Ransom was an extremely refined looking little buckling, also affectionate and charming, and has matured into a tall, handsome herd sire, who comes running as soon as he sees his people yelling his greetings. He also has the absolute longest ears I have ever seen on a Nubian. Ransom is A/A for the alpha s1 casein gene, which correlates to high cheese production. Since he is homozygous (meaning that he possesses an A allele from his mother and his father), all of his kids will have at least one copy of the A allele for the alpha s1 casein gene.
I leased Blissberry MW Renegade from Christy Harris at Providence Hill Farm for the 2015-2016 breeding season.
Renegade has a really sweet personality, is a perfect gentleman with the does, and is a people sort of a goat, coming up to get love and pets without being in the least pushy, and leading very easily.
Besides being a very handsome fellow, I'm also hoping that he passes on his excellent temperament to his offspring.
Renegade was successfully bred to Fancy and Reason and the 2016 kids were beautiful, with Renegade passing on his excellent temperament to his buck kids especially.
For the 2016-2017 season, I tried AI for the first time, and selected CH *B Hill's Acres GXY Polaris NS to breed to Reason, Fancy and Spice. Unfortunately, this was unsuccessful.
