Buck Year So Far

So far all we have had born is bucklings out of our does. BriarRose  (Nubian) was first last Monday morning. She had twin bucks. Next was Merriweather on Weds morning with another buckling. This one was an “oops” breeding by a mini mancha buck we had. This one will end up being wethered soon. After that on Thursday came Shortcake’s two bucklings.

I’m a little dissapointed that we didn’t get any doelings out of Shortcake this year or either one of the Nubians. Oh well. Shortcake will be retired this year. She can play “Auntie” to the herd along with Addie and Bluebonnet as soon as they have their babies. Nala we will sell as soon as we have an offer. Trey our herd sire will be sold off hopefully in Spring. Our plan is to retire our minis and focus on a smaller herd of Nubians for now.
