Rye was our very first buck, and I was terrified of buying bucks back then because I didn't want to get stuck with a dud that I couldn't sell later on! Well, we were blessed with a junior that bred my does on his first try, gave us beautiful doelings, has an amazing temperment, and is maturing into a very nice boy. Now I don't worry about being able to move him on in the future, but I also don't think I ever will! He is so easy to work with, has a nice front end assembly that is very difficult to find, and has a stellar pedigree to boot. Now, if only he won't grow anymore! He is just below the height limit, so I'm praying he's done growing. Our 2017 appraiser commented that Rye is a very nice 2 year old with strong feet and legs, and that we should be proud of how he is maturing. Our 2018 appraiser was also very complimentary of him, and even though he had grown an inch since the previous year, he still walked away with a score that makes me proud! I am hoping that our linear appraisal session will be earlier in the year in 2019, so I won't have bucks in rut. I expect his height to not be so borderline when he isn't puffing himself up for the ladies.
Rye was shown in three rings in 2017, making the champion lineup in one of those rings. We are very grateful for this boy!

Moose is a chocolate and white moonspotted buck with a lot of promise. I don't breed for moonspots, however here they are! While it puts nothing extra in the mammary system or the show ring, it can be pretty to look at! I expect Moose to continue to mature handsomely, moonspots or not.
I chose to add him to our herd because of the udders on both sides of his pedigree: lots of capacity with lovely texture.
He adds strength to our growing herd in the form of production, top lines, width and good feet. He has a fantastic temperment, which is another reason why he is with us. I strive to produce goats that are easy to milk and have lovely temperments, so he is a good fit here. His 2018 score is of course disappointing, however he was not presenting his best. He was just coming into rut and simply would not walk straight, throwing his front legs out like a doofus. So while his score went down, I am very happy with his daughters and son that were born here on our farm early 2018. It's not how they show, it's what they throw!

King is a small boy who is maturing slowly but comes from excellent milking lines ( he is eligible for a *S with AGS). We decided to add King because I had the privilege of milking his dam on more than one occasion. His dam has an amazing udder with heavy production, milking over 1200 lbs during her fourth lactation. I jumped on the opportunity to add him to our herd when one of my favorite breeders contacted me and said "I've got a nice buckling out of your favorite doe of mine!!" I never regretted that purchase once.

King is a friendly guy, small and flat boned, deep bodied and very wide between the hocks. He has strong feet and legs and a gorgeous rear leg set. He has a lovely topline and a very nice head as well. His 2017 daughters are slow to mature, like their sire, but I am happy to have a buck that may be a good downsizer for my herd. Our 2017 appraiser said that there is a lot of nice qualities about him, he just needs to finish growing out. Our 2018 appraiser was very complimentary of his overall structure, and was pleased to hear that he has passed on those traits to his daughters. His two freshened daughters, found on my First Fresheners page, have both freshened with beautiful, easy to milk udders with lovely texture! King did as I hoped he would: passed on his width, and that width was filled with capacious udders. His daughter, Julie, is rivaling my second AND sixth fresheners in terms of production! I am so very pleased with King's daughters, and am grateful I used him heavily during the 2018 breeding season.
King took reserve junior champion twice and then junior champion 1x in 2016, but did not show quite as well in 2017 because of his smaller stature. He placed consistently in the middle and up to the top of his classes, though.
King has one daughter that took Reserve Junior Champion in 2018.

Below, King's daughter, Julie, 4 days fresh. Will post updated pictures soon! I cannot say enough good things about how her udder is improving. She has qualified for her milk star and Advanced Registry in all three categories (overall production by volume, butterfat and protein) before she was 7 months fresh.

Jupiter is a beautiful buck with the softest, most luxurious gold and white coat! He is nice and uphill, has a great temperament, and beautiful rear legs. His pedigree speaks for him, and I plan to have kids sired by him for the 2019 kidding season.

I really didn't intend to have a buck herd consisting entirely of bucks from one breeder, but when you have a breeder that you like, then you have a breeder that you really like! My first buck , Rye, came from Lady Walkers Half Moon Farm in New Jersey. I had such a good experience not only with the breeder but also the buck, that when I learned that Rye's nephew, Jester, was available, I was happy to add him to my herd. 
Jester has a very high and wide escutcheon, as well as a deep body with lots of capacity. He has nice open ribbing, a very wide and level rump, and overall appears to be a very dairy buck that I plan to have appraised in 2020.
