This is Georgia’s 2nd breeding season. She did fabulous again. The pregnancy and birth were trouble free. And, even though she’s a bit stand-offish towards her human and goat friends, 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 bucks. They are both buckskin. The lighter buckskin has similar coloring to Georgia’s doe she birthed last year. The other buck is darker overall – more black areas and the brown areas are a darker brown. Neither have much roaning.
This marks four total babies for Georgia. Three boys & one girl. All buckskin.

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.
