PLEASE READ everything I have written below. I have updated my sales procedures!!!!

$200 deposit per doe to hold until agreed upon pickup

I will not sell does alone. Sorry, but the does just do so much better going into their new herd & home when they are not alone. My priority and responsibility is first to the well being of my does and I want the best possible homes for them but I also feel that I am doing the best for my customers with this "policy". There have just been too many exceptions I've made in the past and it did not go as well (at all) as the new owner (or I) thought it would and my does have suffered needlessly. I really don't want to do that to any of my does... or my customers! Stressful for all involved!  :)

Also, long transports are stressful for adults (especially in milk), which adds even more to the equation. Don't skimp on transport. Thats not the place to save money. If you're using a transporter, be sure you have SOLID references and have a CLEAR agreement for the longest you should expect it to take for the does to get from here to you. Most transporters don't milk, or if they do, don't milk well, so its really best if you get/do direct transport (yourself or hire a private transporter that won't be making other stops and going off route). My does are not used to even being stalled. They are used to roaming large acreage daily. Being stuck in a tiny spot on a transport for days is very stressful on top of being ripped away from their herd/family and only home they've ever known. They usually WON'T eat on transport, so its real important to get them from A to B within a few days max, so if you are using a transporter, get a firm commitment as to time line.

Please make sure you can arrange transport for the agreed upon timeline prior to sending a deposit. If transport (or self pickup) can not be worked out within the agreed upon timeline, or you can't make the purchase work for any other reason, deposits are NON REFUNDABLE. So please make sure you can work everything out before placing deposits. :)

Better Wayz Kisses DOB - 01/07/2023

Kisses


Sire:  Better Wayz Is A Hunk *B

Dam's Dam: SG Better Wayz Carabear 2*M  EEEE92


Kisses is a beautiful doe, with an impressive body depth for such a young, immature doe. I really like the way this doe is built and I expect her to mature into a very nice doe. She didn't freshen with much milk supply for some reason. It just happens sometimes. And while she did build up some, she just wasn't picking up enough steam to make it worthwhile to milk her. I decided she could better use those calories/energy into body condition after kidding. Her udder looked to have a good start as far as shape, attachments and teat placement. Any other year and she'd definitely be staying for a second freshening... but downsizing means I can't put another year into a doe to see if she has the production to stay. Hunk's daughters last year were all over the place with production, some top of the pack, some middle, and some at the bottom, but interestingly, one that was at the very bottom (Dreamsicle) has freshened this year as a 2nd freshener and is really impressing me with her ability to fill really well between milkings. Isabelle (Hunk's dam) also was not a strong FF milker but also impressed me as a 2nd freshener, so hopefully Kisses will also be much stronger 2F.

This little doe freshened with SUCH a cute little udder with attachments to DIE for.... at two days fresh (1/21 as I'm writing this), I was taking a video of that pretty little udder to show it off when GASP, what do I see but that dang little bump on her teat. UGH!!!!! I look even closer hoping its an injury or something. Nope. Its not. Sigh. Its a spur. UGH. She is super friendly, very attractive and would make for a great inexpensive companion to any of the does here. She also could be added as a 3rd doe for just $100 to make a nice little herd dynamic! :) Being sold without papers. Violet could also go with 2 or more of the 2023 kids listed here for someone starting out, she would be the herd boss... to teach the younger kids how to be a proper goat. ha.

Java

Sire's Dam: Creeping Thyme Farm Whoa 2*M VEEE91
Dam's Sire: Kyeema Ridge Big Time +B
Dam's Dam: SG Better Wayz SwissMiss Carabear 3*M VEEE92

