Jorgina is a huge, powerful doe. She has lots of width and lots of bone, and is smoothly blended throughout. Jorgina stands on very strong feet, which are perfectly shaped and tight toed, with strong, short pasterns. She scored Excellent in feet at 4 years old. Jorgina has a pretty, well- attached udder. Jorgina has won several Best Udder of Breed awards. Her udder is firmly attached with a large area of attachment and a strong medial. Her udder is high in the rear, smooth in the fore, with a pleasing size and shape to the teats. Jorgina is our easiest doe to milk by hand. Jorgina is proving to be an excellent brood doe for us. Jorgina’s Doc daughters - Janey in our herd, and Jeannette in Jolene Self’s herd - have both scored 88 as 2 year old first fresheners. Janey has 2 championship legs (one in milk and one as a Best Junior Doe in Show) was 17 th place 2 year old at the 2004 National Show, and was the 2005 Reserve All American 2 Year Old. Jorgina’s dry yearling Doc daughter, Jeena, earned her dry leg with a Best Junior Doe In Show award, was 9 th place Senior Yearling at the 2004 National Show, and was the 2005 Reserve All American Dry Yearling. We are eager to see Jorgina’s kids by Sid.

Loreleah has been an exciting doe for us. She finished her permanent championship by the time she was 60 days fresh on her first lactation in the spring of 1997. In 1998, Loreleah earned Best of Breed with 29 Senior Saanen does competing. In 2000, Loreleah placed 8 th in the nation in the National Saanen Breeders Association’s Total Doe Competition. In 2001, and again in 2002, Loreleah appraised 91 as an aged doe. She has been on One Day Test several times in her lifetime, and her butterfat has always been well over 4%. Loreleah is an exceptional general appearance doe. She stands on straight front legs and perfectly angled rear legs. Her feet are tight toed with strong, short pasterns. Loreleah has an incredibly smooth front end, with tight shoulders and front legs perfectly positioned under her withers. She has lots of body width without sacrificing dairyness. Loreleah is still sound at 11 years old. On a crisp morning, you will still catch her running in the pasture with the yearlings. Loreleah continues her family’s tradition of excellence, while she passes her fine qualities through her offspring. GCH +*B Kickadee Hill Spin Doctor, Loreleah’s son by +*B Colquitt’s Wolfman Jack, appraised 3-03 90(E+E) 5-03 89(VVE). We have 3 Doc daughters in milk: GCH Glory (3 yrs), GCH Janey (3 yrs) GCH Jeena (2 yrs). Glory and Jeena both finished their championships as first freshening 2 year olds. Janey finished her first weekend out as a 3 year old. Lucy, Lorleleah’s daughter x McQuitty Farm Sweet Talkin Sid, was 16 th place Senior Yearling at the 2004 Nationals. Louise, Loreleah’s granddaughter through her daughter Lorraine , earned Best In Show this season as a dry yearling. The majority of the Loreleah offspring, both daughters and granddaughters, have butterfat levels well above breed average, with several over 4.0%. Loreleah has had a huge impact on our herd with her style and her high components. She has truly been an asset to our herd!

Tess has had a very exciting show career. She has placed well at the National Show each year that she attended. Starting with the 1996 National Show, Tess placed 4 th as a Milking Yearling. In 1997 she was 10 th place 2 Year Old. In 1999 she was 9 th place 4 Year Old. Then at 6 years old, Tess was the first place 5-6 year old and went on to be named the 2001 Reserve National Champion. Tess is maternal sister to the 1997 National Champion, GCH McQuitty Farm Tweedle Dee. Tess’s son, Willow Run Atlas Teaque, was purchased by Redwood Hill for $3600 in the 2002 Spotlight Sale. Tess has spent her entire life in a large commercial environment. You would expect that an animal in such a rigorous environment would have a shorter lifespan than the animal in the small, hobby herd. But to look at her, you would never guess she is 11 years old. Like Loreleah, Tess is a very sound 11 year old. She is a living testament that correct type gives the strength to function well into the later years. We were lucky to have the opportunity to add Tess to our herd.

Lorraine is a pretty bodied doe with depth and angularity. Her front end is extremely clean, with shoulders that blend smoothly into the neck and the withers, a prominent brisket, elbows tight to the body wall, and front legs perfectly positioned under her withers. Lorraine’s rear legs are near ideal, and she has nicely shaped feet with tight toes. Lorraine has a pretty udder that is well-balanced, with a strong medial and beautiful rear. She got off to a late start by kidding in May, so she was only out to one show, where she stood Reserve to Glory in one ring and was 4 th in the 2 nd ring. Lorraine had twin does by Wooly, who both have their dam’s prettiness. There are many generations of lovely does in this doe line. Lorraine is bred to Clyde for a linebreeding on Loreleah.

