A&W Farms Valentine CH Olivia Delivers Quads!

Our next doe to kid was A&W Farms Valentine CH Olivia she was bred to MI Sugar Creek WK Sally’s Max *B. He is a very handsome buck and I was looking forward to see what they would throw since Olivia’s Dam is all black and so is Max.

She labored easily however, she was SO loud. She wanted to be in my lap and was yelling into my face the entire night. It was the funniest thing I had ever been through. She had a bit of issues with the first baby and I helped just a tiny bit to get his large head out. I knew she had one more and a doe! Then another one came out right after…another doe. I thought she was finished and boy was I surprised…she kidded another buckling! Never in my dreams did I expect her to throw quads! I think my quote to my husband (who was working that night) was “The babies were just falling out of her!”

I would like to introduce you to our four newest additions to Quartz Ridge Ranch….

Kid #4 Quartz Ridge SM Gypsum

Aren’t they all so flashy! I love that the two bucklings have waddles. I love waddles. As you can tell from the photos the boys were not cooperating with their photo shoot.

Next up are my Oberhasli’s! I have a feeling they won’t be as exciting as the Nigerians due to their coloring is very predictable. I am excited to see what we have in store for our boy to girl ratio.
