Miniature Lamancha Bucks
-A Note About Our Miniatures-
~We believe building the strongest base foundation is key in breeding a miniature dairy goat.
~Breeding those first generations as skillfully and carefully as one would with any other breeding program.
~A mini mancha is more than just throwing a dwarf over a standard.
~Breeding for quality, production, and confirmation.
~Our priority is NOT higher generation, ears, and/or noses.
~A correct erect eared mini is better than a mediocre elf/gopher eared mini.
~Our PRIORITY is a solid correct udder, high escutcheon, proper leg placement, teat placement, and the dairy characteristics.
~A solid miniature breeding program takes years to develop. In developing miniatures we believe in the whole package.
~There are times you go forward a generation and times you go back a generation to focus on a particular trait being improved upon. ~1st and 2nd generation minis often have teats placed to the outside rather then centered, this is common and is an area that takes great skill to improve. The blending of two VERY different types of dairy goats can be challenging.
~A well bred mini is easily capable of producing 6-8# per day higher % doe's may yield more.
~We SELECTIVELY breed for mini's from our show Lamancha and Nigerian Dwarf Lines, therefore only a few are bred yearly.

Main Man has 2 official legs
toward his V Championship.
Main man is a buck we have admired since the moment he was born. Having bred his parents in hopes of the pairing producing our next herdsire, we were over the moon when Main Man was born.
Now a yearling, Main man excels in general appearance. In feet and legs, we love his forward facing feet, strength of pasterns, tightness of toes, and depth of heel. In addition Main Man is showing incredible depth of body and width throughout for a yearling buck. Feet and legs are something we closely watch, especially with our herdsires seeing how it has the greatest amount of points on the MDGA scorecard. What use is a buck if he doesn't have a strong foundation? In temperament, Main Man is a very chill, easy goat buck. From the moment he was born he was just a joy! While he has had no official lead training, Main Man is always easy to handle on and off lead, even when around does in season!
Main Man's dam, Bingo, is a farm favorite. She is so angular and dairy showing us all the proper "Dairy wedges" along with beautiful mammary system. Main Man's littermate sister is Jolene. Jolene was 1st in her class at the 2019 Floyd, VA MDGA show. In the 2019 fall MDGA V-show Jolene was fist in her class, then went on to be Grand Champion & BEST JR DOE IN SHOW. We were lucky enough to have a doeling, Julia, sired by Main Man and we are so happy with what we are seeing! Julia was entered in the Spring and Fall 2020 MDGA V-show where she ended up going first place and RCH Champion twice (behind our other Jr does).

Bangle's Dam's 2F udder
Bangles Ewok, what can I say?! The family couldn't agree on a name so this fine buck gets two names! Bangles Ewok is the product of a breeding paired in hopes of producing our next herdsire. We were delighted when this buck was born! When Bangles Ewok was still a young kid disaster struck and he broke his leg! We were devastated, we did not know what the future would hold with this stunning buck. We did what we could and hoped for the best. To our delight, his leg healed very well. Despite only functioning on 3 legs for the longest time he had NO bowing or weakness in his other legs or pasterns! This is quite amazing given his age and the the rapid growth stage Bangles Ewok was going through, a true testament as to WHY feet and legs are so important! Had this buck been lacking even the slightest amount in the area of feet and legs he would not be standing today. When looking at this buck in person you can see the slightest difference where the broke occurred, has a bit of nerve damage in one of his toes but it doesn't affect his structure or function.
There are really so many things to love about this buck, it is hard to not get carried away when describing him. Everyone who sees this buck in person is an awe! Bangles Ewok shows us tremendous length over his topline, he has one of the longest rumps I've seen yet in this breed. The smooth transition from neck into withers and so forth is remarkable, truly a smoothly blended buck! Bangles Ewok is also showing us great depth of body for such a young buck. In temperament he is very easy to handle, even with does in season. We want to enjoy our bucks, so having a good temperament and personality is very important to us as well. Bangles checks all the boxes for us. As a yearling he has sired a doeling from Jolene. "Happy" has been retained. This yearling buck has so much potential and we are truly excited to have him part of our program.
It's not often you see a Miniature Lamancha that has ADGA National Grand Champions and Res. National Champions on both the Lamancha and Nigerian side of the pedigree! This buck has such an exciting pedigree, Nigerian Dwarf, Lamancha, and Miniature Lamancha breeders alike can really appreciate this spectacular pedigree. Too many focus on generation status or ear type and undervalue their F-1 elf eared Miniatures, we do not. We look at that animal individually and see what they have to offer. Clearly, this buck has many great things to contribute even to experienced breeding programs.
**** The breeding that produced Bangles Ewok has been repeated for 2021 kids, in hopes of a doeling. :)

Diesel's dam's udder

Diesel's sire's dam's udder 2F
Diesel and his twin sister were retained for our program. Diesel has such strength for such a young kid, correct feet and legs, well blended throughout. As a jr herdsire he will be heavily used in late fall 2020/early 2021. Really excited about this buckling!
As one may notice when reading through our Mini Lamancha buck page, we tend to "make" our own herdsires by very selective breeding. Diesel is no exception. Diesel is the offspring of our former herdsire Henry and his dam Rondi (Candlelight Secret Rendezvous). Diesel is a long and sharp buckling with very correct feet and legs. As a young buck Diesel is showing us proper smoothness of blending throughout and is long and level across the topline. Born May 2020 Diesel is already showing so much promise and we are using him very heavily this fall. He is a very sweet boy and has been very well behaved going through his first rut. Diesel's twin sister, Jenny is an incredible doeling that we knew would be staying on the farm the moment she stood for the first time. This doeling went on to be Grand Champion in the fall 2020 V-show! Both these kids are remarkable!
Diesel's dam, Rondi had such an exciting udder as a first freshener (as a 3YO!), she is very high and wide in the rear udder, with lovely lateral attachments, good teat placement, and a smoothly blended fore udder. We are hoping Diesel passes these same traits to his daughters! This buck shows us so much promise, his kids will be ones to watch come spring 2021!

Simone's yearling FF udder
Lil Guy is just precious! Always runs up to the fence for his kisses like his sire does! A true gentle soul! Although he is very related to most of our does he remains here until he finds his new herd. His elf ears seem to take priority over correctness which is truly a shame. Some of our most influential bucks have been elf eared and we have retained elf eared bucks over the years because they brought so much to our program.
Lil Guy is showing a tremendous high and wide escutcheon and good width between hocks. His dam, "Simone" is a very lovely yearling first freshener who freshened with a lovely little mammary system that shows us a lot of promise. Simone placed first in her class at the 2019 Foyd, VA MDGA Sanctioned live show as well as 1st, Grand Champion, & Best Jr doe in Show in the spring 2020 MDGA V-show.
