We also got a 2nd leg on Angelina when she took Grand in the other ring. In the junior show we won dry legs on our two Oberhasli yearlings (Cara and Candace) and our Nubian Cleopatrica won Grand Champion in both rings and Best-in-Show in one ring, Candace won Best-in-Show in the Junior other ring.

New Oberhasli herd sire- We retained a buck kid (yet to be named out of Her Xcellency and Titus to be our new Junior herd sire. We expect him to be busy this Fall.
We already have three Oberhasli doe kids reserved for 2014 from previous buyers, so if interested in our Oberhasli, it's best to request them ASAP to ensure you get what you want.
Now that kidding our kidding season is over and we are poised to start showing I wanted to reflect on our season in 2012. Our Oberhasli, Her Xcellency, finished her championship in 3 shows and in her last show an Oberhasli specialty in Virginia she won grand Champion, Best of Breed, Best Udder and was part of several winning group classes. She went on to appraise EEEE with a final score of 92on her linear appraisal. The Oberhasli Goat Club honored her with awards - one for linear appraisal, one for type and one for performance.
Zaphirah, a grade Oberhasli was awarded for her linear appraisal of 91. She went on to win Grand Champion in both rings at the May 25 show in Leetown, WV.

Blue-Ridge Venus died this evening. When we left her out in the morning she was fine but that night she did not want to eat. I suspected ketosis and treated her for that. Later she began aborting and when we assisted she was hot inside (red flag). The kids apparently had died and turned toxic. She was dead before we could get a vet here.
