Bucks Currently Owned:
White Rock Farm Dapper Dan
DOB 5/13/14; American Oberhasli; medium bay with correct black markings
Enchanted Hill Butterscotch
DOB 4/20/06; Purebred Nigerian Dwarf; Cou clair with white splashes and face markings
Butterscotch has excellent body capacity, feet and legs, and rump width. One of his buck kids was Jr. Champion Nigerian in 2 of the 3 rings at the Delmarva Buck Exposition, and came very close to being Reserve Grand Champion Nigerian Dwarf in one of them; the same kid won 1st 4 of the 5 times shown. An old favorite, Buttercotch is often our go-to buck with new goats because we know what we'll get.
Butterscotch's kids show improved smoothness throughout, depth of body, spring-of-rib, levelness over the topline, correctness in feet and legs, and heigth and width into the escutcheon.

J-Nels L Sir Lancelot
DOB 5/17/14; Purebred Nigerian Dwarf; Buckskin, white side splashes
When I started looking for a new buck, I was initially overwhelmed by all the options. Across the board at the time, the weakest area in my does was feet. Sure, you could always have higher, wider rear udders, closer teat placement, things of that nature, but any doe first or second in her class at Nationals won't be bad in those areas- but instead of just trying for "more," I want to get the fundamentals right first. Few breeders even discuss feet on their website because generally there are bigger fish to fry, so you've got to go with the LA data.
Long story short, I looked at EVERY doe that had been first or second in her class at ANY ADGA Nationals, looked at LA info (PTAFS, feet, medial, teat placement, category ratings, and final score), and ranked 1-10. Only 3 of the 33 does were given an 'E' in feet, and 2 of those were from the J-Nels herd. Nearly a year later, we brought this guy home. Could not be more excited for what he brings to the table.
Enchanted Hill Famous Amos
DOB 4/9/13; 3rd gen. Mini-LaMancha; Broken buckskin, gopher ears
Very excited to have this guy. One of the limiting factors in the development of Mini dairy goats on the East Coast has been getting goats of advanced generations; it's gotten easier now that we're not the only Mini-Mancha breeders over here, but outcrossing once you reach American has been next to impossible. Famous Amos is only distantly related to our goats, through the Dwarfs on his dam's side and through Butterscotch. He's our first buck of American status, with the potential to produce our first 4th generation kids. Expect him to be around for a long time.
White Rock Farm Bradley
DOB 4/24/13; 2nd gen. Mini-LaMancha; Tan w/gopher ears
As Megan was leaving and we had no daughters from that dam line, we decided to keep Bradley. Megan had the widest rear udder attachment in the herd, and the best feet & legs. That combined with Trouble should make this guy a capacity buck.
2013: 1X 1st, 1X GCH (official leg)
Pun Kids Farm Doomsday
1st gen. Mini-Oberhasli; Black, blue eyes
Very familiar Oberhasli lines, but enough difference otherwise to be somewhat of an outcross with Maddie and her daughters.
