We were blessed last Wednesday with our first babies of the year.  God is good!  Very uneventful deliver for a First Freshener doe.  We've been waiting for CBF TZ Marina to get pregnant for a very long time 
so we stuck her with a very seasoned buck this year (MCH/CH Hill Country's DAX Stitch *S) 
This cross produced two very lovely well put together boys who are extremely friendly and 
will likely be sold as wethers.  Bummer for the hay fund but at least they are healthy, cute and 
This is D1 who my daughter calls Captain Jack Sparrow (Sparrow for short) 

and this is D2 - Will Turner - or Turner for short.  Suzy has spoiled Marina rotten as Marina is her doe 
and I have a feeling that these boys will also be spoiled rotten as well.  If I cannot find Suzy, she's usually out in the goat pen holding and loving on the boys.  Tomorrow morning will be our first morning milking. I will separate momma and babies tonight for about 10 hours and have our first milking of the year. 
Oh my goodness.  It's only been about 3 weeks since I dried up the last two girls but I cannot wait to have milk and cheese again!!!! 
I have actually milked Marina a few times as she is fuller than the boys can drink and she's easy breezy - should be a good doe for Suzy to start milking this year.  
Now we are on baby watch for Doe #2 to freshen. Seldom Herd Dickory is due (also bred to Stitch) on wed of this week - She's HUGE!!!  Praying for a few girls on this one.
