This guy has quite the story.
In 2022 I sought out a few farms looking for a new bucklings. I needed to bring in some new genetics so I reached out to a friend of mine (Katy Vincent - Prairie Ridge Dairy Goats
) to ask for recommendations. Katy gave me several farms to look at and after researching, I landed on two. Tule Creek
and M's Sagebrush
. I reached out to both (not realizing that they were good friends and similar styles) and received communication from Tule Creek first.
Being the impulsive person I am (a GREAT trait in this scenario), I put down my deposit and started making arrangements. A few days later Marshall (M's Sagebrush
) reached out to me after seeing a post I had that was offering Here Be Goats KV Maycee
to go back to her original breeder. Kelley Hines (Here Be Goats
) was having a tough year and Marshall offered to gift me a buckling in return for me gifting Maycee to Kelley.
If you know me, you KNOW that I love a good story stitched with love so I gladly accepted. I started making arrangements with him for pick up and he was also offering ANOTHER local friend of mine (South Fork LaManchas
) as a birthday present one of his doelings. I reached out to Marilou and Richie of South Fork LaManchas to see if they wanted to split gas with me and the rest was history!
One weekend I made a trip to Winslow, Arizona to visit Marshall and Trudy and I loved my buckling so much I also asked if I could bring home a doe kids as well and the very next weekend I visited Hallam, NE and met Lee & Carey Bartram (who had no available doe kids when I asked them as well) to bring home the other amazing buckling. Both places I found new friends and great animals!
I am so fortunate to have these animals in my herd and to have gained two new friends!
