While we maintain separate herds, Geri Gray of Sweetbrier Ridge and I work closely together in the developing the potential of Mini Mancha dairy goats.  Since Geri does not have a website of her own, I have posted information regarding a few of her animals on this page.

Snowman

Glimmercroft Snowman (Second Generation)

DOB: February 7, 2005
MDGA XL00791
(Pictured March 6, 2005)

Snowman is a gorgeous, gopher-eared son of Sally and Valentino.  He is refined, with a long, level hip, strong topline, sharp shoulders, and tremendous width throughout.  To get an idea of the udder genetics this guy is carrying, have a look at his full sister, Shine, six weeks into her first freshening, and his daughter, Raia  You can click on his pictures to see larger versions, or click on the links in his pedigree to see his dam and sire.  Snowman is standing as the foundation herdsire for Mini Manchas at Sweetbrier Ridge.

Jack

Jolly Rogers Jumping Jack Flash (Second Generation) (68.75LM/31.25ND)

DOB: January 27, 2006
MDGA XL00877
(Pictured May, 2006)

Jack is a lovely, gopher-eared, 68.75% Lamancha buck that Geri brought up to Washington from Jolly Rogers in Arizona.  (Thank you Karen!!)  Jack provides us with an outcross that will maintain or improve the quality of our herds.  Jack is a long, sharp, dairy boy with a beautiful front end, great width and body capacity, a long, level hip (not shown in this picture!), a high, open escutcheon, and excellent feet and legs.  In addition, he carries outstanding genetics, going back to PGCH Piddlin Acres Blue Thunder +*S (AGS) on both dam and sire, and to Lamanchas from Lucky* Star's and Double T Ranch.  We are very pleased to have Jack here in Washington!

Celeste

Glimmercroft Celeste (First Generation)

DOB: March 26, 2004
MDGA XL00564
(Pictured June 9, 2004.  Yes, we REALLY need up-to-date pictures of this fabulous doe.)

Celeste is 75% Lamancha, the result of a line-breeding on my all-time favorite Lamancha Doe, GCH Windstar Notta Shy Anne 2*M (LA 90 VEEE, 3rd 99 nats, 2x top ten).  Celeste carries Jibarski Couriers Exclusive and Notta on both sides, and it shows in her very well-attached, beautifully shaped, and capacious udder.  This is truly a dairy doe, with the heavy production and the ability to maintain an extended lactation for which Lamanchas are renowned.  This doe is tall with a very strong topline and a loooong, flat hip.  Her babies reflect her elegant conformation.  Until 2009, she produced only bucks, but we now have her doelings on the ground, and we can't wait to see how they freshen!  Click on the links in her pedigree to see her dam and sire.

Kismet

Glimmercroft Kismet (Second Generation)

DOB: May 6, 2004
MDGA XL00565
(Pictured June 9, 2004.  Yes, we REALLY need up-to-date pictures!)

Kismet is beautiful doe with a strong topline, sharp shoulder, long, dairy neck, excellent width between the hocks, and a high, open escutcheon. She freshened with a very nice udder with good sized milkable teats. Kismet has produced very well over an extended lactation, and has consistently produced daughters that have done the same.
