We were able to use Breezy Farms Call Me Al for the 2017 breeding season before he went to his new farm in Minnesota. He is out of Helderberg TB Rapunzel, our best milking doe. The sire is Desert Nanny BR Hoo Doo Ya Love.
Wanda came to our farm in fall of 2014. She has blessed us with multiple kids, including Breezy Farms Soo Dam Lucky and Breezy Farms Hoo's Ur Daddy. Wanda is an easy going addition, very willing to go on the milk stand and is happy to be the herd queen. 2016 is the first year Wanda is on milk test. Update: Well Wanda continues to surprise us. We had our LA session for 2018 and I wasn't going to bring the old lady out .... figured her days of being a star were over. Well, surprise surprise, the old bird still has a few tricks up her sleeve! Check out her 2018 LA score! The lady still has it. I will also add that the plan was to dry her off after kidding so I can try and get a few more kids out of her this next year. .. well, she refuses to be dried off and it happily milking this season at 1x a day. Wanda died during the winter of 2019. Many of her relatives are in our herd.
Nancy is one of my home grown favorites. She comes from a line of goats that I am very familiar with as they were my first ones. Nancy's Great Grandma is MI Sugar Creek TS Virtuous, I had the pleasure to own her for a few years. She had a wonderfully soft milking udder and had large teats -- Ideal for the first time goat milker! Virtue gave me Babel Brook Acres BW Sunshine and she was bred to DesertNanny BR Hoo Doo Ya Love the first year we started focusing on milk production in our goats. Nancy is the result of that breeding and I am very happy with her. If ever there was a doe that had a track record of producing goats with awesome dispositions it would be her. She has provided me with several daughters that have made myself and others very happy. 2018 update - Nancy is the first of our home bred does to appraise with an "E" in rump! Pedigree: S: Desert Nanny BR Hoo Doo Ya Love D: Babel Brook Acres BW Sunshine
Alpha s1 Casein: B/F Linear Appraisal Scores: 2016: V+ V + 85 2015: VEVV 87 2016 is Nancy's first year on milk test. 2018: EEEV 88
Helderberg TB Rapunzel 1*M
Rapunzel has been a welcome addition to the our herd. Her genetics include heavy milking lines from Chenango-hills and Rosasharn. Rapunzel has produced several promising kids for us and is an easy kidder. She is a strong doe with a good personality. Her udder texture is one of the best in our herd and she is an easy hand milker. She is on test this year and is bound to be our highest producer in volume, butter fat, and protein. Pedigree: Sire: CH Rosashan BB Tom Bombadil ++*B Dam: CH Chenango-Hills Tatyana LA: 2021: VEEA 84
A strong and yet smaller doe. Harmony is a sired by Cedar View Olivero, a very accomplished herd sire when it comes to milking and structure. Aside from her being a flashy doe her pedigree truly speaks for itself having multiple top milkers and animals that have scored in the 90's on appraisal. I am really curious how she will develop and contribute to the herd.
Breezy Farms Two Step 2*M
Two Step is the result of a line breeding on DesertNanny Hoo Doo Ya Love. Her sire is Breezy Farms Hoo's Ur Daddy, a (Hoodie/Wanda breeding,) and her dam is Breezy Farm's Dancing Nancy (Hoodie/ Babel Brook Acres BW Sunshine. Two Step was given a show cut for her debut in Portage in 2016 and we found she possess excellent dairy skin. She also possesses the same outstanding disposition that her mother and great grandma possess. I am looking forward to see how she freshens this year.
Update on Two Step: She freshened with ease 2017 with two very flashy does sired by Breezy Farms Call Me Al. I was very impressed by the hind leg set one of the doelings in particular and decided to retain her. This Doe turned out to be Breezy Farms Pig who had a very good run in the shows this year, even getting 6th in Nationals in her class. The down side, I didn't keep up as well as I should have with milking Two Step and she ended up with an uneven udder. I hope to do a better job next year in developing her milk record.
2018 Two Step: Well I am happy with her first Two Step's LA score. She has been increasing her production for 2018. Her udder is nice and even this freshening.
Meet Virginia is the final Hark daughter I kept his year. Her dam is Alethia SHH Moonpie ..now a 5*M! Moonpie had a good showing in her milk test this year and LA scores. I kept Virginia dry this year simply because she was a late April kid and I wanted to avoid a "late" season breeding. I look forward to showing her as a dry yearling for 2019. Pedigree: Sire: Sinai Thunder Hark the Herald +*B Dam: Alethia SHH Moonpie 5*M
