Dairy Goats began in 1994 when we purchased two Nubian kids, a doe (Buttercup) and a wether (Pepsi).They were not bought with
the intention of showing, but rather for brush control and companionship for a lonely horse.
In the fall of 1994 Kayla joined a 4-H club. The club's leader
Lisa Gardner(Whisper'N'Pines), a well known breeder of Toggenburgs, was an inspiration to her, and that's how
our story began.
Kayla purchased her first Toggenburg doe in the summer of 1995, although she
was bred by a fellow club member, she contained Whisper'N'Pines bloodlines. Fuchsia, a "Jaguar" daughter, earned
her GCH and a LA score of 90, and served as Kayla's showmanship doe for 9 years. They attended several
ADGA Nationals along the way, placing 2nd as a team in Iowa in 2003. Fuchsia was retired in the Fall of 2005 and sadly
crossed over the "Rainbow bridge" at the age of 15, in 2010. Kayla sold her togg herd in the fall of 2005, as she headed
off to college, attending the University of Alaska Southeast in Juneau.
Kim joined in and took over the Nubian herd after Kayla switched to theToggs. When
the show string grew larger, I (Judy) joined in(in whites), and was hooked. However, as with many herds the
kids(2 legged) grow up, and move on. As I said before, I am hooked and will continue on showing
the herd; joining the "moms without kids club,"(I know I'm not alone). I enjoy the time, however, when the
girls and now also the grandson "Carson"are able to come and help at home and at the shows.
Our Nubian bloodlines today consist mainly of Lassenwood, Kastdemur,
Copper-Hill, Remuda and My-Enchanted-Acres. With the use of Artificial Insemination(AI) we have been able to add
in Wingwood Farm, J&R Spirit's and M's Sagebrush, and will continue to add new genetics through the use of AI.
We have participated in DHIR and Linear Appraisal programs since 1998 and are ADGA
maintain a strong "Pathogen Prevention Program". Our kids are pulled from their dams at birth and are fed heat treated
colostrum and pasturized milk as we feel strongly about pathogen prevention. We maintain a 100% Neg. CAE/CL herd. We continue
to do CAE testing annually through WSU, last tested 2/14/2017.
Our whole herd is currently
G6S normal by testing or parentage. We will continue to test as needed for unknown status of sires we use live
or via AI.
We attended the 2005 ADGA National Show, in Spokane Washington.
