Hello friends ๐Ÿ™‚

I will be taking deposits this year and reservations. I will likely not be retaining much; this year was a heavy retention year, lol. So if you want something, you sure better speak up ahead of time as doe kids are out the door fastest! The best quality bucklings will be offered, the rest will be moved out quickly.

2024 is going to be a busy year! I'm trying to get ahead of myself breeding this early LOL

Shooter x Sky bred 9/20/23, due February 12, 2024

This breeding will bring *B bucklings. I retained two kids from Sky last year for myself, Marathon (doe kid, black) and Voodoo (buck kid, black w/white). The other buck kid resides at Maxwell Meadows in Florida. Sky delivered length and depth of body to her 3 kids, a lot of dairy character, excellent brisket extension and incredible toplines.

If this breeding interests you, please let me know. More information will be available on the website soon.

* really long post *

My dearest friends Melissa Eagle & Justin Messick hosted their very first ever show this weekend called A Goat A Fair in Delaware! As soon as they said they wanted to host, I knew I was coming because that's what friends do, support their friends! These two are family to me, there's no way was I going to miss it! Well let me tell you, this was the easiest, least stressful, most navigable and pleasant show I've been to, to date! Everything and everybody seemed happy and content! They did an incredible job organizing and planning this event for never having done it before!

I was trying to decide who to take to this show; I didn't want to haul my big trailer so that limited me to the truck and cap. I can't bring my milk stand and milk machine with my truck cap (goat enthusiasts will say I'm not trying hard enough) but I'm a minimalist and like to keep things easy. Without the trailer that meant we would be taking possibly a tent or sleeping in the truck, after all, Delaware was 6 hours away so this was a Friday - Sunday adventure! I settled on OBFCNY DC Silhouette & Old School Creamery Vera GS (bred by Julie Mannix of Old School Creamery), our dry yearlings, to make the trip with us. Keenan is visiting for the summer so I left Liam and Keenan home to tend the farm as Aria is still in milk and Blackberry recently had her buckling.

I had no qualms about going it alone; I knew I could find an extra handler at the show because everyone is so willing to help one another. By happenstance, a couple weeks prior my friend Kristin Proper and I were chatting about showing and she said she would love to come to a show and watch us sometime! I said well, the next one I'm going to is in Delaware, you're welcome to come with me! I might be sleeping in a tent though, but I have cots! ๐Ÿคฃ MUCH TO MY SURPRISE, she was interested and said that sounds fun let's do it! Say what!? ๐Ÿคฃ Oh my! She held true to her words and off we went! She even bought white pants!! โค โค What a trooper! She had no idea what she was in for, and neither did I..but apparently Delaware was really showing off its weather capabilites this weekend! Friday was a stifling 90's with the "real feel" of 104! We helped our friends set up all the awards for the show, all the pens, arrange tables and chairs, and a few other small things in this crazy heat!

Thankfully, our lovely hosts and friends offered us a spot at home so we didn't have to sleep in a tent, so the air conditioning was MUCH APPRECIATED as well as the showers!! Thank you guys so much, I would have been lying in a ditch somewhere filthy and hot I'm certain ๐Ÿคฃ โค Storms raged through the area just missing us that night, but the emergency alert system kicked on at least 4 times with the last alert saying 60pmh winds and hail, seek shelter. It avoided us but unfortunately Bob Bartholemew was driving through some of that storm! He was okay though but it was touch and go for him! The lightening was absolutely insane!
Show day comes and last minute prep is gathered, its HOT already at 7:30 am. We headed to the show and what a day! Since we didn't bring any milkers, Kristin and I were open to handle. I helped with an Ober, Nubians, ND kids, and Kristin too, never having shown before, was a great sport and also helped handle for some friends! ๐Ÿค— Thank you! I kept making the joke, I only brought two juniors but I sure showed a lot of goats this weekend! ๐Ÿคฃ I was happy to help for sure though! โค

As the afternoon junior show rolls around, I start to get real excited! I've shown under Bob Bartholemew with my bucks and we have done quite well. Silhouette is sired by OBFCNY SK Cut To The Chase, a son of CH LaRoys Gr8 ILG Sterling Knight. Sterling Knight took 1st at two different shows under Bob in 2021 with one Reserve from him as well. We love Bob! Last year I showed under Jean Lucas with Silhouette and she placed 2nd in her age class, 1st going to our doe kid Hilltown Meadows Unforgettable from Tatiana Elizarova. Jean is such a charming woman, I love that we share the sentiment for dairy character! I haven't shown under Dan Laney yet, but had the opportunity to meet him at the ADGA National Convention last year here in Syracuse, NY. He was such a great guy, so enthusiastic about life, so joyful and uplifting and funny to boot! Seeing him judge was a real treat; he is genuinely so kind to EVERYONE!

Kristin and I did some more handling for friends in the junior classes but then we were up!

