This is Moon’s 2nd freshening. She gave birth in the night and we missed it. All things looked good in the morning. I was surprised to see 3 little ones.
Moon’s sire is gold with moon spots – similar to Moon. Moon’s dam is light buckskin. She also has good genetics (3*M VVEV87) by ADGA standards.
Moon had one buck and two does. All three babies are buckskin. DM1 & DM3 are very similar. But, DM3 is much darker overall than DM1. I believe DM2 is also buckskin, she just has a lot of random white patches and moon spots covering most of the buckskin pattern.
This is a total of 5 kids for Moon. Two boys & three girls.

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.
