I spent time outside on a nice day (Monday) and got to look at and compare the kids from my 3 American Alpines! Spirit has American Alpine kids and Kendra and Claire the first generation of mini Alpine kids. I took Buttons and Burglar (Kendra's twins) outside with me and they got to romp in the yard, enjoy a beautiful day and visit the other kids. It was great and the kids were all having fun in the sun! Kids are truly olympic calibur gymnasts! Oh can they jump, twist, and fly around doing so many athletic stunts. They can run and do a stiff-legged boing-boing-boing with their shoulder leading and head turned partially back. And, the EARS FLY! They savor every moment of it too! I just wish a digital camera could do justice to trying to get some of the "magic moments" with them airborne and gyrating around! I did get a picture of Chelsie (Boer doeling) landing!
Now, I have a major dilemma! How many bucks is one allowed to keep each year? I really don't NEED 5 bucks but it might take that for a year with the mini Alp breeding and to breed the Boers too! I may just have to grin and bear it and let some go! But I have to make sure I'll have bucks to breed all the necessary does before doing so!
