New Holland Popples

Post Number:#1  Unread postby ozemba » Mon May 07, 2018 11:12 pm


Hello, it's me again!

I had 4 does bred, 3 pregnant, 2 surviving litters, 7 babies total.

One doe took but is small and as a Holland has issues with fat headed babies, all 4 of hers were born doa and stretched unfortunately. This was her second pregnancy with a much smaller buck this time in hopes it would mean smaller babies. She will make a great pet for someone, I'm going to see if I can find her a home.

Second doe is my best producer and mother, she built a beautiful nest days in advance (she was haystaching day 27), and delivered 6 fat and happy kits Sunday morning. Right now my guesses for colors are three harli, two black tort, and one broken black tort. But! One of the harli is very pale still so maaaaaybe magpie? I can't see any color yet and the other two are already orange tinted.

Third doe is almost 5 months old I went ahead and bred her so maybe in the fall we won't have such a rough start since she's got a litter under her belt. She waited until the last minute Sunday night to build her nest and had one single very chunky kit. I borrowed on of the kits from the other litter and gave the single kit a littermate, new mom is doing great with both of them. I think it is a blue torted harli. Waiting for more fur to be sure.

Pictures to come!

I love how these two harlequins have opposite faces.

since the two black torts are practically identical I didn't bother with more than one picture....

This is her second time being bred to my tri buck, she's a blue tort, nothing but orange/black harlequin and black tort in the first litter.

Congratulations on the babies, they're adorable! And quite clean face splits on two of the harlis, huh?

Good job! :D

It's always nice to see even splits, the doe that had the single kit is actually the daughter of the doe with the 6 kits and I kept her because of her nice markings, her ears are opposite her face, now if only she had better banding on her back. One of these days maybe I'll go in on another new harlequin with better color. Since my buck is tri I really don''t have any expectations for markings.
