The we got our first lambs of the year on 1/24/13. One ram and a one ewe that was still born. The ram is a southdown X hamp/suffox cross. He look great he will probably be one of our new rams. Levan ridge farm x16 "charlie" had twins on 1/22/13, a buck and doe. The buck weighted 11.9lbs and the doe 8.8lbs. Their sire is Hobby Venture Simon Z872. We are still waiting on mva1 spot and mva1 mahogany to have kids.
This afternoon Speedy had a buck kid(wether). He weighted 12.1lbs and his sire is Hobby Venture Simon Z782. The next couple of does that are due are all breed to Hobby Venture Simon Z782. Today MVA1 DORA was marked by B4BG GOLD DIGGER and MVA1 BERKLEY was marked by MVA1 SUNDANCE also. I am hoping the cross between dora and digger will produce some good does and wethers with color. The cross between berkley and sundance will put HMR SUMO Three times in the pedigree along with DCW BJ'S HOT SHOT pedigree. MVA1 TICKLES was sent with MVA1 FANTASIA to be breed to HOBBY VENTURE SIMON and HOBBY YOU'RE A DASHING. BDBN TWIDDLES is starting to get big looks like she might have quads again she was breed to B4BG GOLD DIGGER this time, the ewe are getting close to lambing and we will be keeping most of the ewe lambs to replace the older ewe since most of the ewes are getting old.
Freckles had twins around 1:30 p.m. She had one of each, the doe weighted in at 10.6 Lbs and the buck was 9.5 Lbs. Their sire is AABG STATUS SYMBOL who is double bred T333 Ripper. Blossom had her triplets around 3:00 p.m. Two does one of which is a paint and a paint buck. Their sire is AABG WATHCA WANT. Its been a busy afternoon. We are pleased with the kidds from the Artificial Insemination. Got about 10 days till our next ones are due.
Well blossom and "freckles" both have tight udders so we are thinking they are going to possibly have babies today or tomorrow. We weighted the october babies and were quiet suprised about some of their weights. We have been weighting the kids with a luggage scale, our rapala fish scale broke or the battery in it died.
Thunder Cloud 28 Lbs
Storm Cloud 26 Lbs (wether)
**Moonshine 53 Lbs (biggest october baby,wether)
Sweet Tooth 34 Lbs
Gold dust 30 Lbs(wether)
Coco 30 Lbs
Chanel 25 Lbs
The 2013 kidding season started his morning with Juanita having the first kids of 2013 in single digit temps, can' t touch any metal with or you freeze to it. She had two does that weighted 8.8 lbs and 8.2 lbs. They are Gold digger girls and they are both red and one of them has a black strip down its back. The new livestock trailer works great and our birthing area, its has three compartments so you can have three goats in there at once. Now we are just waiting on Blossom and WBCC X06 "Freckles" to have their babys and they were artificially inseminated with AABG Watcha Want and AABG Status Symbol.
