Willow is amazing! She had quads again.
Tam’s sire is light buckskin, while his dam is a medium buckskin. Tam also is buckskin.
Willow is a solid cream color with random spotting and roaning. She must be a carrier of the recessive black gene because she has birthed a number of black kids. Willow’s dam is dark gold with a belt and roaning. Her sire appears to be dark brown with random spotting.
Willow has no issues, health wise. And, she has never had issues with birthing. But, it feels right for this to be her last kidding. She births so many kids at a time, and they’re good sized. It seems like it could be a problem as she is aging. So, we’re going to quit before they’re are problems.
Two bucks and two does for Willow. I love that all 4 look different. She often has solid color babies like the white and tan ones. But, the other two are her first buckskin kids born on our farm.

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.
