    After not breeding all summer long, due to the heat.... I now have a litter of Lionhead babies!!! I have 5 more does due in the next week or so.... so HOPEFULLY there will be LOTS more.

    Here's pictures of the ones born early this morning.

    Here's my favorite doe.... she is the dutch marked sport. (her daughter looks just like her too). She lost a lot of her mane/skirt here, but has since fluffed out since this picture was taken.


    this is my first Lionhead.... JuJu. She produced BEW a litter or so ago for me.... I HOPE to see more of those from her. [​IMG]

    and this is her daughter....Lilly
