Ransom   Fancy

Fancy's kids are expected somewhere between mid-February and mid April.  I never actually observed her being bred, but she is looking wide.  With Fancy and Ransom's conformation, I'm expecting to have some very nice looking kids who should also be good producers and have great temperments and some stand out color.  I think that they are likely to be good candidates for showing, but will also do very well in a home dairy position.  Fancy possesses two alleles for high cheese production, so all her offspring will have at least one copy of a high production allele, making them intermediate to high cheese producers.

                               Planned pedigree Ransom x Spice

Ransom           Spice

Spice's kids are expected in mid-February.  She was the first to be bred, and bounded over to Ransom with great enthusiam when they were introduced, as one would expect out of Spice.  With Spice and Ransom's conformation, I'm expecting to see improved mammary structure out of Spice's kids, with really elegant and refined heads and necks and some lovely color.  These should be some very sweet goats that would have a wonderful temperament for the home dairy.

                               Planned pedigree Rocket Science x Reason
Rocket Science            ReasonReason's kids are expected in mid-March.  Both Rocket Science and Reason possess two alleles for high cheese production, so all of their offspring will also possess two alleles for high cheese production.  I expect the kids to have Reason's structurally strong mammary system, with improved production from Rocket Science's strong milking genetics.  There is the potential for some moonspotting and flashy color from this breeding.  I expect these kids to do well in the home dairy or possibly in the show ring.

                               Planned pedigree Rocket Science x Parian
Rocket Science               Parian
Parian's kids are expected in mid-February.  Rocket Science possesses two alleles for high cheese production, so all his offspring will have at least one copy of a high production allele, making them intermediate to high cheese producers.  I expect the kids to have improved production from Rocket Science's strong milking genetics, and Parian's sweet temperament. I also hope to have improved body capacity out of this pairing.  There is the potential for some serious moonspotting and flashy color from this breeding, and I expect some pretty wild hair going on.  While a coarser coat is not as desireable in Nubians relative to the breed standard, it is nice to protect the goat while browsing in scrubbier thorny areas. (And we don't call it Tanglebriar for nothing).  I expect these kids to perform well in a home dairy setting.
