It is hard to explain to non-goat people about the passion that a person acquires when owning goats. Many goat owners look at their herd and see intelligence and beauty. Recently, my husband and I traveled to pick up several does. Among them was this gorgeous creature whose name is Angel - she is, indeed, ethereal. Can other people see what we see as myotonic breeders or do they just see "a goat"? I wonder.

Did you ever have a doe that could be mated with a bug and she would produce awesome kids? I have one, STA Taffy. This year, she gave me triplets. The doe, Cashmere, was sold to Jill Wallace of Wallace Crazy Acres in Illinois. I have one buck for sale who is spectacular, but I am keeping this awesome little guy. I think he is good enough to go permanent Grand Champion. Unlike some of my bucks that tend to go through an awkward growing stage, he just keeps getting better and better. Yes, I admit, I am in love with a stinky buck! Keep your eyes on Bogart

Who would have thought that I would become totally in love with goats? I took my camera to the barn this morning and took some snapshots of my herd queen Missy (BTR Mystique). While she has always been special in my eyes, it was last year at the Arkansas show that she won Grand Champion. I still remember what the judge said, “I always wrap my hand around the front leg biceps. This is the first doe in my judging career where my fingers do not touch – amazing muscles.” Last fall, I bred her to Hillside Acres Pretty Special, a Permanent Grand Champion buck. Missy had twins, a boy and girl. Her daughter, Magnolia, is “a chip off the old block” and will probably be queen someday. I can’t get over how much they look alike.
