Zeus in May 2013

Zues talking to a doe in 2013

      DD: Two-Ceders Tasha *M

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.

Moonshine in 2013

  DAM: GCH Two-Ceders Taylor 7*M
     DD: Two-Ceders Dream Kat 6*M

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. 



Zipper - 2012

HOYT FARMS ZIPPER AS1471999 (2/26/2009)
       DS:  Cerulean Long Tall Texan
   Dam: Hoyt Farms Sarahs T Venus
       DD: Hoyt Farms Sara

Zipper is a really solid doe - thick and wide throughout with a lot of strength.  She was Reserve Champion as a dry yearling but was really carrying too much weight.  Zipper freshened in 2012 with triplets and enough milk to feed three more!  She has a nice udder and is gentle on the milk stand.  Always answering when you call her name, Zipper is a joy to have in the barn. 
 Zipper was Grand Champion the only time shown in 2011 and she really looks good in 2012.  We hope to take her to a one day test in 2014.   FOR SALE!


Lizbeth yearling udder 2013

Lizbeth is a tall, gawky yearling that is all legs, a typical Moonshine daughter.  She gave us a lovely doeling sired by Chancellor and is an excellent mother.   We think she will be hard to beat when she is a bit older and grows into her legs.  Lizbeth's daughter, Dazzle, was the Reserve Champion Junior Saanen at the 2013 AR State Fair
At age 2, Lizbeth is still trying to have enough body for her legs.  A poor disbudding job left her with a bit of a unicorn look and she slipped on a pallet and ripped her entire side open so she has an ugly scar when clipped.  But, she can certainly put the milk in the bucket!  She is very easy to milk and plans are for her to go to a one day milk test in 2014. 

Dandy - October 2013

1st place yearling milker, 3rd place Best Udder

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!

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.

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.

Eureka is another long, tall purebred kid.  She is gawky but like many Moonshine daughters but she should be lovely in a few years.

Eesabella is a silly kid.  She gets into everything and then says "who me?  Not me!"  We love it that she is polled.
