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 2017.  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.  

We are having technical difficulties - we will update this page as soon as we can get the issues resolved.  Feel fee to contact us to receive our herd brochure in the meantime.

 

 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.

Heartbeat is a combination of our best Nubian and Alpine lines.  She is one of triplet does - we have retained her and 1 of her sisters as we couldn't decide between them.  Heartbeat is such a sweet, easy-going doe, like most of Tacoma's daughters.  She is easy to milk, gets along with everyone, and has great conformation to top it all off.  She is currently on track to earn her *M designation this year as a 2-year-old.

Heartbeat is bred to Red for April kids.  Kids will be Experimental.

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 is currently on track to earn her *M designation this year as a 2-year-old, and has the highest production of all of our 2-year-olds.  She freshened in April with a beautiful udder ? much like her dams.  I am thoroughly enjoying watching her mature.

Minute is bred to Legend for April kids.  Kids will be Experimental.

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.

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.

Becky is bred to Tacoma for April kids, in hopes of getting another doe like our stunning Rhonda Lee (see below).

Dakota may come from unregistered stock, but she's a stand-out in our herd.  She has been recorded as Native-on-Appearance.  She may not be the prettiest doe in the barn, but she produces the most milk, and is the hardiest doe we have.  She also tends to have the lowest SCC in the herd.  Her dam also carried these awesome qualities and we have her DHI records for the years she was a part of our herd.  Dakota easily earned her milk star as a 2-year-old, and should make the Breed Leader list with her 2016 lactation.

Dakota will be bred to Tacoma this fall in hopes of repeating the breeding that produced our awesome Dallas.

Dallas is a stunning young doe.  She descends from one of my first dairy goats.  Our ‘D’ line is an exceptional milk-producing line.  Dakota replaced her dam, Dandelion, as our top producer as a 2-year-old, second freshener.  And this was over mature Alpine does and an older paternal sister.  I’m very excited about this cross, and was thrilled when Dakota had a doeling.  Time will tell, but I think Dallas may well be one of our top-producing Tacoma daughters.

Dallas will be bred back to Tacoma this fall for April kids.

Chickadee is a dry yearling.  She’s a stunning doe already, much like her dam and granddam.  She is 75% Nubian/25% Alpine. 

Chickadee will be bred back to Red this fall for March kids.  Kids should be registerable as American Nubian.

Heaven will be bred to Red this fall for March kids.  Kids should be registerable as American Nubian.
