GOLDSTONE is our buck from Echo Hill's.  He brings in some new lines as well as going back to a few that I have in my herd already.  He has GORGEOUS breed character with super LOOOONG, wide ears.  His dam is an excellent milker who easily earned her milk star as a first freshener.  Opal is very easy to milk as well.  His sire is an amazing buck who did great things in Dannette's herd.  He is wildly moonspotted and puts beautiful bodies and toplines on his kids.  Goldstone is a lovely blend of his two parents with his correct legs, long, deep body, lovely topline and stunning breed character.  I have been very pleased with the kids Gold has thrown.  He passes on his lovely conformation and greatly improves breed character. We have three of his daughters and a son in our herd - Marigold, Goldilocks, Maggie and Remmy.
