This weekend we took Basil to a nearby farm to be bred and got to use my new goat tote for the first time. Love it! It’s so easy to put in the truck bed and way more efficient than hauling a big trailer around for only a few goats. Basil is 8 months old, so this will be her first breeding. My plan was to have her bred to an Oberhasli, but that didn’t work out so my only choice was to breed her to an Alpine. Her kids will likely have the Ober coloring but will not be registered as Oberhasli. At this point I don’t plan to keep her kids or the Ober/Alpine cross kids from my Alpine does, but we’ll see how everything plays out. I’m very much anticipating Fanny’s kids, which will be purebred Oberhaslis. I can’t say enough about the Oberhasli breed, they’re beautiful, sweet and their milk is the sweetest, creamiest I’ve ever had. I’ve dried everybody up and am done milking for the next few months until the three older does kid in early March. Basil will be due in mid May.
