Genetics ... wow

So, Limerick kidded today. Exactly on her due date, which we love. But she only had one kid, and it was a boy, which was a serious bummer.

If you'll remember, Limmie was bred to the Big Yellow Stench back in Septmeber. The two breeds were intentionally being crossed for Caroline, with hopes to get a few "grade" does to show in dairy goat shows.

You can't show the dudes in a dairy show. :(

In any case, we got a powerful example of which genetic traits dominate in a cross.
