Sweet Tessia & Sequoia have a wonderful new home!

"Thank you so much for these sweet precious babies! The ride home went smoothly! Soft music and they laid right down lol. When we got them home we loved them up a bit and just allowed them to get acclimated to the inside portion of their new home, with grain, hay and water. We tucked them in and kissed them goodnight. I cannot thank you enough!"

Iris's Kidding 2017

One of my favorite girls, Sweet Land Iris (x Indigo Creek Farms Apollo) had her first kidding 30 April 2017.   Triplets!  (This might be the year of the triplets.)  They resemble Kadence's kids: 2 that look like their dams and Apollo's flashy tricolor thrown in for fun.  Iris stands like a pro on the milk stand.  She has a nicely shaped udder and is easy to milk.  I'm hoping her production will increase next lactation.  Update: 3.3 lbs 4 wks fresh

J11 Buckling "Chutney" black/white roaning, frosting
J12 Doeling "Chardonnay" black/white roaning, frosting
J 13 Doeling "Chianti" tricolor

Chardonnay is a favorite - she reminds me of Iris

Kadence's Kidding 2017

Sweet Land Kadence (x Indigo Creek Farms Apollo) kidded triplets on 23 April 2017.  This is Kadence aka "Shadow Baby's" first kidding.  Kadence's dam Katima is one of my best milkers and it looks like her daughter is going to be a great milker too.  Her boys look and act just like her and her spunky girl got her color from Apollo's flashy good looks.  Update: 4.0 lbs 5 weeks fresh
