Dragonfly IH Jubilation 1*M
Sire: PromisedLand Incredible Hunk *S (ARMCH Twin Creeks LS Luck of the Draw +*S E x MCH Gay-Mor's RA Nightowl 2*D)
Dam: Dragonfly R Jubilee (Caesar's Villa BB Rebel Yell *S x ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D E)
DOB 7/31/10
extended pedigree LA 2012 VVEc -- V, 2013 +EVV 86

One of my favorite kids of 2010 both for her stunning looks and for her loving personality. Actually quite an amazing pedigree. I missed getting this doe bred for 2012, which was a shame, but in the meantime she squeaked in one last show as a junior doe, and managed to win her junior leg in style with a Best Junior Doe in Show to go with it. That makes our third Hunk daughter to win BJrDIS, along with Peregrine and Verdandi. Her first udder did not disappoint either. Happy with her LA score as a first freshener. One of our young stars.

DOB 3/11/11
extended pedigree LA ++Ec -- +, 2013 VVEV 87, 2015 +EVV 87

Another typical Hunk daughter with the added distinction of being the daughter of the 2011 ADGA National Champion. I do think that personality is inherited in goats--at least, despite being a dam raised kid, Amber is as sweet and loving as both of her parents. Very solid conformation, lovely first udder, and "exciting" dairy character...boy do I love to hear the appraiser say that...For more photos and information, click here to go to her page.

Dragonfly ARG Babylon
Sire: Dragonfly HFX Ranger (Aragorn) (MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax x Dragonfly IH Electra *D AR)
Dam: ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D E (Flat Rocks Buried Treasure x Flat Rocks Party Time)
DOB 5/7/11
extended pedigree LA 2012 VVEc -- V, 2013 VVE+ 86

Going to have to work on social skills with this one. Still, she behaves pretty well on a lead and in the ring. Another doe with a slightly less beautiful udder than I would like (though I think early mastitis and resultant loss of production and symmetry this freshening didn't help there) that our 2013 appraiser was adamant is a keeper. Very strong across the structural categories and I actually feel that with another freshening or two and her full capacity she will come up in udder as well.

Dam: Dragonfly IH Electra (PromisedLand Incredible Hunk *S x Twin Creeks WB Summer Blonde)

October, 2015
DOB 6/3/11
extended pedigree 2013 ++VV 84, 2014 VVVV 88

Lovely, much like her dam, but sweet, a nice contrast! Not a particularly stunning first LA score, but advice is that she is a keeper with lots of potential. Very happy with her on her second freshening. Same super attachments, much increased capacity (milking over 6 pounds on her first milk test in 2014), and a pretty darn decent LA score considering she hade been in milk at that time over 7 months.

Dragonfly AV Cirrus
Sire: TX Twincreeks PKM Avatar (Piddlin Acres Pokemon x MCH Gay-Mor's JJU Nonpareil 3*D E)

Dam: CH Dragonfly G Dierdre (ARMCH Twin Creeks BW Giacomo Puccini +*S +B E x Twin Creeks WB Summer Blonde)

October, 2015
DOB 6/4/11
extended pedigree

Cirrus seems to have many of her dam's strengths, and all of her grumpy personality. If she also inherited her dam's business-like attitude to her roles in life, we will get along fine! Cirrus had her own ideas about when or if she should have babies, so she got herself bred both for January and for July in 2013, and September in 2015. She has thus studiously avoided being appraised, but has a stunning udder, and a ton of capacity. For more pictures and information, including udder pictures, click here to go to her page.

Dam: Springs Run Rhiannon (Springs Runs Pims Moonshine x Flat Rocks Oatmeal)
August, 2014
April, 2016
DOB 5/6/12
extended pedigree 2014 ++++ 82

Don't let this pissed off picture fool you--Riggy is one of the most striking yearlings out there. Even though this photo doesn't do her justice, I finally felt I just had to post something for her, because she certainly does not deserve to be invisible, but I do hope to get better ones once she kids in the spring. Her name is pronounced REE at-on-a. So thrilled to have a Harry Potter daughter, many many thanks to my dear friend Sunni for sending her my way!

