This is our little Joie de Vivre. After searching high and low for this little doe, we found her here in NM. We wanted certain bloodlines and a local breeder just happened to have them! Thank you Darlene of Nizhoni for this little doll. She comes out of MCH Fairytail Princess and a Peaceful Voyage son named Nizhoni Desert Wind. LOVE this doe's chocolate coloring and bloodlines!!!
We bred Joie to a blue-eyed buck named PrairieWood Dreamweaver (out of 2X Grand Champion Prairie Wood Pinnacle Blues and Gr. Ch Prairie Wood Calico) who resides at Twylit Star Farm in Los Lunas, NM. I am DREAMING of a Blue eyed Chocolate buck (but I'd take a doe too if that is what she gave us!)

This is our lovely Patience who came to us out of the generous heart of Katie from Double SunDog Ranch (www.doublesundogranch.com) in Arizona. She wanted to encourage one of our 4Hers (we have two in our family) with a wonderful show goat. We love Patience's color and bloodlines (She is out of Esperanza MB Smarty Jones and Esperanza WS C-Note) and are excited to show her as a milking doe this year. We believe she is pregnant by our current herdsire Buckshott (see Willow for more information) . She has a Junior Champion in all three registries (ADGA, NDGA, AGS)and hope to finish her as a MCH this year or next. Don't you LOVE her face? D.

This is our second Nigerian Dwarf, Prairie Wood Sweet Shalom, whom we bought for our son. She has the sweetest personality and is so cute with her brown legs and "football player grease" under her eyes. We bred Shalom to Lost Valley Orion this year and can't wait for those babies. We've seen several Orion babies and just love their sweet personalities and cute faces. If you want to see a picture of the handsome beau of Shalom's check him under "herdsires" on www.prairiewoodranch.com Shalom's mom and dad are there too: PrairieWood Calico(see "show wins") and MCH Twin Creeks Summer Solstice

This is our First Nigerian Dwarf, El Cerro Wind in the Willows. She is a two year old doe in this picture at the NM Quad Show (June, 2006) after winning RSGrand Champion and Best Udder in show after her first freshening. She freshened with two does but we lost one upon arrival and could not save her. We sold her so we could buy a doe who could take Willow's place in the show ring since Willow was not properly dehorned. We still love our Willow and all of her sweet milk. She will freshen this spring after being bred to PrairieWood RA Buckshott.
