Moonshine is the matrich doe of our herd. When we had the opportunity to purchase a doe from her dam, which was Kristie's 4H project, we decided to take it! She has very sharp withers, a long neck, and her back has improved with maturity. For a small girl, her udder has proven sensational in the past similar to her dam's with large capacity throughout. She is an affectionate, sweet girl and excellent mother. Moonie kidded out in 2015 with two does and then again with a single doe in 2021 which unfortunately did not make it. We will be bringing her in the ring one last time this year, participating in milk test and anticipating appraisal. She is currently milking out around four pounds a day. After this year, she will be retired here on our farm and living out her days as a happy pasture potato!

We retained Brandy from a Moonshine kidding in 2015. Brandy has by far proven to be one of the strongest does in our herd. She stands very correct and shows lots of dairy character, especially depth. Her rump and brisket are something to talk about! Her udder shows larger capacity compared to her dam. Her teats are on the larger side for a Nigerian and are easily milkable. She kidded out with twins in 2018 and kidded out this spring in 2021 with quads, three does and a buck, all were polled except one. She is arguably one of the best does in my barn and I am very excited to take her out this year and see how she does!

Brandy attended the NHDGA Show on 06/05/2021. It was a large class and well attended. Brandy was commended for being level and having a nice topline. We hope to have her fill more for our next show later this month!

I wish I had more photos of this doe to show! Piper is the sister of Brandy and while the two are directly related, they both have their own traits which make them unique. Piper is more of an "Old Style" Nigerian, being a bit smaller in stature. Her udder is soft and easy to milk. She is now on her fourth freshening and I am the most impressed with rear udder attachments. She still proves to be different from her sister but good in different ways. We are excited to see how she does this year!

Logistically speaking, I am not sure how we got so fortunate to have this doe in our herd. This is a prime example of what years of patience, excellent genetics and selective breeding looks like. We retained Noir out of Brandy in 2018 and there is not a single moment that I regret the decision. She is deep, has a phenomenal brisket and rump and holds excellent placement in her teats. Noir kidded out this spring and has a lovely udder with improvements from her dam. We plan on taking her out this year and seeing how she performs! I am excited for the future with her.

Very excited to be adding this lovely doe with some great, new genetics into our herd! Oompa comes to us from Hickory Lane Farm in Litchfield County, CT. Since we sold one of our younger does this year due to her not fitting in our program, we began our search for the right fit. Oompa brings things into my herd that I would like to improve upon in my current does and two freshenings under her belt. She has a beautiful fore-udder and excellent production history. Looking forward to the future with this one and breeding plans for this fall!

We took Oompa out to our first show with us, NHDGA on June 5th. She really knows what she is doing and is helping me restore my confidence ringside after some time off! She placed 10th in both rings amongst 20 or so does, being commended for correct teat placement and consistency throughout the mammary system. There were huge classes and great competition. We are excited to see how she does at our next show!
