Bucks Currently Owned:
White Rock Farm Dapper Dan
DOB 5/13/14; American Oberhasli; medium bay with correct black markings
Big, flashy buck. Unfortunately a botched disbudding job so he's thus far stayed out of the show ring, but he has a similar style to his dam. Largely being used on the grade does to improve length, levelness & power.
Progeny retained: Veronica, Meribeth, Valerie, Venus
White Rock Farm Xavier
DOB 5/2/16; American Oberhasli; medium bay with correct black markings
Hard to justify two bucks from the same doe in a small herd, but when this guy didn't sell as a kid, with those genetics in combination with his size and structural correctness, I had a hard time sending him off; should be able to figure out how to fit him in. Pictured at 3 months.
DOB 3/21/17; French Alpine; solid black
Having built my Oberhasli program by "grading up" using the experimental lines I started with, I've developed a fairly consistent "type." While grading up, it seemed like everything revolved around that glorious day when kids would finally hit American; as much as I like the result, the process showed me the value in bringing in genetics from other breeds, and that there is no shame in recorded grades as long as there is a plan and a purpose. I've admired Antigone since I first saw her as a two-year-old and think Archimedes will complement my Oberhasli genetics well especially by adding dairy strength & udder texture. His striking solid black color is a definite bonus in that kids should meet Oberhasli breed standards as long as their dams do. Pictured at 2.5 months old.
