Sandgau and Chamoise(e).....

After much deliberation, concentration, and confusion (as usual), I finally picked out a 2nd goat.  It was very hard for me to decide between a gorgeous broken chamoisee and a more conformationally correct sandgau

S-Stock Exchange Annie Oakley.
Our sungdau doe kid.

And of course her partner in "crime," Ms. CJ who is growing like a WEED!

Ms. Calamity Jane
Our chamiosee doe kid.

If you are like me and have no idea what those Frenchy looking words are (I had to look them up and have them explained to me by the kind breeder at S-Stock Exchange), here you go:

  • Sangdua: black with white markings such as the underbody and facial stripes.  
  • Chamiose(e): brown or bay.  Characteristics are a black face, feet and legs.  Sometimes a martingale running over the withers and down to the chest. (CJ does not have a martingale.)
We are toying with the idea of getting one more goat from S-Stock exchange, she is a broken chamoisee doe kid and Wolf fell absolutely head over heels in love with her.  I wonder if he would banish me from the hill if that was his father's day gift? Hum...a thought to ponder!
