Born and raised in the Oklahoma panhandle, raising these critters to the best of my knowledge and ability.
I try to raise each breed to there specific standers to have quality heathy animals.
I concentrate mostly on the Dutch rabbits and do a lot with the Nubian milk goats.
Now I raise a litter of puppies every year that are from health tested parents.
Someday I hope to have a tiny herd of Mini Hereford cows and turkeys!
I started raising rabbits in February 2017, though I'd had some in the past 2017 is when I decided to officially start raising them. They were just mixes then, but those mixes started all of this. They saved my sanity after the big fires that year also. Got my first Dutch in February 2018, first litter was born April 6th 2018, and first pedigreed litter was born May 5th 2019.
I started with Blacks and Blues and mostly wanted to do Golden Yellows, but the good Lord new I needed the Chocolates and I don't regret a thing!
I raise them for Show and they are my babies, but I'm not apposed to the use of them as meat although I don't consume them myself.
My two main goats where also born in 2017, Beauty in February and Sunny in April!
Sunny's momma Missy picked me as her person, Sunny was my first keeper and Beauty was the first I ever picked from a different herd. We raise them for milk for ourselves, but can't keep them all, so we started raising them to their breed standard and I'm trying to get them weather and parasite resistant, It's been a challenge but I'm seeing improvement!
My second oldest sister has raised dogs since before I was born and has been raising Goldens (Her true passion) since 2004 and started showing in 2013, I've helped her for years and picked a pup from one of her 2018 litters to start my own pack from her legacy. My first official litter was born December 1st 2022!
I plan to move to Australian Shepherds in a few years mainly to show.
THANK YOU FOR VISITING!
