Linear Appraisal 2017 02-03 +VEV 86

Trillium left our herd for a while, but is now back, which is a good thing. She freshened with a promising udder, and is milking well. Trillium's dam Rainflower is now with Tanya Callison at Gabhran Creek; Rainflower's second fresh udder is incredible!

Linear Appraisal 2017 02-02 VVVV 87

Yet another promising doeling that seems to be similar to her mom at the same age. I know you've heard it before; we'll try to get better photos this next year. Please click here to go to Cavatina's page, including (as available) additional pictures, milk production records, progeny, and pedigree.

We are pleased with Mocha's udder and milk! She is an improvement over her dam in many respects, and Java was no slouch. Please click here to go to Mocha's page, including (as available) additional pictures, milk production records, progeny, and pedigree.

Linear Appraisal 2017 +V++ 83

Vivace and Presto (her brother) aren't going anywhere for a while. Lovely length of body and rump structure. She is very similar in general appearance to her dam, which I find interesting (and exciting). Vivace has been successful in the show ring (like her brother Oak Apple Presto). Vivace received her junior leg last summer at the Leila Berry Memorial show.

Old Mountain Farm Cernunnos VEV 89 x SGCH Camanna GD Moonlight Opera VEEE 90 Linear Appraisal 2017 01-04 V+V+ 84

Buffa and Seria are full sisters to Cavatina, so it should be obvious that we liked this breeding enough to repeat it. Opera is our best milker, and finished her championship with minimal showing. Cavatina showed well in 2017. All of these kids are similar in type. They have striking general appearance and structure. Click here to go to Buffa's page.

Linear Appraisal 2017 not appraised - too fresh

Kireina is a promising young doe who has a really nice udder. She got sunburned before our photo shoot; I just couldn't post a side view. Click here to go to Kireina's page.

We repeated this cross as we liked what we got, and Lily does not disappoint! She is level in the chine and has a good chest and rump. She came into milk and continued to improve throughout her lactation. Click here to go to Lily's page.

Linear Appraisal 2017 not appraised - not in milk

Ceridwen has lovely conformation; but had complications from kidding and never came into milk well. Her older full sister, Oak Apple Boadicea is doing quite nicely. Click here to go to her page.

Oak Apple Ginette

Ginette has great shoulders and topline. She has come into milk nicely despite having a rough start; we are hoping that 2018 is much calmer. Click here to go to Ginette's page.

2018 First Fresheners

Castle Rock Firn

Born 03/11/2015

Castle Rock Rainmaker x SGCH AGS CRF Castle Rock Blizzard 1*M 05-02 VEEE 91

I really hope I have my act together to get a serious photo of Firn this next year. So far I will report that she is small, but wide and still dairy, with dairy skin, coat, and ribbing. She isn't going anywhere for a while! It doesn't hurt that she is very friendly, either! I do have some candid photos of her, which just turned to be photos of head/eyes/nose. As I said, she is friendly! Thanks yet again to Sarah Hawkins of Castle Rock Farm. Please click here to go to Firn's page, including (as available) additional pictures, milk production records, progeny, and pedigree.

MaryB is a promising young lass. Although small, she was the definite keeper out of quints. She is left open as a dry yearling for 2017 to get some size. Please click here to go to her page, with more pictures, linear appraisal scores, progeny, milk production data (if available) and pedigree.

Oak Apple Amelia

Old Mountain Farm Cernunnos VEV 89 x Piddlin Acres W Taboo VEEE 90

Amelia was one of the most eye-catching kids this last year. As a kid she excelled in uphill general appearance and structure. She has gone through a bit of a gangly disorganized phase, which she fortunately outgrew in time to win Best Juniour Doe in Show at the Lelia Berry Memorial Goat Show the summer of 2017.

Oak Apple Macchiato

Dragonfly HLJ Mustafa VEE 89 x SG Sugar Moon Java Pepper 03-03 +VVE 87

Macchiato and Marochino were two of three doelings that we also couldn't decide between. They have good rump structure, and will hopefully follow in their dam's hoofsteps in the milk and udder department. Contact us if you might be interested in one of these sisters as we will be letting one of them leave our when they freshen in 2018... Please click here to go to her page, with more pictures, linear appraisal scores, progeny, milk production data (if available) and pedigree.

Jenny is one of our first successful AI breedings; fortunately she is also one of the cream of the 2017 kid crop. As one of our larger 2017 does, she is bred to freshen in 2018. Click here to go to Jenny's page.