๐Ÿฅ‡๐Ÿ†Silhouette- 1st, Junior Grand Champion
๐Ÿฅˆ๐Ÿ†Vera - 2nd, Junior Reserve Grand Champion

Because Silhouette got Junior Grand Champion, that put her in the running for Junior Best in Show. Competition was fierce as always!! As I'm in line, Silhouette has absolutely had enough. The heat was getting to her and she was exhausted. Just like her grandsire Steel, she has inherited his naughtiness. She was side stepping, criss crossing, hippity hoppin all over while the other goats stood with discipline. *Steel embarrasses me in the Best In Show ring constantly* so she had to be sure she threw the same fit he always does ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ Anyways, there I am trying to get her to stand and Dan says, the Nigerian Dwarf is our Junior Best In Show today! Let me tell you, my jaw dropped and must have hit the floor, I did NOT see that coming!! I was beat, hot, sweating waterfalls and then became completely overwhelmed in a matter of seconds. The waterworks hit immediately and I thanked him graciously!! I had also cried when she took Junior Grand Champion under Dan and Reserve under Bob but I was able to hold my happy tears back fairly well. But for BIS...lordy that was it. Lol Kristin joined me in crying a bit and it was all such a blessing!
Under Judge Dan Laney

๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ’ฅ Silhouette - JUNIOR BEST IN SHOW

I think winning awards is mind blowing; I don't think I'll ever not cry even just a few tears. I'm a very sensitive person and cry easily when friends win and do well. Really, it's not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of life, but, it means a hell of a lot to me and I am just so darn happy to be here, let alone win anything! โค I am always humbled by the love of the goat community we have and the support from our friends; it's all worth it. Thank you everyone!
So here we are, with all these amazing emotions, feelings, gifts and friendships! It was a weekend to remember for sure!

Not even 30 mins after everyone left, we were loading up and helping shut down the show when I heard thunder looming close. I checked the radar and we were about to get hit! Check out the pictures of the storm rolling in! The lightening was insane again, hitting closely around us, and close by the tornado alerts went off and apparently only 3 miles away we heard there was a tornado ๐ŸŒช holy hell! It was VERY INTENSE but as soon as it passed we got back to it cleaning up after the show. The shower that night was real good - we were DISGUSTING ๐Ÿคฃ I slept much better that night. We woke up the next morning and hung out chit chatting about all the incredible things from the show. It was such a great time! Kristin and I loaded up and headed home. I think it took us close to 7 hours or so with the gas stops and restroom breaks. We wereexhausted! I went to bed around 1030 and woke up around 9am today! Woah!

I want to congratulate our hosts Melissa and Justin on their first A Goat A Fair show, congratulations to all who showed that day for showing is an immense amount of time, money, management and effort, to all the winners, thank you to our show team who all coordinated things like food, raffle, pens, ring stewards, all the incredible gifts, check in, ALL THE MOVING PARTS, and to our judges for making the trip to the show and judging our goats, thank you thank you!

๐Ÿฅณ Congratulations to Melissa & Justin on their placements and awards, as well as their Best in Show!!
๐Ÿฅณ Congratulations to Tatiana Elizarova for her placements, awards and also Best in Show!!

And if you put those pieces together, yes, the Nigerian Dwarfs took 3 Best in Shows that day! How incredible! What an honor! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

It was so great meeting so many friends in person and seeing them again like Christy Luse, Heather Valentine, Cedar Shade Farm (Cana & Karen Patterson), Ashley Clement-Clark, Marisa DeVito and more! And as always, our close goat family, Melissa & Justin and Tatiana โค

I think it's important to support the goats that influence your herd that are winning at Nationals; they're building credit to their names but also yours. Appreciation is fantastic!
.. BUT, I think it's INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT to support the breeders themselves who spend their hard earned money, time, hard work and dedication to these animals and their businesses that even make the effort to do all of this!!

**Shared from Katie Dean**

HOW MUCH FOR A GOAT?

Let me say a few words to you, yes you, the person who sends a text to just ask for the price. The person who calls and hears the price and says โ€œI can buy a cheaper goat somewhere elseโ€. I'll talk to you too; the person who doesn't care about papers because I want โ€œjust a pet and milk goat to raiseโ€.

No registered goat is โ€œjust a pet and milk goatโ€.

Behind every purebred goat is a BREEDER. I use capital letters to distinguish a breeder from a backyard operation where no thought goes into the animals being bred except making more of them, regardless of body stature or health.

If you choose to buy a goat from a reputable and quality breeder, this breeder is responsible for every goat produced on their farm.

This breeder sometimes skips vacations and events, misses sleep, and most of their personal time is dedicated to their goats and their well being. The truly passionate breeder puts everything they can into it. Not only for goats that are sold, but also for every customer who owns a piece of their heart and is now a member of their large family!

