Pippi Longstockings

Pippi Longstockings is our latest cria, and also the last for this season. Here she is with her mother, Betsy Ross. Last year, Betsy had major problems as a mother, and we were very apprehensive about her this year, but she has lots of milk and is being a steller mom.
Pippi is an absolute doll, and very friendly. Every time we go into the field, she has to come say hi and see what we are up to.
I'm a bit baffled by her coloration, but as they say, you never know what color you will get from a breeding. Her sire is Janus' Notorious, whose sire is dark brown Victor's Julius. Betsy's mother is the same color as she is, and her father was white, NWA, LTD, Accoyo Barreda.

We are happy that birthing season is over, and are very fortunate to have had all girls!!!

Here is Pippi with Julia. They are becoming fast friends, and Julia is also very friendly and inquisitive.


  1. Oh...they are just TOO sweet!!!! I so wish I could see them in person. *sigh*

  2. She looks lovely and you are very lucky to have had all girls. We just have one left to birth now and she's not looking like she will be much longer then it will be all over for another year.

  3. How cute,
    Congratulations, looks like you have found your nitch in life.
    Have fun.
    Regards from Australia

  4. Congratulations on all your new girls. Both Pippi and Julia are so sweet.

  5. I am so grateful you live so far away. Victor and I are in love with the two latest babes. We love hearing your antics with the girls.

  6. Oh my gosh, how precious are those 2 young ladies!!! Love their names, too.

  7. Wonderful photos! They are truly adorable animals!!! I love all the names of every character ... so much personality!