Doc is extremely powerful. He has lots of bone, and is very deep and very wide-bodied. Doc is very stylish, as well as extremely correct. He has appraised E or V in all structural categories under 4 different appraisers. Doc finished his Permanent Championship as a yearling, and has won Best Buck in Show many times during his lifetime. Not only is Doc awesome as an individual, his pedigree has generation after generation of excellence. His sire, Wolfman Jack, is one of the all time great sires. On the maternal side of the pedigree, Loreleah, Leah Anne, and Eta have all placed in the Top Ten of NSBA’s prestigious Total Doe Program, and Equus was 1994’s Premier Sire. All of these animals as well as Wolfman Jack’s dam Jennifer, appraised 91 as aged animals proving that this gene pool has such extreme correctness that they are still capable of appraising 91 in their later years. Not only are they still correct, but they are still productive. Doc’s dam Loreleah kidded this year at 11 years old with a beautiful single doe.

Doc is a very strong type buck, with a PTA for Type of +1.30. Doc passes his docstrong type to his offspring. We have three Doc daughters who are fresh, and all three are Permanent Champions. GCH Glory and SGCH Jeena both finished as 2 year old first fresheners, and SGCH Janey finished as a 3 year old. All three does have been All American or Reserve All American, and were 4 th Place Get of Sire at the 2006 National Show. Our Doc daughters are proving high in components - SGCH Janey’s lifetime 3.9%bft 2.9%pro; SGCH Jeena’s lifetime 3.5%bft 3.0%pro. Doc earned his SG designation this year for being in the Top 15% Sires for the Saanen breed. Doc is turning out to be the best buck we’ve ever owned!

Arelen2Arlene is a very fancy doe! She is very smoothly blended throughout, and has an exceptionally smooth front end. Arlene is upstanding and very level across the topline. She has an incredible rump that is very wide and board-level both from hips to pins and from thurl to thurl. Arlene stands on very correct feet and legs that are just as strong and pretty at 8 years old as they were when she was a young doe. Her udder has a huge area of attachment, lots of width in the rear udder, and an extremely extended fore. She has a strong medial, and nicely shaped teats. Arlene easily finished her Permanent Championship as a 3 year old and earned her SG as a 4 year old. We have retained many of Arlene’s offspring. Her 2005 Diesel daughter, CH Alice, finished her  Permanent Championship as a 2 year old first freshener, appraised 91(EEEE) as a 3 year old, and continues to earn Best of Breed as a 4 year old. Arlene’s 2006 Victor son, Arlo, appraised 90(VEE) as a 2 year old and has several daughters who have earned Best Junior Doe in Show this year. Arlene’s 2007 daughters from Gabe, Abigail and Angel, both appraised Ec(EcEcEc) as dry yearlings, and freshened with lovely udders this year. It seems that no matter which buck we choose for her, the offspring are always extraordinary. Arlene has proven her tremendous strength both as an individual and as a brood doe by passing her great elegance and style to her offspring. Arlene was an expensive purchase for us when Willow Run was going out of business and she was worth every penny.

Hank's greatest strength is in his general appearance. He appraised "V" or "E" in all structural categories. He was long and wide-bodied with a wide, long, level rump. Hank had nearly ideal shoulder assembly. During one appraisal session when I was quizzing the appraiser on shoulder assembly, the appraiser told me that "when you want to envision a perfect shoulder assembly, just go look at this buck". Hank had excellent feet and legs, with short pasterns. To top this all off, he was pretty in the face. Hank was never beaten in a breed class. He has earned 8XGCH, 8XBOB, 3XBBIS. At 9 years old, he still appraised 91. Even in his old age, he was still strong on his pasterns. We had Hank his entire life, and he has truly been an asset to us. His progeny carry on his legacy of beautiful front ends and excellence in general appearance. Hank passed away in March, 1999. Even though Hank is still with us through his progeny, we miss his gentle spirit and his smiling face.

Jeannie was a large, powerful doe, who was my all-time favorite doe. As is evidenced by her appraisal scores, she just continued to improve with age. Jeannie earned her dry leg as a yearling, easily finished her permanent championship her first weekend out as a 3 year old, and was GCH at 6 of the 8 shows she attended that year. Jeannie had an excellent front end with tight shoulders and perfectly straight fore legs. She stood on ideal feet, both tight toed and deep heeled, as well as having strong pasterns. Jeannie's rump was extremely wide, and level thurl to thurl. Jeannie had a very pretty face, and was very smoothly blended throughout. She was the kind of herd queen who ruled with the twitch of an ear. Jeannie was classy to the bone.
