In 2007, Becky selected Feleene out of herd of many goats because of her flashy color and outstanding conformation.  She has great depth of body, nice top line, and tight shoulders.  Feleene has the most beautifully shaped head and neck in our herd.  She's tall, barely meets the ADGA height limit of 22 1/2", and very strong.  She has a pretty nice udder, but could use a little more capacity and shape in the rear udder.  Her teats are oriented nearly straight down, but are placed a little wide.  When we first brought her home, Feleene was a wild one and quickly established herself as the herd's "queen."  After a lot of handling and a season in the rings at the local fairs, she became, and remains, one of the most gentle and loving does in our herd.  She's hunched up in this photo, unfortunately, so when we can, we'll get a better photo of her in here.  Her top line is flat and actually slightly sloped upward toward her sharp withers - very nice.  She's now retired.

***We lost Feleene this kidding season (2012) due to kidding complications.  She has made a huge impact on our farm and will be very dearly missed.

Camanna DR Zinfandel Gold

DOB: 3/13/2004-4/2011                                                  AGS/ADGA

 

We fell in love with Zinfandel after seeing her on Camanna's website, but never thought we would have the opportunity to own her.  She has kidded some beautiful champions, like Camanna's Shiraz.  Zinfandel was a strong doe, had a gorgeous red color, and had excellent dairy conformation and body capacity.  Her udder had nice capacity, correct teat placement, but lacked tight attachment.  Very unfortunately, we sadly and unexpectedly lost Zinfandel in April 2011.  We have high hopes for BD Sangria, one of her 2010 retained doelings.  We dearly miss Zinfy.

Joy fits her name very well - she's very spirited.  When she came to us in 2009, Joy didn't want anyone to touch her and would run away when we approached her.  She's come a long way and now seeks attention from us.  Joy is a more short bodied goat, has nice conformation and a very correct udder (one photo here shows her a bit uneven - bad timing for a photo, as she had just nursed).  We're still working on her behavior in the show ring, as she's usually more like a bucking bronco.  She's settling down, though.

Bunny is the first doe born on our farm.  She is very strong and full of personality, for sure.  Judges and appraisers have liked her body capacity and dairy qualities.  She has one of more capacious udders in our herd.  She has done well in the show rings.  We retained her doeling in 2009 (Delight), and Delight kidded beautiful twins this year.  If I could change anything on Bunny, I'd improve her udder shape and teat orientation, as they point a bit forward.

Hallie is a very flashy black and white doe who has a remarkable udder.  Although it lacks medial suspension, she has great capacity.  She's a little steep in the rump, but is very refined and is an excellent example of dairy character.  She is a great show goat and loves to be in the ring.  Her dam, Dakota Wind, is a highly decorated champion and we are hoping to benefit our herd from her pedigree with a nice doeling or two.

Clara is another one of our sweethearts that's easy to milk and loves attention.  She has long teats, strength of body and good body capacity, but has room for general appearance.  With that said, she shaped up very well in August and won the 2011 Evergreen State Fair ADGA Grand Champion Sr. Nigerian Dwarf Doe and Best Udder!  She easily kidded beautiful bucklings this year as a first freshener.  We look forward to seeing what she looks like next year!

Beauty is a sweetheart of a doe.  A first freshener, she has a correct udder in shape, which is a definite improvement over her doe, Pepperanne, but it's on the small side. If she gains capacity next year, she will be very nice.  Her coloring isn't represented well in these photos, as they were taken just after shaving.  She's a nice brown/black buckskin in color.  Beauty's doeling this year won Junior Grand Champion at the Stanwood/Camano fair.

Blue Bear SB Raquel Welch

 

 

DOB: 3/16/2010      Height: 18 1/2             Blue eyes                     ADGA           

 

 

Raquel is a beautiful, strong doe with great top line and nice front end.  She inherited her dam's length of body and although her mammary system improved over her dam's, it's on the small side.  We are expecting that her udder will gain capacity with her second freshening.  Raquel is our noise maker and lets us know (the neighbors too) when it is time for her to get milked.
