I won't tell you how many 4-hour round trips I made to use this boy. I am just praying the girls are settled!
We are so grateful to our friends at Whimsy Oak Farm for letting us use their gorgeous Jr herd side on a couple of our does. We are extremely impressed by his strength and general appearance and are thrilled to bring this line breeding into our herd.
We were looking for a junior herd sire who would cross be a good line breeding on Henning. After waiting two years on a reservation, our first choice doe had two doe kids and unfortunately passed away. We had overlooked Sinclair (because she's white) but ended up with a very similar cross on dam line and a even better cross on the sire's side for the lines we are using.
Marathon is appropriately named- he's miles long! He has a lot of bone in and is very level in the top line. We are excited to see his kids this spring.
Pasha was a white dark horse. I'd thought Evelyn was done kidding when she spit out a white buck without wattles (the men here don't like them). I just could not bring myself to sell him all year and finally registered him and lined him up for a few does!
About his name- Evelyn is Chase's and we let him name kids. One of his favorite gamers is a Polish man who goes by Pasha Biceps. Pasha is a title for a high level diplomat in Turkey and our Pasha is definitely a boy.
We adore Evelyn's buttery soft udder. She has the longest, most level lactation in the herd and is our highest producer in the fall.
Pasha shows more width, body capacity, and growthiness than his sire. He and his sister are more smoothly blended and stronger on legs than Evelyn. We are excited to see how he works out!

Titan's name should actually be "Titanic" as in the colossal shipwreck. We lost his dam in kidding but were able to salvage him.
His full sister has been our highest appraising young doe to date and earned her SG this year at age two. She has a capacious, buttery soft udder.
Henning did great things in our herd and this is our favorite dam line. We are excited to combine the two.

A big thank you to our friends at Sagebrooke Homestead for letting us use Harbin. We are happy to have finally gotten some does out of him!
We are looking forward to seeing mammaries next spring and hope he adds his dam's solids to our milk.
I am in the process of getting his DNA on file. Bear with us.
