Cervid: deer
Our spring of 2010 fawning started for us a couple of days ago at Independence Ranch. Surprisingly enough we have had no live bred does fawn as of yet, but we have had 3 of our A/I'ed does fawn.

I am excited about each of the fawns born and am expecting great things from them. I am not sure if Poncho has ever been bred to a deeper doe than Dolly, and we were fortunate to get 3 girls from that effort. Dolly is of course the mother to Updraft who scored 268 4/8" @ 2 in 2009.

Shadow and Grace is a special cross as well. Grace is the half sister to Dolly (same mothers) but then has Maxbo on her top side. We all know how Maxbo and the Flees line have produced. Then we took Shadow back to Grace.

Kelly is of course the womb sister to Max Thrust a Maxbo son who scored 262" @ 3 in 2009. So we took another Maxbo son named Shadow and bred them together.

Lots of production behind all of these crosses and we look forward to the future. Stay tuned for more updates as our fawning season moves along.

Thanks for looking

Update.

Today Bubbles had her Poncho fawn. A single boy. Take note of what I feel is the strength of this breeding. His grandma Pebbles is in the pedigree 3 generations in a row. This is sure to have serious passdown abilities if he is used for breeding at some point.

The better the blood lines the finer they taste to.
