2015 ADGA Linear Appraisal
We had a our 2nd ADGA Linear Appraisal and wow do we always learn a lot, can't wait until next year's. We knew our top three girls were: Chili, Rose, and Bouquet. Our young buck, TwoCharlie, scored an 85 which is great at his age.

We're going to sell our other bucks, and I'm going to go buy Nickel next Sunday. Appraisals are a way to find out what strength's and weakness's we have in the mechanics of our goats, we're always trying to improve our herd and the breed.

BooneDocksWilcox goats, part of the farm tour

These are BooneDocksWilcox goats but owned by Shipley Farm and another family that lives near Shipley Farm. I love it when I sell goats and they get to live nearby.

Sunday at the barn

Love my red Nigerian goat herd. I'm posting these pic's below because I'm proud of the condition of their coats. I sit back, watch 'em, and am inspired like an artist. This time of year, their diet is primarily that of nutrient-dense browse.
