First let me welcome you to my web site and thank you for
showing interest in my animals. My name is Patricia and I live
in Nyssa, OR with my husband and my sons, Buddy and Levi. I have been raising dairy
goats since 1991. My herd began with 4-H animals of
several different breeds. It didn't take long for me to realize that LaManchas were my favorite and I have been raising them ever
since. Our Toggenburgs began in 2003 with starts from the
Whisper'N' Pines, and the P-K-acres herds. In 2004,Buddy decided
that Saanens were his favorite breed and with the help of Laurie
Acton, Buddy's 1st Saanen
joined the herd. Saanens truly are the gentle giants of the
dairy goat world, and it is so fun to see Buddy out with
his big girls. Buddy's Saanen herd is going strong with some
really beautiful animals.
2008- We attended 4
shows and did extremely well at all of them. We finished 4
animals this year- CH Olentangy
SGCH Huricane-PM SFTC Destiny,
SFCC S-berry Tart,
GCH Des-Ruhigestelle Apricot,
and brought home several other CH legs. Tart was RGCH and BU at
the LaMancha district specialty as well as 1st place dam &
daughter with Cee, and 1st place sire & progeny with Champ.
At the State Fair we had the GCH/BOB Togg Sr. doe, GCH and RCH
Togg Jr. does, RGCH LaMancha Sr. doe, BOB Saanen, BOB Recorded
Grade, RGCH Alpine, and the BDIS, as well as multiple high
animals and group classes. We were Premier Toggenburg Exibitor and Premier Toggenburg
Breeder for the third year in a row.
Linear Appraisal was another highlight this year. 46 animals
were appraised. 29 of those had a score of 90 or greater, and
our average herd score for all 4 breeds was 89.93 with 11 of
those being 1st fresheners. SGCH Des-Ruhigestelle
Essencia received an EEEE 93! Way to go Senci and way to go
Lauren Acton for breeding another spectacular dairy goat.
2007- Was a busy year for us and we only attended two
shows, the Nationals in Gillette, WY and our State Fair. We did
very well at both shows. We made the cut with almost everyone
that we took to nationals and had several in the top 10 in their
individual classes. At State Fair we had the GCH Togg Sr.
doe and the RGCH LaMancha Sr. doe, multiple 1st and 2nd place
animals, Premier Toggenburg Exibitor and Premier Toggenburg
Breeder for the second year in a row.
2006- I attended several local shows and finished 2 more
does CH Huricane-PM Cruises Twinkie and GCH P-K-Acres Kabukiís
well as one of my Sr. herd sires *B SGCH South-fork Charming
Champlain. I also picked up several other legs on various
animals, including 3 dry legs, and 2 milking legs. What a year!
2005-We traveled to Spokane and I attended my first
National Show. I have always dreamed of going to Nationals and
making the "cut". I didn't care if I stood at the very end of
the line (after the "cut"); I just wanted to be able to stay in
the ring. I headed for the National Show with 11 does. Of these
11 does, all made the cut and not one placed lower than 12th in
their individual classes. YEAH!!! My Toggenburgs placed 3rd
place Jr. kid, 11th place Intermediate kid, 9th place Sr. kid,
5th place Jr. get, 5th place Best 3 Juniors, 11th place 2 yr. old,
10th place 3 yr. old, 10th place 4 yr. old, 7th and 12th placed
Aged does, and 7th place Dairy Herd. My LaManchas placed 11th
place Jr. kid, 4th place Intermediate kid, and 8th place Milking
yearling. I cannot express how proud I am of my goats and what
an accomplishment that was in my life, I still feel as if I am
walking on clouds.
TERMS - I am on official milk test so official milk records
are available on request. My herd is CL free and I use a
strict CAE prevention program. All births are attended to the
best of my ability; teats are also taped (just in case). All
kids are fed heat treated colostrum, the milk is pasteurized or milk
replacer is used. Kids are weaned at 3 months of age.
must keep the herd at a manageable size, so most of this years
kid crop will be available for purchase. I will take deposits on
bucks out of first fresheners, but I retain the final decision
on that sale until after the doe has freshened and I am able to
evaluate her. A 100.00 deposit is required to hold the kid of
your choice. The balance is due within 2 weeks of the
notification of birth. Personal checks are gladly accepted on
deposits, but I request that the balance be paid with certified
(money order, cashiers check, and I now accept PayPal as well ).I
ask that you also make a second choice, just in case the kid of
your choice is not born. If the kid of your choice is not born,
I will gladly refund your deposit or it can be carried over to
the following kidding season at this year prices. Sorry, no
refunds of deposits on cancelled orders. All shipping costs are
the responsibility of the buyer (including crate, health
certificate etc.). Shipping is from the Boise ID airport. If you
would like to pick up your kid at the farm; the barn doors are
always open. Show quality milkers as well as dairy replacement
animals are available
each spring, please contact us for availability.
POLICIES - I will only sell kids that I feel
are of good quality and in my opinion, are structurally sound.
If for some reason an animal is found to be genetically unsound
or infertile, it will be replaced. Requirements for replacement
are: 1- A signed document from a licensed veterinarian on
letter head, stating that that the problem is of genetic origin.
2- No progeny may be kept or registered from this animal.
