Texas Ranger

Texas Ranger, originally uploaded by Jenniferschwalm.

This is our "go to" guy. Texas Ranger is what keeps Goodness Grows Farm growing (sorry for the pun). He's a good ole' stud - he's servicing about 35 girls for us - has been at his job since July. He did the majority of his work this summer - a time when most "experts" say they won't - but judging from the fat bellies in our barn, we're guessing he did his job pretty thoroughly again this year. We only had 3 ladies not kid last year, so looks like we're in for another busy kidding season - which is going to be here before we know it! Last year we had babies mid-December. He is a really nice buck - very even tempered and never, ever mean. I used to worry about being in the barn with him b/c of his size (he's a good 350# or so) but he is very docile. Guess he knows that the ladies like a gentleman!
