Mim, 10 years old!


Mim was born on the 5th of June, 2001. Her sire was Benjamin (1998-2010, Mingo/Cleopatra) and her dam, Tina (1999-2009, Puff/Svarta) . Apart from a nasty bite in her nose once, she's never been sick a day in her life so far.

Mim has never been bred for kits and she's my oldest jill so far to remain intact. She's part of a small group of jills that I'm testing out leaving intact. As it has turned out, I'm not entirely in favour of this for a number of reasons, so I may try out chemical castration next year depending on the situation. So far, Mim has averaged one cycle per year and has been induced by false breeding or hCG.

Update: Mim passed away on Dec 2, 2011 at 10 years, 6 months and 12 days of age. R.I.P. sweet little Mim.

At 10 years of age:
