You know how they say that the camera loved Marilyn Monroe? As much as it loved her, it despises Blizzard- I cannot get a decent shot of this doe- certainly not one that shows off the 38 she scored in rear udder height. Take my word for it though, this is a doe who just keeps getting better with age. She is long and level with nice blending, a great front end assembly, a wide rump, lots of dairyness, and very good angularity. Her udder is well attached and has excellent texture and plumb teats, although I would like to see them a bit larger. She has matured into being one of our larger does with tremendous body capacity and width, though she retains her dairy character at the same time. She earned her milking star at a one day milk test at the AGS National Show where she produced over 4.2lbs- outstanding for a first freshening yearling, and good enough to earn her a spot on the Top 10 high milk for one day test in 2008!

Blizzard has proved that not only is she standing the test of time by scoring VEEE 91 at five years of age, but that she is passing on her good looks-- her daughter, Black Ice (by Guy Noir), scored a 92 on Linear Appraisal and was the 2015 Total Performer at the ADGA National Show, and another daughter, Snownamie (by Harvest Moon),earned an LA score of 90 as a second freshener, and produced the 2015 ADGA National Champion.

Tesla (named after the electric sports car, not the band) has been a favorite from the beginning. She is a long, elegant doe, with smoothness of blending, straight front legs, a wide rump and lots of dairy character. Her udder is high and wide with a tremendous area of udder attachment and excellent texture that milks down very well. She has this quiet sense of dignity about her. She would never think to bleat loudly (for that would be undignified) rather, she will quietly slip into your lap or gently nibble at your shirt until you notice she is there. She is pictured here as a first freshener.

Tesla has always settled very easily, and we think she probably has a few years of kids left in her future- her dam is still bright eyed at 13 years old in her retirement home. However, the overly hot conditions being what they are on our farm (the majority of the summer has seen highs here of 110-121), we'd like to find a less hot climate for her. We are willing to consider the right offer for her, so get in touch if you are interested.

Lots of dairy character, spring of rib, angularity, with a very strong front end assembly, straight front legs, and one of the better rump angles in our herd. Every time she has been in the show ring, she has gotten complimented on her outstanding general appearance, upstandingness at the withers, and smoothness of blending. She has large milkable teats, wonderful capactiy and udder texture. We really like how she is passing on her quality to her offspring, which include CH Castle Rock Abraham Darby, SGCH Castle Rock Wildfire VEEE 90, CH Castle Rock Sunsilk EEEE 91, and Castle Rock Allegro EEEE 91- who is just one leg away from her Permanent Championship.

Tuscan still had her buns in the oven when we had our 2010 linear appraisal, so she was not able to participate that session.

Luna is a very small, well put together doe, who would probably do better in the show ring if she were just a wee bit taller. It is somewhat frustrating that a doe from a breed that is supposed to be small has gotten comments like "she lacks the stature to move her further up the line", especially as she is very proportional and everything comes together in an eye pleasing way. She has very nice dairy character, sharpness, strong pasturns, good front end assembly and length of body. Her udder is held up with a snug MSL, has butter soft texture and very good teat placement, and her capacity continues to hold up very well as she is moving into the "aged doe" category. Luna left our herd as a kid, but I jumped at the chance to bring her back when it came up, and am so happy I did- she's a very affectionate doe (one might even call her agressively friendly since she will shove her head under your hand while you attempt to pet someone else), who makes me smile just about every day.

The summer of 2017 has been a brutally hot one in California, and we had some crazy swings in temperature- from reasonable summer heat to extremely hot with little overnight cooling. This heat triggered listeriosis in Luna, and after three weeks of intensive treatment, she pulled through, but is still showing some side effects of the infection-- mainly in that she kind of looks like she had a stroke. As of now, I'm happy that she looks like she is keeping her condition, but her breeding days are probably behind her.

Roxanne is a very long necked, angular, and wide doe with good blending and a smoothly blended front end assembly with a flat topline.  Even though still small, she has a tremendous amount of width between her hocks on the move- a trait that runs pretty strongly on the maternal side of her family tree. While she is a long bodied doe, I would like to see a little more width of body when viewed from above. She has soft udder texture, good teat placement and size, a strong foreudder, and is very easy to hand milk. As a five year old, she started to really hitting her stride, winning quite a few champion challenges, and Best Udder awards with an udder that is high, wide, capacious, and well attatched, with a strong MSL, and well placed teats. She continued to do well as a six year old, racking up her 20th Best of Breed award and winning a Best Udder in Show against the big girls. As a seven year old, she made it clear that she was so over this showing thing, and we figured with 21 Best of Breed wins, she has earned the right to relax at home.

