Meet the cast

I put an ad in the newspaper over the weekend that I was looking for a 6-8 month old doe. After it turned out that Blacky is indeed a boy and the litter that was born a few days ago was dead, I wanted another doe to a) bring new blood in and to b) not put to much strain on Mia and overbreed her. I got two calls on Sunday afternoon and agreed to look at both does. 

On Monday I went to check out the first doe (I named her Maya). She is the same age as Blacky (born June 2013) and is a German Giant. I took her home with me the same evening. I also took home her daddy who I got for free. I am not sure what I will do with him yet, as I am quite happy too keep Muckel and Blacky as bucks and as a purebreed he is too large for me but I might cross him with Mia and then sell him.

Today I looked at another doe and took her home with me as well, she was born in August and is now 6 month old. She is a cross breed, which makes her ideal, not too big and not too small, just perfect. I have named her beauty.
