Go to North Forest Farm on Facebook to see more.  Sunny has been long awaited!  I don't know how many years I've been looking at Green Gables' website, hoping to one day own a buck from Eliya.  We're so happy to finally have him here on our farm.  He is sure to add great things to the milk production, udder conformation and ears of our kids to come.  We hope that by late fall, he will be ready to breed a few of our girls.  It's going to be a long wait for spring next year, let me tell you!  I'm still trying to figure out if the percentages I have question marks after are correct.  Will update when I know.

Also introducing North Forest Farm Odin

He was such a delightful surprise for us!  We haven't had this color combination yet, and his breed character is the best we've gotten as well.  He was the largest kid born on our farm as well, weighing in at 7.5 pounds.  He's so sweet and fun!  We're enjoying him as much as we can while he's small...and clean. :)  We plan to breed him to Freyja this late fall/winter.  They have the same base coloring, which is my favorite; sundgau or black and tan.  Odin's base color is so broken by the white that it's hard to realize it's there.  He's such a flashy little guy.  I hope we get some more kids with his and Freyja's coloing.  I guess I'd better hope for the good conformation to pass along over the coloring though! :)
