Fun Baby goats!

Galaxy has been sold and will be leaving next month to start running his new Herem.

Regal is still available! LOVE his ears, and he has a great rump, very long, flat, smooth, level, also boasts great width and length. He’s a tad timid, but we are working with him on that.

Charlotte has 2 beautiful 3rd gen boys available, 1 is brown with blue eyes and the other is black with tan markings.

 

Our girl Holly kidded memorial day (yesterday) 2 stunning bucklings as well, will get pictures in the next few days to add to the website!

Kidding Season Spotlight: Charlotte

Breezee Creek’s Charlotte is really just a stunning doe! She can’t help but stand out, being that she’s bright white and has the palest blue eyes you ever saw!

This year was her 2nd kidding. And I must say her udder is HUGELY improved this year! Her dam had had a very slight shelf in the foreudder, and lacked a defined medial (midline) altogether. However, this year, Charlottes udder has really BLOSSOMED! Its incredible, and we are beyond excited at just how stunning it is!

Charlotte boasts STRONG lateral attachments and a high rounded escutcheon, which gives her rear udder that high rounded look with a wide area of attachment. She still needs a bit more midline separation, but is improved over her dam in that respect as well. Her teats again are a bit widely spaced, would like to see them close together, but they are better size than last year. She boasted good udder texture last year, so we look forward to milking her again and trying her on One Day Milk Test this summer.

What are we really thrilled about concerning her udder though? Her FOREUDDER! Its utterly seamless! blends smoothly into her belly and just keeps on going! Everything about her udder is SOCKED ON TIGHT, she will not have to worry about her udder breaking down and loosing those wonderful attachments, cause she has so much attachment all around there’s no stress one just 1 area!

She kidded 2 bucklings, 1 is brown with her pale blue eyes, the other is beautiful sandgau (black with tan eye stripes and legs) and little bit of roaning. Both are available to be herdsires, as they are beyond excellent quality!

If you want color, long pendulous ears, roman noses, length of body, correct rumps, and udder attachments to withstand the test of time, THESE are the boys you NEED for your breeding program!

Charlotte is another we need to get updated photos of this summer so we can enter her in the Vshow, and we are SO excited to do so! Here are this years pre-kidding udder photos though, and you can get more info on Charlotte on her page, Here.

Please check out her boys on the “For Sale” page and comment or use the form on the “Contact Us” page to get more info!

 

Kidding Season Spotlight: Princess

Princess is a really LOVELY doe! She was one of the first kids ever born on our farm, and has been a HUGE asset to our program! She’s sweet tempered, has gorgeous long ears, roman nose, good width of body, kids well, and her kids are always an improvement on herself!

She has WONDERFUL udder texture, meaning her udder is SUPER soft and she has nice open orifices in her teats, so she empties out real easy. She has great milk stand manners, and makes enough milk for her kids to get huge milk goiters, haha!

Her teats are nice and plumb, perfect for handmilking, She’s so easy on the milk stand sister Naomi started handmilking Princess when Naomi was only 12 years old!

We will be getting updated photos of her this summer when we One Day Milk Test with all our mamas, hoping to enter her in the Vshow this year.

Princess gave us 2 GORGEOUS bucklings this year, 1 of them (“The Majestic”) is already sold, but his brother (“Regal”) is still available for sale. Regal is not ery photogenic, due to being a tad skittish and quite fluffy. But he is a VERY nice quality buck. He has some of the LONGEST ears we’ve ever had on the farm, and he boasts great width, length, level and long rump, and great spring of rib! Check him out on the “For Sale” page and comment or use the form on the “Contact Us” page to get more info on this wonderful little fellow!

More info on Princess can also be found on her own page, Here.

Kidding Season Spotlight: FF Becky

BCF Legacy’s To The Moon and Back, or “Becky” as we call her, comes from exceptionally heavy milk lines. Her dam peaked at 1 1/2 GALLONS of milk in 24 hours as a 4th freshener.

Becky freshened with an udder that is super soft and silky smooth. She milks out like a dream, just like her dam! She’s giving us sweet, creamy milk every morning, and has been very cooperative on the milking stand.

Her udder is snuggly attached on all sides, with a smooth udder floor, and nice rounded escutcheon. Her foreudder is HUGELY improved over her dams who had the start or a shelf and a pocket, Becky’s udder is seemlessly blended into her stomache, with no shelf or pocket whatsoever!

We’d like to see her teats closer together, but they are a nice size for hand milking, and have very open orifices so she empties pretty quickly. Would also like to see a tighter midline down the back of her udder, as you want to be able to see a line dividing the 2 halves of the udder. But she does have excellent lateral attachments, which tells me this udder will be holding up well in future.

We are very happy with this girl and plan to keep her here a few years more as we thoroughly enjoy her sweet personality, easy milking udder, and her spots are just so fun to see!

You can see more on Becky and her pedigree on her page Here.

She kidded 1 buck and 1 doe for us this year, her doeling is already sold, but her little moonspotted buckling is available and would make a great herdsire! Need smoother foreudders or better udder texture, he’s your guy! Comment below or use the form on the “Contact Us” page to get more info about “Breezee Creek’s Galaxy” (Becky’s buckling), and check out our “For Sale” page to see his pictures!

