ARMCH Fairlea Ariadne *D 'E' 90.7 LA EEEE 91
Sire: Stonewall's Apocalypse Now ++*S (Stonewall's Raising Arizona ++S x Stonewall's Lily Dale *D)
Dam: Fairlea Rona (MCH Stonewall's Diggory Venn x Fairlea Lydia)
DOB 3/22/99 extended pedigree LA 2008 EEEE 91
3/22/99 - 1/21/13

(Photo by Jim McGonagle) Ariadne was the first kid born here, and was always a favorite. She was naturally uphill and level--one of those does that looks great just walking around the pasture, and only became more beautiful with age. She had the elegant silhouette characteristic of Paco's daughters; classifier Sandi Liska called her "a beautiful profilin' doe." Our 2008 linear appraiser's comment was "Beautiful, beautiful doe." She was one of the few 91 EEEE does in the breed. She looked like a million bucks in the fall of 2012, but by early 2013 she was clearly failing. She received lots of attentionand all the treats she wanted until she died peacefully in her sleep on January 21. I will miss her very much.

Valley View Roanoak *D AR
Sire: OTR Merlins Gold Ingot (OTR Merlin the Charmer x OTR Juniper's Grace)
Dam: Flat Rocks Yes Virginia(Flat Rocks Count Your Blessings x MCH Flat Rocks Surprise *D)
7/13/00 - 6/1/15 extended pedigree

We bought Roanoak because of her very interesting pedigree. She has really been a pleasant surprise, and we are very happy with her. Her udder has some of the best attachments in the herd. From one picture I have seen, it looks like Roanoak's udder is even an improvement over Virginia's in height and width of rear. Roanoak has at least one daughter with a very nice udder. For more pictures and information, click here to go to her page.

I promised Roanoak when she came here that, after belinging to at least 4 different farms before me, she would never leave as long as she lived, and indeed she didn't. At nearly 15 she was slowly and peacefully drifiting towards her final reward when she was unceremoniously taken be coyotes...I never wanted her to have a moment of fear or pain, and I failed in that. I am sorry, you old cuss. I miss you.

 

SG Fairlea Clio 2*D 'E' 90.0 AR LA VEEV 90
Sire: Stonewall's Apocalypse Now ++*S (Stonewall's Raising Arizona ++S x Stonewall's Lily Dale *D)
Dam: ARMCH Fairlea Heidi *D E (ARMCH Goodwood Tom Thumb +*S x Fairlea Lydia)

DOB 4/1/01 extended pedigree LA 2007 VEEV 88, 2008 VEEV 89, 2012 VEEV 90

4/1/01 -- 12/27/14

We finally lost Clio's dam, ARMCH Fairlea Heidi *D 'E', at 16 years of age; at 10 she was still winning Best of Breed and Best Udder (Heidi is on the left in that last link, with her daughter, ARMCH Fairlea Gretchen 2*D, and her granddaughter, ARMCH Fairlea Fleur 3*D 'E'). Like her illustrious dam, Clio had a serene and loving disposition, very conducive to remembering why I have goats in the first place, as well as tremendous staying power. She proved it in 2012 by earning an LA score of 90 at 11 years of age. We lost Clio to cancer at the age of 13 1/2, a bit sooner than I had hoped, but she was my sweet girl to the end. I really miss this one. For more pictures and information, click here to go to her page.

SM3Pines JurEn's Snowbird LA VEEV 90
Sire: Creek Road Envoy (MCH Willow Creek Instant Replay +S x MCH Twin Creeks LS Pixie Fern)
Dam: ARMCH Gay-Mor Berry's Jurassic 2*D 1*M (Goodwood Lingonberry ++*S x ARMCH Unicorn Farm's Parnell's Panda *D)
DOB 2/15/03 extended pedigree LA 2008 VEVV 87, 2012 VEEV 90

2/15/03 -- 3/18/16

I'm a longtime admirer of Jurassic, and Snowbird's breeding was an interesting combination of Jurassic, Willows and Twink's Pixie. She had a very accomplished family whose titles keep accumulating--see her page for details! Snowbird is not our biggest milker nor our most spectacular performer in the show ring, but she is just so well put toegether in all categories of the score card that I believe she has a tremendous amount to offer, and she will never leave here as long as I have goats.

