SWNDGC put on their annual July Fling Show. It was the biggest show we have had this year and we really had fun. There were two shows - one ADGA/AGS sanctioned and one AGS only. Our herd did well this time around too so we were pleased.
El Cerro Wind in the Willows who came back to the ring after a 2 year
hiatus (we thought she couldn't show due to her horn scure) and won 1st and 2nd in the two shows and her and her daughter Dixie won 3rd in Dam and Daughter. Nizhoni's Joie de Vivre won 3rd and 1st/Reserve Grand Champion behind SunValley Starlight and Joie and daughter Twinkle lil Star won 4th in Dam and Daughter. CBF Ent'sTwinkle Lil Star won 2 - 2nds and her and Dixie took 1st for Get of Sire. CBF Ent's Whistling Dixie placed 5th in the first show but couldn't show the 2nd due to already receiving her Jr. Champion win in AGS. Shihara's Mace did not do as well as usual as we have a little too overconditioned - DARN! She will be bred soon and going to her new home this fall after breeding. El Cerro Wind in the Willows is for Sale now as my daughter is choosing to show dogs instead of goats (boohoo).

This is our dry yearling Nizhoni's BB Shihara's Mace, She is our yearling dry doe. My daughter and I have determined that she has allergies to goat hair, and grass hay. We need to cut back our herd to what I can manage by myself with minimal help from her. Unfortunately that means we will offer this little beauty up for sale. She has fanatastic bloodlines from Piddlin Acres and TX Twin Creeks both sides. Please email me for pedigree and to ask any questions about this little darlin. She is related on mom's side to our doe Nizhoni's Joie de Vivre who earned her milking star this year. We have no reason to believe this little gal will do as well or possibly better. We are asking $300 for Shihara who is bred for both show and milk. She has done well in the ring for us and we would love to see what she is capable of in the pail but reality dictates otherwise. IF she isn't sold by OCT she will will be in with a buck and will still be for sale for a bit higher price.
