Hefty Goat Holler Farm Noel

D.O.B December 18, 2018
Generation - 3rd

Height - 25.5"
Weight - 89lb

(Height and weight at 2 years old)

Noel has been one of my favorite Kinder doelings - big (for my herd) quiet girl. She's at a big of a gangly stage at the moment, but I really like her bone, body length, and pelvis. Her teats look like she will be easy to milk, as far as size and shape.
I do think she is already an improvement over dam - one I am excited to see what she produces.
Noel kidded with buck/doe twins February 2021. She's been and excellent dam! Her udder structure and teat size and placement is wonderful - hope to get fresh photos soon.

 

Hefty Goat Holler Farm Tulsi

Generation - 3rd
Height - 25.5"
Weight - 77lb
(Height and weight at 18 months old)

Tulsi is the youngest 2019 Kinder doeling, but one of the largest. I think this was a good cross - Rio added some body length and pelvis length.
Tulsi has nice tight shoulders and nice brisket extension, as well. I am curious to see if she grows into her legs and gets as stocky as her dam. Topaz is not an overly-friendly goat, so I messed with her twins a lot - it paid off and Tulsi is friendly and generally pretty easy to mess with, though she inherited her sire's chattiness.
Tulsi kidded with a big single doeling February 2021. Tulsi has been an excellent dam, though a bit loud about the whole ordeal. Her udder is snug and teats a nice size but they do point out a bit.

 

Hefty Goat Holler Farm Vixen

D.O.B December 24, 2018
Generation - 4th
Height - 24"
Weight - 67lb

Vixen is the last doeling out of my first Kinder doe, Rusty Lane Farm Aubrey. I am curious to see if Rio improved udder attachments, which was probably Aubrey's biggest fault - he already improved her withers.
Vixen is a quiet, good-natured girl like her dam. A friend purchased Vixen's littermate brother as a herdsire for her mixed herd, and I am really pleased with how long, level, and thick he is as a 18 month old. Vixen was 
orphaned at 6 weeks old - she nor her brother ever took a bottle...I tried to make sure she was getting extra groceries otherwise, but I think the too-early weaning stunted her. She likely would have been more dairy, regardless - but I can work with that!
Vixen has seriously impressed me as a first freshener. She is raising a massive single buckling that is wonderfully meaty despite her own dairy character. Her udder is snug with plumb teats and probably the best lateral attachments of the first fresheners this year.
