     Starr was one of my most beloved does of all time, and I miss her dearly. She was a very dairy doe with nice, elastic skin, beautifully fine hair texture, a well-proportioned udder, level topline, and good prominence of brisket. She moved tall-fronted and smooth and had a steady personality. Rear udder photo taken in her third lactation.

     Emmy is an absolute sweetheart. The result of an AI breeding, she brings some old blood up close again. With a strong head, beautiful ears, good udder attachment, and nicely angled rear legs, she is also very good in feet and udder texture. Emmy has some of the deepest, kindest eyes I've ever seen on a Nubian, and she is a willing milker, too. She has issues with her forelegs and shoulders (they are too far forward, leading to difficulty walking and lameness), and I am working to improve that in her daughters as quickly as possible. Emmy herself is now retired.

     Missy is dam of Grand Design Espíritu Eco. She is a decent general-appearance doe with silky, fine hair; stretchy, thin skin; and one of the softest udders I have ever handled. She milks out quickly and easily, and had no complications kidding her first time with substantial twin bucklings, and the second time also with twins. She is very timid and tends to be flighty, but she is gentle.

     I loved this buck. Zorion was a sharp, angular buck linebred on Goldthwaite My Bonny Love. With fantastic height, breed character, and proportions, he stamped his kids with the same tall, sharp characteristics.

     Maxim, owned by Nora McCoy of Hope Eternal Nubians, is the sire of the beautiful young doelings SG Grand Design Strawberry Peep and Grand Design Molly Malone. He is one of our "rescues," as he was very run-down when we got him, and is still trying to get over his setbacks. His paternal granddam, SGCH J&R Spirit's DK Kovergirl 2*M, was 2009 ADGA National Reserve Senior Champion & Best Udder, while his maternal granddam, SGCH Jacobs Pride Butterscot Pudd'n 8*M, was 2010 ADGA National Show Reserve Grand Champion & Reserve Best Udder.

     Burn is a massive buck in all respects - height, length, and width. He has wonderful masculinity; excellent, elastic skin; appealing dairyness; good shape to the ears, and excellent breed character. He also posesses exceptional length and decent depth of body without losing strength of back, good spring of rib, and excellent, wide hooves. He improves breed character, ear, spring of rib, and body capacity on his offspring, and, as a bonus, he's thrown mostly paint kids. Dispositionally he ran far too hotblooded to be safe, so we will use him sparingly and carefully in the future with AI.
