Lost Valley TB Bonzai x Piddlin Acres Queen of de Nile
Diva is a special goat, and lets us know this as well. Although Diva is our oldest goat, she has a more youthful appearance than her age. Our appraiser thought she was half her age! We want to perpetuate her longevity and dairy appearance. Thanks to Dan Witt of Snowberry Springs for making her available, and thanks to Valerie Russell of Piddlin Acres for breeding her (and allowing us to post the above photos).

NC Promisedland Sayit Againsam +*B x Old Mountain Farm Oliv a Suddn
Tempo is a lovely doe with great length of body, style, and dairy character. I love her length of rump. Tempo was a sleeper in our herd. She freshened shortly before ADGA Nationals, and I was pleasantly surprised when we clipped her. She went on to amaze us to place 11th in her class at Nationals, especially phenomenal as a five-year-old second freshener. Click here to go to her page.

Old Mountain Farm Hakama *B x SG NC Promisedland Palita E90
Not the best pictures of this nice doe. We are extremely excited to have this daughter of NC Promisedland Palita here! Palita has an exceptional milk production history, milking over 1,000 pounds her first lactation, and makes a consistent appearance on the top ten list. To top that off, Palita appraised 90EEEE. Mizuki herself brings style and elegance while still being well within height, and excellent milk potential as well. She did not settle for 2015; she is confirmed bred via BioPryn. Now obviously pregnant. Click here to go to her page.

Again, not the best pictures of this nice doe. We have been looking for this combination of ancestry for a while, and we are very happy that Solanaceae is here. She arrived dry in late spring, and is now bred to Oak Apple Arioso. Click here to go to her page.

Dragonfly HFX Hallelujah x Dragonfly MX Ariane 91 EEEE
We are fortunate to have Ariella in our herd, and every time I look at her I thank Joanne Karohl of Dragonfly Farm for letting Ariella have a home in our herd. She is pictured above heavily bred, so not at her best. Ariane, Ariella's dam (pictured below, courtesy of Joanne Karohl), is an exceptional doe that appraised EEEE 91 this year. We lust after that rump structure! Unfortunately, Ariella had a difficult 2015 kidding, and produced a single small buckling. We (again) hope to get photos of Ariella in milk this next year.

Old Mountain Farm Arturo x Old Mountain Farm Malva VEEE 90
I met Lady Slipper at the 2016 Oregon State Fair as she was being shown by Anna Brown. I like her nice high, level thurls, which are hard to appreciate in the photo below. Her rump is also long. We are hoping that she will blend well with our breeding program. Thanks to Anna Brown of Camanna's Petite Paradise for letting Lady Slipper and her dam, Old Mountain Farm Malva, join our herd. Arturo (Lady Slipper's sire) is related to our Sugar Moon V Java Pepper, who has been one of our best milk producers. Looking forward to stylish kids with great milk potential!

Proctor Hill Farm TO Go Daddy 92 EEE x CH Camanna CS Moonlight Sonata 91 EEEE
There is a good reason why Opera has her name! Now that she is part of the herd, she is not as vocal, and comments when there is just reason. Opera's dam is the incomparable CH Camanna CS Moonlight Sonata E91, a doe that has dairy character in spades, and consistently produces offspring with many of her great traits. Opera pleased us by placing 14th at the 2017 ADGA Nationals, and finishing her championship in limited showing. She milks quickly and completely. She is the foundation of a very strong damline, especially bred to Old Mountain Cernunnos. We heartily thank Anna Brown of Camanna's Petite Paradise for sharing Opera with us.

CRF Castle Rock Guy Noir +B x GCH Castle Rock Snownamie 2*M 90 VEEE
Snegurochka, aka 'Snegs', is Russian for 'snowmaiden'. I visited Sarah Hawkins of Castle Rock Farm in 2012 and was smitten with Castle Rock Snownamie, Snegs' dam. I love Snownamie's length of body, udder, and general appearance. Snegurochka has an excellent area of attachment; she has started to come into her own this winter; we are hoping that she blossoms in 2017. Snegs was reserved long before her illustrious maternal half sister CH Castle Rock Flash Flood was awarded breed Champion at the 2015 ADGA Nationals. Click here to go to her page.

Old Mountain Farm Maenar Quinn VVE 88 x NC Promisedland Nemesis
We are excited about the potential of Helen. She has great width, and had a very level rump from thurl to thurl as a kid. She is retaining her nice attributes, and is on track to mature into a phenomenal doe. I absolutely admire Helen's dam, Promisedland Nemesis, who embodies the width and dairy character that our breed needs. I was fortunate enough to see Nemesis ("Sissy") in person in 2017.

Old Mountain Farm Cernunnos VEV 89 x Camanna RM Painted Lady 6*M VEV+ 87
Boadicea is named after a Celtic queen who defended her people against the Romans. Boadicea was another surprise for us at the 2015 ADGA nationals, and placed 10th in her huge kid class. I like this doe's body--length of rump, chest floor, and long, level back, all on strong feet and legs. She is a sweetie, too! This breeding was repeated for 2016, which resulted in four lovely sisters. Click here to go to Boadicea's page.

Proctor Hill Farm TO Go Daddy EEE 92 x Old Mountain Farm Storm Brew'n
Zephyr was originally slated to be sold as a yearling, but now we are glad Zephyr did not sell as she has started to 'bloom' later in her first lactation and even more in her second lactation this year. She is from very slow to mature lines, so patience is needed! Please click here to go to Zephyr's page.
