Levi was the first & only kid born on the farm in 2013 so he is quite spoiled. I am really happy with his conformation. He has a long elegant neck that blends smoothly into his body, lots of dairy character, sharp withers, and nice angulation. He has an uphill stance & always carries his head really high. He always looks like he is prancing & strutting his stuff. I love his markings & adorable little face too. His dam has large easy to milk teats & and a really strong MSL. Her capacity is very good for a doe that only had a single kid. His dad comes from a long line of amazing Nigerians. I can't wait to see some freshened daughters out of this little boy. Hopefully I can get some clipped pictures with Levi set up a little better next year - he is still young & has a major case of ADHD so just getting a picture that is not a blur is quite an accomplishment at this point! Levi also has wattles like his mom.

Stuart is a very sweet mellow boy. He is right on my heals everywhere I go. I hope he passes his personality on to his kids. This guy has some amazing udder genetics. His sire is the full younger brother to CH Poppy Patch RC Poppy Seed & littermate brother of Poppy Patch RC Cherish who both have amazing udders. His paternal sister Poppy Patch CM Catalina is a beautiful doe with an amazing udder as well. These animals can be seen at www.poppypatchfarm.com . I can't wait to get some daughters out this boy! Stuart is sharp angular with loose dairy skin (which makes clipping difficult!) & correct feet and legs.

Gizmo and his siblings Jasper & Lily were purchased from Crickview Ranch in Northeastern Oregon. They are not registered, but are wonderful pets that produce the softest cashmere type fiber I have ever felt. Their fiber sheds out in late February/early March. Once they shed they look like Nigerians, only a bit larger. Gizmo is a very sweet boy. Like his brother Jasper, he loves to go for walks & is very well mannered on a leash. When I walk in their pen with a collar in my hand, Gizmo & Jasper will race over to me to see who can get their head in it first. Gizmo is about the same height & length as Jasper, but has a more refined dairy conformation & weighs a bit less. He is very smart too. Both of them will walk over to you & put their foot up on your leg hoping they can convince you to scratch their armpits. Silly boys!
