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 31st year on DHIR test, and we have had the top milk and butterfat LaMancha in the state of Colorado for the past 27 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.

Everything here I am happy to say has gone really well this year, no big challenges and no major issues. We are both so grateful for things to be pretty much back to normal. My health has continued to improve and I am grateful every day for that wonderful gift! I spent a lot of time this summer just enjoying our beautiful yard and the area where we live, and I am so happy to be able to care for the goats again! When I first started doing chores it was a really sad thing because they seemed to not remember me. But not anymore they are my best buddies and I love them so much! Kidding season was rather strange with most every doe having a single kid. I think maybe they thought I needed to rest but I am sure next spring they will be back in full force and I will really be running!

We were only able to attend the two local shows again this year. Celebration had a big single buck and with just the one kid we thought she looked darn good for an old girl, so we took her to the show. She really gave the other does a run for their money going 3X BOB and 3X BDIS! Azure beat her at the last show for BOB and her high point for the season was being undefeated for BUIS in all 4 shows! Bridgett got her second GCH leg, Claire and Hallie each got their first milking leg. Tabitha and Allure both earned a dry leg, and were part of our undefeated Best 3 Junior Does. It was a really fun show season! We are hoping to be able to attend at least one more show next year.

The following sales list offers prices on kids available for the 2019 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 2018. 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.
