This was Betty’s first freshening. I wouldn’t give her an A+ on her pregnancy and birthing, but she did pretty well and birthed two cuties.
Betty’s dam is Georgia, who is black with random spotting, roaning, and frosting. Betty’s sire is is our main herd sire, Tam. He is buckskin. Betty is also buckskin.
Wingman was one of the kids from the first litter born on our farm. When he was born he had the coolest fawn colored hair spattered with roaning. It has lightened up significantly as he has aged. Wingman’s sire is Crash. He had a combination pattern of Swiss marked and medium to light buckskin. Wingman’s dam is Willow, who is a solid cream color.
One buck and one doe for Betty. They are both light buckskin, like their mom and grandsire.

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.
