    So since my last post I've been able to have them hold still enough to see what I thought were moonspots are just white spots, which I'm ok with lol.
    I am keeping both of these kids out of Bella and fox. They are tentatively named Rapunzel and ryder

Trying to get some photos from the rear of my 2019 kids ....I think I need help these are half sisters (same sire) IMG_20190726_135038.jpg IMG_20190726_135105.jpg Nala ^ she is such a tiny girl. Will be waiting until closer to two years old before breeding if breeding at all. IMG_20190726_135136.jpg this is eva^ with her mother in the background
    IMG_20190726_123129.jpg this is Gypsy moon db freesia and her doeling. She was enjoying a nice breeze as evident by her pretty face

    Some updated photos of Eva and sarabi, loving how hey are maturing! They were not set up in either of these photos just out and about
    0A4944AD-537B-4533-A410-24C6F8EF6800.jpeg This was right as she was starting her full body shake 4A992679-EA4E-4A58-B468-6B0DD267392A.jpeg she is getting big! 290A63CC-734D-4F06-8F1C-A50C9A566DCA.jpeg Her mom still lets her nurse lol (all the above photos are Eva and her mom cami) 2A14E43D-0716-4C4F-AED0-10BB981F1A0E.jpeg sarabi❤️ It is amazing to see how the genetics shape the goat and make half siblings so different. Sarabi is a thicker boned doeling with (what I think) is pretty nice body capacity at 7 months (d.o.b. 2/22/19 as to where Eva (again in my opinion) has more length and not quite as much depth at this time (she was born 4/3/19) 76CC8290-863F-4DEB-A6C4-0A4D729C486F.jpeg

    They are going to be shown on oct 12th so I will try to have someone get good pics of them when they are set up! Wish us luck lol
    Sarabi’s Second show and eva’s First. Also planning on bringing lis, nala and rapunzel

    We went to the show with Eva and sarabi! We were supposed to bring a few more but one doe jumped off a log this morning and had a slight limp (did feel her over) so I scratched her and had my mom check on her and she wasn’t limping at 1.
    Rapunzel absolutely refuses to walk on a lead so she was scratched as well and I didn’t have any help to walk nala as my brother was sick.

    Anyhow! Eva places 3rd under judge Jackson noble in ring 1 and 2nd under judge rusty repp in ring 2! Sarabi didn’t place not sure if it would of been different if I had shown her or not. She was shown by 2 strange people (as in she didn’t know them and I met them this morning)

    These are some photos of sarabi that were posted by another at the show. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to get this lady’s name that showed her for me in round one but I am oh so grateful to her! I would of had to scratch one of my doelings if I hadn’t had help from “strangers” as both were in the same class.
    There were a lot of excellent goats at this show! Very happy to of shown along side them
