Hefty Goat Holler Farm Irene Ryan

D.O.B May 19, 2018
Generation - 3rd
Height - 25.5"
Weight - 72lb
(Height and weight as a 2.5 year old)
Irene Ryan, known as Little Sister, freshened for the first time on March 25, 2020 with small buck/doe twins. Kidded easily and quickly and has been a good dam. She is a very petite Kinder. Her udder structure is there, and she is pretty easy to milk. However, I would like to see better production. I am waiting to see how her second freshening goes before deciding if she stays in the breeding program.
She's ugly as a mud-rail fence, but she's not all bad!


 

Hefty Goat Holler Farm Jovie

D.O.B January 25, 2019 
Generation - 4th
Height - 22.75"
Weight - 58lb
(Height and weight at 21 months old)

Jovie here is the smallest of the 2019 Kinder doelings. She is built solid...I wish she was larger, but I will see what she does in spring '21 before making a final decision. She has tight shoulders like her dam, and a nice brisket extension. Her teats looks plumb but also smaller, like her dam's. Definitely like to see a longer pelvis, but it is wide.
Personality-wise, Jovie was a little goofball. She's matured now into a calm doeling with occasional silly moments.

 

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 produce.

 

Hefty Goat Holler Farm Tulsi

D.O.B May 06, 2019
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 a 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.

 

Hefty Goat Holler Farm Vixen

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

Vixen is all thin legs at the moment, but I still like her. 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 never took a bottle...I tried to make sure she was getting extra groceries otherwise, but I think the too-early weaning stunted her. But she would have been more dairy, regardless - but I can work with that!
