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 30th 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.

Every year it seems there are new challenges, this year it was not a goat one, but a health issue for me. In February I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I nearly fell off the chair I could not believe it! But it was true, and so the long journey of treatment and recovery began. I am very, very happy to say that after many weeks of chemo treatments, I am now cancer free!! I thank God every day and am so grateful to my wonderful doctor and the nurses that took care of me, and of our many friends, who gave Richie and I both so much support! Without them we would not have been able to make it through this journey and back to normal life with our goats! I am so happy to be able to feed and care for them again, and am really looking forward to new babies in the spring!

Because of the situation here at home, the girls only got to a couple shows this last summer. But they did really well! Let's Party looked spectacular and finished at the first show, going 2X GCH, 1X BOB and 1X BDIS! It was so exciting! Bridgett was undefeated in the yearling class this year, also going 1X Res. GCH and 1X GCH but unfortunately that show did not make sanction. Cee Cee got her dry leg at the first show of the year, Hallie was reserve to her the first day and then she was JRCH the second day getting her dry leg too. Taffy looked spectacular and was 2X BOB, 2X BDIS, 2X BUIS. Azure gave Taffy a run for her money and she was also BOB and BUIS twice. We were really pleased with how they did and look forward to more shows next summer!

The following sales list offers prices on kids available for the 2018 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 2017. 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.
