Our Does

Our goal is to operate a small, power-packed herd (though the term “small” is relative). We aim for the highest amount of production with the fewest amount of does, without sacrificing structural correctness. While we show the occasional goat for fun, we prefer using objective performance programs–ADGA Linear Appraisals and DHI milk tests–to make our herd decisions and continually improve these lovely creatures. That said, we often have very nice young doelings (and the occasional buckling) available because we simply can’t keep them all.

SG Sugar Moon V Java Pepper 5*M VEEE 88 @5ys 5mos ADGA ELITE DOE 2019, 2018
DOB 3/8/2014
Sire: SG Sugar Moon Viva Las Vegas +*B

SD: SGCH NC Promisedland Sunni-Beau-No 2*M

Dam: SG Sugar Moon Sage 4*M VEVE 90
DS: SG Old Mountain Farm Black Tulip ++*B
DD: SG NC Promisedland Sia Zephyr 3*M

Java is, deservedly, our herd queen. Not only is she in the top 3% of Nigerian Dwarf milk production in the country, but she has just about the most perfect udder you can ask for and readily passes her amazing genetics on to her daughters. We were extremely fortunate to add this amazing doe to our herd in 2017 and she quickly presented us with four gorgeous doelings in Spring 2018. Then in August 2018 and again in August 2019, she made ADGA’s Elite Doe list, a very special designation indeed. She had a 911lb lactation (35lbs protein, 53lbs butterfat) in 2019 with just a single kid this year. Boy are we lucky to have this fabulous girl in our herd!

Castle Rock Firn 2*M VEEE90 @4ys 5mos.

SD: CH CRF Castle Rock Moon River

Dam: SGCH AGS CRF Castle Rock Blizzard 1*M
DS: AGS Lost Valley KW Stetson +B
DD: AGS Castle Rock Snowfluryceanothus

It is not every day a doe like Firn falls into your lap! You cannot ask for a more proven pedigree than Firn’s. Her dam is the famous SGCH AGS CRF Castle Rock Blizzard VEEE91, who was Top 10 in 2008 and 2010. More importantly, Firn’s maternal sisters include GCH Castle Rock Black Ice 2*M EEEE92 (a Nigerian Dwarf 92!) and GCH Castle Rock Snownamie VEEE90 (Snownamie was the dam of the 2015 National Champion, CH Castle Rock Flash Flood VEEE90). Firn has an extremely sweet face and very easy, gentle demeanor. She’s a delight to have around. We’re eager to work with this awesome doe in the coming years!

Elfin Acres B Liane 1*M VVEE 89 @4ys 3mos.
DOB: 5/3/15

Dam: Elfin Acres JJ Larissa +EVV 85
DS: Jobi H Jasper *B
DD: GCH Elfin Acres BZ Melisande 5*M EVEE90

It only took one freshening to see Liane was going to be a phenomenal milker. When we brought this girl home she was just an awkward teenager, but her genetics quickly revealed themselves with the longest teats we’ve ever seen on a Nigerian Dwarf and the milk production to go with it. Foolishly, we were not on milk test then, and also foolishly, we sold both of her gorgeous twin doelings that year. Liane did not leave us hanging though, producing 4 more doelings in 2018 and this time we were smart enough to keep two. By August, her young daughter Twin Pears LBB Stormy Weather took first place in her very first show and is shaping up to be every bit as good as her momma. Liane is a beautiful doe with zero flaw areas. Liane had a 666lb lactation on 7 tests in 2019 putting 29lbs of protein and 45lbs of butterfat in the pail. Liane is easy to handle and an amazing producer–in other words, she perfectly fits our herd goals. Due to complications with kidding, Liane is officially retired, and will not be rebred in the future. We love her anyway and are considering embryo transfer!

We had long hoped to add this lass to our herd and the time has finally come! Marocchino, “Rocci,” is another beautiful daughter from our amazing Java. We love her udder attachment, teat placement and length. She has quite the nice udder for handmilking. This line of does really blossoms on the third and fourth freshenings (even though the 1st and 2nd are nice too!) so we are looking forward to our forthcoming years with Rocci.

I was really not looking for another goat, but I just couldn’t let this girl pass me by. Hello General Appearance! Celine is a gorgeous doe with the perfect temperament to go with it. Celine just joined our herd in fall 2019 when her previous farm was sold and we’re so lucky to call her ours. She is the daughter of AGS Reserve National Champion Calico Creek Cinder VEEV90 and Old Mountain Farm Ibex +B. Celine was only on milk test during her first lactation where she peaked at 3.8lbs as a first freshener! We are very excited to put Celine back on performance programs in 2020 and may consider taking her to a show or two in 2020. Pictures of Celine courtesy of West Family Homestead.

We were looking for another heavy hitter in the milking pail for our raw milk sales when this gal popped up. Sing did not disappoint milking 4.3lbs at just 30 days fresh as a FIRST FRESHENER and achieved her milk star in just 4 tests! Sing comes to milk honestly with her dam, SGCH Oak Apple Seria, hitting the 2019 ELITE doe list and placing 12th at the 2019 National show for 3 year old milkers (out of 42 entries). Sing made the ELITE list in her own right in November 2019 as a First Freshener and was awarded her Superior Genetics!! We had to cut Sing’s first lactation short, but she still produced 564lbs of milk, 25lbs of protein and 30lbs of fat in just 199 days. Sing’s pedigree is full of so many of our favorites, like SG Old Mountain Farm Cernunnos and SGCH Camanna GD Moonlight Opera, to name a few. Sing is tremendously wide and deep, kids easily, and boasts a truly stunning udder. **FOR SALE**We have retained her 2020 daughter and Sing is available as a doe-in-milk**

Cassie was one of the nicest kids we ever sold. As fortune would have it, she came back to us just after her first freshening November 2019! Cassie will be staying in our herd and put on milk test for her first lactation. She has all of her momma’s dairy character and is shaping up to have an udder of equal calabir. We are so lucky to have her back. Beautiful, well clipped pictures to come when the weather warms. 😉 Welcome home Cassie!

Stormy is her Dam’s doppelganger, which is a wonderful thing. We frequently do double-takes to see who is who. Stormy proved her excellence right away, going straight to the head of the ring in her first show (1st place Beginning Junior RVDGA August 2018) and second place in the extremely competitive Dry Yearling class at the Lelia Barry Memorial Show July 2019, up against National show competitors. Just like her Dam, she is smoothly blended and in her first freshening is developing exactly the way we’d hoped.

When it became clear that we had to retire Starry’s Dam, Liane, it was critical we preserve her awesome genetics as much as possible. Starry is a long and smoothly blended doeling with nice straight front legs and her dad’s wattles. She is also the first to come in for a kiss and a cuddle. Starry stood her ground in the show ring with a third place win at just 6 months old against competition who had just shown at Nationals!

Misty is Liane’s flashiest kid ever, but what you really can’t miss is her rear width and escutcheon. Every time we catch a glimpse of her in the pasture we say “WOW.” In fact, Misty was a sold doeling that we just couldn’t let go. We look forward to seeing Misty grow up alongside her equally gorgeous sister, Starry Night!
