Finishing my parade of our previous kid crops with those I considered most fancy. I got my heart warmed today with these pictures, walking down memory lane and remembering the cuties of the past. Most of these are bucks, currently proudly serving in other herds - show and homesteading alike. I'll start with the one doe exception - pretty Miss Hummingbird :)
Hummingbird was a test project - we bred Millie and Copper to see if their matching coloring would produce a kid of the same and we were successful :) What a sweet temperament in this kid - just happy all the time and too cute for words.
Hummingbird's littermate brother Hawk - I dare to say no less flashy. Nice boy with a blaze and a belt, another thing he inherited from dam and sire.
This little boy sold so fast we did not even have a chance to name him. Buck kid out of Truffle and Copper - this was our first chance to breed Copper to a Dakota daughter, we were not disappointed ! We have repeated the breeding, Truffle is due in February.
Last, my absolutely favorite kids born here last year - Cocoa Bean's bucklings Hickory and Jacob. I know I already featured them before but could not help when I found these shots - the width on these boy and the uphill stance, they were quite the lookers and continue to be in their new homes. We can't repeat the breeding since I sold Cocoa Bean at a weak moment, but we are breeding two closely related does back to Dakota - Fern and Celice, my secret weapons this year :) If you are looking to deposit, I would definitely not pass these two by.
