath who has a pretty stellar udder. Bella's udder is nothing to be sneezed at and she has a beautiful dairy body to go with a lovely first freshening udder. I know we already have some Orion going on in the herd but this little guy will bring some pretty awesome genetics. We will use him in conjunction with our new little guy from Rancho Esperanza when he arrives.
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.

Joie 2 1/2 Weeks until Babies

Here is Joie who is waddling around and huge - these pics do not do her wide berth justice! LOL. She is beautiful. I have some very excited children who can't wait for their babies to come.

3 Weeks until Babies

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!
