Mini- Manchas

-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 prefer and try to breed as close to the 50/50 mark as possible, keeping the miniature truly miniature!  

~We SELECTIVELY breed for mini's from our show Lamancha and Nigerian Dwarf Lines, therefore only a few are bred yearly.

We are very excited about Bingo! Her dam is an excellent producer with a beautiful udder and Bingo sure seems like she will follow her wonderful mom. Bingo grew so well she is the youngest doe we have ever bred. She was bred at 7 months and kidded as a FF on her first birthday!

Lil' Princess is a very special doe who we love dearly. We had sold her dam, "Big Princess" as a kid, who we knew had great potential, in hopes to repeat the breeding the following year to retain a doeling. Tragically we lost Star to an awful accident and unable to ever get another doeling. After we lost our beloved doe, "Star" we were devastated. We are so very thankful for Straw Hat farm (who purchased Princess) to allow us to pick the buck for breeding and gifted Lil' Princess to us. We have great hopes for this lovely doe and are excited to see her freshen. When we brought her home, we were calling her "Lil Princess", but had plans to change the name. The name stuck as she is so much like her dam. Thankful for Lil' Princess and the amazing people in our life that knew how deep our loss had been. Lil' Princess' dam is pictured below in reference does.

Sass! This little doeling is full of sass! We knew from birth she would be a sassy little doe. We had hoped for a doe/buck from this pairing in hope to give us more genetic diversity in our Miniature Lamancha breeding program. Jane came through with buck/doe twins. We are very pleased with the way this sweet little doeling is maturing and are very excited to see her freshen. We will also be using her brother, "David" in our Mini Lamancha program. Sass's dam is an elegant doe that has grace and style as well as a very productive mammary. The sire for this breeding was to enhance that dairy character. An exquisite first generation 50/50 mini that is simply beautiful!

Strawberry is a doe that we were drawn to soon after birth. We love how solid and correct she is. She is also incredibly wide & growthy like her dam, a trait we like to see in Miniature Lamanchas. While she is erect eared we feel she has very correct conformation and will be an asset in our breeding program- ears don't make milk!

First time on a lead for picture day. 

 4 months

Monster may not seem like a very nice name, it really is a term of endearment. As a baby kid she was such an attention hog she was deemed "monster".  Developing nicely and calming down a bit she is a super enjoyable goat. Monster loves to cuddle up and sleep in the feed troughs. Silly girl.  Retained at this time as we see her develop. Monster has beautiful width between hock, width throughout, proper leg placement and is just a stunning lil 4 month old.

Growth (Weight/Height) & Lactation History-


~18months / 80-90 lbs 24".  First Freshener she produced 5.5# per day with a peak of  6#  10 month lactation, solid.

 ~2 1/2 years 90 lbs 24 1/2"  2nd Freshening -  7.5#  Milked 10 months

~3 1/2 years  90 lbs  24 1/2" 3rd freshening -  8# in lactation-

~5 years 110 lbs    4th freshening - on test TBD

Trouble is a favorite here on the farm! She is an incredibly hardy doe who thrives on forage and pasture over hay/feed. She requires little feed to maintain proper body condition but will still milk extremely well. As of now, Trouble is our most productive Miniature Lamancha and rivals some of the "big girls". A true Lamancha in Miniature, we are retaining a doeling from her 2018 kidding to continue in our breeding program and build up from her recorded grade status. Trouble is the reason for our love of Miniature Lamanchas, being our first Mini born on our farm we fell in love with this spunky doe soon after she was born.

 

Princess is SOLD but pictured for Reference and her doeling will be part of our herd in 2017!
