So I didn't say much about this doe. Another red Tishers that I recently picked up from another breeder. Bred her to a red buck that came from me and has done well on the show tables. She's an older doe but just kindled 5 very chunky babies! So we're up to 19 red kits in the barn! I'm so excited to have reds back.

01/07/2024

My 2nd litter of reds are here! 14 brand new red wigglers in the barn now between the 2 does. Thank you Wendall Tisher for this opportunity to start over with reds. Watch for them on the show tables later in the year.

Too dark by the time I got home for better pics but I went to visit bunny friends in O'Fallon MO today. Came home with some more reds. Also have some broken blacks but these aren't just your normal black. They carry another color and no it's not blue. My little secret that you'll know about later in the year. 🤐

Buyer backed out. Pedigreed black New Zealand. Bucks carry dilute, were produced here and are 7mo. Does are proven and come from from national breeders. Have transport arranged to Oklahoma next weekend. Will work with transport elsewhere. Located in Conway MO.

SOLD, it was hard saying goodbye to Shiner. He was my first homegrown Grand Champion. He won't be my last!

I'm going to cut back on a few white New Zealand to make room for more reds. Up for discussion will be a 1 year old proven doe and an 8mo doe. Both out of my BOB winning doe from last year. The 8mo is out of my GC buck. Then I have 2 bucks to choose from. My GC can go since I'm keeping full sibling sisters from a later litter. Or another full Tishers bred buck. Both are under 2 years old. Pm for more info.

A few of our current litters. 2 of whites. 1 blue and then 4th has 3 broken blue, 2 black and 1 blue. 7 more does are due in the next 10 days.

I've been kinda busy lately with real estate and then the holidays.
We have some young berk boars, 10 weeks that need new mud holes. Also have 1 butcher hog that will have a processing date in Feb. Have a new breeder boar joining the ranks this weekend. Updates on him once we get him.
Some black New Zealand rabbits are looking to hop. 5 litters of hopeful show buns are still growing. 8 more does due in the next 2 weeks starting today. Very excited for my litters of reds that are coming soon, I hope. And last but not least, very frustrated with the 5 does that absolutely refuse to breed!! Anyway, how's your week going? Lol

Disclaimer
Any and all partnerships between Green Gate Farm and other individuals is now over as of today December 17, 2023. Any animals here are only ours. The only names affiliated with Green Gate Farm is Bob Lee and Debbie Martin.
We have always prided ourselves on our customer service and willingness to keep our customers happy in any way we can. That has fallen to the wayside in the past year and we're eager to get back to our ways of doing things. On the hogs we raise primarily berk and berk spot cross. We do have 1 duroc sow we cross to berk. None of our hogs are registered. We have fast growing meat hogs. We plan to expand our herd by adding a few more sows and we do have young replacement gilts being grown out. As always, when available, we offer piglets and fat hogs.
I still have most colors of my New Zealand rabbits and all are pedigreed. I recently sold out of reds and I'm slowly building that color back up. Reds are my passion.
This decision was made due to many factors but primarily because of issues that has been brought to our attention in the last few months.
Again we want to thank all our loyal customers and friends that have stuck by us.

My special surprise. You guys didn't think I'd be out of reds for long did you?

Welcome my new trio from Wendall Tisher. 7mo doe, 9mo doe and 7.5mo buck. The buck won BOV today at MO State Convention and got honorable mention for BOB.
Then we have a new black buck from Wendall also. He won BOV today also.
The 2 broken black does were actually produced here and carry dilute. They are sisters and out of my broken blue buck George that I lost this summer. Very excited to have them back.

I'll get posed pics of all at a later time. They've traveled a long way and I just wanted to get them settled. I'll need names for the black buck and both red does. The red buck was actually named by the judge today. His name is Yeehaw. He acted like a bronc. I won't put on Facebook what the judge actually called him the first time. FB may censor it 😅

2 6mo black bucks, carry dilute.
2 Sr black does, do not carry dilute.

