Our First Herd Sire!

Kalamalka Pirate's Blackbeard!!!
Isn't that a great name?  I wish I had a website to link to the Crandall's who bred Blackbeard.  Laine Crandall was a lovely person to correspond with while figuring out if this was our guy.  Blackbeard's sire, Pirate, is Little Orchard bred.  They have excellent lamanchas and I am super excited to see some little goat kids out of this guy!  Blackbeard will be owned by Jocelyn and boarded on our homestead for part of the year with the promise of breeding rights.
Super excited to have found our first buck!  Can't wait to have him here!

Here is his full brother's Pedigree!

This is his Dam, Kalmalka V&V Lily. 89+EEE
