    Rebecca - "Sweetheart just stood perfectly still and leaned against me as I milked her. She was well named."

    wonderful! How blessed you are with that great bunch of kids! I know it would still be nerve-racking though.

    They did bring her in so I could see her... *finally* LOL I tend towards impatience shh...

    Sondra 2 weeks ago Sweetheart was 145lbs! She is 11 months old. She is going to be a big girl! Even my FF 1st gen MM was 115lbs! No fat, just all well grown out.

    And last yr Babee's kids were big too.. Sweetheart herself was 9lbs and Stryker was 10lbs!

    Re: So hard to be down!!!! *the* kidding!!!

    We bought that buck in part to add size to our herd...I gotta tell you that first kidding when I was sweating bullets to get those bucklings rearranged I was really wondering if I was INSANE or what?

    His kids are really, really nice. I am so glad with what we ended up with from him. Well, with the exception of there not being at least a few more does! :lol

    And they all look just like him and he looks just like his dam, Toi Dancer at Southfork...
