Our percentage and purebred does are all descended from two incredible does - Wisdom & Mabel, both of whom are still alive at 14 and 12 years old.
*Doe of Excellence* Merritt's LH Wisdom, 50% doe, dob: 1/21/2000. Wisdom is a powerhouse of a doe who has never looked like a percentage. While never very feminine looking, she was a great producer for us with her last set of kids (triplets) born when she was 13yrs old. She is currently enjoying a well-earned retirement with us and hopes to celebrate her 15th birthday with banana peels, pears, and apples which are her favorite treats.
*Doe of Excellence* WHG Warriors Voodoo, 75% doe, dob: 6/10/2006. Voodoo's sire is *Sire of Merit* Warrior and her dam is our *Doe of Excellence Wisdom. Voodoo was a crowd favorite starting in the 0-3mo class and she collected a good share of the trophies in the show ring for quite a while. She is a prolific producer who has kidded quads several times and quints once. In December 2015 she kidded with a lovely single red doe kid
WHG Whiskey, 75% doe, dob: 1/10/11. Our only traditional doe, this girl looks very much like her mother Wisdom - definitely a keeper! Her sire is WHG Perfect Alibi (sired by ennobled Perfection).
WHG Achoo, 88% doe, dob: 3/12/10. Solid red daughter of VooDoo sired by WHG Perfect Alibi (by ennobled Perfection).
WHG Perfect Three-Spot, 88% doe, dob: 01/17/09, red with four spots. This grandaughter of Wisdom has thrown wildly spotted kids, including grand champion wethers. We kept her 2013 daughter by Dupont.
IF Stingers Bambi, 75% doe, dilute spotted, dob: 4/21/06. Bambi is the mother of Lacey and the daughter of Mabel. Her sire is *ennobled* Stinger. Bambi was described by one judge as "the biggest goat I've ever seen" - she has that size that Stinger put onto his daughters.
WHG Pixie, 75% dappled doe out of Crochet and sired by ennobled Perfection.
*Doe of Excellence* WHG Stingers Savvy, 75% doe (deceased). Savvy's sire is *ennobled* Stinger and her dam is our *Doe of Excellence Wisdom. Savvy was a massive powerful doe like her mother and did well in the show ring.
WHG Warriors Lady in Lace, 88% doe, dilute dappled, dob: 12/10/07. Lacey is the granddaughter of our foundation doe Mabel and is sweet and beautiful. She kids with no trouble and can feed triplets easily. This line is descended from Wynneshire's great nubians, and are very generous milkers. We have retained two of her doe kids for our herd, and will be posting photos of them soon.
WHG Stingers Crochet, 50% doe, dappled, sired by *ennobled* Stinger. Crochet isn't descended from Wisdom and Mabel, but she was the last Stinger daughter born here and has his mass and width on the height of her nubian dam's frame.
Wynneshire Smooth Mabel, 50% doe, dob: 5/14/02. Sired by Downen Smooth Blend and out of a nubian, Mabel has the nubian build and height and not a spot visible, but with the birth of Bambi, it became clear that she is a spotted doe with the spots hiding under the white. She's also a fabulous mother and has raised a number of fullblood kids along with her own kids. She won the butterfat contest at our county fair by nearly double the other does with third-party analysis of over 6% butterfat.