Putting Mocha Java on this list is KILLING me. I SO want to see this doe mature and develop. I REALLY think she is going to be a beautiful doe when she matures! She brings SO MUCH to the table. That said, some tough cuts are brutally tough, and this is one of them. I won't have hurt feelings if she doesn't sell. I'd REALLY like to see this girl go to a home where she won't just disapper into "the great abyss" of never being seen or heard from again. This doesn't mean she needs to be shown, or milk tested (although LA at some point would be nice!)... but I would REALLY love her to go to a home where people put in the effort to take good udder and body pics, trimmed and show filled at least once a year (really, its just ONE day in an entire year - its totally doable!!!). I would love to see this girl's potential being realized... which just never happens when people put in no effort to do those things at a minimum. She is SUPER luvable, extremely sweet and friendly, so she would certainly make a loving addition to your herd, I just really hope that who ever ends up getting her will do justice by this girl and not let her just **poof** disappear forever like so many other beautiful Better Wayz goats have. :( Her one flaw (and EVERY goat has flaws!) is that she is in at the hocks. This has never before been a reason for me to sell a goat. In fact, Old Mountain Farm Elton Jay, who I built my herd with, is in at the hock and a good portion of his kids too... this is a workable trait and something I found not difficult to correct in a subsequent breeding with a buck that has very correct back legs. I'm glad I never "threw out the whole goat" over a flaw... I see so many people doing that. This doe has some strengths that I see lacking in NDs, so she likely can bring something to many herds they need (FRONT ENDS!). The art of breeding is working with what you have and bringing out the best of both sire and dam in offspring by using bucks that are strong in the areas that the dam is weak in (and vice versa because EVERY goat has flaws, bucks too!!! and the breedings are 50/50!). This is a BEAUTIFUL doe IMO that is going to mature really nice. That said, she is definitely in that gawky/skinny stage right now. She isn't "too skinny". She is just very dairy in type, which is often confused... AND she is a 12 month old first freshener... she is very much lacking in maturity. She will fill out beautifully as she matures and I'm sure I'm going to be sad that she isn't with me once I see those beautiful pictures of her mature (because her new owners are going to take those pictures, right!?!?! Please!!!!!) She deserves it and you'll appreciate her more for it too! win, win for everyone. :) Java is being dried off so she can put more energy into filling that pretty little body out more. :)  Her dam is a finished champion and LA score of 91, with suspicion that she could possible pull a 92 if LA'ed again as a senior doe. Really nice genetics here... this girl just needs time to mature and fill out!

I need to wait until she freshens to price her and do her write up... but thought I'd put her here as a place holder as I really expect to sell her since I have to make deep cuts to reach my goal of downsizing. Unless she just ABSOLUTELY blows me away... even if she is *just* pretty nice, she will be on the list, so she is here as a placeholder for anyone that may be interested in looking back again after she freshens. :)

Pepper WAS pregnant after all, just hiding her tiny single buck kid very well. ha. She is 6 days fresh right now as of this write up. She's not producing a whole lot yet, hard to know if she will pick up steam this freshening. If no one speaks up for her quickly, I will probably dry her off to reduce my load. :) She has a really nice body. There is a lot to like about this girl. Both of her sisters are lovely (Molly and Duffy) so I have high hopes for this girl too. She is very sweet and friendly, just an all around nice little girl. :)

I really like Squeeze... always have, and its hurting to put her on this list. She is a very nice looking little doe with a ton of potential. Would love to see her freshen, but she didn't get bred this past fall. I didn't catch her in heat until after my deadline for breeding ended. As much as I like her, I have to ask myself do I want to put another year into her just to see her freshen, and any other year, that answer would be absolutely yes... but this year, with downsizing, sadly, the answer is "not when I need to make room for retained kids by a new sire (Swiss Mister)". I have enough Hunk daughters already and need to thin out those a bit more, so my poor sweet Squeeze in on "the list". She is extremely sweet and friendly. I'd really like to see Squeeze go with Sweety and/or Athena, but any of the yearlings on this page would also work. She is very bonded with Sweety though, as they were born later and part of the same nursery group, so like sisters.  Her and Sugar together, with the BOGO deal make them just $925 each!!! That is a fantastic deal for these two promising little girls!

Dam's Sire: SG Old Mountain Farm Elton Jay ++*B
Dam's Dam: Better Wayz Venus 7*M VVEV87 (as FF)

Athena is a sweet little doe who I very much wanted to see freshen since I retained her littermate brother (Mighty Titan) to breed to Swiss Miss this year. Unfortunately she was too small to breed by my breeding cut off date last year, so she is a dry yearling this year. She is finally to breeding size now. :) Her dam was my top scoring second freshener last year and among my top 2F milkers with a whopping 1229 lbs with her 305 day lactation. Hopefully Athena has been lucky enough to inherit her dam's production capabilities! As I am downsizing this year and needing to make super tough cuts to make room for retained kids by our new sire Swiss Mister, I decided I can part with her. She is super sweet and friendly and is very bonded with Sugar and Squeeze Me on this list so it would be nice to see her go with one or both of them. :)

Sugar is a super sweet little girl that really deserves to stay here. She is a beautiful little girl that is a linebreeding on Isabelle EEEE92. The only reason I have considered her for this list is because she is my one doe that is too related to have a good match to any of the bucks I have here without it being TOO much linebreeding and I'm not bringing in another buck this year like I had thought I may be. She has filled out quite a bit since her kid pic, so I took a video best I could... with her being so friendly, as soon as she sees me, she makes a v-line for me which makes getting decent video of her a challenge. Obviously the video isn't with her standing setup or even in the most flattering positions as she is acting awkward about me videoing her and wanting my attention, ha... But you can definitely see she has filled out really nice and is well on her way to becoming a pretty doe. She is in at the hocks some, which has never been a cull trait here. EJ was also and threw it some... I found it an easy to work with trait by breeding him to does that had very straight back legs and kids that I got that were in, bred them to a buck with nice straight back legs, and it just hasn't been a hard to work with trait here at all. She is a lovely little girl and I will be sad to see her go. I hope someone loves her with their whole heart like I do. :) She's a special little girl. :)  I'd really like to see Sweety to with Squeeze and/or Athena, but any of the yearlings on this page would also work. She is very bonded with Squeeze though, as they were born later and part of the same nursery group, so like sisters. :) Her and Squeeze together come out to just $925 each with the BOGO deal, a fantastic deal for these two promising little girls. :)

