FREDDY is a beautiful buck out of the first two goats in the US to earn their finished virtual championship titles and he went on to earn his V-Championship as well.  Freddy has long, wide ears that have continued to improve as he matures.  He also has a very sweet, friendly personality.  Freddy's dam was one of the nicest does in the herd who had one of the best udders I've ever seen on a MiniNubian.  She gave a TON of milk.  She easily earned her milk star in both milk and butterfat in 2009.  Freddy has a very wide escutcheon and tons of width between the hocks which he passes on for lots of room for udders in his daughters.  Check out his half sisters below.  His daughter, Liberty is a very petite doe that produces a lot of milk for her size.  Her udder has nice high, tight attachments (improved over her dam) and is VERY easy to milk (also improved over her dam).  We look forward to seeing more Freddy kids in 2016.

FREEDOM is a BEAUTIFUL buck from Sally McDonnel's herd in OH.  He has gorgeous conformation with very correct feet and legs, a looong body and very nice topline.  His dam, Freckle, is a great milker.  I don't have a good picture of her udder as it is uneven from nursing kids, but from my in person visit, I could see that besides that it was very nice with high attachments, nice teats and best of all, she produces great tasting milk.  Freckles is a beautiful doe with lots of body capacity and lovely coloring - red buckskin with tons of moonspots.  I really look forward to using Freedom in my herd.  Thank you Sally for letting this wonderful buck come home with us!  His son, Spice, has given us many gorgeous kids as well.  Freedom's daughter in our herd is Ashley.

Sunny is a lovely buck out of Star.  He has his sire's beautiful breed character and looooong body.  Sunny's dam is a beautiful doe with lovely conformation and a gorgeous udder.  Sunny is a very friendly little guy who loves people.  Sunny passes on his lovely breed character and length of bone readily to his kids.  We have only had one daughter freshen so far (Gloria), but her udder is well attached and VERY correct.

JASPER was a wonderful buck that added a lot to our herd.  Our first buck from Echo Hill's, this little guy had a great personality and conformation and passed it all onto his kids.  Jasper's dam, Hackman Farms Easter Sunrise , has had many show wins including 3X RsGCH, 1 X BUB and 1 X BUS. She has a level topline and her udder is very nice. Easter and her dam Diamond give lots of milk. Diamond has one of the best udders I have ever seen on a MiniNubian. Jasper's sire has awesome breed character and comes from a good milking line. Sadly, we lost Jasper at an early age - he was only 3 years old. He will live on in his gorgeous kids and grandkids. All of Jasper's kids have been beautiful! Their breed character is so much improved over their dams. They have all have very nice bodies with correct feet and legs. I am VERY pleased with how much Jasper has done. See his daughters on the doe pages.
