2014 Kids

Nap time for the kiddos, April 2014

 
We appraised 13 kids in June of 2013- All Ec's and V's in every structural catagory and either EC overall or V overall.  We are VERY excited about the consistency our breeding program is bringing.  We also had a new 90 and a new 91 in the herd- both 3 year olds.
 
We appraised  9 kids in June of 2012-  All Ec's and V's in every structural catagory, not even one +.   Kids all Ec (5 of them) or V (4 of them).
 
Due to schedule conflicts we were unable to show in 2014.    A doeling we sold this year,  Fir Meadow DNL Elegance pulled a GCH and BJDIS (best junior doe in show) win in NE Washington state in August!  Way to go Ellie and Katie for taking such good care of her :).    Those of you that are familiar with the herds showing in WA state know that was no small task.  We are blessed and thankful.

Else

Fir Meadow Cori Else  (Elsa) 3/5/14  black and tan doeling  Retained
s- *B Fir Meadow Cor Coriander (dam Blau Enzian)
d- SG Fir Meadow Xon Yodel 7* M, 2 GCH legs
 
Really long, tall, solid boned yet dairy doeling that we are excited to watch mature as she combines all the best attributes of her pedigree.  Very correct (she just might be as close to a perfect goat as can be bred, of course awaiting that udder) . It looks like she's going to be quite a large doe similar to Rosine and she loves her human lap time.  Else's name is both German and Norwegian for noble. She is retained for our herd as her dam is getting older.

Fir Meadow Dnl Edelwiess 3/23/14  small star, black/tan doeling  Retained
s- *B Tempo Cai Daniel  (Lucky Star Cai x Tempo Hannah)
d- SG Fir Meadow Alp Enzian 4*M
 
We were really really pleased when Enzian presented us with beautiful doelings!  We think so highly of her that we have used her son in her breeding program and will now be using her grandson, Exclusive.   A beautiful, strong, smoothly blending doeling for us to watch mature.  I am extremely pleased with the Daniel kids and temperments.

RETAINED
s- *B Fir Meadow Cor Coriander (Courageous x Enzian)
d- GCH Fir Meadow Val Yarrow 5*M
 
Very correct and darling sungau doeling from her beautiful with best udder in show winning dam.  We love the smooth blending and rear leg set on this doeling as well as her huggability.   She has been purchased and will be moving to Idaho.   I have kept her littermate brother as a jr herdsire this year.   I absolutely love this doeling and she was a presale, that the buyer decided to get a milker from us instead,  so we are very pleased to have her staying in our herd.

d- Fir meadow Cor Cherish 2*M
 
This doeling has a lot of who's who in Fir Meadow behind her- Valiant (LA91 (sire/dam LA91)), Rejoicing (LA91 dam 5K Melody LA92), Xochitl (LA92), Rosine(LA92), and Kastdemur's 'Goodie' the 2009 colorama doe we had purchased- 2nd at nationals that year.  Lots of who's who on the sire line too!

Oh what a beautiful and correct little Emmie doeling we have here and of course she has managed to worm her way into my heart.  Her mother freshened with another very beautiful mammary that milks well- 6 days fresh and already 3.2 # in 12 hours.  Emmie's dam is milking over 7#'s already just over 1 month fresh from the picture perfect udder that is full of milk tissue, not meaty tissue.

Our kids are well socialized.  We don't just dump lambars to them,  we hug them and play with them.

Stay tuned for kiddings and photos/video of the kids starting sometime at or just after Valentine's day.  Prices for preordered kids (ordered before they are born) are on the doe page.  By God's grace we sell out every year, if that happens to you we do take deposits year round on the next year's kid crop.   Prices generally increase on kids after they are born as their dams obtain additional records and maturity, and in first fresheners a mammary to evaluate.  We have one of the very few alternative herds that show, are on milk test, and participate in linear appraisal,  giving us the data we need to keep trying to develop better LaManchas.
 
Kids not yet born can still be preordered.   Prices are fixed on preorders as long as the kid meets my quality standards.  We require a $100 nonrefundable (unless your kid isn't born or isn't acceptable to me) to hold your kid.    Kids purchased after birth must be paid for in full at time of purchase with plans to pick them up or ship them (if they are still small enough to airship) within 2 weeks or 1/2 of purchase price plus any costs incurred (ie vet fees, etc) is forfeited back to the breeder.  All shipping costs are the responsibility of the purchaser- kennels, health certificates if air or interstate, and shipping cost. 
 
Definition of terms:
 
For sale means they are for sale.   Until I have a payment commitment on the way they are for sale.  Be aware that at times you will be the only one considering a specific kid,  or I can have as many as three people asking about the same kid within the same day or two.
 
On hold means that payment is supposed to be on the way.  In state purchasers (Oregon) I allow four days to receive payment, out of state up to 7 days.  Then kids are available for sale again if payment has not arrived.  To be sure we get your payment on time we have paypal and credit card options.  You will be charged an additional 3% to use these options, but they are available to you.  For credit cards we require a SIGNED invoice from you by mail to follow up the purchase before you are allowed to pick up your kid.  All payments MUST clear our bank before goats are released for transport.
 
Sale Pending means we have received payment in full and have a tentative transport date.
 
Sold means they have left the farm to their new owner.  Please note that we DO NOT release registration papers to anyone but the owner.  If you are not picking up the kid then they will arrive by mail once we have word from you that you have safely received the kid.    All risk of ownership passes to purchaser at time of tender to transporter or at kid pickup by owner or agent.

If you missed your favorite breedings in 2014 it is not too early to place deposits for 2015.  Prices for kids are typically set in the fall, based on their dam and sire records.
