About Bette Davis:

this was a crushing loss to us in the winter of 2017.

1st place 4 year old at the 2015 National Show-she is really coming into her own as she matures.


Yet another "Excellent" Vivian daughter. She has many 1st place wins and a few RGCH's and we look forward to continuing to show this doe.

 

With a high test of 13.3#'s, an all E appraisal score as a yearling and an EC CH daughter-Charlize (owned by Babcock's) what more could you want? She is the doe most like her dam. And look at her solids-great milk.

She had the 4th beautiful doe kid from Bravo-- EC,EC, EC- EC overall as a kid and is now a lovely milker--Elke see below. Her 3 year old daughter, Debra, is also pictured below.


Bette Davis is bred to Mint*Leaf Elmsley BUCKS. She did not settle as a 5 year old. First DOE kid will be retained.

Her Buck from Bravo is ALpha s1 Casein A/A.

About Acclaim: ELITE DOE

We lost Acclaim after kidding this spring she was nice enough 2 have 2 bucks and a doe. and we were nice enough to go through with the pre-order for her doe kid.

Acclaim fell as a 5 year old doe just beofre giving birth to 36 pounds worth of quad kids. She broke one foot and ended her show career. We continued to breed her, but relieved her from most of her milking duties. She had few daughters and we only kept one-Epic who has already followed in her dams hoof prints SGCH, 92EEEE do who is Don's favorite.

Acclaim ffinished as a yearling in strong Northwest competition at 2 different shows. This is an accomplishment and gives you a clue to how nice she is.

She has continued to develop into a lovely mature doe. This doe takes the word balance to new levels and with this year's production she is reaching every goal we set for her.

About Paradigm:

This beautiful doe will be 13 years old in the spring and she stands on great feet and legs and yes MILKS as well--you can do both.

Paradigm is a long, tall doe who matured slowly, but boy has she been worth the wait. Far and away Judi's long time favorite- she finished as a 6 yr. old in 2007 at 2 shows earning all 3 legs that year. She was also the third place 5 & 6 year old at the 2007 national show (out of 25). Her quality is also reflected in her appraisal scores and her milk records.

 

Paradigm's life time so far is 3408 days/ 34,210 pounds.

 

Her attractive daughter in our herd, Zaray is fast becoming a favorite--milking and appraising as well as her dam.

 

She is bred to*B Rockin-CB RZA Aces Around BUCKS

About Yvonne II:

Reserve All-American 4 year old.

Yvonne II looks just like her dam, Vivian, except with an "E" head. She is one of 6 very nice milking Vivian daughters-all sisters to our herdsire-Xavier.

 

She is proving herself in the show ring placing 1st with several RGCH and 1 GCH to her credit. She is a reasonable milker, who shows well and appraises well.

 

Her mammary is one of the prettiest ones we have with perfect teat placement.

Spring of 2013 brought tragedy to our barn with the loss of a huge favorite-Yvonne II. This doe needed one more leg for her GCH and she was to be center for our 2013 show string. The birth of a huge single buck ended that--She just never recovered from that stressful birth.

a-Rresting has been retired from the milk string for the past 2 years- her choice not ours. So we don't know if she will settle this year.

About a-Rresting:

a-Rresting is a very nice looking 7 year old, who has many show wins to her credit. She has been the ALC Specialty GCH with 30 milkers in attendance. She has a very nice rear udder with especially nice teat placement and one of the longest flattest rumps in the herd. a-Rresting did not travel as well as we would have liked standing for all 1500 miles to Nationals in 2007, but was nevertheless 6th out of 25 in the 5 & 6 year old class. She was also part of our 2007 Best in Show Dairy Herd.

Prismea has long been retired from the milking string and is being kept as a brood doe--a job she does well!

About Prismea:

Prismea's first show of 2004 earned her one GCH leg, but her second 2 ring show earned her 2 GCH wins with 30 milkers shown in one ring and 27 shown in the other ring. We think these impressive wins justify Don's faith in this special doe. She, in addition to outstanding feet and legs, exhibits more overall area of udder attachment then almost any doe in our herd. She is the first "E" in general appearance in the Bewitched family to go along with their consistant E's in mammary..

