This year has been our best year yet, we brought in some great does and a new buck, and we've sold a lot of our does off this year. We are down on does, but we are happy with what we've got. The new does we brought in this year are going to up our game, we are excited about the new genetic that we have. And as excited as we are, we can not wait until the kids are on the ground to look them over.
We've had such a great year for kids too. We have improved the quality of our kids tremendously this last year. We still had some good commercial and percentage kids, but we had a good number of good full blood kids too, and they all found good homes to go to. We also had one kid that stood out above the rest, Extra Power (XP) was set to go to a new home in Wyoming, but after a few months staying here, we've decided its time to prepare ourselves for losing Colossus. We will be retaining XP to replace Colossus.
This year also marked our first year for a lot of new things. We AI'd some does, another few weeks and we will know if that has worked. If we did not get it to work, we are not stopping. I will try anything 2 or 3 times, because we all know I mess up. We also attended some shows out of state, had some fun, and did pretty good. Met some new people, crazy people, but who isn't? LOL
The girls had a great year too. However, they said they did not want to go back to the Utah State Fair...It was too long, and they made us stay too late Sunday night. But they aren't giving up the show ring.....watch out Uintah Basin Junior Livestock Show, the girls have their kids early this year!
