More Great News regarding our buck.

Our little buck Ironwoodranch A Good Intrigue *S/*B 's dam Ironwoodranch SJ Pecan 2*D/2*M made it to ADGA's Superior Genetics list for 2010. Exciting because this is the first year Nigerians are included in the SG program and she earned it through her herd participating in the 305 day milk testing program as well as Linear Appraisal program.
She is one leg away from being a permanent champion also so her SG status can be upgraded once she earns that leg.
WE sure are happy with our stinky little guy! he's bred several of our does and several outside does now for spring 2010 babies. WE really are looking forward to seeing what his kids do this coming year and the years to follow. Thank you so much Ironwood Ranch for our Intrigue. He is a little treasure for us and will be happy to use him for the years to come!
There is also a possibility that a new buck will join our herd this year. His Granddam is Pecan's herdmate Minnie who also made it to the SG list. I won't say much more until this new little guy comes to join our herd as he isn't even born yet. Minnie is also tied with one other doe for the highest milk quantity on a one day test at 7.0#s. NOT that I want that much milk but the genetics are there to sustain a good milking herd of Nigerians.
I think we have a lot to look forward to in 2011 and beyond thanks to the addition of some excellent animals joining our little herd. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! See you and your herd in 2011. PS - we are currently updating our website now. Check soon for breeding page updates as well as the arrival of new kids starting in Feb 2011.
