Georgia was a first freshener this year, so I was excited to see what her babies would look like and what kind of mom she would be. The babies are darling and she is a great mom.
Tam’s sire is light buckskin, while his dam is a medium buckskin. Tam also is buckskin.
Georgia’s dam is Willow, who is a solid cream color with random spotting and roaning. I am not sure about the color and pattern of her sire. Georgia is black with random spotting, roaning, and frosting.
Georgia had two kids, one buck and one doe. They have amazingly similar markings. They are both buckskin, but the buck is lighter than the doe.
Tan is dominant over other colors and I know these are only 2 kids. But, it is a peculiar thing that Willow, who is solid cream, has solid black babies. But Georgia, who is black, did not. It is definitely something I want to take note of in the following years.

Science is Fun & Genetics are Fascinating!
Please keep in mind this information is primarily for me. I’m posting it publicly in case others are interested. However, I don’t claim to know all the things. This is my method for keeping records of the genetics because I find it fascinating and I’m trying to educate myself.