About a-Llure:

a-Llure, as a 2 year old, achieved all our goals and continued to make her mark. She finished as a 2 year old with 2 BOB, 3 GCH and 5 RGCH. As a 3 year old in her one outing she was GCH and BOB. Her lactations and appraisal score just reinforce how pretty this doe is. If this isn't enough she has been All-American three times, as a yearling, a 2 year old and a 3 yr old.

About Wedgewood:

Wedge has been a favorite since she was born. We even gave her to our granddaughter when they were both weeks old. She has milked very well and was first place both as a yearling and two year old. We keep one doe kid for our granddaughter and Madison sells any sons and other daughters (her college fund).

Wedge aborted last year, but talk about will to milk we just started milking her after about 3 weeks from aborting. Her high test so far is 8.2--pretty amazing! She was even 2nd place 3 year old at sate fair.

This past year she didn't kid so we are trying one more time this year to freshen this special doe.

About Noteworthy:

Noteworthy was a kid that Judi picked out at ten minutes old, took pictures and e-mailed them to various friends to predict just how "Noteworthy" this kid was. She has lived up to all our expectations and then some. She was the District 7 Lamancha Specialty GCH and also had 1 BIS win as a 2 year old. She also has several BOB wins.

 

She has several nice daughters and one remains in our herd-Xhibit.

 

We lost Noteworthy the day her daughter Xhibit finished her GCH.

About Tweedledee:

Tweedledee is everything you would want in a doe, except her coloring. Her shows have earned her many blue ribbons and lots of praise. As a 5 year old she continues to be at the top of her class, but she does not have the general appearance you expect from today's Lamanchas. She has an amazing mammary with letter perfect teats, size, shape and placement. Her milk volume, great taste and great components make her a farm favorite.

Tweedle crossed the rainbow bridge spring of 2010-a very hard loss for the farm.

Patina went on to be GCH at "state fair" BOB, and YES the third of our does to be BEST IN SHOW at this fair. Patina died very unexpectedly and we still regret this lose to our breeding program.

About Narnia:

About Krystal:

In 2007 Krystal at age 10 was BEST OF BREED at state fair her only show this year! In 2005 Krystal freshened on Jan 7th with single doe kid. We decided at 8 years old she still looks just the same and so took her to one show where she was BEST IN SHOW in both rings and then decided maybe we should take her Nationals where she was the 2005 Reserve National Champion. Thank you to judges Acton, Bice and Klein! Krystal, in 2002, was 3 times BOB, and 1 Best in Show (165 milkers) and was the District 7 Specialty BOB for the 3rd year in a row. If that isn't enough she was also BEST IN SHOW at the prestigious Western Washington Fair an honor few Lamanchas have won. She was also the "Total Performer" for the 2005 National Show
Best of all she passes on her good traits. See her daughter Paradigm. We do not plan to breed her this year-2008

About Delphinium:

Delphinium is the 3rd doe who achieved all our goals. She has appraised 91, was a GCH and completed a lactation over 3,000 #'s. She also has several daughters and nieces that are finished or have GCH legs. Delphinium's most important trait is that she passes on her good qualities to her sons and daughters. Unfortunately, for us, we have sold them all. We will be keeping her 2003 doe kids. Sadly she died giving birth to 3 dead buck kids the winter of 2003 so there will be no kids for us. This was a very hard loss as there are no direct descendants in our herd. She does leave many lovely offspring in other herds, such as notable sons Joseph's Coat, Leland, L-Way, Mesquite and grandson Lewsia.

About Crazy Cradle:

Crazy was the 1995 National Champion. She was our second National Champion and one of only 3 does we took that year. She does not have any direct descendants in the herd but does have many nieces through Bewitched. Her premature death was a real blow to our herd at the time.

 

How did Crazy Cradle get such a strange name? Her mother was named Yo-Yo, and "The Crazy Cradle" is a difficult Yo-Yo trick, derived from "Rock the Baby in the Cradle".
