An AGS Top Ten milker for 2012!

(Ribht photo by Declan Dean) Another long, elegant, striking Hunk daughter. Described by Lynn Fleming as "the most beautiful Nigerian Dwarf doe I have ever seen," just before she awarded her the Best Jr Doe in Show rosette in Windsor, Maine, May, 2009. As a kid she was breathtaking and extremely unfriendly, but has calmed down considerably since she kidded and joined the milking string. Her udder is a joy to milk, with outstanding attachments and huge teats. For more photos and information, including udder photos, click here to go to her page.

Egghead is the prettiest daughter that Harley has ever given me, and she's turned out to be just what I hoped for--a scaled up, stretched out version of her dam. Obviously I didn't register her as Egghead, but I have come to realize that's what she is going to be called, whether I like it or not...that will teach me to give a kid a nickname; sometimes they stick. As a yearling, she drew the comment "Wow," from our 2010 Linear Appraiser. In 2011 she was part of our sweep of the top 3 places in the 2 year old class at the ADGA Nationals in Springfield, MA (3rd, behind CH Peregrine and eventual National Ch, Topaz).

Dragonfly RY Danube
Sire: Caesar's Villa BB Rebel Yell *S (Caesar's Villa FL Brat in Barn *S x ARMCH Caesar's Villa STS Suthrn Bell 2*D)

June, 2015
April, 2016
DOB 5/5/09
extended pedigree LA 2015 VVVV 86

Danu returned home in 2014, and was a 6 year old first freshener in 2015. She was a beloved pet for her first 5 years, and as such is as sweet as the day is long. I was thrilled to get her back, as I have nothing from the lovely Danu, and all descendants of Ariadne are precious to me. I am also not sure that I can have too many Rebel daughters. Freshened with a very nice first udder for an old lady. Her second fresh udder has greatly increased capacity with the same nice attachments. For more pictures, click here to go to her page.

(Left photo by George Gould, right photo by Declan Dean) Somali has one of the best rumps in the herd. As a mature doe, she still has gorgeous attachments and a bit more capacity. For more pictures and information, click here to go to her page.

(Photo by Declan Dean) Like all of our Hal kids, Abby is elegant, stretchy, and correct. Needs some remedial comportment lessons. Freshened the first time with mastitis on one side; that side never came into milk, so I did not get good pictures of her beautiful udder. Her udder now is lovely, and is interesting because it is held so tightly to her body and contains so little excess tissue that it looks smaller than it actually is. Abby finshed her permanent CH in style in 2014on her 4th freshening. For more pictures and information, click here to go to her page.

(Photos by Declan Dean) I really wanted to see how this Flat Rocks/Stetson cross would work out, although truth be told it's not an outcross but actually a rather nice linebreeding on Alamo Messenger and one of his daughters, Goodwood Mermaid. We now have 3 nearly identical plain chocolate chami does with almost no white at all...and she produced yet another generation of beautiful chocolate chami does by Hunk this year. She also produced a nearly flawless first udder. All this was enough to earn her the title of ADGA National Champion in 2011. In explaining why the judges chose do the almost unprecedented and award the National Champion medal to 2 year old Topaz, judge Lauren Acton said, "Yes, she's young, but that's her only flaw--she's young." High praise indeed. For more pictures and information, click here to go to her page.

Dam: Kannah Creek SF Kaya *D VG (Twin Creeks BW Solar Flare *S x Gay-Mor's Lucky Monarda)

May, 2012
DOB 4/4/10
extended pedigree LA 2011 VVV+ 85, 2013 V+EV 88, 2015 VEVE 90

I just love this beautiful, sweet doe, sired by my favorite buck and in my absolute favorite color. We tragically lost her dam and her brother, so I am even more grateful that I still have this doe in my barn. Freshened at 10 months old with a beautiful little (very little)udder, though an appropriate size for a doe so young. Her second freshening produced an udder with beautiful bloom, which enabled her to beat out her herdmate National CH Topaz all three times they were shown together.

