When we bring in a new buck, we try to find something that carries some of our own bloodlines. Any time that we have completely out crossed, the results have been very disappointing. With Morpheus, we are bringing Shalimar's lines back in through Esmarelda, Madelyn, and of course, Tigger. Madelyn's grandmother, Dancers-Ridge Chardonay, was Shalimar's full sister. Madelyn has made some very impressive accomplishments in her life, third place aged doe with third place udder at the 2008 nationals; second place aged doe with second place udder at the 2010 Nationals, (standing behind the Reserve National Champion), as a ten year old with ten freshenings she was the, second place aged doe with FIRST PLACE UDDER at the 2011 Nationals where she, once again, stood behind the Reserve National Champion. In addition to her show placing, she was also awarded The High Lifetime Milk Production Award as well as The High Lifetime Butterfat Award. We are so pleased with our Morpheus daughters, he is passing his mother's awesome mammary system on to his daughters! Sadly, we lost "MO" in the fall of 2016 but his wonderful line continues through his handsome son GOLDEN VINTAGE.

When this buck was born, I could not believe my eyes, because he was EXACTLY what I had hoped for with this breeding!! First of all, he is a dark golden color; he has a perfect Nubian head with ears that are unbelievably long, his hind leg set is perfect and his back is long and level with a wide flat rump----" The perfect example of Made to Order"! He is even more special to us because he is the son of our Herd Queen and will be her last kid because we have decided to retire her this year at the age of eleven. Of course his nickname is "PRINCE" since he is the son of the Queen!

All I can say about Deluxe is WOW!! I love everything about this buck. He is long, tall and extremely level, his shoulder assembly is tight and smoothly blended and he has some very impressive mammary systems in his pedigree.  I just love all of the Deluxe daughters. His daughters are freshening with Erin, Esmarelda, Belle udders!

Helios is such a gentleman and he is a real pleasure to work with. Just like his mother, Echo, he is snow white (well, as white as any buck in rut can be). Both sides of his pedigree are full of several generations of Excellent 90's and Excellent mammaries! Helios is definetely a favorite, with us!  We lost our handsome boy in the spring of 2016 but he lives on in our herd through his sons Zeus and Bodacious.

This handsome buck is solid white just like his sire HELIOS. He takes us back to our roots with FLORA FARM BELLMASTER, who Helen Snyder claims is where our best genetics come from. Our original herd sire LOTHLORIEN'S LEVI'S MAJESTIC was a BELLMASTER grandson and the sire of DANCERS-RIDGE MKL SHALIMAR who was out first homegrown permanent champion and excellent 90 buck!  We are hoping that BODACIOUS will follow in his great grandfather "SHALIMAR'S footsteps socking his daughter's udders on high and tight.

We are so excited about this young buck! He is a combination of the best of Starfire crossed with the best of Dancers-Ridge! Helen and my lines have been complimenting each other beautifully and seem to be locking into the best of both bloodlines. Adia is Helen's very strong "A" Doe Line and Southern Belle is my strongest Doe Line; both Doe Lines excel in mammary and breed character.

WILLS is such a handsome young buck! He is tall at the withers with impressive length of body for his age. We are very excited about this genetic combination and we are hoping for great progeny from this young man. I  could barely control my excitement when I watched his mother FORSYTHIA (a member of the STARFIRE HERD) take her place as the fourth place aged doe at the 2016 National Show in Harrisburg!

Well, I really didn't need another buck in my barn, at this time,  but because DELUXE is really beginning to show his to age and I don't know how much longer I will be able to use him; I decided that it was time to think about keeping a son out of him. This young man really did not impress me at first but as he grew he really started to blossom and my eyes would go right to him every time that I looked in the baby buck pen! I am so glad that I decided to keep him when the rest left for auction. He is a beautiful dark golden blonde (my favorite herd color) and even though you can't judge a book by it's cover, I think that I made the right decision. His body type reminds me of my foundation buck SHALIMAR. He is so structurally correct with beautiful rear leg set and a very masculine, yet dairy body and gorgeous head and ears. I have bred two does to him and am anxiously awaiting those kids!