Penny Wise seems to have really come into her own as a milker. She's the oldest kid I've ever attempted to get on a bottle and has always been a little wild as a result. Now that she is being milked twice a day, she's completely friendly and will jump over other does in the milker stall in order to personally greet me at milking time! She cracks me up! She is a very, very dairy doe with sharpness, angularity, flat bone, wonderful spring of rib, super pliable dairy skin, and look at that stretchy elegant neck. She has a very capacious udder with a strong MSL, large well defined teats with open orifices, and good teat placement. On linear appraisals, she has earned strong scores in strength, dairyness, rump angle, rump width, rear udder height, and medial suspensory ligament. Her second and third freshenings have produced an incredibly capacious udder, and that combined with her uphill profile and dairy character led to three easy grand champion wins in a row- our second doe to win all three champion legs at one show. Unfortunately, she did not freshen in 2015, so we were unable to include her on milk test or linear apraisal.

As a kid, Black Ice was a rather unassuming doe who spent most of her time just hanging out at the farm. Finally, I decided to take her to her first show, and oh! the! drama! just to get her to walk out of the field. I was having second thoughts about show time, and wouldn't you know it- she walked into the ring and acted like showing was her favorite thing in the world, and ended up going reserve. What a diva! She has wonderful capacity, udder texture, high rear udder, medial suspensory ligament, teat placement, a very smoothly blended foreudder, and area of udder attachment. Like most of the does in my Sara line, she milks down extremely well and easily with large teats and open orifices. She has increasing width and depth throughout, her front legs are well placed under her shoulders, with good brisket extension, though ideally, those shoulders would be a bit tighter. Black Ice also has one of the widest rumps in the herd, a trait she shares with her dam. After doing so well on Linear Appraisal as a seven year old, I decided to take her to a show for champion challenge, and wouldn't you know, she went and won a best udder of breed and then Best Doe in Show! Less than a month later, she traveled to the ADGA National Show and was first placed aged doe, and was the 2015 Total Performer for Nigerians, and in 2016, she won two more Best Doe in Show ribbons! She has really seemed to enjoy going to shows as an eight year old, though I suppose well timed potato chips and lots of extra scratches may have something to do with that.

Our first kid of the 2009 kidding season was this lovely polled blue eyed doe kid, and as I was drying her off, I said to Andy "this one is definitely mine!" I guess she heard me, because even though she was dam-raised she runs to me like a bottle baby. She's long and level on the move, has a very elegant neck, lots of space between the ribs, and has a socked on udder with large, easy to milk teats with very good texture. She went through a very awkward second freshening- notice her 2012 LA score was the same for her second freshening as for her first-- and I almost decided to sell her, but there was a part of me that thought I should just be patient and wait for the next freshening. Her third freshening has definitely rewarded my patience, with her udder being high, wide, well attached, and pretty much everything I was hoping for, and we are very happy to see that her score has in fact, gone up.

Siren spent much of her first outting as a junior in the show ring making strong attempts at bipedalism, and did this again as a first freshening two year old. Fortunately, she eventually got used to the show ring, and managed to walk on all four feet long enough to finish her championship. She has freshened with a very capacious udder that has excellent texture (like buttah!), a strong medial, high rear, smooth fore, plumb teats, and is socked on everywhere. She has improved dairy character over her dam, a nice front end assembly, and is deep in the heel with short, high pasturns. She is always determined to get her share of attention when out in the barn yard, and usually walks up and stops right in front of me with an expression of "Ta-da! I have arrived!" on her face. She has passed on her good looks and udder capacity to daughters GCH Castle Rock Helen of Troy 4*M and CH Castle Rock Leucosia 4*M, both of whom have also won Best Doe in Show ribbons.

River, littermate sister of our buck, Harvest Moon, reminds me so much of her dam in both look and personality. She does show more angularity at this age than her dam did, but other wise, is very similar in build, being small, well put together, and having more dairy character than you would expect just from looking at her. She freshened with an udder that is living up to my hopes- high and wide in the rear, a very nice medial, plumb teats, lots of attachment, good capacity, and a smooth foreudder. During our 2012 Linear Appraisal, River scored a 40 in rear udder height, and scored very well in dairyness, foreudder attachment, and rear udder arch. River is also a bit of a ham, which I find endlessly endearing. River has two daughters who have both finished their championships and have earned their Superior Genetics designations- SGCH Castle Rock Moon Beam, and SGCH Castle Rock River of Rain.