Sr blue buck. This is my Esterline/Sharp buck and he's out produced himself. If you need to fix shoulders or add depth to your does this boy will get the job done! He's 2.5 yrs old I thought now would be a good time to pass him off to someone else.

7mo broken blue buck. Older Pic and I'll get current ones. He's been shown and done well. 1st in his class at the quad show in Sedalia in 3 of the 4 shows. I just don't need a broken buck as I have many broken does. He will come fully pedigreed. Can transport to MO convention Dec 1-3.

When you've had certain does for quite awhile you learn their routines. The mom to the blue doe I recently lost always starts building a nest as soon as I give her a box if she's pregnant. If not she will ignore it and later decide it's a litter box. Today she got her box and immediately started nest building! I was worried the buck Hep may still be heat sterile. Another doe I bred to him also was nest building. 10 does due this week. These will be next years show team!

If you're looking for some great meat rabbits here they are. Mom to this litter was purchased from me. A white doe who produced most of my white winners. I produced a litter of chestnuts from this doe once and wow did I wish that was a recognized show color! The red sire also came from my barn.

Butcher hogs and breeders.
Berk duroc gilt, 225-250 lbs. (Pending a butcher date)
Berk barrow probably about the same. Another berk barrow 175 lbs give or take.
5 year old berk spot sow and her 3 year old daughter. Both girls are good moms but the younger one we haven't been able to get her to breed back. Last litter was in Feb of this year. Breed at your own risk or butcher her. Mom could possibly be bred back to a berk boar and her last litter is about 12 weeks old now. Both are gentle but pushy towards the herd at feeding time. All have been vaccinated and wormed on schedule.

Broken blue bucks, 5mo. Ive given plenty of time for the fur and its not happening. Would be good for meat production. Mom did well at the shows and a sibling buck did well in Sedalia last month.

SOLD

Colton has decided to let his buck go. He finally realized that mom has enough bucks and does help him more. 8mo and fully pedigreed New Zealand.

Well even tho they aren't in my barn anymore I wanted to share some wins the reds got that went to new homes. In Stillwater 1 Jr doe took 4th in all shows. Another Jr doe got Bov Fri night and 2nd in the rest of the shows. Losing only to a VERY nice doe belonging to another great breeder. From what I'm told it was around 107 New Zealand at the show with many being reds. I consider that a win for us!! Congrats to everyone who won in Stillwater over the weekend. Wish I could have been there.

Our next batch of beef is on the way home.  A bull that will be a steer and a heifer. Help us figure out names for them.

Even though yesterday was a horrible day with my loss, I'm out in the bunny barn cleaning cages from the ones that just left. This is my buck barn and all you see is white and blue. Someday soon I'll be patriotic again and have reds back in there. In the meantime it's back to business and preparing for all the new litters that are due in a couple weeks. I guess I will look on the brightside and remember that I still have the parents that produced that doe I lost. Heart still broken but smiling.

11/09/2023

Bad news in the rabbitry and I'm not handling it well at all. My blue doe that won last month in Sedalia knocked out her feeder and got out. I found her in the front yard with a very pleased dog on what he did. If that dog didn't belong to my son who loves him very much......

Official show results from the CERBA Show in Sedalia Oct 21...
Show A
Jr blue buck BOSV
Jr blue doe BOV
Jr red buck 1st out of 8 and earned a leg.

Show B
Jr blue doe BOSV

Unfortunately there were only 2 exhibitors in blues so no legs earned. I'm proud of my blues and they will be headed to MO Convention in Dec.

Dumb question but how long do you give Jr's time to molt out their baby fur before you acknowledge they just have bad fur? I have an almost 5 mo old broken blue buck who's 3 other siblings are so sleek and shiny and then there's him who looks like he touched the electric fence or something and has looked like that since 10 weeks.
