"Where we are proud of our Americans"

23Be diligent to know the state of your flocks,
            And attend to your herds;
    24For riches are not forever,
           Nor does a crown endure to all generations.
    25When the hay is removed, and the tender grass shows itself,
           And the herbs of the mountains are gathered in,
    26The lambs will provide your clothing,
           And the goats the price of a field;
    27You shall have enough goats' milk for your food,
           For the food of your household,
           And the nourishment of your maidservants.
                                                   Proverbs 27:23-27

Welcome to our farm.....

We invite you to visit our farm through our web pages.  Visit the "ladies" and "gentlemen", see their
offspring, the results, learn about our program and see what we may have to offer you.

As most know, I provided full-time 24/7/365 care for my 93 year-old-mother and her sister/my aunt in
2014 and both passed away in the spring/summer of 2015.  So we have had limited shows and no  
updates added lately.  
THAT's about to change for 2016!  So stay tuned.!

We decided to only attend two shows in 2014, The ADGA National Show in Louisville, KY and the
Mid-Ohio DGA District IV INBA Nubian Specialty in Springfield, OH, held in September.   

At the ADGA National show we managed to have most of our does make "the cut" and several in the
top ten.   We also had recently purchased a very nice yearling doe, Bryson Branch Amazon Rain
who was first place in the jr. yearling class.  The highlight for my grand-daughter Natalia, who
was my right hand that week and a huge help, was her sixth place win in the Intermediate Showmanship
II class.  She lives in Indiana and doesn't get to work with her goat as much as she'd like and hadn't
really planned to enter, so we were both very pleased that she did so well in a tough class of showman.

At the MODGA show under Joe Pilotte:  GCH honors in the Jr. Doe show went to Fancy Colors
Wizard's Wish who also went on to be BJDIS out of 81 entries on Saturday.   Also in the Jr. Show
GCH honors went to Fancy Colors BananaTorte.

Sunday under Yvonne Blosser, in the Sr. Doe Show:  GCH honors went to Fancy Colors Dear Lelia
with RGCH going to 4D's Dakota J.  GCH in the Lamancha breed went to Lost Fork Creek Jinx.  Jr.
Doe Show GCH honors again went to Fancy Colors Banana Torte.   

2015 in VERY limited showing we did earn several legs for our girls and will update their individual
pages and fast as I can.  Meanwhile some of the past history goes like this...............

We were able to make it to a very limited number of shows this year but we earned many legs, and
finished our senior herdsire, Midas.  My grandchildren had a great time helping on the farm, showing and
with their first year of 4-H while living here with us after their mom's accident.

We also manage to appraise our senior herd, and out of 15 animals appraised we only had three
yearlings fall between 83-85.  Five of our girls were 90 and above.  You will find all those scores on
their individual pages.  Here's the show highlights.

CH Mountaindale Cinder King Midas finished at the Hoosier Classic.
Fancy Colors American Beauty earned a leg and went BDIS x1.  She was also 2nd   place udder
in the OSF Sr. show over the 2013 ADGA RGCH.
4D's Dakota J earned a leg, while winning GCH at the OSF with my granddaughter.
McQuitty Farm Bananarama earned two legs and was RGCH at the OSF for my grandson.
Fancy Colors Amy May was RGCH at the OSF for my grandson, and was 3rd place ODGA
Futurity doe.
Fancy Colors Dancing W/T Stars earned her dry leg.
Fancy Colors Cool Breeze earned her dry leg.
Fancy Colors Wizard's Wish was RGCH at the OSF and earned her dry leg.

For previous year's accomplishments please visit our accomplishment page.

What we strive for in our does.......
We strive to breed structurally correct does, that excel in general appearance, dairy character, and mammary.  We want our does to be large framed, structurally sound and correct, milk well and be
productive for many years; even under the stress of traveling and show.

Our management program......
Since we strive to pay particular attention to the needs of each individual animal it is necessary to keep
our herd size smaller than most.  We have around 20 adult does, several mature bucks and a handful of
young stock.  We offer a 18% custom blend dairy goat ration, a quality alfalfa blend hay and plenty of
free choice salt, minerals and supplements.  All of our kids are hand raised and our herd is tested
annually to maintain a negative status.   Most are offered for sale, those retained are introduced into the
main herd as mature yearlings.
