If you want to go on an exciting journey I highly recommend getting dairy goats! They are loveable, smart creatures that have the ability to look cute while they get into trouble. My goat life started in 2017 and so far has led me to Lamanchas, thanks to a friend's guidance. They are excellent producers of sweet milk and have easy going personalities; even if they do look funny without ears. They still get into trouble (they are still goats after all) but not quite like others I've had.
I'll always recommend finding a good mentor to new and prospective goat owners. I did and they've since become friends as well. Feel free to send me an email, I'd be happy to help you find a mentor or be a mentor for you.
Roeburn's Nikola's Milana
Birth Date: March 24, 2016
LA: 2019 83 V+++
Having admired her older full sister Amalie for a while I jumped at the opportunity when Roeburn offered Lana for sale. I love the large frame and beauty of Roeburn's does and Lana is prime example of it. Lana is an absolute sweetheart who enjoys scratches and attention from her people and visitors alike. She is a long level doe who excels in general appearance. She has great udder capacity though she doesn't quite use it to it's full capacity. Despite that she currently averages 7 lbs of milk a day and is easy to milk both by hand and machine. Lana's been a bit stingy on doelings since leaving Roeburn Alpines but I'm looking forward to having her daughters in the herd eventually.
Rustic Wood's LJ Kyah
Birth Date: March 10, 2018
Kyah is the quietest doe in the barn, she's a sweet girl who enjoys cheek scratches and will set her head in your hand for them. We call her our MVP because she's consistently been our highest producer averaging 10 lbs of milk a day. She milks out quickly and down to nothing! Truly our MVP, Kyah is a beautiful, well balanced doe.
Rustic Wood's ROF Karma
Birth Date: April 4, 2018
Karma is our herd queen and a loveable attention hog. She's almost always the first one to the gate and loves neck scratches. Karma excels in general appearence. She has a beautiful udder with production to match. She's averaging 9 lbs of milk a day as a first freshener! Looking forward to getting her the show ring someday soon.
Rustic Wood's MLT Dignity
Birth Date: February 11, 2019
Dignity, aka Lady D, is a happy go lucky girl. She loves to run, hop sideways down the hill and play all day. Just like the others, she loves attention and will stand at the gate a look you with the puppy head tilt til she gets some pets. Although Lady D still has some maturing to do we are beyond happy with our little goofball. She is a beautiful young doe and milks out to nothing. Her average production is just shy of 6 lbs a day. We're excited to see how she matures and how her production increases with a second freshening.
Sunnydale Farm MK Mia
Birth Date: February 27, 2020
Mia is Karma's daughter, when she became available I couldn't let her go anywhere but here. We've been really happy with her dam Karma and are excited to see Mia mature. She's a really nice doe kid, long, level, and tall. She resembles her dam quite a bit; even sharing a few of her personality traits. Mia's one of the first to come to the gate and will take all the pets if she can. We're excited to have her here.
Sunnydale Farm ROF Merlot
Birth Date: April 11, 2020
Not all thing's go as planned on the farm sometimes and a bit of that created Merlot. She is a heavy linebreeding on an exceptional buck though and is turning into quite the stunner with a rump as wide as the day is long for a young doe. Merlot will be a dry yearling in a 2021 and one who I'm excited to bring out to a few shows. With her personality I think she'll enjoy the show as well.
We have a couple exciting reservations for 2021, here's hoping for bucklings! Check back here late spring for an update
A huge heartfelt Thank You to my friends at Sunnydale Farm, Rustic Wood's Farm and Roeburn for these beautiful girls. We couldn't have asked for a better start to our dairy goat herd and are honored to have been entrusted with these wonderful ladies.
