Experimental and Grade Does

 I apologize for the quality of the pictures - we do not show, so do not clip our girls.  They also aren't trained to be set up, so we aren't able to capture them at their best.  Feel free to contact us about meeting them in person. 

As we develop our herd, we are moving toward all registered does.  Several of our foundation does will be available after Appraisal in 2018.  Please let us know if there is a doe that you are interested in.

We will continue to breed some Experimental does, as we really enjoy these crosses.  

 

 Dandelion is on the right, and Daphne is on the left in this photo - a couple of our first dairy goats.



 

Dandelion was born on 12/31/08, and I purchased her 4 days later.  She was the first kid I bottle-raised, and I spoiled her rotten!  She is a sweet, curious doe.  Her sire was a registered LaMancha, and her dam was an unregistered Nubian.  Dandelion is not registered.

Dandelion has excellent milk production with a nice, strong, even lactation.

Marcia is not eligible to be appraised

 

Marcia is one of the foundation does in our herd.  Although she isn’t eligible for registration, she is our best demonstration doe, so we decided to retain her primarily for introducing children to milk goats.

Linear Appraisal

4-05 VG 86(+VVV)

 

Becky comes from a LaMancha background – she is 37.5% Nubian / 50% Alpine / 12.5% LaMancha.  She is recorded as Native-on-Appearance.  She has grown into a stunning doe.  She is long, level, and deep-bodied on strong feet and legs.  Her personality is ideal for a dairy situation.  We have 2 daughters and 2 grandaughters in our herd.  All of our "R" line recorded grade does go back to her.

Becky will be milked through this winter to see how long she’ll stay in milk.

Just a Minute was given her name after she was born 5 hours after her two littermate sisters.  Last, but certainly not least!  Minute is definitely at the top of the 2014 kids – wide, deep, and level she combines the best of her sire and dam.  She was our second-highest scoring 2-year-old in Linear Appraisal this year.  She easily earned her *M designation as a 2-year-old, and has the highest production of all of our 3-year-olds.  She freshened in April with a beautiful udder – much like her dams.  I am thoroughly enjoying watching her mature.

 

Minute will be bred to Legend this fall for April kids.  Kids will be Experimental.  First doe retained.

Another of our Tacoma daughters, and 1 of 3 Judda daughters we have retained in our herd.  Chant seems to favor her Alpine genetics in looks.  She earned her *M designation as a 2-year-old.  She was our highest-producing 2-year-old in 2016, milking 361 days. 

 

Chant will be bred to Hoo this fall for April kids.  Kids will be Experimental.

Heaven has not yet been appraised

 

 

Heaven freshened for the first time this year with a stunning udder.  It reminds me a lot of her grand-dam's (Jaz).  I am impressed with her width and depth.  She is 75% Nubian/25% Alpine. 

Heaven wrapped up her first lactation after 351 days in milk, earning her milk star as a first-freshener!  I am looking forward to seeing her with another freshening.

 

Heaven will be bred to Distiller this fall for April kids.

Reny has not yet been appraised

 

Reny is another Rebecca daughter and comes from a LaMancha background – she is 18.75% Nubian / 75% Alpine / 6.25% LaMancha.  She freshened with a very nice udder this spring.  However, we chose to dry her off early to allow her more time to mature.

Reny accidentally bred to Red this fall.  She had a single doe kid on 3/16/18.  

Both Reny and her daughter are available.

Trinket has not yet been appraised

 

Trinket was so named in the hopes my husband would regard her as a little trinket and let her stay.  So far, it’s working!  She is a plain brown package that isn’t so plain at all.  I think she will be a wonderful addition to our Experimental genetics.

 

Trinket will be bred to Hoo this fall for May kids.
