       In 2011, after two years of being involved in dairy goats we decided to add Saanens to the herd for their laid back disposition and willingness to milk. After months of trying to find a kid, we came across a family dispersing their small Saanen herd after their children lost interested and in the group was "Blue Moon", or her current barn name, Luna! 

       Over the years Luna developed into more than we could of ever predicted, since then she has had multiple best in show awards, high appraisal scores, earned her milking star and is one leg away from her permanent championship! Luna is an extremely powerful doe excelling in dairy strength and body capacity with an incredible willingness to milk. She also has a high, wide and well attached mammary system and produces over two gallons a day at her peak production with consistency of production throughout the year. A picture does speak for itself in this case! Her daughters have been just as successful as Luna even before becoming senior does, including one daughter winning Best Junior Doe in Show at the 2015 Eastern States Exposition! We love watching this doe develop year after year and watch her daughters developed into outstanding does themselves. We finally have a grandaughter of Luna who is just as beautiful and powerful even as a junior kid, she was also the 4th place junior kid at the 2016 National Show at just two months old. 

       Due to the breeder not registering their backyard herd for a few generations Luna had to be registered native on appearance. We are working on breeding up from her to reach the Saanen herd book. 

       Due to an injury Luna was not shown in 2016, we hope to see her back in the showring in 2017. We are happy to announce she did get her excellent permanent score this year! We will be repeating the breeding that produced her daughters Just This Once and Once Upon a Time, and were lucky enough to get twin does! Both are retained.
