Zeus in May 2013

Zues talking to a doe in 2013

We were very lucky to get this great guy - thank you, Tivio Farm for consigning him to the AGPA 2009 Quad Show auction!  His dam is a lovely doe who shows and milks.  He is long, level and wide with a gorgeous head and has passed these traits on to his kids.  We were also very excited to get this information from ADGA:  "Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you that a buck you own has qualified for the ADGA Sire Development Program (ADGA-SDP). According to performance records, he has a calculated Estimated Transmitting Ability (ETA) of 28 for Production over Type (2:1) and 18 for Type over Production (1:2)."
We have shifted our Saanens more toward the purebreds so we plan to offer Zeus for sale in the fall after breeding a few does to him.  He is huge and healthy, a beautiful buck, but will not have much work to do here for us.  Please contact me if you are interested in him.
Well, we did sell Zeus.  However, he wasn't doing well when he left and he wouldn't eat at his new home.  So, he has come back.  If he recovers and becomes breeding sound, he may be for sale at a later date.

Thanks to JLT Ranch for selling us this great Purebred buck. He is long and tall with a great set of legs and feet. His kids have been winning in the show ring and we are liking the udders on his daughters.  Although Moonshine yearling daughters are often gawky and appear to be all legs, when they mature they are well worth waiting for.  In October of 2015, Moonshine moved to a new home where he is hopefully going to be collected for use in the future.

In 2015, we realized that Moonshine was almost 9 years old and was really starting to age so we began to look for another purebred buck.  Jamie Burkes Two-Ceders animals have always done great things for us so I gave him a call.  Jamie sent Frank to AR for us, finding him a ride with some neighbors who were in MO for a show.  Jamie warned me that Frank hadn't been handled much and he is pretty leery of people.  He also has some amazing scurs but he is a really well made kid and I think he will be a great addition for us.

Snow flurries were coming down the night this kid was born.  We don't usually keep buck kids but this one was just so nice - long, tall and level.  And he keeps getting better. Plus both his parents had been sold so he was the last of those genetics.  We are so glad we kept him.  Now we will see what his kids are like.


Dandy - October 2013

Two -Ceders D-W Patterson *B
    Hoyt Farms Zella Faye
          Hoyt Farms Amanda Willey 2*M

Dandy's dam is named for our neighbor.  When I told Zella that her namesake goat had kidded, she said "well, that kid must be a dandy" and there was the perfect name!  And she is a Dandy.  Big, long, level with nice width throughout and a lovely head, Dandy Girl was the Grand Champion Junior Saanen at the 2013 AR State Fair. 
As a first freshening yearling, Dandy is still a dandy.  Her udder has much better attachment than her dam's udder and, although her teats are not large, they are quite easy to milk.  She is a good mother and raised a lovely doe kid.  Update:  Dandy was 1st place yearling milker at the 2014 AR State Fair and 3rd place in Best Udder. 

Dazzle - October 2013

Dazzle is such a pretty girl.  This picture really doesn't do her justice!  She was Reserve Champion Junior Saanen at the AR State Fair standing behind her older, half sister, Dandy. 

As a first freshening yearling, Dazzle is not a tall girl.  But what an udder and what a kid she raised!  We sold her April born daughter in August.  At that time, Dazzle weighed in at 110#s and her kid weighed 102#s and had a barn name of "The Hulk".  She was almost as tall as her dam and much thicker.  Dazzle is easily giving a gallon a day with the Hulk gone and has a lovely shape to her udder.  If anything, I would ask for a bit longer teat size but I feel they will grow some with time.  Her dam has short, thick teats and Dazzle's are not quite as wide which is actually easier for me to milk.  Both Dandy and Dazzle squat and let their milk down whenever you reach under them.  So nice!

           Two-Ceders Whimper  
The first time I did much with the 2014 kids, I put a collar on this one and she just led like she knew exactly what to do.  I said " you sure are easy" and there was her name.  She was the Grand Champion Junior Saanen at the 2014 AR State Fair and one of our 1st place Best Three Junior Doe entries.   In 2014, Zeus escaped and bred Easy.  Since he had fertility problems the year before, we were not concerned.  Well, Easy kidded with twins at barely a year old.   By three months of age, her buckling was taller than she was.  She milked very well.  In fact, we would have liked her to slack off a bit and grow more.  So, we did dry her off at the end of summer - not an easy task.   But this gave her time to grow and now she is a lovely girl.

Exceptional is just that.  She was a gorgeous kid, very tall and very open.  Although she placed 3rd the only time shown as a kid, she was at a gawky point, typical of some of our really tall kids.  I think she will be gorgeous when she gets it all together.  As a yearling milker, Exceptional was Grand Champion in all four rings of a quad show.  We wish she had had more competition as she is a super nice doe.

Eesabella is a silly kid.  She gets into everything and then says "who me?  Not me!"  We love it that she is polled.  Eesabella's full sister but a year older was the Grand Champion Senior Saanen in both the youth and open shows at the 2015 Arkansas State Fair.  "Bella" has made a lovely yearling milker with a nicely attached, easy to milk udder.  Plans had been to take her to the fair but she came in the day before with an eye swollen shut.  It healed nicely and quickly but we didn't take her to the fair.

Faith is a big, strong girl with a lovely disposition.  She won her class the only time shown.  We need to get a picture of her!

Foxy was a wild child but she has since settled down.  She won her class the only time shown.

I wasn't going to keep any more American Saanens but I just had to keep Fiddlesticks.  I really regretted selling her dam, Calliope, who was such an awesome lady.  But she went to a great home with a young girl who loves her dearly.  Hopefully, Fiddlesticks can follow in her mother's footsteps.  She was a bit nervous in the picture as she had never been away from home and was at a show.  She did win her class, making us proud of her.
