Edelweiss, a mini-Alpine

We are now the owners of, Edelweiss, a mini-Alpine. Two Alpines come here every Fall to get bred. Edelweiss was born in Spring 2013. Her sire was our Nigerian buck, Bordeaux, and her mother is Alpine #1 in the photo's. Alpine #2 is Edelweiss's 1/2 sister. At 1 1/2 years old, Edelweiss has not been bred but we'll breed her now. I'm interested to see how her udder develops although I may sell her if the right "homestead" buyer comes along, she should produce a lot of milk and appears to be in excellent health - a big, sturdy girl.
