Redwood is here

Sunday Sept 6, 2015. We departed for Logansville, GA at 6:30AM, 6 hours later, picked up Redwood at Little Tots Estate, returned home at 7PM. Clipped and hoof trimmed Redwood so we could see what we got, and oh we are so pleased. I think he is just what the appraiser suggested for our herd.

Redwood Sequoia

Blogger has been having problems and I couldn't post pics.

changed our minds, we are getting Redwood Sequoia rather than Nickelodeon.

an 85 for a 11 month-old buck is a great score

after the shave

she's not supposed to be up there

our young ram, Brambles

and our two sheep ewes

was a sad day to have to put Kane down, been with the Wilcox family a long time. Sandy now has him in a pretty wooden box after being cremated.

Mike is the bomb.

2015 ADGA Linear Appraisal
We had a our 2nd ADGA Linear Appraisal and wow do we always learn a lot, can't wait until next year's. We knew our top three girls were: Chili, Rose, and Bouquet. Our young buck, TwoCharlie, scored an 85 which is great at his age.

We're going to sell our other bucks, and I'm going to go buy Nickel next Sunday. Appraisals are a way to find out what strength's and weakness's we have in the mechanics of our goats, we're always trying to improve our herd and the breed.