Dragonfly HFX  Ishtar
Sire: MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax (Rosasharn Tom's Water Tabby *S x Stonewall's India Wilkes)

Dam: Doe-Sy-Doe's Tiger's L'ily *D (ARMCH Rosasharn's Tiger L + *S E x MCH Stonewall's L'il Honeysuckle E 90.1)

 
DOB 6/5/10
extended pedigree LA 2011 V+V+ 84, 2012 A+V+ 82, 2013 ++VV 85

(Photos by Declan Dean) Ishtar is a beautiful doe. Really. Not sure what the appraisers are seeing here that is so inferior. But the truth is, once a doe has a beautiful udder (and make no mistake, once Ishtar gets the capacity her pedigree predicts, this is going to be a very beautiful udder) somehow the scores in the other areas of the scorecard grow to match. This doe ain't going anywhere. For more photos and information, click here to go to her page.

Dragonfly HFX Aurum VEEV 88
Sire: MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax (Rosasharn Tom's Water Tabby *S x Stonewall's India Wilkes)

Dam: Flat Rocks Galena (Flat Rocks Gem x 5 Alarm Prism)

DOB 2/26/10
extended pedigree LA 2013 VEEV 88

Galena has been a bit of a sleeper in our herd, not being shown much due to some trouble getting her ADGA registration, but she is just as nice as you'd expect a Gem daughter out of one of Sunni's favorite does to be, and I can't wait to see how she combined with the very prepotent Halifax. Aurum has turned out very well, and was one of our 2013 appraisers' favorite does. For more pictures and information, including udder pictures, click here to visit her page.

Dragonfly HFX Demeter VEVV 89
Sire: MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax (Rosasharn Tom's Water Tabby *S x Stonewall's India Wilkes)

June, 2015
DOB 3/1/10
extended pedigree LA 2013 VVVV 89, 2015, VEVV 89; 2017, VVEV 86

Possibly because she is a fairly petite doe, Demeter always seems to get a bit overlooked, but she is actually lovely, and deserves more exposure going forward. For more pictures and information, including udder pictures, click here to visit her page.

Sire: Dragofnly DR Bacchus (Flat Rocks Diamond Rio x Dragonfly IH Aphrodite)
DOB 3/9/10
extended pedigree LA 2012 ++E+ 83 (appraised milked out--oops), 2013 VVEE 89

After I almost lost Deirdre in 2011 to a horrible, possibly gangrene mastitis, I was very glad that I had retained this doe who was orginally supposed to be sold. She takes after her granddam Aphrodite in body type, which means long and elegant, with the gorgeous Ariadne rump structure, but she is also petite like her grandsire Rio, which is good because Aphrodite is pushing the stick. Should be a lot of milk here as well. Her first udder was very similar to Deirdre's, both in shape and capacity, though she has a much higher escutcheon, and her rear udder is higher as a consequence. As a second freshener she is one of my new favorites...Like her dam she is both powerful and dairy, with a beautiful, capacious second udder.

Show record: 1 x RGCH (Barnstable Fair, 7/2015, Bob Bartholomew)

Dragonfly HFX Luna Lovegood

Sire: MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax (Rosasharn Tom's Water Tabby *S x Stonewall's India Wilkes)

Dam: ARMCH Dragonfly M Skylark *D E (Piddlin Acres SC Maestro +S E x Fairlea Louise)

DOB 5/6/10
extended pedigree LA 2011 VVEc, V, 2013, VEVA 8; 2017, VVV+ 85

A beautiful daughter out of reliable champion Skylark, sired by the late Halifax. Not quite as long and elegant as her stunning 3/4 sister Vesta, but very solid in general appearance with outstanding feet and legs, much like her dam. Named quite fittingly by my favorite adopted daughter, Libby. Freshened with a small but well attached udder. After producing quads her first freshening and triplets her second less than 9 months later, Luna freshened for the third time as a 3 year old with nice twins...for a total of 9 kids in less than 2 years...and looks great. Okay, I meant to give her the summer off, but she had other ideas. I had to admit finally this time around that her udder leaves something to be desired, but I was very happy when our 2013 appraiser said unambiguously that she is a keeper, because she is so strong in other areas of the scorecard. She earned solid Vs and Es across all the structural categories, one of my few does to do so, including Es in rear legs and back. She really only falls down in medial and teat placement...normally dealbreakers for me, but one reason I do linear appraisal is to try and keep perspective on the whole goat in context of my whole herd, and Luna is a good object lesson there.