SG Twin Creeks AH Chiaroscuro 3*D E 91.0 AR LA VEEE90
Sire: PGCH/MCH Little Rascals American Hero (Flat Rocks Romanov x Piddlin Acres Flash Dance)
Dam: MCH Twin Creeks BW Fantasea 2*D (MCH Twin Creeks BH Bay Watch +*S E x MCH Raha Acres Twink's Pixie *D E)
DOB 1/3/04
extended pedigree LA: 2009 VEEE 90

1/3/04  --6/6/11

(Left photo by Lorene Toth) Chiaroscuro was without question one of the most beautiful and correct Nigerian Dwarf does I have ever seen. I nicknamed her "Chiara the Invisible" for her completely mysterious poor showing in the show ring in 2009, as she has failed to even earn first in her class in 4 shows and counting (yes, the above photos are from 2009, as is the likewise non-winning dairy herd --click the rear view for a link to the photo.)Like Party, Chiara had a little trouble reconciling herself to being a dairy goat, but she was more than worth the trouble. Her second freshening udder was so much better than her first that I consider her a cautionary tale about making decisions about a first freshener too hastily. Her udder is very capacious, and when full, it absolutely does not move, and the rear view is just beautiful, even when the doe is at a dead run. I know this for sure because early in her milking career, she demonstrated it to me each day at milking time. Eventually, she seemed to have decided it was part of the routine, as she made me make exactly 3 circuits of the pen before stopping dead and waiting for me. I think by the end, we were partners, and we were certainly very fond of each other. She leaves behind here only her gorgeous son by Halifax, Hallelujah, but that promises to be a significant legacy. As always, thanks Kellye, for breeding such beauties and for sending them my way; I am sorry I could not save her. For more photos and information, click here to go to her page.

Show record: 4 x 1st (out of 5 times shown as a junior doe); 1 x GCHJr, 2 x BOB Jr, 1 x GCH Sr doe (did not receive the leg because the ADGA office had reversed her tattoos; apparently this is not grounds for restoring the leg, despite the fact that the tattoos on the show report match those known to appear on the correct registration papers, and everyone agrees that they do)

SG Flat Rocks Penumbra
Sire: Flat Rocks Maestro (MCH Ponders End Minstrel Show x MCH Flat Rocks Surprise *D)
Dam:Flat Rocks My Shadow (Flat Rocks Pyrite x Flat Rocks Image)
DOB 3/13/04 extended pedigree
LA 2007 VEEV 88--2008 VVEV 89--2009 VVEV 87

3/13/04 -- 3/20/15

A few years back, when I asked Sunni to choose for me the doe kid she would keep if she had room for just one more, Penumbra was the one she sent me. She epitomizes the best of Flat Rocks; our 2007 linear appraiser, Elizabeth Henning, agreed that she was one of our most promising young does. In addition, she had a personality almost too big for her body, and a level of creativity that rivaled that of the Meg/Calliope line. She believed we should all live in interesting times, and worked to make it so. For more photos and information, including udder shots, click here to go to her page. Our beautiful Penny developed cancer in her tail area, and it claimed her much earlier than I had hoped.

extended pedigree

5/16/04-- 2/16/16

Willow milked very well, and was the first doe in our herd to have earned her star on 305-day test. Not really a show doe, she more than earned her keep as an outstanding brood doe, and her daughters are highly valued members of the herd.

Dragonfly DR Harlequin
Sire: Flat Rocks Diamond Rio E (Flat Rocks Gem x Flat Rocks Holy Terror)
Dam: Flat Rocks Salutations (Gladys Porter Zoo Leprechaun x Flat Rocks Celebration)
DOB 6/1/05
extended pedigree

6/1/05 -- 9/1/16

(Photo by Dennis Whitlock.) Harley is a nice little polled doe of pure Flat Rocks breeding, who is apparently the spitting image of her granddam, Holy Terror. She is not supposed to even be here, because both of her parents are polled--obviously a big oops on my part, but she turns out to be perfectly normal. So we seem to have dodged a bullet, and you will certainly not see a pedigree like this one every day. I usually refer to Harley, who stands 17 1/2 " tall, as my toy goat--she is really very correct, just very tiny. I love her udder, though I have to admit it is not very gravitationally challenged.

