Briggs, 3 Weeks Old
Someone very wise once said, "If you can't beat'em, join'em." Well, we tried breeding Honey, Nilly and Sugar (twice!) and we just got our last blood test results--negative. We were sooooo looking forward to having little Valentino babies this fall and actually having our own goat milk. We also had been planning on "somebody" having a buck so Bando wouldn't be alone in "buck prison". No milk for us and no prisonmate for Bando. Rusty Repp's Mimulus doe recently kidded having been bred to Valentino. We have always admired her and her udder and like the breeding "nick" of her sire LTE Tsuga, being out of WHF Cowgirl, who is Bando's dam. We picked him up at the Monroe, GA show this past Saturday. His sire, Valentino was is in the pen directly behind him, which showed an amazing resemblance to eachother. A true "Me and Mini-Me"! So if we can't have Valentino himself, it looks like we will have the next best thing! We will be registering him as "Brigadier".
