in Production, Performance & Type, since 1973"
For 40+ years
now we have been breeding, raising, showing and milking DAIRY Goats. As the emphasis has always been on "DAIRY", we are proud
of our continued high production and longevity through many generations. We feel this continuity is achieved by maintaining
strong emphasis on correct body type, excellent mammaries, temperament and ease of milking. Although we have raised all the
breeds, Nubians are our first love and what we have primarily focused on. AND! because we Love NUBIANS, we expect them
to Look Like NUBIANS!

I have always bred the goats for what we want
in a Nubian. The strongest emphasis is on temperament, production, & ease of hand milking - along with the strong and
elegant conformation that will please me every time I walk out to the barnyard and that I know will last for years & years.
Of course Excellent udders are an important part of that conformation.
though I breed for what I want, I know I can’t keep them all - but neither am I anxious to get rid of them, and I rarely
take pre-orders for a specific animal. People who wish to own a Goldthwaite Nubian have learned to be patient, and to just
keep me appraised of their desires. I do keep lists of people interested in kids and milkers, and let them know as animals
become available. I am limited by age and location and must sell many of my beloved animals, but I like to wait until
I see what the total picture for the year is looking like. I also like to see my babies develop under my watchful eye and
care, and would rather keep them a few months than to “Insist” they be picked up by 3 to 5 weeks or sooner.
I like to see more of my total kid crop to pick with a mind for grouping than to just “keep the best and sell the rest!“
I believe all my animals are good, and often sell the “best” as I feel they will have a better chance at making
someone else happy. I am amazed at some of the animals I let go these past few years, but it is becoming more and more
important for me to really cut back as I am alone and now into my 70's. Many of these does sold are shown
on the updated "REFERENCE DOES 2 " page, I thank all the breeders and enthusiasts across the country to whom I entrusted
my babies as well as many of my long-time favorites.

We love to show whenever we can, particularly at State
Fairs, where we have been winning many Best in Show, Best Udder, as well as nearly every Premier Exhibitor & Breeder award
that we compete for. Our animals have not only been in the top placings and lineup at the ADGA National Shows
for the past several years, but our bloodlines have been directly behind several of the top winners.

When I can get away to distant shows, I often take the
animals with me that have been sold and meet buyers along the way. I hope to be able to make the trip to Pennsylvania
in 2016 for one more National Show. I often have buyers that drive a long way to visit the farm and
pick up goats and am happy to arrange transportation with them which helps with their expenses as well as making delivery
much more reasonable for the other buyers.
We have been on continuous DHIR production testing
since 1974 (except for 2013 when I had to let it go but I picked it up again in 2014), and the girls are still milking
well. We have had Linear Appraisal again on a yearly basis, and I am happy to make it to at
least three of my favorite state fairs - Wyoming State Fair, Colorado State Fair, and the Tri-State Fair in Amarillo~when
all the traveling and other life interruptions around here the production records reflect “reality”. We have had
several animals in the Top Ten over the years, but that has never been a specific goal. I shifted to Owner/Sampler testing in
2010 as it will now be accepted for the Advanced Registry and along with continued Linear Appraisal makes our animals
qualify for the Superior Genetics program, but not the top ten
As I no longer have the energy nor the work force to maintain a larger herd,
many of my top does now reside at the Curds & Whey Farmstead Dairy in NE California, where their milk is much appreciated,
they can still be on DHIR test and be Appraised yearly, and where I can still receive a portion of their kids each year.
This year several of my line-bred Goldthwaite does residing there have been purposely bred to animals with the 6M genetics
in their base. Not many of these will be offered for sale.
I believe that excercise is important
to all living creatures, and here we still have room for all to run and graze. We try to let our goats live as
"Naturally" as possible, letting many of the younger does dam raise, with daily handling, but also do a Pasturizing CAE Prevention
program, on tested negative colustrum and milk, on our early winter kids and whenever requested.

Our goats are
our best advertising, so we are presenting for the most part just their Photos and the statistics. Please feel
free to call or write if you would like more particulars or information on any of the animals or planned breedings for 2015.
We will begin kidding again in early January.