SGCH Dragonfly G Dierdre *D AR 
Sire: ARMCH Twin Creeks BW Giacomo Puccini +*S +B E (MCH Twin Creeks BH Bay Watch +*S E x MCH-CH Twin Creeks WB Madam Butterfly 2*D 'VG')
Dam: Twin Creeks WB Summer Blonde (MCH Goodwood Weisbaden +S E x MCH/PGCH Twin Creeks Midsummernitedream 2*D E)
DOB 6/2/05 -- 5/21/16
extended pedigree LA 2009 ++VV 85, 2010 V+EV 86

Deirdre is one of our nicest does, and as such she represents a teachable moment for me, because I did not see it at first. I just could not look past the power of this girl to see how dairy she really is; but judges consistently commend her on this quality. She also has a terrific work ethic; I have no other goat who knows exactly what she is supposed to do when she walks into a show ring, and just does. it. Our first senior doe to earn Best Doe in Show. For more pictures and information, including udder shots, click here to go to her page.

Doe-Sy-Doe's Honeysuckle Rose E 90.2 LA VVEV 87
Sire:ARMCH Goodwood Tom Thumb +*S (ARMCH Goodwood Kauri Tree +*S x Goodwood Guadalupe 4*D)

DOB 4/3/02 extended pedigree LA 2009 VEE+ 85, 2010, VVEV 87

4/3/02 -- 7/17/11

We lost our beloved Rosie to heart failure after we thought we had pulled her through severe pneumonia. For more pictures and information, click here to go to her page.

Show record: 1 x GCH Jr. doe

Dragonfly HFX Vesta
Sire: MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax (Rosasharn Tom's Water Tabby *S x Stonewall's India Wilkes)

Dam: Dragonfly M Kestrel (Piddlin Acres SC Maestro +S E x ARMCH Dragonfly Calliope *D E)

DOB 5/24/08
extended pedigree LA 2010 ++V+ 82

5/24/08 -- 4/11/11

Named for the Roman goddess of fire and the hearth...and thank goodness she did not remain a virgin. Vesta had the trademark stretch and style we always see in Kestrel's kids, plus the very tight shoulders and elbows that Hal reliably produced. When Judge Barb Norcross named her Best Junior Doe in Show in New Boston, 2009, she remarked that Vesta strolled around the ring like a runway model. She was always well aware of how beautiful she was. Vesta's first udder was pretty much all I could have hoped for, and I had expected her to be spectacular when she was mature. Alas, it was not to be. She had a nearly perfect rear udder--height, width, and the smooth blending into the escutcheon that is all too rare in Nigerians. The photo above right says it all on that score. For more photos and information, click here to go to her page.

Dragonfly R Jubilee
Sire: Caesar's Villa BB Rebel Yell *S (Caesar's Villa FL Brat in Barn *S x ARMCH Caesar's Villa STS Suthrn Bell 2*D)
Dam: ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D E (Flat Rocks Buried Treasure x Flat Rocks Party Time)

4/8/08/ --  12/24/14

DOB 4/8/08
extended pedigree LA 2010 +V+V 84; 2012, +V+V 84

When we unexpectedly lost our keeper for 2008 from our lovely Party, Karen Elliot of Black Duck Farm was kind enough to let us buy back her sister, and my gratitude knows no bounds. Jubilee was the more elegant and refined of the 2 sisters. For ore pictures, includingudder pictures, click here.

August, 2013, extremely stale.

extended pedigree  

(Right photo by Declan Dean)Ariadne's gift to me in 2009 was three beautiful doelings! I couldn't be happier. Aria was a tiny little peanut weighing in at just over 1 pound and struggled at first, but she is a fighter and is now doing great . For more photos and information, click here to go to Aria's page.