Sarafina embodies so much of what I am aiming for in my herd. In 2011, she and Annika tied for the highest "dairyness" score in our herd, and Sarafina topped that off with an E for udder texture. She's sharp and elegant with flat bone, wide spacing between the ribs, thin dairy skin, angularity, and one of the best (widest, flatest) rumps in our herd (she got an E on rump during Linear Appraisal). Sarafina has a very good rear udder arch, easily walks around her capacious udder on very sound rear legs. She is a quiet, dignified doe with good milk stand manners.

Boo is a member of our second set of sextuplets to be born on our farm, and another kid I decided to keep before she was even completely dry. She is very well put together with good angularity, length of body, width between the hocks, a wide level rump, with good depth and width of barrel. She didn't get to many shows until her third freshening (in 2013), but finished her championship quite handily in one weekend. Her udder is quite soft, capacious, high, and wide with a nice MSL, and large teats that express easily. She's more dairy than she looks with a very strong will to milk. She is not milking quite as much as we would have expected this year, however, producing quintuplets does seem to have an impact on how well a doe produces, so we won't hold it against her.

Annika, as is typical of her dam line, was a bit of a "sleeper" doe- in spite of having a high score for dairyness, and one of our higher yearling first freshener appraisal scores, she was rather overlooked in the show ring. However, as a second and third freshener, she showed us a tremendous area of udder attachment and capacity, good teat placement, and a high, wide rear udder, which tended to carry her to the head of the line, and earned her several rosettes. In 2013, she freshened a few days after the Nigerian Specialty show at REDGA (which was frustrating as I had really wanted to show her there), but finished her permanent championship at her first show of the year. She is very clean over the rump, stretchy, smoothly blended, with plenty of depth and width, and is one of our milkiest does. If anyone could make me regret skipping 305 day milk testing in 2013, it would be this doe. I'd like to see her a bit tighter in the shoulders. Her daughters by Cleveland Sage, SGCH Castle Rock Angelika VEEE 90 and CH Castle Rock Annika, have inherited their dam's dairyness and productivity.

Snownamie has been a favorite from the beginning, and I am quite happy with how she has matured. She has good smoothness of blending, angularity, length of body, strong scores in dairyness and udder attachment, and an excellent head, though she could use a little more tightness in the shoulders. She has a very well balanced udder that is held high with a very strong foreudder and MSL, excellent udder texture, and teats that are a good size and easy to express. This blue eyed doe is one of our friendliest girls, and she prefers to follow us to the milk room, rather than run ahead as most of the other does do, wagging her tail all the way and looking quite pleased with herself for having some manners. We are extremely proud of Snownamie for producing the 2015 National Champion and Best Udder (seen directly below)- Flash was her very first kid! Another one of her daughters, Polar Vortex, easily finished her permanent championship as a first freshening two year old. She is such a delight to have on the milk stand that I am incredibly disappointed that due to a non-resident of the farm not following directions, she now has scar tissue in one of her teat canals, making it very, very time consuming to keep her in milk. We probably will never get her back to the show ring or back onto DHIA as a result of this, and whether she will be able to participate in future LA sessions is also in question.

Flash never made it into the show ring as a junior because every time I went to pull her out of the pasture to get her ready for a show, she was in yet another funky/awkward growth stage, and ended up staying home. She is our ugly duckling of a kid who has turned into quite the swan! Her first show weekend was all it took to win her permanent championship. We had a Nigerian Specialty show just a week after she completed her permanent championship, and she was once more GCH, and part of our first place Dam and Daughter entry, and our first place Best Three Does entry, and she repeated all of those wins again in August at the Sonoma County Fair. In 2015, she started the year out rough, with a challenging delivery on a Friday the 13th, which lived up to its bad reputation, and suffering a few complications from that. After lots of care, she finally bounced back, and bounced back in a big way! After winning National Champion and National Best Udder, she went on to be part of our first place Best Three Females, and Best Dairy Herd entries. I love her general appearance, with that long lean neck, blending into her withers, and a great topline. Her front legs are set right under her shoulders, she has increasing depth and width of barrel, and her back legs are angular with good width between the hocks. Her udder is capacious and well attached, with soft texture, and large easy to milk teats. She is so feminine and elegant, but clearly also a powerful doe without being course.

Sunsilk is a long bodied doe with lots of depth of body and really nice general appearance with good blending and she shows a very nice amount of dairy character. She has a very nice front end assembly with straight front legs, and I appreciate the angularity on this doe. Her udder is well attached, with good teat placement and texture. Time and space constraints kept her out of the show ring until her second freshening as a three year old, where she promptly went out and won three grand champion ribbons and two Best of Breeds- more impressive to me is that this meant she beat herdmate GCH CRF Castle Rock Roxanne two times in champion challenge!

