Bittersweet bred to Megapixel had twins Saturday at suppertime. The doe will be retained--black with white splashes everywhere. Her white with dark buckskin markings brother will be wethered and for sale for $60.00. His name is Wentworth. Bittersweet is blue-eyed and always has blue-eyed kids. She will be for sale for $200 OBO after her kids are weaned. She is a small doe with a very nice overall look to her, but her udder isn't show quality. She has produced one doe to date with a socked-on udder. Her sire is CH/GCH Dancing Angels Cool Your Jets. Bittersweet is SOLD. Apple had a single gold buck with a white cap on his head. He is a laugh a minute and would make a lovely pet wether, but we will be waiting to see just how he matures as he is linebred on Megapixel and could surprise us. Apple has a lovely long, uphill stance, nice legset and a socked on udder. $200 buck price/$60 wether price.SOLD. Apple(who is a granddaughter of Bittersweet)is staying in the herd. Temptation(a daughter of CH South Campus Temperance and sired by Twincreeks WB Rain Beau)had a buck and doe that are colored like she is sired by Twincreeks PDF Megapixel. The buck will be kept intact and would make an awesome herdsire for someone. Times Roman is $200. His half-brother Dancing Angels Tempo already has two legs towards his CH. Temptation has a beautifully attached udder and nice overall look. Roxie had an almost solid white buck with some dark markings who will be wethered and sold. Her doe kid is brown-eyed and white with black markings. She has a nice overall look to her and will be for sale for $250.00.SOLD. Roxie has an amazing udder and is sired by CH/GCH Dancing Angels Cool Your Jets and out of Sugar Creek Show Girl who is a full sister to GCH/CH Sugar Creek Show Tunes.
Virginia had a single buckling who is dark buckskin splashed heavily with white. He has potential as a future herdsire and will be kept intact for now. Virginia has a very nicely attached udder with good teat placement and is a standout first-time mom. She has been SOLD.
Pecan Sandie has twins--doe and buck. She has already been SOLD with her kids to a lovely beginner herd in the local area.
Photos will be posted of the kids sometime later next week.
Photos of the dams are posted below along with photos of Megapixel.
I found my homestead in 1980 knowing little or nothing about what I was getting myself into. It has been an intensely long labor of love and I've learned a lot about what is important(and not)in life. My lists were burned long ago, as a person can only do so much in any given day. Shetland Sheep entered the picture in 1992 the year my daughter was born. Their beautiful, natural colored fine fiber became the impetus of my new business Winter Sky Wool Co. I handspin yarns and sell fiber, yarns and knitgoods at the local farmer's market. When my daughter was ten she decided to breed Nigerian Dwarf goats under the Dancing Angels herd name. She has been highly successful with this venture and has lovely kids available each spring. We also raise Australian Spotted Bantam ducks to keep us entertained on cold/wet days.