3/4/10 - 6/24/15
extended pedigree LA 2011 VEcV, V, 2013 +V++ 82, 2014 VVVV 86

This kid is out of a doe almost too nice to be sold, and is an interesting outcross. Typical long framed, level Halifax daughter who has matured into a stunning yearling. Didn't make it to the National show as a yearling because I messed up her tattoo when registering her. She was finally shown for the first time as a yearling at the Topsfield Fair, and earned Best Junior Doe in Show over a pretty large entry. She freshened with one of the nicest first udders I have seen yet, to go with that gorgeous body. Then she decided to present me with an object lesson in dealing with post injection anaphylactic shock, which she fortunately survived, courtesy of my son's nut allergy and his handy EpiPens. Whew! Her 2013 appraisal score is inexplicable to me...her Junior score seems more linked to reality. Sigh. I suppose she is another doe that will finally be appreciated when she is a stunning 10 year old with the same perfect udder attachments and feet and legs she has now.

Show record: 2 x 1st, 1 x GCH Jr, 1 x BJrDIS (Lynn Fleming, Topsfield Fair, 2011)

Oh, this one kills me, because I loved this doe so. She injured her leg in the horrible winter of 2015, and was permanently lame. Then she fell victim to I am not sure what...pneumonia, worms, both--nothing I did could save her...post mortem was inconclusive.

Dragonfly HFX Sorcha 2*M
Sire: MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax (Rosasharn Tom's Water Tabby *S x Stonewall's India Wilkes)

4/30/09 -- 10/8/15

(Photos by Declan Dean) Another beautiful Halifax daughter out of one of my best young does; it's hard to see how we could go wrong with this one. Finally, more accurate photos of Sorcha that show her beautiful udder and excellent attachments. With another freshening or two and a bit more capacity, I think she will be a real contender.

DOB 4/15/11
extended pedigree LA 2012 ++Ec -- +

Verdi is the spitting image of her dam, and if that holds true when she freshens, she will be lovely indeed. So far, so good--despite my poor stacking job I hope you can see why this doe walked away with a Best Junior Doe in Show. Eye candy indeed.

Dragonfly HLJ Inana
This is to show that no, Inana does not have a funny looking head (though she is polled). You know who you are.
DOB 4/15/11
extended pedigree LA 2012 ++V+ 82 (5 days fresh), 2013 V+EV 86

(Top photo by George Gould) Inana's sire, Hallelujah, is the only offspring of his late dam Chiaroscuro that I still have here, and Inana looks much like him, which is a very good thing. Freshened as a yearling with a gorgeous udder. In particular, I am very pleased with not only her capacity but with the smoothness of blending of the rear udder...I think it is nicer than my previous favorite in this area, Vesta. Appraised well as a 2nd fresh 2 year old, with the only real problem being that she is a bit "fluffy" (loves her groceries!) holding her back from a higher score.

Show record:

Dragonfly Mantis' Cricket

Very respectable LA score for a first fresh yearling. Very collapsible, milkable udder with lots of nice qualities.

March, 2014
DOB 6/2/11
extended pedigree LA 2012 +VV -- V, 2013 AV+A 79, 2014 +VV+ 83

(Photo by Declan Dean) Minerva represents a nice linebreeding on the lovely Here For the Party. She has been one of our slower developing kids, but is very elegant and graceful. On this one I have to respectfully disagree with the 2013 appraiser and go with our appraiser in 2012, who loved her; I think she has a ton of poetntial and she isn't going anywhere. Her second fresh udder did fulfill my expectations nicely--it has near pefect shape and improved capacity. She is somewhat stale and not really full in her body shot above. For more pictures and information, including udder pictures, click here to go to her page.

Minerva has gone overheight, so she has VERY reluctantly been sold.

Show record:

Buttin'Heads Tempal Gate
Sire: GCH Buttin'Heads Palimony (Buttin'Heads Pajamars x GCH /ARMCH Buttin'Heads Wedding Song *M/3*D)
Dam: GCH Buttin'Heads Zipper Pea *M VVEE 90 (Twin Creeks BW Zip Drive *S x CH Buttin'Heads Carribbean Cruise)
May, 2015
DOB 5/6/12
extended pedigree 2013 V+E+ 83

Tempal is the outside purchase I just could not resist last year. Not only is she linebred on one of my favorite old does of all time, ARMCH Buttin'Heads Bryedal Veil 2*D, but she was delivered right to my door when Tom came to pick up a buck from me...yes, she is also a granddaughter of the great Wedding Song. Tom apologized to me for her name. I happen to love the quirky Buttin'Heads naming conventions anyway, but more than that, her name reminds me of Temple Grandin, who is an expert on animal feeding methods, among other things...my Tempal also claims to be an expert in that area. "Put it right there mom, now let me have it, no, me and nobody else, that's right..." Freshened with a pretty nice first udder. Second freshening, she shows improved udder floor, with teats that have come nearly perfectly plumb.

