Litters - 4 Weeks Old

The litters are doing will! :-) I have my eyes on a few of the cuties! A broken chesnut buck from Cinnamon & and Broken Opal Doe from Ice. I also really like the broken opal buck, but since he's unshowable I don't really have room to grow him out just to breed him & I can always repeat the breeding. The broken opal doe is soooo cobby, it's amazing. She doesn't have as much head as her sister, but her's is not bad at all! The broken chesnut is incredibly thick & compact. He should help with a few things in my line I've been wanting to add. I want to rebreed Cinnamon back to Sundance, this time hoping for a bigger litter as well as some chocolates!

On another note, Dusty & Starlight are due to kindle this monday. I am excited to see what they have! I have given them nests already & they have been working! lol. I am excited for some more babies from these does, they produce very nice stock. I will that these babies available with me at the Paso Robles show in April, if anyone's interested. I'm only planning on keeping one baby, if that.

1/12 KCRBA Backyard Show

I had a fun time at the show! I was clerking for Judge Randy Shumaker for a majority of the day. I got to see some DQ's I had never seen before - so it was a learning experience! :-)

In Show A & B my doe from Convention, Kitsemble's Sidney, won BOB. Those are her first 2 legs! I am hoping I can grand her out this spring so I can try to get some babies from her. She should help my herd out a lot!

On the Best in Show table, Sidney did well! In Show A she got Honorable Mention & in Show B she took Reserve in Show!

BIS in both shows when to Berlena Reynolds.

New Litters! :-)

On December 31, Blue Ice gave me a litter of 3 healthy broken opals sired by GC Sundance Kid! 2 have awesome markings, but one unfortunately has no nose markings, just like Ice. Oh well, it can still be a good breeding animal!

On January 2, GC Apple Cinnamon gave me a litter of 2 healthy broken chesnut/chinchilla sired by GC Sundance Kid! We are VERY excited for this litter, and hope to attain some goals with them :-)

Dusty had a litter of 4, but they froze during the night due to the lack of fur in the nest :-( We will be rebreeding her soon!

Our next show is in a few days, we'll tell you of our results :-)