Another daughter of Harvey with smoothness of blending, a level topline, and angularity. She has short strong pasterns and depth of heel, straight front legs, a wide, flat rump and good brisquet extension. During our 2012 Linear Appraisal, she got very strong scores in dairyness, rump angle, foreudder attachment, and rear udder height. She has very soft udder texture, and even though her teats could be larger, her orifices are very open, and she milks down really well. I would like to see her tighter in the toes and her teats placed a bit closer to her MSL. I can't believe how much udder capacity she has for such a little thing too. She's one of the friendliest of our friendly does, and usually has a much more pleasant expression on her face, but was not happy that even though she was standing still, I was not giving her constant wither scratches.

Raspberry is a tightly put together doe, who is very upstanding at the withers, and has such upright pasturns that she looks like she is walking on tip toes. She combines many very strong features- a wide, flat rump, good spring of rib, strong general appearance, lots of width between the hocks, and angularity. She has a high rear udder held in place by a strong MSL with strong lateral and foreudder attachment, and our most recent appraiser said Raspberry had one of the best udders she had seen in the breed.

Wildfire is a very dairy, upstanding doe, with tremendous length of body, an excellent shoulder assembly, nice angularity, and elegance. Her udder is well attached, soft, and pliable, with a strong MSL, and plumb teats. Ideally, she could use tighter toes and more depth of heel.

I'm considering letting Wildfire go for the right price to the right home- contact me if you are interested with an offer.

(Rosasharn's TL Sitka Spruce ++B +*S x SGCH-MCH Castle Rock Once Ina Blue Moon 2*D'VG')

A gorgeous high headed, elegant, deep, wide, long bodied doe with striking blue eyes and lots of dairy character. Her udder is soft, with a strong MSL, very good teat size and placement, with good lateral and rear attachments. The judge who gave her her third leg commented that even though Moon Beam's udder was capacious, she moved around the ring like silk- she has plenty of width in the rear and doesn't have to throw her legs to walk around that udder. She stood second at the National Show to the doe who was the Reserve National Champion, and was one of four does to get pulled out for the Best Udder competition. Like her dam, Moon Beam is quite the ham, though unlike her dam, she mutters under her breath-- I think from trying to solve the mystery of how to fit herself into one of our pockets.

Floe is yet another one of our does who was pretty at about a month of age, then gave me little ulcers with how she was developing as a yearling. I think the spouse got tired of hearing "UUUUHHHHGGG! Floe is SO AWKWARD!" because I said it so often. Luckily, he doesn't have to hear it anymore, because she freshened and has become lovely again. She's one of our more powerful does (fans of Nancy Drew would recognize her as a "traditionally built" girl), but leads the herd in the production index (she's at 126% of expected production for her age), and nothing seems to slow her down in the milk bucket. She is deep and wide, and has an udder that is wide and attached all over, with teats that are easily hand milked. Ideally, her rump could be a bit wider, and she could use a bit more dairy character, but I wouldn't change much else about this easy going, friendly girl.

Vortex is a doe with lots of dairy character- flatness of bone, thin dairy skin, depth of body, and a capacious, easy to milk udder. I like her width of muzzle. depth of body, brisket extension, and really good udder capacity for a first freshener. She had triplets, which definitely seemed to take more out of her than we expected, and keeping weight on her has been a little more challenging than it is for most of our herd (we usually have issues with over conditioning rather than under), though she seemed to really mature over the summer to finish easily after two and a half months off from the show ring. She has a quiet rolling bleat and talks to me almost all of the time when I am within view, which is so very endearing.

This is one of those does I decided to keep as soon as she hit the ground. She is very long bodied, with all sorts of dairy strength going on- width, depth, udder capacity, femininity, a long, wide rump and width between the hocks. At her first not-freezing-cold show as a first freshener, she easily finished her permanent championship. She can be a little bit of a ditz when it comes to the milk stand (you do this twice a day, seven days a week-- how can you possibly be confused about where your head goes?!? FYI, into the stancheon, just like all of those other times), but she tries to make up for it by being a heck of a milker, and super sweet. I am so happy to have another Siren daughter in the herd!

Nikita is a very nicely put together doe, and a repeat of the breeding that produced big sister SGCH Castle Rock Angelika VVEE 91. This is one of our end of the year bottle babies, who ended up a little on the standoffish side- she never comes up to say hi, but is completely calm and easty to handle when you get her. She shows us dairy character, nice depth and width of body, plenty of width between the hocks, and smoothness of blending. She freshened with a very capacious well attached udder that is butter soft and easy to milk.
