My Keepers!

Well, I am pretty sure I'm made a good first cut from my three litters, totaling 17 babies. Of course, I'm sure as they mature I'll cull out another one or two, but at the moment all of them are very promising and I've very excited to show them soon!

From Truffle's litter of 3, I am holding back a Broken Opal Doe who I have named Joy-Anna. She has a massive head of her dam, with a very deep, typey body of her sire. Her ears are a little long to balance right now, but they have good texture. She's also got a really pretty pattern, very spotty. :-)

Out of Sidney's litter of 8, I was going to let 4 mature out but I have decided to cull one so I'm down to 3. That group consists of a Broken Steel Buck (Jedidah), a Chestnut Doe (Jana), and a Steel Doe (Jessa). All of them are very similar have have amazing coats. Jessa is my current favorite of the moment, she's very cute.

Finally, I have managed to cull through all of Silver's babies and have decided to let the Opal Doe (Jamie) grow out. I was contemplating letting a chestnut doe mature as well, but I thought it was obvious that Jamie is the best of the litter. I am excited to breed her back to her grandsire, Sundance! :)

I will try to get pictures soon, as time allows. ;).
