Spring is so close and I survived another winter. I say survived like it was a big deal, but we had the mildest winter I can remember.
Kizmet (3rd BJD '11 Convention) had a litter of 4 by Zeke (2nd SSB '11 Convention). This is her second litter. Her first she had one peanut a week early so we were thrilled to see 4 (+ a peanut) this time around.

Karma and her daughter, Kylee, also had litters this week. 2 and 3. Small litters but I'll take it!
Right when I had decided to let Slim go I found out he carries the 'cute sable point' gene. Not just sable point but cute sable point. I guess I'm glad I waited to see what his litters looked like. They are still to young to really evaluate but 'cute' is all that keeps me going sometimes.
I am currently in a dilema on moving out a buck we don't use that often. He throws tremendous round bodies but slipped crowns. We've tried so hard to cut that from our herd but I am so attached to this buck that it's hard to let him go. My biggest fear is that he'd go to a breeder that uses him once, determines that he 'out produced himself' and moves him on to someone else. I don't want to see him in a string of random short term barns. I hate these types of decisions.
