We were hoping for and expecting a black offspring from that breeding. Obviously it didn't happen. Though Aurora is white, her having both colored parents she is considered a color carrier. Aurora was bred to our black Angora herdsire Sundance Fiber Farm The Sundance Kid.
Aurora kidded this afternoon at 1:30
Aurora was named for the Aurora Borealis, the northern and southern (polar) lights. They say the polar lights produce colors ranging from a misty white to every color of the rainbow (also was my hope for Aurora's offspring) ;-) .
Corona was named for the Corona Borealis also known as the Northern Crown a constellation lying between Hercules and Boötes. The constellation is a small arc of bright stars.
We are overjoyed with our two newest additions to the Angora herd. Not only due to their beautiful color, but with both being doelings, they are keepers.
Quick update - Fairchild and Ciara(photo below) are doing wonderfully well.
Still on baby watch for the dairy girls.
Hope everyone has a glorious weekend.
