When I first got the Saanens, I wasn't expecting to fall in love with them quite as hard as I did! They are really amazing animals. Stormy was a last minute add-on so that Pixie didn't have to ship by herself. I couldn't be happier with my decision to bring this wacko, crazy, but absolutely stunning girl home. I love a goat with a personality, and Stormy might have the biggest in the herd. It certainly helps that the first two times she entered the ring she was Jr Champion and at the National Peanut Festival brought home a BEST JR DOE IN SHOW win!
Stormy freshened with a single and a small but beautiful mammary. I suspected an acute case of mastitis but the culture was clean. She didn't come into much milk and I am hoping 2024 is her year.

Pixie's dam is one of my all-time favorite dairy animals. Just look at her...majestic, huge framed, productive, stunningly elegant and they really don't make them more structurally correct than her. She shows, milks, and does it with EASE. And what makes me even happier, is that Pixie looks JUST like her!!! A true clone and I can only hope the mammary follows suit! Pixie is freight-train long, and her rump is just unreal. FLAT, LONG, LEVEL, WIDE, there isn't a single thing I would change about her rump structure, and I can only dream of the day I find (or hopefully produce) a rump like hers on a Nigerian.
Pixie kidded for the first time with a spectacular FF mammary system!!! It is capacious, balanced, super attached, with a beautiful medial and fore udder. She is also milking super well, I'm excited to see how her numbers develop during this lactation. She was 3x1st 2xReserve Champion at her first show as a milking yearling and a couple weeks later was selected Grand Champion and BDIS!! As a FF!!
Pixie finished her championship in style earning her last leg as a just turned 2yo FF out of a group of competitive AOP! I couldn't be more proud of this doe and give so much thanks to her breeder Scott Bice for letting her come here back when she was a wee little thing!!

Allie is a doe I knew I was going to retain before she was even born. Anyone can glance at that pedigree and understand why I am so excited for this little elf-eared beauty! Besides being the cutest little alien, Allie is TALL, long, growthy, angular, and just fancy fancy fancy!!! At 5 weeks old she grew taller than my yearling Nigerians. I'm looking forward to having some fun in the ring with this little girl!!
I can't thank Kelley Hines enough for allowing her incredible buck to sire this beauty. I know she will do you and Vamp proud!
