I make a very purposeful effort to MAKE sure there are no mishaps in breeding schedules with the goats....errr...well....I am almost 99% sure that my little fainter blue eyed buck has never left his pen.....at all!! So to my surprise and my absolute SHOCK I walked outside to find this tiny little adorable sweet amazing little baby doeling with my young yearling " THE Perfect DAIRY Alpine doe "I saved this last year for breeding. Fully intending to breed her to my very nice Alpine buck...ahh much later this year. HOW IN THE WORLD???? What did she do anyway??..sneak over the fences and go to the movies with my little fainter in the cold of January and then go home all by herself?? I remember her in heat in January and February and then she settled right down, just like an Alpine should when they are NOT bred..because they like to breed more toward fall and don't cycle usually thru the year. Regardless, she sure is a cutey and since her Momma's name is Chitty....we might just name her Bang Bang!!
Blue eyes are a dead giveaway!! My fainter buck has not missed a beat and throws blue eyes on every baby he sires....even the ones he shouldn't! ;)
