So, I've got two litters right now. One born from Hope X Chester. She had 4, 2 bucks, 2 does. One of each is blue Vienna Marked. There is something wrong with the little VM buck. His head is tilted to one side. These kits seem to have finer fur, thinner faces, longer thinner ears. The bodies seem narrower, but have a nice topline. The other litter, Georgia X Heart, 2 BEW. They have nice solid bodies, very round, with round heads and nice ears. They're eyes are smaller than the other litter.
So, I don't really know much about genetics.
If I breed Hope X Chester again, will I have the same outcome? Should I breed her to her brother (Heart) instead? I know that's a touchy subject. I don't really have another buck...
Should I keep breeding Georgia X Heart? Or should I try her with Chester?
And what about my new girl? Which buck should I try her with first?
Ugh, someone help me!
Wen to to my first show yesterday! Finally!! Got here just in time (horrible sense o direction and lots of rain) Found a spot at the back at a table by myself and waited. They did the breeds in alphabetical order, so Netherland Dwarfs were more than half way down. The show started at 10. Around noon they did a showmanship thing upstairs for the kids and I grabbed a couple of hotdogs and a tea. I kept checking on the silent auction out back where I bid on 2 t-shirts and a water bottle. And I had to stop myself from bidding on the Mini Satin that was there. (I didn't win anything)
They called on the Mini Satins and I knew they would call the ND soon (and sometimes it was hard to hear) So I moved up and squatted on the floor next to Chester. Then they called ND Sr. BEW bucks, and chocolate. So up I went, Frank opened a hole for me and I threw Chester in. The judge pulled him out, put him back in, took out Frank's (there were only the 2) then took Chester back out and gave him second place. I heard him say that he had a good topline, but that is body was a bit long. Nice color to his eyes, wide forehead amd good substance to his ears. I really wish I would have stood a bit closer so I could hear better. Frank's buck won BOB 2nd runner up BIS. Beautiful animal.
I have to work hard to beat that!!
