    A lovely morning well spent by putting up Christmas lights after a chilly start in a deer stand (no luck, by the way). Everyone was out and about, so I snapped some pictures.

    Thank you! Yep two pairs. Elvis and Reba the Super Africans and Loretta and Conway are the white ones. (Conway is pure Emden, Loretta is mixed with something, but I don't know what. [​IMG])

    I preferably love Africans as I've them myself ;)
    Are you going to breed them next spring?
    I usually know what mixed breeds are crossed with but I can't see your goose up close enough to distinguish it [​IMG]

    From the picture where Reba is giving you the stare I can say that the mixed looks to be a EmbdenXToulouse
