Spring is in Full Swing

Yes, Spring is definitely here and I think my does are aware of this!

On 4/13/10, Velotta's Bella kindled 8 healthy babies, sired by GC Silent Spring's Triton. I bred Triton to Bella right before I sold him, so these babies are really special to me since they're my only Triton babies! There are 6 Brokens and 2 Solids - all agoutis. They are all fat and sassy except for one of the runty Brokens.

Then, on 4/14/10, White Oak's Wanda kindled to 4 bouncing babies, sired by Bluestar's Edmund! I was really pleased that Wanda did everything right, since her last litter froze. :( It looks like there's 1 Broken (Unshowable) and 3 Solids. All appear to be otters - the broken looks black, while the solids look blue. Exciting, I love Blue Otters!

I fostered the runt of Bella's litter over to Wanda, since she seems to be a heavy milker. I'll try and get some pictures in a few days!

BTW, I have several animals available, check out the "For Sale" page on my website!

Jersey Wooly babies

Blue Buck - Silent Spring's HeartBreaker (KEEP)
Broken Blue Doe - Silent Spring's Jigglypuff.

These babies are out of Bluestar's Edmund and MLW's Cammie. They are so cute and I can't wait to watch them develop! The broken will be available in a few weeks... email me if you're interested in her. :)

Current Litters and Breedings.

Jessa's February litter is doing great! I weaned them last week and they're be ready to leave for their new homes soon. Even though I didn't want to, I am holding back a little broken chestnut buck from the litter to grow out! He is very promising and I'm so excited to see him develop! Most of the litter is sold, though I still have two bucks available. Email me for details. I think both of them would be great for 4H'ers since they're used to being handled.

Cammie's babies from her March litter are possibly the cutest Woolies we've ever had born here! :) There is a cute Blue Buck and an adorable Broken Blue Doe. Sadly the broken blue doesn't have a nose marking but I'm thinking of keeping her anyway! LOL. I'll get pictures up on the blog asap.

Bella and Wanda have palpated positive, though I'll need to double check in a few days. I'm so excited, since Wanda's last litter froze and Bella has just been missing every time I bred her! Crossing my fingers for some live, healthy litters from these does!

I also rebred Cammie since she was wanting to be bred and she still has great condition on this currently litter. I am hoping for some showable brokens this time!

I'll be getting updated pictures of the babies as soon as possible. (:
