Key Wins: 2nd place Junior Yearling at 2014 ADGA National Show in Louisville, KY. Best Senior Doe in Show at the 2019 All American Dairy Goat Show in Fort Worth, TX. Best Senior Doe in Show at the 2019 Southwestern Classic Dairy Goat Show in Fort Worth, TX.

Snow Angel was a Christmas gift for my youngest son in December 2013. He wanted a little goat to show, and a Nigerian seemed to be the ticket. Kellye Bussey placed her trust in us, and allowed Snow Angel to join our at that time Nubian only herd.

Snow Angel was Reserve Grand Champion Junior Nigerian Dwarf at the Red River Revival in May of 2013. At the 2014 ADGA National Show, she was 2nd place Junior Yearling. Then at the Fort Worth Stock Show in January 2015, she was again Reserve Grand Champion. Snow Angel had not been in a show ring in some time when she made her return at the 2019 Fort Worth Stock Show. Snow Angel had a c-section delivery of quints on the evening of December 26, 2018, and then she showed on January 20th and 21st of 2019. Words cannot describe the joy of watching her go not only Grand Champion Senior Nigerian but also Best Senior Doe in Show under both Tim Flickinger and Ed Jodlowski!

Even as a young kid, Snow Angel had tremendous width and depth of body with a wide U-shaped escutcheon arch which we knew would serve her well as a senior. Her back is level, and she is uphill into tight shoulders and a long lean neck. She has correct rear leg set, and is just a very dairy Nigerian.

Key Wins: Grand Champion Senior Nubian at the 2019 All American Youth Dairy Goat Show in Fort Worth, TX. Grand Champion Senior Nubian at the 2019 All American Dairy Goat Show in Fort Worth, TX.

Abby is a doe that Darla purchased as a baby. She was sold as a yearling just after kidding as our herd made a transition to Nigerians only. Then in late 2017, we made a decision to allow Jacob to have a small herd of Nubians under his own name, and we knew Abby had to come back to live with us.

Abby became a 2nd freshener on New Year's Eve 2018 with huge twin bucks. She returned to the show ring in January 2019 at the Fort Worth Stock Show. She did Jacob very proud by going Grand Champion Senior Nubian in BOTH the youth and open divisions of the All American Dairy Goat Show. Abby has a lovely 2nd freshening udder that is producing over 10 pounds per day and steadily increasing. Her kids will carry Jacob's herd name, Steel Valley. From the gangly yearling we saw, Abby has matured into an elegant yet tall, long, and wide-bodied doe. Even at six feet tall, Jacob will have his hands full with Abby!

Key Wins: BJDIS May 2016 at AGPA in Little Rock, AR.

Lakshimmi's sire, Algedi Farm MH Solaris *B, is an extremely dairy buck whose daughters are proving themselves. The Dragonfly herd did not attend the National Show in 2017, but they did send a Solaris daughter, Dragonfly SOL Halley's Comet, who was 14th place Senior Kid. She also sold for $950 as the silent auction Nigerian Dwarf. Dragonfly SOL Fantasia was shown at the 2016 ADGA National Show, and was 1st place Senior Yearling and Reserve Junior Champion. Dragonfly SOL Juno was the 6th place 4 year old milker at the same National Show. Lakshimmi herself was the BJDIS at the AGPA Quad Show held in Little Rock, AR in April 2016.

Algedi Farm Manuka Honey +*B is a very dairy buck also earning a VVE 88 LA score as a yearling. SGCH Rosasharn's TL Zenith 3*D/3*M earned an EEVE 90 on a Linear appraisal at 05-00. She has also produced several champion offspring including GCH Algedi Farm Lady Venus 4*M, GCH Algedi Farm Drops of Jupiter *B, GCH Algedi Farm RK Stella Luna 4*M, SGCH Algedi Farm H Purple Rain 4*M, and CH Algedi Farm D Capella.

Lakshimmi's dam, Dragonfly AV Shakti 2*D/1*M, is a doe that really caught my attention. She scored a VVVV 88 on linear appraisal as a 2nd freshener at 03-02 after being in milk for 7 months. She is a productive doe too! Shakti milked 893 pounds mostly on once per day milking on her 2nd lactation of 254 days.

