... third time's a charm :)

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.
Black, anyone ? This flashy boy was produced by Boston (red roan) and Copper, we keep getting black kids out of Copper but not when bred to black does - go figure. 
Experimental 75% Nubian and 25% Alpine was a huge kid and continued growing and outgrowing all his peers and even kids much older than him. Over 80lbs at merely 4 months, something we just don't see here even though my kids are BIG.
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.

Love of yours with the goats that you have is very charming that to glow on the face of yours and the goats too. Best act that when hold the goats in the lap and love to them while kisses and hugs by turn wise of three goats.