Show record:

Dragonfly HLJ Caracara
Sire: Dragonfly HFX Hallelujah (MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax x Twin Creeks AH Chiaroscuro 3*D E 91.0 AR LA VEEE90)
Dam: CH Dragonfly IH Peregrine (PromisedLand Incredible Hunk *S x Dragonfly FC I Declare!)
June, 2015
DOB 5/7/12
extended pedigree 2013 VVV+ 84, 2015 VEEV 88

The only Hallelujah daughter I ended up with from 2012, and based on this one, I plan on having quite a few more. First of all, she is one of my very best goat friends, probably second only to Egghead at this point. Second she is a daughter of my gorgeous Peregrine, and I can never have too many of those. Named after a South American bird of prey (of course). Another young doe that my 2013 appraiser loved and used the word "exciting" about...which just goes to show, you need to pay attention to the whole view of the appraiser, not just the score. I feel this one will go far. For more pictures and information, including udder pictures, click here to go to her page.

Show record: 2 x 1st, 1 x JGCH (Bob Bartholomew, Topsfield Fair, October, 2012)

Dragonfly HEL Selene
Sire: Dragonfly IH Helios (PromisedLand Incredible Hunk *S x Dragonfly RY Topaz EEEE 89, 2011 ADGA National CH)
Dam: Fairlea Clio 2*D E AR (Stonewall's Apocalypse Now +*S x ARMCH Fairlea Heidi *D E)
DOB 5/12/12
extended pedigree

Currently my only remaining Clio daughter, sired by Helios, son of our 2011 National Champion, Topaz. Clio has had a hard time reproducing herself, but so far this appears to be the golden cross. I love that this young doe looks more like her dam every day. Named for the sister of Helios (the Greek sun god), Selene is the goddess of the moon. Not the greatest pictures, and despite my best efforts she did succeed in going lopsided on me, but I am very pleased with her none the less. If I had not failed to notice she wasn't registered yet, our 2013 appraiser would have been pleased with her as well (he said).

Show record:

Flat Rocks Arwen
Sire: Flat Rocks Dobby (Irish Whisper Harry Potter x Flat Rocks Ever After)
Dam: Flat Rocks Heiress (Flat Rocks Heir Apparent x Flat Rocks Holy Cow)
DOB 5/15/12
extended pedigree 2014 +++A 81 (VERY stale), 2015 V+VV 86

Fulfilliing my expectations nicely, thank you, Arwen is kind of a little bit of goat right now, but mark my words, she is going to be dynamite. This photo does a great job of showing off her nice general appearance but unfortunately is at a poor angle for her udder, especially since she is a bit stale here, so I hasten to direct your attention to the lovely udder shots--take my word, this is the nicest first udder I've seen since JoJo (Best Udder, 2011 ADGA Nationals). Her dam Heiress is full sister to my gorgeous Flat Rocks Holy Bull, and she definitely shows the same solid structure that characterizes all of her cousins here as well. Again, many thanks to my dear friend Sunni for sending her my way!

Dam: Flat Rocks Voodoo Spell (Flat Rocks Heir Apparent x Flat Rocks Voodoo Star)

DOB 5/17/12
extended pedigree

Yes, another pissed off picture of a beautiful doe. I hope that you can see her good points, of which there are many, although her love of being handled, at the moment, is not one of them.  This pedigree is a combination of several of my favorite individuals at Flat Rocks. Again again, many thanks to my dear friend Sunni for sending her my way!

Show record:

Dragonfly SOL Juno
Sire: Algedi Farm MH Solaris (Algedi Farm Manuka Honey x SGCH Rosasharn's TL Zenith 3*D EEVE 90)
Dam: Dragonfly B Dido (Dragonfly DR Bacchus x CH Dragonfly G Deirdre *D AR)
June, 2016
DOB 6/14/12
extended pedigree LA 2015 V+VV 88

I do not usually allow myself to keep kids from first fresh does, and even though I love Dido, I should stick to my rule...but this one was really gorgeous. And also very personable. So she stays. Good thing, too, this is one of the nicest first udders we have had. For more photos and information, click here to go to her page.

June, 2015, a bit stale
April, 2015
DOB 6/5/12
extended pedigree LA 2015 VVEV 87

My favorite of Abby's triplet does from 2012. A bit more dairy and elegant than her dam, perhaps. She kidded so late in the year that I just never got around to taking an udder picture, but I really liked what I saw.Then in 2014, she kidded so EARLY in the year that she never got clipped for a full body shot...but at least I did get udder pictures. Finally in 2015, she kidded in March, but I was determined to get pictures...so here she is. She is very similar to her dam and to her half sisters out of Willow...a very consistent line, it appears.

