    That breeder comes to my area to show and judge for us, she has nice goats. She usually brings her Saanens to show. I have had some Tempo Aquila lines in some of my goats. My buckling that broke his leg is a Miss Dee's...I see you have one of their bucks also.

    Yes the buck and two does are Missdee's-my mom's project for the French line, as all of our other goats are American. Myself, I prefer the American-I see more uniformity, milk, and dairy character.

    Edit: Also stick with Americans so I can go to Dr. Acton's place once a year or so and pick her brain, LOL. She's the best and my favorite breeder.

    Lord Willing I'll be breeding two does. Leo will be the sire, he's 100% French Alpine. The does I plan on breeding him to are Josie, 75% American Alpine, (babies would be American Alpine if they're girls!), and Latte, who is ~1/2 Alpine I believe.

    I think we are going to breed Zamia and Clarabelle to Valiant again
    We love the kids from this spring and we love the number of Doe kids
    We're planning to breed Vivaldi to a number of girls but so far he isn't interested

    Wasn't he a preemie? Could that be why?

    Yes he was. I hadn't thought about that, but you might be right.

    One of our Nigie bucks from years ago wasn't interested or ready til about 8 months- unusual for a Nigie.
    After that he did fine. I do wonder if we babied him too much. lol

    @Green Acres Farm The above are tentative.
    We are really blessed and have several bucks right now to choose from.

    I know line breeding really helps you lock in good stuff but I am still very canine oriented and I like distance :p
    We won't be breeding all the does this year. It will mean way too many kids. I have several bucks we need to place as it is.
    Plus if we do test it will be far too many does to have in milk.
    This year we just need to pick and choose.
    Mariah will be bred but we are not sure to which buck.
    Millie will probably sit out this year
    Trouble we aren't breeding- she will stay in milk forever so not breeding her.
    We need to breed the yearlings- Charlotte, Raina, & Tiff
    Jane may sit out- she kidded in June.

    No idea what will be happening with the Nigies.

    The minis-
    Bingo X Henry

    Emmy and Saffy will be bred to JJ
