Here are all my current does. All colors from black & white, to tri-color to red & white and more. Breeding for blue eyes, polled and silky along with blue & red color and always correct conformation and bloodlines. If the goat has a underline under their name, you can click it to pull up their pedigree. After the show season winds down, I will be getting the rest registered. For the ones not yet registered, click on their parent's names to show their pedigrees.
All goats over two are tested for Johne's, CAE and CL yearly. Last test was 10/29/10 and all goats tested where negative. I am happy to show paperwork. I breed for purebred fainters, I do not cross breed nor do I own any other breeds of goats. I love the fainters so much any other breed pales in comparison :-)
Click on The Silkies above to see the rest of the does. Check the goats out on FB for a lot more pictures by clicking here.
The pictures you see here are of the does on pasture condition, they get pasture/browse and a free choice protein/mineral block during summer. I do not crowd them into pens or buildings so they have a natural condition to them. Most of the does had raised their kids with no grain and all did fine, I only give grain late fall through early spring because if I grained year round they would become fat and unhealthy. I want goats that are hardy, healthy, able to utilize pasture and forage, need minimal deworming, have good hooves and easy to care for. My goats are "natural" goats and do not need to be fed a ton of grain and hay year round to keep weight on or to raise kids on. And they prefer to sleep outside in good weather compared to being kept in a barn and crowded together, which causes issues. My goats are not fat but are in good weight and excellent health because they are allowed to be goats and not penned up like cattle. The does I have bought come from farms that believe like I do goats should be goats and allowed to free-range and be hardy and don't need to be coddled. You get a better goat that way and a lot less issues with worms, hooves, or diseases. :-)
Finally got the camera working again and updated a bunch of pictures. I like to have several pictures of each goat so you can see what they look like. They are fit and sassy and breeding season has begun and will be getting up the breeding list here shortly. Kids will be arriving end of March through April-May.
