I still don't have a camera, will hopefully arrive tomorrow [Tuesday]. Went to Kids' Corral Carol and Duane's yesterday [Sunday] mainly to get GinnieBea checked out because she has been having some health issues (she whines when she pees and poops) and they disbudded Corky while we were there.
Short story, back in September, Holstein found an escape route and bred GingerBreadGirl. Both are polled which is risky genetics for female offspring, however, the particular bloodlines would be awesome.
Line breeding on MCH Doe-Sy-Doe's Patches 2*D
Sire: Red Holstein - Patches grandson
Dam: GingerBreadGirl - Patches was her Aunt on dam's side, Patches was her grandmother on the sire's side.
Carol and Duane are really trying to preserve Patches bloodlines. After checking out polled GinnieBea, it is now GinnieHe. Still a darling little goat, loves to play, eat, and sleep, but not a girl. The testicles are up under the skin.
I just don't want him to suffer from eliminating, so we'll keep and eye on GH. We'll be wethering Corky, just doesn't look like a show buck but Carol and Duane LOVE the potential of polled Fizz.