June, 2014
April, 2014
7/9/12 - 5/15/15
extended pedigree

This beauty is a doe kid back from my friend Lisa O'Connor at Ocean Spray. Her dam was a lovely moonspotted doe out of Flat Rocks Something Wild, a doe I regret letting go of. I am very glad to have something that goes back to her, and very glad to have those moonspots! I am a sucker for moonspots. Fortunately for me, Lily freshened with a nice little udder, and she and her moon spots get to stay! Yippee!

Well, Lily Pad would insist on sticking her head through the fence, and when she was 5 days from freshening in 2015, I found her dead in the fence. I am not sure if she died before the coyotes tore her throat out or after, but it was horrific either way.

Dragonfly HLU Rejoice
Sire: Dragonfly HFX Hallucination (MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax x ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D E)
Dam: Dragonfly HFX Regret (MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax x ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D E)
DOB 8/2/12
extended pedigree 2014 +V+A 79

Rejoice freshened with a capacious, well shaped, easy to milk udder but her attachments are not show quality. As you can see, she is a sweet bottle baby, loves to be milked, and loves her people. She is a petite doe, but milks very well for her size. She would make a super family milker or brood doe.

Sire: Dragonfly HFX Hallelujah (MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax x Twin Creeks AH Chiaroscuro 3*D E)
Dam: ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For the Party *D E (Flat Rocks Buried Treasure xFlat Rocks Party Time)

June, 2014
DOB 3/21/13
extended pedigree LA V++ overall +, 2015 +VE+ 83

My favorite kid of the 2013, hands down. Very fond of socks. Gala did not actually freshen in 2014, but in the tradition of her maternal line, emphasis on MATERNAL, she stole a kid from another doe, came into milk, and nursed him. As a result her udder is rather petite, though she raised "her" kid just fine. Also as a result, I guess she could not technically be appraised as a senior doe. Why? Who the heck knows. The attachments look sound, however, and I expect a bit more capacity with a true freshening.

Unfortunately as sometimes happens with precocious udders, the second freshening shows some severe unevenness, so sadly Gala is here in the brood doe section. She is a gorgeous doe with a very sweet, loving personality, and one half of her udder very much larger than the other. If I were not trying to reduce my numbers and my workload, I'd keep this one forever, but reality has struck. If her udder were not blemished, this would be a top quality show doe. She is one of very few Party daughters that I have ever offered for sale.

extended pedigree LA 2014 ++++ 82

Melisandre got bred a little younger than I had planned, but given her girth at 6 months, it was probably for the best. As you can see now, her dairiness is really not in doubt. Nice first udder, our first Holy Bull udder to see. I may yet regret selling this girl.

extended pedigree LA LA 2014 +++ +

This kid was reluctantly for sale, but I din't really try all that hard to sell her. After seeing some of Avatar's 2nd fresh udders this year, I decided to just darn well keep her. He hasn't missed yet, and if her udder comes in to match the rest of her, I'll be very pleased.

Dragonfly AV Mithril

Dam: Flat Rocks Galena (Flat Rocks Gem x 5 Alarm Prism)

DOB 7/7/13
extended pedigree LA 2014 +++ +

Another beautiful Avatar daughter...the way he is going, I will be retaining many more. Mithril is for sale because I don't like her personality. I have a lot of girls here who have come around with full time milking, but I haven't had the chance to give this one the treatment yet, so she's wild. But at this price ($100 less than the price of a kid from Galena) for this pedigree, I think she is a very good deal all the same, so if you have to patience to work with her, I think she will reward you. She kidded in the depths of the cold in February 2015, I missed it, and the kids did not survive...due to everything else going on here at that time I did not milk her nor did I get udder pictures, but it was a typical Avatar udder, which is to say, very solid.

I lost my beloved Cassiopeia to leg injuries sustained during the Horrible Winter of 2015...so I am very grateful to a terrific buyer who agreed to sell this beautiful daughter back to me. Wild and crazy, like her dam, thank goodness, or I don't think Robin would have parted with her...not quite as nice a doe as her dam, so reluxtantly offered for sale. Much better now for having been milked full time for these couple of weeks.