TX Twincreeks PKM Avatar *S/*B is a son of Piddlin Acres PV Pokemon and MCH Gay-Mor's JJU Nonpareil 3*D. Two of his daughters had success at the 2016 ADGA National show as well. Dragonfly AV Hellcat was the 13th Senior Yearling, and Dragonfly AV Cirrus who had been in milk for 10 months was 16th place 5-6 year milker. Lakshimmi's maternal grand-dam SG Dragonfly IH Electra *D was linear appraised at 04-03 as VVEE 89.

Key Wins: BJDIS April 2017 at ETGRA in Corsicana, TX.

In 2014 we competed in the ADGA National Show where Maleficent's dam, TX Twincreeks MMD Snow Angel, placed 2nd as a Junior Yearling. The Junior Reserve National Champion that year was Wood Bridge Farm Teachers Pet. A year later, we became the owners of a Teachers Pet son, Wood Bridge Farm HandSomeDevil. In 2016 Snow Angel kidded with quads, and we had three beautiful doelings to choose from as our keeper doe. Maleficent is very special to us, and we can't wait to watch her mature!

Maleficent has been a judge favorite every time shown. She has lovely conformation, but she also has a "look at me" presence about how she carries herself. She has won her class every time shown save one ring, and she was picked as Reserve Grand Champion in a large show by Judge Elizabeth Henning as a 3 month old.

At 14 months, Maleficent competed in an ANDDA specialty ring at the ETGRA show in Corsicana, Texas. She won her class and went on the be the Reserve Grand Champion Junior. In the other ring, she won her class, went Grand Champion Junior and became Best Junior Doe in Show under judge Justin Bassett.

Maleficent's littermate sister, Darla Faye's HSD Snow Princess, resides in the Aubrey's Acres herd in Minnesota. Snow Princess is the dam to Aubrey's Acres Snow White who was the 14th place Intermediate Kid at the 2017 ADGA National Show. Snow White was also a 40th Anniversary Colorama Sale doe in 2017 selling for $2,300.

Nikole was shown as a junior for the first time at the 2017 Fort Worth Stock Show. She placed 2nd and 3rd in large classes with cuts. Both judges loved her. She was carrying just a touch of extra chunk that was likely the factor that kept her from placing higher. Nikole kidded as a yearling first freshener with QUADS in June in the Texas heat. Understandibly, it took her a bit to recover and become productive. She's grown really well, and I love how I can see the consistency of this breeding just stamped all over her. She's got two full older sisters, CH Castle Rock Nikita and SGCH Castle Rock Angelika 3*M, that are just gorgeous. CH Castle Rock Nikita was the 11th place Junior Yearling at the 2015 ADGA National Show.

Nikole's sire, SG Castle Rock Cleveland Sage +*B *S, was a 2015 Elite Sire, and produced the 2015 2nd place Senior Get-of-Sire at the National Show. His dam, SGCH ARMCH AGS CRF Castle Rock Alum Root 1*M 3*D, is a very dairy and productive doe with an exceptional mammary system scoring VEEE 91 on LA.

Nikole's dam, SGCH Castle Rock Annika 2*M 2*D, is another beautiful Castle Rock doe that is both productive and has a lovely mammary system. Nikole's grand-dam, GCH CRF Castle Rock Roxanne 1*M *D, was the 3rd place 7+ year old milker with the 2nd place udder at the 2015 ADGA National Show. Roxanne's 2015 LA score was a VEEE 91.

Ocean was born into the herd right after Darla started full-time graduate which really limited our ability to get to shows. She was shown for the first and only time at the 2018 Fort Worth Stock Show, and she was two times Reserve Grand Champion. One of those times was to herdmate Tiana. This is a doe that I LOVE! Does born from January 2017 to December 2018 have not received much exposure, but Ocean is one to watch.

Snowbird is a 5th generation finished champion, and is the dam to three does in our herd. Her daughter, TX Twincreeks MMD Snow Angel, was the 2nd place 2014 ADGA National Show Junior Yearling. We retained her 2016 doe, Darla Faye's HSD Chick-a-Dee, and her 2017 doeling, Darla Faye's PR Tweedle-dee. We're very excited to watch them mature. Snowbird is a more compact type Nigerian, but remains very dairy with flat, wide ribbing, and thin skin. She has great body capacity, angularity, and overall correctness. Snowbird's udder is capacious and well attached with nice udder arch and good teat size and placement. Her 2016 Linear Appraisal score at 06-04 was an exciting VEEE 90.
