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 32nd year on DHIR test, and we have had the top milk and butterfat LaMancha in the state of Colorado for the past 28 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 been very good to us, although as with life in general there were some challenges too. We were very sad to have to say good bye to some of our older goats. Avalanche just did not recover well when he came out of rut, he was 8 and for a buck his size that is not surprising. We retired and rehomed Torie and Claire. Maggie Rose never bred back after her c-section last year, and Azure, who suffered an injury to a rear leg right after kidding in the spring, never recovered from it and we had to say good bye to her too. This is the really hard part of having goats! We are very happy that we have beautiful daughters and grand daughters in our herd from these wonderful animals and we will continue on with our breeding program with them. I met with a big bump in the road with a broken leg in the spring. Yikes I could not believe it. But I have recovered well and am happy to be back at the barn full time!

This year was very exciting for us, with some fantastic AI breeding's that settled and gave us beautiful doe kids! We had a great show season, with Hallie being our little super star finishing at the first show of the season. She was undefeated the rest of the summer in BOB and won BDIS at the last show of the season! Avery did well too being right behind her with a couple reserves. Taffeta was undefeated in the yearling milker class which was really exciting, and she won the milking Futurity Class at the last show with all breeds competing! Lizzy, Vicarious, Vixen and Lily all got their dry legs in big, competitive kid classes. It was a really fun show season and we look forward to seeing those beautiful kids as milkers next spring!

The following sales list offers prices on kids available for the 2020 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 2019. 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.
