Groundhog Day

2-2-16

      Groundhog Day is here.  Punxsutawney, PA is awating Punxsutawney Phil to emerge from his burrow.  This is one of the more iditoic holidays, but it is kind of cool.  I would like to be in Punxsutawney, PA for Groundhog Day.  This town has managed to find a reason to celebrate.  It is a pretty good marketing campaign because I’m pretty sure that the majority of us would have never heard of Punxsutawney, PA. without this “holiday”.

      In celebrating this holiday, we, and our partners, are offering semen on most of our stud bucks.  Seelke’s and I haven’t offered any Rumour Has It semen since last March.  SInce then, Rumour has sired numerous winning wethers and his sons have proven their mettle.  Joe Dirt just keeps working.  Rainman and Fade2Black are as proven as any buck in the land.  As good as these bucks have done in the showring, their daughters make it even better.  

       The newer bucks’ offspring are showing up in the show ring.  Skippy Red Leg’s first offspring are hitting the rings and we are getting good reports with several lightweight division winners in TX and CA as well as a 2nd place doe at Tulsa.  3 Amigo is making quality goats with several really cool doe kids being shown.  Nasty Habit sired one of the most interesting doe kids that I saw all of 2015.  Plus, there is a buck prospect sired by Nasty that will be making an appearance in the near future.  The first kids out of Easy Decision and 1K are on the ground.  The future looks promising.  Seelke’s Black Market combines the best of Rumour and Fade–massive ribcage, loin and bone combined with the wicked cool black head and markings.  

      Several of these bucks will be limited in their offering.  If you’ve wanted these genetics, now is the chance.  Don’t be caught in the shadows.  If you have questions as to how to match these bucks to your does, please call.  Have a good day.
