We select our does for milk production. They may also make good show prospects, but we do not show. We run a closed, clean tested herd.
Lots of dairy in these guys! Some herd names in their backgrounds are Little Tots, Velvet Acres, Old Farm, Prairie Wood, Piddlin Acres, Buffalo Clover, all the way back to Goodwood foundation does.
Too many goats, not enough time.
Kids are usually available July - August. We occassionally have some Dams in milk or older does that we need to part with to keep our numbers manageable.
Follow their growth on the puppy page.
Our dogs are beloved family members. Our Dam, Kya retired at six years old to a life of reclining with us. She still has tons of drive and will play catch endlessly. Kya is a great help around the farm teaching goats the milking routine to walk from the pasture to the milk stand. We have spent the last 18 months bonding, training, and loving on our new girl Sweet Tea. We raise our puppies as family members providing top-quality care, socialization, and love. Training & breeding methods we follow include Ian Dunbar, Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS), with the latest brand of these good breeding practices being Puppy Culture. We love the loyalty and intelligence of Australian Shepherds of all sizes.
Sweet Tea is a 13.5" red merle and weighs 20 lbs. She does not have the endless drive live Kya, but she loves to perform.
Jingle is a red-factored black tri and measures 10" and 12 lbs. He is super friendly and always ready to play with anyone.
Both have been fully genetically tested. They are clear for everything except Jingle is a carrier (N/M) for MDR1. We have used ivermectin for heartworm medication and he does not appear to have a sensitivity, but he may pass on this carrier gene.
Puppies should be in the toy size range and may be red tri, black tri, red merle, or blue merle colors.
We will be traveling cross-country to deliver our son to college in August, so if you reserve a puppy, you may luck out with free delivery if you are near our route. Check in with us and we can talk. We will begin taking reservations when puppies are 2 weeks old. Puppies will remain with their mom until they are 8 weeks old. They will have had tails and dewclaws done plus first vaccinations and deworming and will come with a puppy kit that includes a bag of food for a smooth transition into your home.
