I just put up another page in the INFO section, pretty much the proper use of equine fresh. Some people just use too dang much, and your just throwing your money away. I hope it's helpful for someone!


What a winter!

Hey folks, this is my checking in and griping about all of this darn snow we're getting this year! D: It's good for breeding because the snow storms are bringing along low pressure into our area, but darn it really sucks to drive through. 🙁

Small Hiccup

 Sorry that the site has been down this past weekend, our server had a bit of a technical problem. It's okay, we are up and running again!

Another one bites the dust…

 This pastel is a freakin' PIMP!  It's only been two hours since I threw him in the tub with this girl and he's already got her locked down.  This girl is looking pretty dark right now as she's getting close to another shed, but she is GORGEOUS right after she sheds.  She almost looks like a pastel, so we're really hoping that she'll throw some nice, bright, clean pastels.

Another lock!

This will most likely be the last pairing for a while.  We've got a few more planned, just waiting until the girls put on a bit more weight.  Number one on the list is our het clown pairing from last year that we struck out on.  The female is at 1400 grams right now, so we're looking at pairing them up around February or so -- which should put her right around 1500-1600 grams.

We've also got our female spider up to weight, just waiting for our little lesser and enchi boys to hit puberty and figure out what to do with her.  Another girl we're holding back for those two is our wild caught girl that gave us our possible het pieds last year.  She's just under 1700 grams right now, so by the time those guys are ready she should be able to lay a nice sized clutch for us. 😉

Get down tonight!

Third day into the season for us and we've got our second lock already.  Both these snakes have a pretty nice reduced/banded pattern going on.  Should produce some good looking possible het. caramels.  Rock on!

Second lock!

Make a little love…

First lock of the season! I've finally discovered something that Michigan winters are good for -- ball python breeding! Just put them together last night and they were already locked up this morning when I checked on them before work. This pairing is a male pastel to a female hypo, but there's a catch -- this pastel is a 66% possible heterozygous hypo. Keep your fingers crossed!

First lock of the season!

Do a little dance…

Our breeding season is FINALLY getting started. I started three pairings tonight, and there's still a few more girls that need to pack on some weight before we pair them up. Should be a great season for us! I should have the Breeding Projects page updated sometime this week -- depending on if I see any locks or not. In other news, I'm slowly getting everything on the site flipped over to run on WordPress. It's great for setting up news posts and simple galleries, but just a total pain in the rear for other things.
