D is for DIXIE

This pretty little Doe is Dixie - she is out of our Foundation dam El Cerro Wind in the Willows who we parted with this year (that hurt!)to a sweetheart - Janice.
Dixie is only one of two daughters and so far a keeper. She's beautiful!

At 6 weeks Dixie (AKA: CBF Ent's Whistling Dixie) won Jr. Champion at the March Mini Madness Goat show in Albuquerque, NM - my favorite comment by the judge was "sometimes good things really do come in small packages" I knew that when I first saw her precious little impish face when she was born.

See - how could anyone deny that this is the cutest little goat EVER
she just stole my heart. I was only planning on keeping one doe this year and ended up keeping TWO.

This is Miss Dixie now - at almost 11 month old and about 8 weeks into her first pregnancy - she still has the cutest face of all of my goats. Of course we are praying for doe from all of the girls (except the Alpine - we want boys there!)

I am just starting to see a little bit of a baby bump (not that you can tell in this picture since she's eating - haha.
Dixie is the culmanation of several of our breeding decisions (and some rather painful partings as i've had to sell her sire and her sire's dam to make room) We hope that Dixie throws us some fantastic milking babies and that she lives up to her older sister's example - a milking star as a first freshener!

And that's not Whistling Dixie either!

Dixie is Dynomite, D!