Got Kids? We Do!

At Breezee Creek Farm we maintain very high standards for all our stock. We are always looking to improve on our current livestock, and evaluating each doe with each kidding with more and more scrutiny.

This year, we are VERY happy with what we are seeing in our herd! 3 of our 4 does have kidded so far, and are either showing hugely improved udders over their dams, or better breed character, overall structure, or production!

We’ve already sold our doeling, but have several HIGH quality bucklings available that would make INCREDIBLE herdsires!

Check out our For Sale page to see theh thoroughly gorgeous kids we have available and either comment or email us with the “contact us” form to find out more about these wonderful kids!

All our goats did SO well! We’ve been working hard to be sure we’re breeding for high milk and great form. We had 2 Does this year get their Milk Production Star Awards, and now we’ve had some of our kids get Grand’s and our Top Producer doe got best in Show!

This is very exciting, and we hope you’ll agree.

Be sure to check our exciting combinations for this next years breeding schedule!
Continuing to breed for High Milk and Great form!

Breezee Creek’s *P!

Breezee Creek Farm has been breeding for great conformation, excellent breed character, health and good temperament. But, on top of our list of things to breed for, we also breed for heavy milk production.

We keep very accurate barn records for all our milkers, so we can show buyers what our girls can do without having to guess off the top of our head what each doe really produces.

To prove our stock, we decided to add three of our Does to DHIA Milk Test for 2015. If we did a limited number of Does this year and felt it was beneficial to our herd, we could do the rest of our milkers the next year.

First Doe we signed up for Milk Test was our best producer, Durango’s Little Red. Red is a registered Grade Doe out of an unknown Sire, but we keep her because of her exceptional milk yield and quality form. She has the BEST udder and rump I’ve seen yet!

First Day on test, Red tested out! She gave 7.9lbs of milk at 3.35% Butterfat, 3.5% Protein and SCC of 8! Red, at only about 6 weeks fresh, earned her milk star on One Day Milk test!

Breezee Creek’s Princess and Cap N Bell’s Maizie, both first fresheners, will be on 305 Day Milk test this year as well. We’re very excited to see what these girls will accomplish for us. As an FF, Princess has been giving 1/2 gallon a day at 2 weeks fresh! All these girls have very nicely attached udders that we feel very proud of, and we are ecstatic to see what they’ll produce for us on official milk test!

Here are some photos of Red’s *P udder:

These kids are our first for 2015, and our boy Royal’s first kids to hit the ground.
Doeling, named “Romy,” is buckskin and retained for our herd. Buck boy, buckskin with white, is sold. More kids to come mid April!

Kidding Preparations

Our first doe is due February 28th, and since she is the first one scheduled for kidding, we have been working to prepare for the soon to come kids.

Durango’s Little Red has been prepping herself the last 3 weeks, getting a noticeable udder 1 1/2 months before her due date, and getting a huge belly.

We went through our birthing kit and did a quick inventory, finding that we’re pretty much good to go. We have iodine, umbilical cutters, floss, rubber gloves (both small and long), Cayenne Pepper Tincture, B vitamins and BoSe, lots of towels… only lacking in emergency electrolytes and ProBios (we always give a couple doses of each to our Does after kidding). So the shopping list is pretty short this year, yay!

We took a look at the birthing stall, which has been serving as a hay storage room. The excess hay was moved to our official storage room, the stall was cleaned thoroughly and we sprinkled Diatomaceous Earth (DE) around all the edges before covering the ground with a thick layer of good hay. The DE will kill any bugs hiding in the corners or crawling through any bits of hay.

The mineral feeders were cleaned out and ready for fresh mineral, the hay feeder was cleared up, and our separator (we made one for separating kids at night, or for separating mothers in the stall with their kids) was cleaned up and moved to a more out of the way location.

Shopping list was put together, the kidding stall cleaned and prepped… what’s left to get prepared?

We re-worked our feeding rations and budget to allow for new kids and increase in the appetite of expectant mothers. We upped Red’s alfalfa pellet rations from 3/4 lb/day to 2lbs/day, which she is very happy about.

Only things left to do: Make sure all goats are up on their copper (due next week), get things on our shopping list, and give Red a dairy trim end of next week.

NOTE: for those who don’t know, a dairy trim is a simple hair cut only trimming the fur on the tail, udder and legs. We won’t be doing a full body trim on any of our does till summer time, when its warmer. Why are we bothering to give this doe a trim when she’s due end of February then? Because a simple dairy trim will allow any mess from giving birth to be cleaned up a  lot faster and with less discomfort to the doe. If we didn’t give her a dairy trim, she’d end up with goopy stuff sticking to the fur on her behind that would stay there and dry, looking nasty and feeling quite uncomfortable to the doe.

We’re feeling pretty good about this coming year, very satisfied with the bucks we chose with our does, and very happy with how healthy the whole herd has been.

We’ve already added a new page for our “New Arrivals 2015” we’re SO excited! We can hardly wait to get pictures of new kids when they arrive to share with everyone!

God bless, and Happy kidding!
