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.
Rustic Wood's LJ Kyah
Birth Date: March 10, 2018
LA 2021: VEV+ 85
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
LA 2021: EEVE 90
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
LA 2021: VEVE 88
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
LA 2021: +++V 84
Mia is Karma's daughter, when she became available I jumped at the opportunity to bring her home. 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.
Sunnydale Farm ROF Neroli
Birth Date: March 18, 2021
When neither of our does that were bred to Ring gave us doelings I jumped at the opportunity to add two more of his daughters from Sunnydale Farm.
Neroli settled in quickly with her quiet, sweet personality. A beautiful doeling who appears to have inherited both her parents strengths. I'm excited to see her mature and hope to get her out to a couple shows. She became fast friends with our lone doeling, Bella.
Sunnydale Farm ROF Nasturtium
Birth Date: March 25, 2021
Nasturtium aka Nattie is an adorable firecracker doeling. First to run down the hill and follow you all around. She voices her opposition when you leave and needs all the pets. She shares a lot of similarities with Merlot and it wasn't surprising when the two hit it off.
On The Edge Belle of the ball (pending)
Birth Date: April 2, 2021
Her dam, Dignity, is raising her and doing a wonderful job.
Bella's best friend is Falcor, our Great Pyrenees and the dairy goats guardian dog. You'll most often find her sun bathing though with her best goat pal Neroli. They have similar quiet personalities and get along well.
On The Edge SDB Nala (pending)
Birth Date: May 25, 2021
Nala is Mia's doeling and is a love like her dam. She loves to shadow me around the barn and enjoys spending time with Falcor just like her half sister Bella.
