Long Time No Blog!

With the busy schedule that March Madness (aka kidding season) brought, I realized that I have failed to blog. 

So much has happened! Each of our three does had a single kid. Tally had a ten pound chocolate buckling who is  already in his new home where he is the Jr herdsire. Hershey gave us a beautiful, chocolate and white doeling. And Lacey, our sweet,wonderful grade LaMancha doe gave us a solid milk chocolate doeling. Lacey, unfortunately was CAE positive and became symptomatic. She was in so much pain that we had to put her down. It was one of the hardest things we have had  to do. We loved her so much. But we have her daughter who was pulled the minute she born into this world since she never received so much as s drop of milk from Lacey, she will be free of the CAE virus. We had to say goodbye to our beloved Lacey, but we have her beautiful daughter to remember her by.

We also brought in a new Jr herdsire and a new doeling!

Without further ado, here is our babies!All registered names are of course pending approval by the ADGA.

This first pic is our new Jr herdsire, Crossroads End's Diamond Rio in the lead, with Crossroads End's Lady Antebellem (the black and white one) and Oat Bucket Farm Lacey's Jewel both following him.

Joy says, "I am just as cute."

Jewels says, "I'm cute too and I have jewels (wattles) to boot!"

  1. Oh....I am so sorry about your girl Lacy, it is so hard to lose one, but even harder when you have to make the choice to put them did right by her even though letting her go was heartbreaking.

    Beautiful babies!

  2. I'm so sorry about you losing your beloved Lacey. The new babies are adorable though and I'm sure they will worm their way into your heart in no time. I love baby goats with all their energy. The kisses aren't bad either. Hope you have a blessed day.

  3. Thank you! We are very happy with our babies this year. Baby goats are the best! The only thing better is the adult does who stand like statues on the milk stand and give us wonderful, clean tasting milk to drink.

  4. I've said it before, but I'll happily say it again....Your babies are beautiful!!!! I honestly never thought Lamanchas would appeal to me, but my short time with Tonka & I'm HOOKED 100%!! I hate to admit it, but I'm more attached to him than I am Sam, who I raised from a baby. Tonka, is just so mellow, so easy going & willing to please. I'm itching to add more! Would love to have one of your future way or another I'll figure out how to get one :-)

    You MUST keep the blog updated with pics as they grow. :-)
