May 2011 - the herd out grazing

New doeling coming to Oak Hill!

Alice, Poppy, and our new doeling Mystique
Every year, the Oak Hill bucks breed a few carefully-screened outside does. This past year, Cocoa Puff was bred to Twin Harts Alice. I'm a huge fan of the Twin Harts goats, as Elizabeth keeps and breeds only the most correct conformation & the best mothers. She always has a waiting list for her kids. I'm very fortunate to know the owner of Alice, who is out of Kokomo, the best of Elizabeth's does.
So, Alice just had 2 lovely doelings - a red blackbelly and a tricolor peacock. The little peacock girl is coming to be one of our breeding does!
