Winter at CBF

Occasionally, we are treated to the rare delight of SNOW here in the desert. This year we were all hoping for the proverbial White Christmas. It snowed before Christmas but was gone by Christmas. Yesterday, we actually saw white.
It was a pretty wet snow so we saw more puddles than the white stuff on the ground but we were willing to take what we could get! At one point the ground really was white. *you can barely see the white on the trampoline*
And yes, even a little white on the ground. Of course the goats think the evil white stuff would melt them! Other news of the day - Stars came home - we think bred to MCH Flying Goat Jazzy Blues *S/*B. I used to own this little guy and have come to kick myself a few times for passing him on due to his rather obnoxious habit of singing to the girls ALL NIGHT LONG (which is really obnoxious when you only have a 1/2 acre) But i have to give a GREAT BIG HUGE THANK YOU to Prairie Wood Ranch & Lora Kniffin for graciously giving me a free breeding for passing on this phenomenal buck to them! Jazzy Paternal Grand Dam is the awesome PrairieWood Player *D/*M who was Number one doe about two years ago on the Top 10 list for One Day milk tests. Jazzy and Stars share a Grand Sire: MCH Lost Valley Orion*B/*S so we are looking forward to some excellent milk/show babies sporting the beautiful black and white coat and blue eyes of their parents. Also: MORE new news regarding the new buck from Arizona - Ironwood Ranch said that it is highly probably that Ironwood SJ Pecan would be in the Top 10 for Milkers on 305 day test for 2009. KUDOS to Ironwood and Pecan for their achievements . I"m HONORED to be getting my new herdsire Ironwoodranch A Good Intrigue *S/*B from you all! Thank you!

*upcoming events to look forward to - Nizhoni's Joie de Vivre *M/*D is due to kid in about 2 weeks.

thank you Tony - We sure do love our goats. We are expecting our first Nigerians of the year this coming week. Can't wait for the furry bouncing bundles.