A breeder will get his hands dirty, often covered in everything that comes with goat ownership including but not limited to birth. Because that's what life is all about... in the midst of birth and death is life. The wheel that keeps spinning. A breeder conducts ultrasounds, analytics, emergency vet calls, vaccinations, registrations, researches pedigrees, deworming, hoof trims and provides the base start for the future of the goat in handling, milking and showing.

Last but not least, the BREEDER CHOOSES the family who is lucky enough to have one of their goats. Yes, you read correctly!

* A real breeder chooses who they sell to. *
There really is no compensation that can offset the investment a breeder has made. A good breeder has other criteria for those who want to continue their bloodline, why? Because breeding isn't a responsibility to take lightly, it's a lifestyle choice reserved ONLY for the few devoted people willing to sacrifice. Our goats needs to be cared for, managed properly, and bred with the highest regard and intention.

Since a goat is never โ€œjust a petโ€ he/she is the legacy of the breeder - as well as little one's best friend, a caretaker of someone in need, therapy for the elderly, and/or someone's whole world!

Responsible breeding and possession of many goats is a lifestyle and commitment many can not understand or handle. 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our lives revolve around the goats! Please understand, we are putting everything we can into our prized possessions! These are not just "goats" to us

** long post but it's important **

This past weekend we traveled to Wooster, OH to show with the North East Ohio Dairy Goat Association and boy oh boy was it a great weekend! We brought LaRoys Gr8 ILG Sterling Knight who is a foundation buck for us. Steel (barn name) has 3 daughters and 2 sons here on the farm, as well as at least 4 grand daughters here. He has sired several others who are out doing their work on other farms from Arkansas to NJ and in between!

Steel produces capacious udders on his daughters to boot; his breeders Keith LaRoy & Kim said his dam was their best milker! The proof is in the pudding with OBFCNY SK Vosges HautChocolat milking close to a half gallon at her best here on our farm (I have videos to prove it on over night fills) and OBFCNY SK Siren in Arkansas with Matt-Kayleigh Wooten producing 4.4lbs/day at her highest as a FF

Hello everyone! ๐Ÿ‘‹

We have been up to our eyeballs in goats! I like to tell people that I'm on "goat house arrest" because I need to be here for all these births and this year's new adventure, bottle babies!

The effort to keep these babies fed is quite a lot but we are very much enjoying these sweet souls! We have only a handful of does left to freshen and then show season will be upon us! Goat life never ends!

This little cutie was born just the other day from "OBFCNY T Make Way" (May) and "Lena's Kid's Dew Ya Luv Me" (Dude). One doeling will be retained to carry on the namesake legacy we are creating with this dam line.

We have many, many more to add to the website and we are taking progress pictures with these babies' development each and every week. Once the wee ones get properly unfolded and confident standing for the bottle, we will have those pictures updated.

Sorry we are behind! As most of us know, this time of year is very stressful with not a lot of sleep to go around. Please be patient as I am trying to get everything updated. If you need more photos of anyone please let me know so I can help. Our website is behind in udder photos but I do have them in my phone. I'm working on it I'm working on it ๐Ÿ˜

For now, just so everyone knows, I am alive just buried under goats for the time being ๐Ÿ˜

Xoxo,

Danielle

Chocolat didn't place in the top 10 due to not being even close to full (udder) as other milkers across the board that day as well as her being less mature than others in her age class.

Our Story

We started with the purchase of the property. With 24 acres of hardwood forest, we had lots of options! Both of us were very interested in having our own farm, and we still are constantly are trying to think of new ways to develop our land. In spring, 2017, we decided to get chickens. We hand-raised the chicks so that they were very used to being handled and comfortable with us. The goal of the chickens was to have farm fresh eggs, and occasional chicks. We also have guinea fowl, a Broad Breasted Turkey, and 2 Pomeranian Saddleback Geese, and may be selling keets and goslings when available. The chickens are great pest control and will eat mice and bugs. The Guineas are great for bug control, and they notify you and the other birds when there's a reason to be cautious. The turkey is beautiful and showy, and the geese have the job of lawnmowers and guard dogs. Have you ever been chased by a goose? They're mean! Then, we had the idea of goats. We both had our favorites, so we got one of each, male and female. Today, we have 10 in our herd, comprised of Nigerian Dwarves, Nubians, and Snubians. We sell goat kids when in season, typically 2x a year. We FIRMLY believe in free range feeding and caring for all of our farm animals. In the summer months, the birds are given a small amount of grain in the morning for balanced nutrition, but eat bugs and vegetation for the remainder of the day. We noticed that if we don't offer grain, the birds wander into our neighbors yard in search of new places to hunt. Why did the chicken cross the road? Now you know. The goats are the same. In the summer they are free ranging outside of their pen. In the winter months, we provide 2 different feed options to the chickens for best quality, and same with the goats, plus they receive high quality, second cut hay. We believe that the nutrition that our animals are getting from the variety of food sources is optimum. So, your products that you get from us will be nothing but honest, sustainable food sources fed to our beloved pets.