DOB 1/19/14

One of the January Explosion of 2014, Evanna is typical of all the Sugarman kids: wide, long, level on the move, and stunning. Also typical of this group, wowed the judges in the show ring at a young age.

Dam: Valley View Roanoak (OTR Merlins Gold Ingot x Flat Rocks Yes Virginia)

September, 2015
DOB 2/11/14
extended pedigree LA

One very lucky little doe, or maybe I am the lucky one. My beloved old lady Roanoak kidded a bit early on a 15 degree day with this gorgeous single doe--I missed the birth by maybe 15 minutes. I found this little bit with birthing fluids frozen solid on her. I was sure she was already gone, but when I picked her up she gave justone little squeak. I warmed her up and she popped right up, nursed immediately, and never looked back. One tough little cookie, just like her dam. Finally a more grown up picture of my pretty girl, thanks Michael Covey!

Lovely Milk and Honey is headed back home and I am very glad to have her back; she has a lovely udder and will be a young second freshener this year, bred to Flat Rocks Mister Darcy (Flat Rocks Expecto Patronem x Flat Rocks HP Jacquard, many thanks to Nina Lorcini, Duá Gwyn Farm!)

DOB 4/15/14
extended pedigree LA

Another of King Asa's very consistent daughters, with that little bit more substance and wider, flatter rump that I've thought was what Daffodil needed. At least one judge agreed, awarding her Best in Show over a rather large and illustrious junior entry at the 2015 Maryland State Fair.

Dragonfly FC First Flight
Sire: Flat Rocks Funny Cide (Velvet Acres Knothead x Flat Rocks Charismatic)
Dam: Dragonfly M Kestrel ( Piddlin Acres SC Maestro E x MCH Dragonfly Calliope *D E)
4/19 /05 - 12/7/06

Pictured August, 2006. Flight was named by the daughter of a friend, who soloed in a sailplane for the first time just after Flight came to live with them. Flight was very eye-catching, and did very well in the show ring as a kid. She was the spitting image of her dam at the same age. Bred to Hunk; delivered buck doe twins 7/28/06. As a yearling first freshener, she won her class 7 in a row, and was only beaten once, by her herdmate Thalia. She was recently the sensation of an ADGA show we attended--the onlookers were very taken with our little miniature "deer" and were very complimentary of her udder. In a recent unofficial classification she earned an excellent rating for her dairy character and mammary system and an high VG overall. We lost Flight to listeria, and we really miss her--she was as sweet as she was beautiful.

DOB 4/17/05
extended pedigree LA 2008 +V++ 82

Littermate sister to our lost beautiful First Flight, we were lucky to get Declare back in June of 2007. She looks a lot different than she did in her baby pictures--believe it or not, she's a chocolate buckskin, but could easily be mistaken for a solid chocolate goat. I have found out the hard way that you can not change this doe's routine one iota, or she stops eating. She remains one of our harder keepers, and is nicknamed "The Whippet", because there is not a spare ounce of fat on her. Despite her low LA score, she is actually very graceful and well put together, and I believe maturity will reveal the potential that I see in her.

Dam: MCH Dragonfly Calliope *D E (Stonewall's Apocalypse Now +*S x Fairlea Louise)
DOB 6/12/05

(Photos by Jim McGonagle.) I really love this doe. She is out of Calli, my best goat friend, and more than that, she has that special spark and charisma that her dam had from the first day. I even forgive her for being roaned--on her it looks good. We have retained her 2006 daughter by Hunk, Merlin. Bred to Lancelot; delivered quads, 2 does and 2 bucks, 5/31/07. She lacks in the area of strength of medial suspensory ligament, and was sold as a family milker and brood doe to Cindy Bachand. Thanks, Cindy!

DOB 9/18/07

(Photo by Lorene Toth.)This doe is a tight linebreeding on Twink's Pixie, and in particular, her very well known grandson, Bay Watch. Very striking and always near the top of her class. The usual nice width in the rear that we see from both Giacomo and Chiara, very long body, very level, very very outspoken. Yes, those big ear protectors in the milk room are there just for her. Well, for me, when clipping her. Oh, I do hope she is bred this year. For more photos and information, click here to go to her page.

