Our LaMancha YOKO was recognized SG, so she joined ranks in our herd with Kaleigh(obs) Madonna (lam), Shannon (obs) and Tammy (lam)

We have only gone to one show this year: MDGA in June. But we finished Back2Black (affectionaly known as Time) and got a second leg on Blue-Ridge Exclusive.

Our grandkids did show at the July Ag Expo near Hagerstown and Aiden took Junior Best-in-show Junior with his Nubian Yearling Kalypso while Zephan took Senior Best-in-show with Hot Chocolate.

July Nationals

With the the encouragement from friends, we entered Ember and Back to Black Time at Nationals. Our Daughter and her family took Linda with them and they all had a mini vacation. We were discouraged when we learned that Ember had hurt her leg in the stall. But with the support of Katie and Rose Wolf, we were able to have her walking well for the show. However Embers appetite was off so she did not have much milk for the show. She still placed 10th  while the 1st and 2nd place in her class went Grand and Reserve. A special thank you goes to Katie and Rose for hauling and caring for our does. And also to Todd and Katie for showing for us.

We attended the Virginia State Dairy Goat Show held at the Howard County Fairgrounds. As always there were lots of Obies there. Our 2 year old black doe Back 2 Black was Grand and Best Of Breed in both rings. Both judges mentioned her for Best-in-Show but chose an older doe. Nevertheless she made an impressive showing.

Steve's LaMancha Felicia went Grand Champion and Best of Breed in both rings and was mentioned in the BIS at the end.

May 26, 2018

We took a few goats  to the double ring show at Leetown, WV with the MDGA and SDGA each sponsoring one ring each. Our four year old LaMancha Effie won Grand and Best of Breed in both rings. Our four year old Oberhasli doe Ember won Grand and best of Breedin both rings then SHE WON BEST SENIOR DOE IN SHOW IN THE MD RING.

We had our linear appraisal and were pleased with our scores. We got four does with final score of 91, three with 90 and a first freshener with an 89 (highest a first freshener can get),

May 27, 2017

This was our first show of the year. Our LaMancha Effie went Grand in one ring and Reserve in the other.

2016

This has been a hard year for us so far. Linda was hospitalized for over a week and then several ER visits after that. While she was in the hospital one of her best does CH Blue-Ridge Her Xcellency (LA 92) died and we also lost the kids she was carrying. Then we realized Royal Tiara and Yoshe were not pregnant therefore not eligible for Nationals.

We are still reducing our herd by trying to sell some of our milkers to serious breeders. We have listed some of these on our sales page.

Superior Genetics Award

We were pleased that four of our does have met all requirements for the Superior Genetics (SG) designation: Blue Ridge Kaleigh, Blue Ridge Madonna,  Blue Ridge Shannon and Blue Ridge Tammy.

Virginia State June 11th

A few weeks later we went to the VSDGA show and Y-not went Grand in the second ring. She should have finished but we missed getting her in the first ring. Out two year old Ober Blue-Ridge Exclusive went Grand in one ring and Reserve in the other. 

West Virginia May 28th

We attended the Memorial Day 3 ring show at Leetown, WV. We were pleased that our aged doe (8 years old) Blue-Ridge Y-Not Me took Grand in one ring and Reserve in the other two rings. This Grade had not been shown in years and we were excited she did so well.