Dam: Dragonfly R Jubilee (Caesar's Villa BB Rebel Yell *S x ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D E)
DOB 7/31/10
extended pedigree LA 2012 VVEc -- V, 2013 +EVV 86

One of my favorite kids of 2010 both for her stunning looks and for her loving personality. Actually quite an amazing pedigree. I missed getting this doe bred for 2012, which was a shame, but in the meantime she squeaked in one last show as a junior doe, and managed to win her junior leg in style with a Best Junior Doe in Show to go with it. That makes our third Hunk daughter to win BJrDIS, along with Peregrine and Verdandi. Her first udder did not disappoint either. Happy with her LA score as a first freshener. One of our young stars.

DOB 3/11/11
extended pedigree LA ++Ec -- +, 2013 VVEV 87, 2015 +EVV 87; 2017, +VVV 85

Another typical Hunk daughter with the added distinction of being the daughter of the 2011 ADGA National Champion. I do think that personality is inherited in goats--at least, despite being a dam raised kid, Amber is as sweet and loving as both of her parents. Very solid conformation, lovely first udder, and "exciting" dairy character...boy do I love to hear the appraiser say that...For more photos and information, click here to go to her page.

Dragonfly ARG Babylon
Sire: Dragonfly HFX Ranger (Aragorn) (MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax x Dragonfly IH Electra *D AR)
Dam: ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D E (Flat Rocks Buried Treasure x Flat Rocks Party Time)
DOB 5/7/11
extended pedigree LA 2012 VVEc -- V, 2013 VVE+ 86

Going to have to work on social skills with this one. Still, she behaves pretty well on a lead and in the ring. Another doe with a slightly less beautiful udder than I would like (though I think early mastitis and resultant loss of production and symmetry this freshening didn't help there) that our 2013 appraiser was adamant is a keeper. Very strong across the structural categories and I actually feel that with another freshening or two and her full capacity she will come up in udder as well.

Dam: Dragonfly IH Electra (PromisedLand Incredible Hunk *S x Twin Creeks WB Summer Blonde)

October, 2015
DOB 6/3/11
extended pedigree LA 2013 ++VV 84, 2014 VVVV 88

Lovely, much like her dam, but sweet, a nice contrast! Not a particularly stunning first LA score, but advice is that she is a keeper with lots of potential. Very happy with her on her second freshening. Same super attachments, much increased capacity (milking over 6 pounds on her first milk test in 2014), and a pretty darn decent LA score considering she hade been in milk at that time over 7 months.

Show record: 1 x 1st

Dragonfly AV Cirrus
Sire: TX Twincreeks PKM Avatar (Piddlin Acres Pokemon x MCH Gay-Mor's JJU Nonpareil 3*D E)

Dam: CH Dragonfly G Dierdre (ARMCH Twin Creeks BW Giacomo Puccini +*S +B E x Twin Creeks WB Summer Blonde)

October, 2015
DOB 6/4/11
extended pedigree LA 2017, +EEV 85

Cirrus seems to have many of her dam's strengths, and all of her grumpy personality. If she also inherited her dam's business-like attitude to her roles in life, we will get along fine! Cirrus had her own ideas about when or if she should have babies, so she got herself bred both for January and for July in 2013, and September in 2015. She has thus studiously avoided being appraised, but has a stunning udder, and a ton of capacity. For more pictures and information, including udder pictures, click here to go to her page.

Dragonfly AV Seze
Sire: TX Twincreeks PKM Avatar (Piddlin Acres Pokemon x MCH Gay-Mor's JJU Nonpareil 3*D E)

June, 2016
August, 2017
DOB 4/8/12
extended pedigree LA 2017 +VVE 86

This is the third Snowbird daughter I have here, but the old girl had so many nice qualities, I just can't feel that 3 is too many. I am also very excited about all of my Avatar daughters--his brother Ghirardelli in the Agape Oaks herd has produced several phenomenal udders, and his sisters Brown Betty (at Twin Creeks) and Fudge Love (at Pecan Hollow) are gorgeous as well. Seze is the name of one of the giant Archeopteryx-like birds ridden by the Na'vi in the movie, Avatar. Seze did freshen with the style of udder and super attachments I have come to expect from Avatar, although I am a bit disappointed that she took this long to get around to it...

Show record:

April, 2016
DOB 5/6/12

Her name is pronounced REE ah-tone-a. So thrilled to have a Harry Potter daughter, many many thanks to my dear friend Sunni for sending her my way!