DOB 12/ 14/03

extended pedigree (Photo by Lorene Toth.)

Erin's sire, Leprechaun, was still siring kids at 14 years old (see our own Ceili, who is exceptional), and we love our other Leprechaun daughter, Salutations. Erin's dam, Sunshine, finished her MCH (with her 4th leg) at 9 years old and 9 months fresh. Sadly, Sunshine died shortly after that, so this doe is even more valuable.

Dragonfly FC Chloe
Sire: Flat Rocks Funny Cide (Velvet Acres Knothead x Flat Rocks Charismatic)
Dam: Fairlea Clio (Stonewall's Apocalypse Now +*S x MCH Fairlea Heidi)

DOB 3/24/04

Chloe is our favorite Funny Cide daughter from 2004, and the first kid we kept out of Clio. If she has her dam's capacity and productivity, and her paternal granddam's attachments, she should be a milking powerhouse. Now if I could only stop mixing up her name with her mother's. Chloe now lives with and is co-owned with Karen Elliot of Black Duck Farm--thanks, Karen!!

Dragonfly M Artemis
Sire: Piddlin Acres SC Maestro E (Piddlin Acres Shortchange x Piddlin Acres Concerto)
Dam: Fairlea Louise (MCH Stonewall's Diggory Venn x Fairlea Yoni)
DOB 4/6/04

Photographed 8/29/05. As often happens in an outcross, our breedings to Maestro have produced two distinct types of kids. The first type is very long boned, stretchy, and elegant, and the second type has great width and depth. Artemis does not have the elegance we usually look for in our keepers (actually, she is built kind of like a truck), but is a good example of the second type, and we are interested in how she will turn out. (For another example, see Calypso.) Art was consistently in the top third of her class as a junior. Bred to Flat Rocks Diamond Rio; delivered twin does 5/20/06. Sold because she is not really the style we are looking for, and her udder did not really make up for that shortcoming--her daughter by Rio will stay here for now.

Dam: Fairlea Ariadne *D VG (Stonewall's Apocalypse Now +*S x Fairlea Rona)
DOB 3/15/02 20 7/8" at 17 months HES 70.35 Promising

Sweet, elegant Zoe was my son Declan's first goat, and when he decided that she could move on to another farm so he could keep a doe kid next year, I found it very hard to part with her. She has faults, but when you have one of her lovely teats in each hand, you just don't care. Bred to Rio; kidded 1/9/06 with buck/doe twins. Zoe is now herd queen at Black Duck Farm--thanks, Karen!!

Amazing width of escutcheon and between the hocks on this one. She is an interesting Twink's Pixie/Surprise cross, and all of the udders in her immediate pedigree are super--here is Virginia's. Sold--thanks, Shelburne Farm!

June, 2013 (first freshening)
DOB 4/6/11
  2013 ++++ 81

I thought this was one of the most striking kids of 2011. Tuan has produced consistently beautiful general appearance in his daughters, and Galaxy is no exception. She won her junior leg handily from a large class at her very first show. Freshened with a small but very well attached udder, very high in the rear (LA score of 37 for rear udder height).

Boy, do I hate to let this one go. Not only have I always thought she was beautiful, but she has one of the most winning personalities here. However, reductions must be made, my sanity is at stake. Take a chance on her, at the very least you will fall in love with her sweet temperment.

DOB 3/16/13
extended pedigree LA

This kid was looks so much like her illustrious grand dam Ariadne thatit is hard to sell her. It's not her color, mind you...I think she has that beautiful rump structure and strong front end that made Ariadne so special. I also had this strange reaction to most of the Holy Bull daughters from this year...they were all so stunning, I had a hard time selling ANY of them.

DOB 8/5/09
extended pedigree LA 2010 VVV, V;

(Photo by Declan Dean) Very capacious milker with decent attachments but not a show doe. She does have an utterly superb pedigree, with potential for producing much better than herself. Althea is a very sweet doe, but  little shy. She is perfect on the milk stand, and well behaved; though she's occasionally reluctant to be caught, if she knows the routine she comes willingly to the gate to be milked. For more photos and information, click here to go to Althea's page.