Molly, oh dear sweet Molly... I can not believe I am putting you on this list... and it hurts my heart SO MUCH to do it... but mama is getting old, and tired... and she needs to have less goats. :( I LOVE Molly... in so many ways. This little goat and I have a special bond. She is just that kind of special little goat. She was my first (and only) "nursery breeding". Last year as I watched this little doe grow up, I kept commenting on how beautifully deep bodied she was for a little doe kid! Month after month, I just got even more and more impressed with her. Kept waiting for her to come into heat because I wanted to get her bred. I think it was around Thanksgiving when it finally hit me and i was like NOOOOOOOOOOOO, couldn't be!!!! Pulled her in for an ultrasound and sure enough, she was pregnant! There was a day, very shortly before she graduated from the nursery, where two buck kids (in aprons) were also... and there was a day where I was out of the nursery for maybe an hour and within that time, one of the buck kid's apron slipped. When I came back, I noticed and fixed it, and noted no one was in heat, everyone was just laying down, calm nothing going on. ha. No worries. lol. Totally forgot about it. lol. Did end up DNA'ing kids just to confirm, but if you see her progeny sired by a Better Wayz buck you haven't heard of before, thats why. lol. He was a buck being sold. Anyhow, she kidded well before turning a year old, as a very small girl, but with her very impressive width, it was no issue for her! She popped those babies out like a pez dispenser lol. Like a pro. They came so fast, I was expecting so much more, ha... it was an extremely fast and completely uneventful kidding. I had planned on drying her off shortly after kidding, since she was so young and small, but she LOVED coming in the milk room and DANG, she was FILLING between milkings... this girl REALLY impressed me. For her size, she was really showing off her production capabilities. Truly impressive. She is a beautiful wide doe with way more of the "dairy strength" body type than the "dairy"/refined body type. Which actually makes her very useful here to cross with Bravehart who throws very refined type, creating a beautifully balanced kid. I had thought I would sell her daughter from this year, but as I kept looking at her, DANG, I just had to put her in the keeper pile. ha. Molly is a special asset to my breeding program for that body type, but if you are already heavy in that body type, without a buck throwing refinement to bring nice balance, she may not be a good fit for your program, but if you need width and dairy strength, she's your girl! I wouldn't suggest breeding her to a buck that throws that thicker/stockier build. You'd want to breed her to a buck that throws more refinement, for nice balance. I really love Molly, and would have no hurt feelings if she doesn't sell. She tied for 2nd place FF score here... which is saying a LOT considering she is a much smaller doe than any of the others. She isn't TINY anymore, but she is a shorter doe than is typical of my herd. The appraiser was very tough on the FFs last year, so getting a V in anything is really saying something. She got a V in Shoulder Assembly, front legs and rear legs. This girl is an asset and now that I've written all that up, I don't want to sell her. ha. But I HAVE to make cuts, no matter how tough they are. :(  She got 90th percentile on her first production evaluation (and totally deserved every bit of it), and already has a very attractive PTI. :)

Sahara has been on the "keep" list since she freshened. I was sure I was keeping this doe. No question in my mind. Then the other day I realized my math had been way off and I needed to make way more cuts to reach my goal of downsizing than I had originially figured (I had stupidly ommitted my retained doe kids in my figuring! DUH! Ugh!)... so had to go back through all the does and make some extremely hard decisions. This is going to be a NICE doe. Not a single doubt in my mind. I hope she goes somewhere she just doesn't disappear into the great abyss, never to be seen or heard from again. I hope her potential will be realized with a new owner that will take the time to trim her udder and do a nice show fill on her at least once a year and take a few pics. I promise its not THAT much work. Its ONE day out of an entire year... its not hard and will only help you! I really want her potential to be realized and seen. Would love to see her LA'ed some day. Performance home isn't required, but sure would be nice if her new owners will at least put in that effort once a year to take some nice udder pics (body pics would be a super bonus!!!) and share them with me. Its such a rare occurance. I will be so sad to never see or hear about this doe again. Her teats do appear somewhat out at this point, but this is completely normal at this stage for these types of udders. I have no doubt that as she matures into this freshening and gains capacity and elasticity that they will drop right into place, just like every single other Bravehart udder has. I have not had a single disappointing Bravehart udder and this one is certainly no exception to that!
