Hopes for the season

Well, I'm still sick, and in my fever, I have had some revelations about what I want from the season for myself and for future projects. This is a little different than the New Years hopes, as this is more basic in scope.


I just sent out the last G Stripe, and I realized that I really really really wanted to have one of my own.

I was kinda bummed that I didn't get to have my holdback female. So this year, come hell or high water, I will get my female.


I finally succumed to getting into that project, and I have to say, I am excited to see some Pastel Pieds pipping out. I have my Pastel het Male paired up with my proven hets from last year. I've only given him two females, so that better be enough for a few Pastel Pieds. Here's to hoping!


I have always loved the Spider Pins stuff, and I am very excited to be able to work them in together this year. I have the Lemon Blast to a Spider, and I am hoping that will be enough! And of course, Super Pastels are always great. I am also hoping for the Super Pewter, but it may not happen (only one pairing), so I am trying not to get my hopes up too high.

Now for the next season, I am tempted to get into a few new things, but we'll have to see what happens. I really like Spotnoses, and I would like to get into them. Also, I would love to get some cool combo stuff, but as for now, we'll have to see what I come up with myself, and go from there.

How about you guys out there? What are your next planned pickups?

I need ideas..

There is a local show this weekend, so maybe that will be a good place to start for ideas as well.

Have a fantastic day, my friends!!

Oh, no!!! Sick bad! :-[ I hope you get to feeling better soon!!

I just LOVE my new G-stripe! He's such a lovely little boy! I hope you hatch your female G-stripe this year!

Hmmm, my next planned pick-ups.... Well, I have a lot planned, but I don't know for sure which I'll choose to get next, especially since I typically wait until I find the "perfect" specimen.

Here are those highest on my list: a female Spinner, Super Pastel, and/or Calico for my co-dom project; a female Butter, Russo, and/or Mocha for my BEL project; and a male/female Clown/het pair for the recessive project. I shouldn't buy any new snakes until late this year, though (kinda went overboard last year, hee hee).

I may have to break my snake fast if you end up with some female Spinners available this year, though! :D

I think I'm starting to want to mess with mystics and hidden genes in the BEL complex. And maybe wanting to see what happens if you throw a sable or a chocolate in there for fun.

Ooooohhhhh, I want a black axanthic. I don't have any plans for a black axanthic, except maybe mixing it with a pied or a lavender, but ooooooohhhh I want one. And I kind of want an orange dream, but I want to see what an adult looks like before I start throwing $1k+ at it. Oz never shows the adults, and that worries me.

... but those are all long term plans. Short term, this coming summer, I'm going to need to buy a pied male, and I REALLY REALLY want it to be a Kobylka line, not a Kahl line--because I like my recessives! And it's just too easy to inbreed. I wish I had money to throw down outright on a Kobylka line pastel pied, but that's not going to happen.
