    Charlotte Kidded! :yesss:

    Buck and Doe.
    These are first generation (F-1) minis. We needed another line to continue the program so we bred Kiegh to Charlotte and Prynne. I needed a buck so GW advised to breed two does (similar genetics) just so we had a better chance of a buck! YAY!
    We are retaining both, this will give me a bit more genetic diversity but still have more of a line breeding on the lamancha side.
    We are thinking of co-raising. They have nursed and also have had a bottle. I don't have a good place for Charlotte to have her kids on her full time. Here they are at birth!

    The buck came out with an attitude which is probably a sign of future events. :)
