Last saturday was our last show of the season and it ended up being such a fun weekend with our friends and goats. The SCDGA did an amazing job with this show/fundraiser and Rancho De Lagos was a great venue. Big thanks to Renee, Holli & the volunteers for all their hard work and the judges Kris Fraley & Russell Sorbo.
Laz’s pigeons are so beautiful!
If you ask me what makes me happy…😉 this is one of those things.
Cheers to this hardworking guy!! The last 4 weeks have been hectic with shows, buck collection and linear appraisal. Now he gets to relax for a bit before breeding season gets into full swing.
SCDGA Raffle for Wolfivan CQ Kentucky Bourbon Straws! Lucky winner is Tracy Clevenger.
Our Linear Appraisal was a success! It was such a great learning experience and turned out to be an amazing day even though we were nervous about having our does appraised in September, when most of them kidded in early spring and with our yearling bucks being in full rut. The highlight of the day for us was our 2 year olds. Our home bred doe Amores Farm Lexus (Lexi) scored VEEE91 as a 2F and our appraisar was thrilled with Lexi and her udder scores are FUA39, RUH 38 & RUA 39!! Our other fabulous 2 year old, IlenesRascals Love Bite scored VEEE90 as a 2F! Another highlight was our 1 year old IlenesRascals Wildflower scoring +VEE87 and Amores Farm Raven scoring VV+V86, both this yearlings looked amazing!! Our whole herd made us so proud yesterday and we are feeling very blessed.
Linear Appraisal 2022! The day is finally here. Big shout out to my hubby Laz for all his hard work getting our herd looking their best for this big day!
Look at this handsome boy🙂

Yesterday was a day we will never forget! We have another finished Grand Champion (ADGA pending) in our herd. Our amazing and very special doe to our hearts, Hidden Hills G Sweet Valentine 4*M AR (4 years old) took all 3 rings at the SCDGA Summer San Diego Classic Dairy Goat Show and was BDIS x3!!! We added Valentine as a kid to our herd from our friend Jennifer Davis @ Hidden Hills Nigerians and we are so grateful for that as it got us into showing. We took 6 milkers and 3 juniors and they all did exceptionally well. Other than Valentine’s stellar day the highlights were having our girls in the Champion line up in all 3 rings for the milkers, Straightway Farm SG Snickers 3*M AR won a Reserve Grand Champion, our homebred does did great as Amores Farm Amazing Dancer won her yearling class twice, Amores Farm Lexus 4*M AR won the 2 year old class for all 3 rings and one of our favorite keepers this year from an AI breeding, Amores Farm Fancy Love won Junior Grand Champion! It was an extremely hot (100 degree weather) and long day for everyone and we want to thank the 3 judges Aaron Carter, Justin Basset and Jeff Klein, the show organizer Renee Wolfivan, the SCDGA and all its volunteers for an amazing and very organized show with great food. Big thanks to all our friends who helped us show our goats, specially Dani Prieur who showed Valentine beautifully in all 3 champion line ups and BIS rings. Gotta love having a chair for each us!! And last but not least huge shout out to all the exhibitors who came despite the heat wave and kept smiling and wiping their sweat through it all.

Update on Wiggles!
Wiggles is 10 weeks old and doing fantastic. Laz gave her 1st clip and we were surprised about what was under her coat. She is looking so nice and is the sweetest goat. She knows she is the princess around here.

As we continue to grow our herd, we have to make room for up and coming does that we retained from our breedings this past spring. Cuts are so hard to make but we have to keep our numbers down for our sanity.
Amores Farm Willow 4*M is a 2 year old 2F on milk test. Performance herd preferred.

My boy vs tiny chicken egg🤣😂🤣 ￼￼￼￼￼
Our kidding season ended on July 22nd so it’s time to share our stats. Overall we had a great kidding season but we did have some heartbreak as is expected with kidding out goats but the loses are never easy. We kidded out 25 does, the most we’ve ever done and learned so much in the process. So thankful our herd is doing well and even Tootsie who needed a cesarean section is doing great! So grateful this year again for our goat friends who always are willing to listen to the ups and downs of kidding season and give us sage advise. Big thanks to Jennifer Davis for always being willing to come for deliveries and even doing a delivery for us when we were away at a goat show!
Here are our stats:
68 kids born Feb-July 2022
Days pregnant ranged from 139-153
Day time deliveries: 18
Night time deliveries: 7
Out of the 25 deliveries I only missed 7 because I was at work, which is pretty amazing considering I work full time but my hubby Laz and our son Eli had it all under control as always. I am so blessed we get to do this as a family and the memories we make with our goats are priceless.
We are so grateful for each family that opened up their hearts to our kids and we couldn’t do this without your support and interest in our herd.
Now time to start finalizing our 2023 breeding plans!
