Thank you for your interest in our dairy goat herd. We have been raising dairy goats since 1980, our first goats being a 4-H project for our youngest son, Richie. Our herd consisted strictly of Nubians until 1988 when we added our first LaMancha doe. It didn't take long for them to steal our hearts and take over the entire barn! Our herd now consists totally of LaManchas. This is our 33nd year on DHIR test, and we have had the top milk and butterfat LaMancha in the state of Colorado for the past 29 years.

We have been on a strict CAE prevention program since 1988, and we will continue to do so because it works! Every kid is taken at birth - every birth is attended! All our kids are raised on heat treated colostrum and bottle fed pasteurized milk. In addition the entire herd is vaccinated for tetanus and entero and dewormed regularly. We feed the highest quality alfalfa available, a 16% protein grain mix, and free choice of salts and minerals.

This year has also been good to us, although like everyone else there have been some difficult challenges. The covid19 pandemic would be at the top of my list. I would never have dreamed to see anything like that happen here. Then wildfires became a terrifying reality for our state, and suddenly came close to our home causing us to have to evacuate. I thank God every day for keeping our home and our neighbors homes safe, and for our wonderful friends who came quickly to help us get the animals moved to a safe place. We were truly so blessed!

Despite the challenges of this year, it was also an exciting year for us. For the second straight year we were blessed with lots of beautiful doe kids! Our first kid crop from Marco was not only beautiful but one of the most consistent that we have ever had. And finally at the end of the summer, there was a show!! It was a quad, 4 rings in one day, hectic but so much fun! Hallie was again our little super star, going 3X BOB, 2X BDIS in tough competition. Avery was 4X 1st, 1X GCH, 1X Res. Allure was 3X 1st, 1X 2nd. Vicarious and Lily were each 2X 1st, 2X 2nd in the yearling class, trading places with each other, and Vixen was 4X 3rd right behind them. The kids did really well too, with Toffee going 3X 1st, 1X Res. JRCH. IVy was 3X 2nd and Cinema was 1X 1st, 2X 3rd, 1X Res. JRCH. It was a really great way to end the summer!!

The following sales list offers prices on kids available for the 2021 kidding season. In order to get the herd to a more manageable size for me to care for, we are again planning to sell more milkers after they have freshened and the majority of our kid crop will be offered for sale. Extended milk records are available on request.

A $100.00 deposit is required on all orders, with the balance due upon notification of birth. If the balance is not received within 2 weeks the kid will be offered to someone else. We do reserve the right to our choices of replacement animals, so, if possible, please select a first and second choice kid. If both choices of kids are unavailable, your deposit is refunded. NO refunds of deposits on canceled orders. For animals ordered after birth we do not guarantee these prices. We will take deposits on bucks out of first fresheners, but must make our final decision on that sale after the doe has freshened. We will not sell any kid unless we feel it is of outstanding quality. This does not mean that all kids sold will be grand champions, but should compete well. If any animal is found to be genetically unsound or infertile it will be replaced, contingent upon receiving a vet's signed statement that the problem was of genetic origin. All shipping costs and health certificates are the buyer's responsibility.

Thank you to all of the breeders who purchased animals from us in 2020. Our website is now up to date with all the current information for our herd. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
