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, ear type

~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. A kid may be registered as a first generation but look closely, there may be 3, 4, or more generations behind that 1st gen. 

~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

Bingo is a powerful, yet very dairy, doe. Hardy, parasite resistant, keeps her condition easily.  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! We were even more impressed with her as a 2 year old and 2nd freshener. Her 3rd freshening  produced an incredible kid crop of  75/25 kids as she was bred to a Standard Lamancha. Kidding with ease all 3 freshenings, triplets each kidding. 4th freshening again triplets ( all 3 bucks) . All 3 went on to be herdsires.  This is a powerful dam line. Retained from Bingo are the following-

Monopoly (then sold as he was too related to use-buck), Strawberry (strawberry's doeling as well -grandaughter to Bingo- Shortcake), Jolene (Jolene's daughter, granddaughter to Bingo- Happy), and Main Main (buck and sire to many kids), also Grand daughter Julia.

She is an excellent forager, very hardy, such an easy keeper and a no fuss goat. Powerful doe with a beautiful mammary. We are so pleased with her FF udder and look forward to her 2nd freshening. She has not disappointed. Beautiful lateral attachments, and smooth foreudder excellent orifices and from the first day an easy milker.

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. Bred to kid as a yearling, to a std buck she kidded a beautiful 6.5 # single doeling with ease.  Daughter Shortcake has been retained.   2nd freshening she kidded triplet does! Well attached high and tight udder that is socked on! Beautiful Lateral attachments and milks easily. Teat size and orifices are perfect for hand milking and machine milking.

Rose is very special to us, her dam Wings & Caprines Princess was a favorite here so we are thankful to have a doe back from that line. She is super sweet, gets along well with all goats, very milk mannered.  Her dam can be found on our reference page and her Grand dam on both sides can be found in our Lamancha pages (current and reference).  Rose kidded buck/doe twins  April 2020. Doeling retained and buckling sold to a breeding program. Very pleased with her mammary. She is slightly uneven after getting hit by another goat several weeks after kidding. Lovely FF udder!

Very proud of our junior doe Simone going Best Jr doe In Show! Shown as a dry yearling in June 2020. Since then Simone kidded twin bucks, and is a yearling milker (July) 2020. 

6 weeks fresh  FF Udder

Simone's dam Charlot Bronte' was bred specifically in the hope of producing a buck. Our search for acceptable mini bucks to expand our program had not gone well and we felt with the incredible genetics between Charlot and Kiegh we could really make some lovely f-1 minis. When Charlotte gave us buck/doe twins it was an easy decision to retain Simone'. She is from slower to mature lines, with excellent flatness of bone, space between ribbing and lovely lovely feet and legs. We are excited to see her lovely escutcheon and width between hock. Very excited about this foundation doe. Simone's Sire, sire's dam, Dam, and dam's dam can be found on their respective pages (Nigerian Dwarf Bucks and Lamancha)  Simone kidded as a yearling FF and we are so pleased. 

We look forward to 2021 as a 2nd freshener and hope for great things for this sweet doe. She is super quiet and very loving yet never needy. Much like her dam Charlot. They tend to "disappear" into the herd.  Both dam/daughter are simply lovely!

Such a beautiful head!

 

The only doe out of Triplets we were just tickled to have this doeling! Beautiful gold eyes with a gorgeous correct head only adds to the overall correctness of this doe!  We borrowed back Charlie ( Kopy Kat MML Bold Legacy-  Lamancha) after we sold him to sire the litter. Charlie sure did put his stamp of that chocolate color added with the higher percentage of lamancha, we really see the characteristics we were hoping for. We are looking forward to her development and future breeding. She is a calm friendly doe that is sweet, yet uncharacteristically not demanding.  

Very excited about this young doeling's future.

 

Jolene kidded in June 2020 with a single doe! Her doeling was retained. Unfortunately we were not able to get any FF udder pics due to the 6 month  process of moving and building the barn. Many of our FF were missed due to busyness.  looking forward to her 2nd freshening in 2021!

Strawberry's daughter naturally would be named "Shortcake". Strawberry's Shortcake just seemed to fit!  Single to her yearling FF dam she sure stole our hearts!  Born 2 weeks after a large group of kids an almost 3 weeks before the  next group, we were her playmates! She is no stranger to the house! She is super playful and is always good for a jump in our lap!  She has such confidence with her "friends" and gets along beautifully with her goat pals.This lil gal is sure showing some nice qualities and it will be fun watching her grow.  We had hoped to get a pic of the 4 generations all together. This lil gal technically is a 1st gen, but has 3 generations behind her. Sadly we lost Zephyr (Great Grand dam) shortly before these pics were taken, and never got the chance at the amazing heritage she left. All her offspring are lovey, kissy, and clearly inherited her SMILE!  Zephyr- the Smiling Goat is missed. Shortcake will be bred for 2021 kids as a 2YO FF.  Very excited about this doe!

At just under 6 weeks of age Julia went Reserve Champion in Ring 2 and was 1st in her Jr class in Ring 1 in the Spring 2020 V-ShowFall 2020 V-show she was again RCH.  1st under ring 2 and 3rd in ring 1 placing behind 2 of our other goats. We have high hopes for this doeling!  Very excited to watch her grow and mature!  Due to her incredible capacity she will be bred for a yearling FF to kid in 2021. The breeding that produced Julia is being repeated for 2021.

Jenny's dam "Rondi" was FF 3YO!  Rondi is an exquisite doe! 

Both Rondi's doeling and buckling have been retained for our mini program. 

Jenny was a week old when we snapped these photos to enter her in he v-show. Even at a young age you can clearly see she is a correct doe and has a great future ahead of her. When Jenny was born she was "picked" by Josie (owner and breeder of our Nigerian Dwarf herd). I knew then she wasn't going anywhere and would be Josie's girl! At such a young age she showed such beautiful conformation. Jenny marches to her own beat. Always doing her own thing. She was born to be a show girl! She loves being taken out on lead, walking around to show her stuff and always looking for her human "mom". She has been bred to kid as a yearling for 2021 kids. We are so excited about this breeding!

Happy was born late in the year and was a single to her yearling dam. With no kids her age she stayed up at the house for about a month until she could go with the rest of the babies. Spoiled and a "follow" us around goat she was pretty independent. Entering the herd with far older baby goats she held her own and had the attitude of "you aren't going to boss me!" We love her spirited lil self!  She is always happy! Her smile reminds us of her Grand dam Zephyr, who we have always referred to as the smiling goat. Happy is joy!  Growthy as all our minis are in their first year she will be bred to kid mid 2021. She is a hardy eater with a real hardiness for such a young goat. Love everything about her!.

Earned Offical Unrestricted Leg

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.  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.  Her dam is our very loved Millie, a NOA doe. Millie has had both std lamanchas (registered as rec grade) and mini's (registered grade minis).  Very powerful doe yet stands at only 25 1/2" and at maturity 130#.  The does in this line are quite capable of extended lactation and therefore are not bred yearly.  Her width, capacity are incredible!

So very excited to see Dreamy grow into a young junior doe. Loving everything about this girl!

She was named Dreamy because I have always wanted a black and tan mini lamancha.  When she was born (1 of triplets)  I said MY DREAM GOAT!  She is  so very much what I'd hoped for!  Very powerful doeling with so much capacity and strength of front end she is a joy to look at let alone snuggle. 

Dreamy is my girl. Love her to the moon and back! 

This line is a heavy milk line that lends itself to extended lacation. Looking forward to see her freshen in 2021.