Dragonfly SOL Jandaya
Sire: Algedi Farm MH Solaris (Algedi Farm MB Manuka Honey x SGCH Rosasharn's TL Zenith 3*D EEVE 90)
Dam: Rosasharn BB Magpie (Rosasharn WT B-Bo +VV 85 x Rosasharn SP Honey Creeper)
June, 2014
June, 2015
June, 2014
DOB 6/14/12
extended pedigree 2014 VV++ 84, V+VV 88

This doe is little more tightly line-bred than I really like (I should have thought a bit more carefully before I did this breeding), and has also been a bit slow to grow. But I really could not pass up her very unusual color...since neither of her parents is gold (and no, I didn't even have a gold buck or buck kid on the place when she was conceived), she can only be the extremely rare recessive red color. We had seen this color once before (Dragonfly M Aurora), out of a doe that was also related to Stonewall's Little Luli who was bred to our old man Maestro. I intend to AI this kid to Maestro at some point to see if I can reproduce this color. Her name comes from a type of small parrot native to Brazil. Like all of our Solaris daughters so far, she is lovely with a very sound udder.

Dragonfly T Ninevah 1*M
Sire: CH Flat Rocks Tuan LA EEE 90 (Flat Rocks Gem x Flat Rocks My Shadow)
Dam: Dragonfly HFX Ishtar (MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax x Doe-Sy-Doe's Tiger's L'ily *D)
September, 2015
June, 2015
DOB 7/12/12
extended pedigree 2014 EEVV 88, 2015 EEEV  90

Very fancy polled doe with beautiful conformation. Tends to believe that she should really be inside your clothes with you. I really should not have kept this kid, I already have a lovely daughter out of Ishtar, but she is just such a love. Ninevah is one of the ancient cities particularly known for its worship of the goddess Ishtar. Ninevah freshened with a lovely first udder and is even more correct in her conformation than I had noticed before. Beautiful front end assembly, lovely wide flat rump, smooth as glass all over, consistently a favorite of the appraisers, 90 as a 2nd freshener. What more could I ask.

Dragonfly HLU Belladonna
Sire: Dragonfly HFX Hallucination (MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax x ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D E)
Dam: Doe-Sy-Doe's Tiger's L'ily *D AR VEEE 90 (ARMCH Rosasharn's Tiger L + *S E x MCH Stonewall's L'il Honeysuckle E 90.1)
June, 2014
August, 2014
DOB 7/31/12
extended pedigree 2014 VV+V 86

When we lost Hallucination in 2012, I was so glad that he ended up having been bred to some of my nicest does. This kid is one of my absolute favorites of the year. And Belladonna is, of course, a flower that causes hallucinations.

Dragonfly HLU Banshee
Sire: Dragonfly HFX Hallucination (MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax x ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D E)
Dam: Dragonfly RY Jubilee (Caesar's Villa BB Rebel Yell *S x ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D E)
March, 2015
DOB 8/6/12
extended pedigree LA 2015 V+V+ 83

Another half sister/half brother breeding, doubling up on the gorgeous Here For the Party. Beautiful doe kid who named herself with her very assertive (read: strident) demands for her bottle, until finally she lost her voice completely (thank goodness!!!).

Show record:

Dragonfly HEL Sulis
Sire: Dragonfly IH Helios (PromisedLand Incredible Hunk *S x Dragonfly RY Topaz EEEE 89 2011 ADGA National CH)
Dam: Dragonfly HLJ Inana (Dragonfly HFX Hallelujah x Dragonfly HFX Ishtar)
July, 2016
July, 2016
July, 2015
DOB 8/10/12
extended pedigree LA 2015 VVVV 87

(Top right photo, Sally Rodefer, 40West Nigerians; bottom full body photo, Kim Enos, Enos Farms) Again, I don't usually keep kids from first fresh does, but this is only the second Helios kid I kept, and I wanted to get an idea of what he can do as soon as possible. Also her dam, Inana, is one of our most promising first fresheners, who appears to have inherited Chiaroscuro's enviable udder in spades. Sulis is the name of the Celtic sun goddess. Sulis freshened with a remarkable udder, though it does not show that well in pictures, and this really is one I am looking forward to watching develop.

Dragonfly SOL Vireo
Sire: Algedi Farm MH Solaris (Algedi Farm Manuka Honey x SGCH Rosasharn's TL Zenith 3*D EEVE 90)

August, 2014
June, 2014
DOB 3/17/13
extended pedigree LA 2014 ++++ 80

Vireo is a lovely light buckskin with lots of white, very eye catching. So far I am very impressed with my udders by Solaris.

September, 2014
DOB 4/30/13
extended pedigree LA 2015 EVEV 89

(Photo courtesy of Glenys Gotthardt, Kyeema Ridge Farm) I jumped at the chance to bring back this lovely half sister of my favorite Ninevah. She had a very strong LA score as a 2 YO, and I am looking forward to seeing what she can do here.

Show record:
