    Cyndi, I'm going to bite the bullet and ship a couple of east friesians over :rolleyes: I'm keeping Coco, but selling off the rest of the icelandics. I can always find a ram if I want to breed Coco for more icelandic offspring! BTW, she looks ready to pop! A friend yesterday came over and was blown away by how huge an udder she's got for a first timer...she's betting on triplets, lol! I'm thinking twins, myself, but her mother had triplets this year and her 'mother in law' is a quadruplet, so there's the chance for greater numbers, I guess.

    Kristin, Spice has horns. One of the other pics shows them well. Bailey has horns as well, they're just not quite visible yet. Give them a couple weeks. Some icelandics are polled, like Coco.

    That first one is outstanding,, looks like it should be in a commerical!
    Nice looking Icelandics.

    So you are bringing EF overs. Are you going to milk?

    Milking was my primary objective all along, Bergere. I've been milking the suffolk, and she has plenty but not the right shape to her udder (my hands wear out easily.) Then I was sold on the icelandics as milkers, and dh liked their looks; but over the past year I've decided they really aren't all they were cracked up to be in that department. Rather like any other breed, some are better suited; I think Coco may have some potential, plus she's just adorable!

    So yeah, I've got plans to get a couple EFs from EIEIOmom here. But I need to quickly move some of these guys so I can afford shipping! :p So...think you need some icelandic sheep down there with your new pony? Yes...I think you do... :rolleyes:

    Great pics! Coco looks like a sweetie. If you were closer and I had money to throw around (the latter being the bigger issue) I'd gladly take those darlings off your hands.

    Well, Deb, if I did that I'd have no money for ewe's ewes! :p Although, with all these babies showing up I ought to be able to nickel and dime my way up the financial ladder a bit easier!

    <LOL> You are funny! I wish I could get sheep again. But I need a barn first as I have way to many active predators.

    Oh, yeah...let's just fill up the whole thing! Let's see, I'll take half a dozen of your babies, a couple of LGD's from Mary...what else can we fit in there? Anyone wanting to sell a baby zebra? I suppose it's easier to deal with dh's negative attitude towards all this in one fell swoop, eh? I mean, let's get it over with all at once instead of letting them trickle in a little at a time! :rolleyes:

    HMMM..... my vet knows someone who raises high quality miniature horses and my 16 year old is great in art and paint.....LOL
    There is also that miniature donkey for sale down the road ;)

    Are you getting a puppy from Mary too ?
    Perhaps you can call it a late Father's Day gift ??? Afterall, while looking for cards in the Father's Day section, some guy made a comment about a card he saw for Mom .... :p

    No puppy from Mary...but heck, why not just add it on? I'm made out of money, you know, and shipping doesn't cost much (cough, choke, sputter...)

    But it does set me to thinking...there's a burro not far south of me who probably needs a ride to my house... :p

    If you lived closer I'd give you a donkey and even deliver it! No wait I couldn't do that to ya! He's a serious brat. Our older female donkey is off soon to keep a quarter horse company. She has a very weird foot BUT the fellow taking her is our farrier!!!!
