It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ellie, who was lost during our ’08 kidding season.  Ellie’s passing was one that we’ll always remember, but never come to terms with.

Ellie was Tim’s favorite from the day she was born….she was not only a sweetheart, but had the most beautiful eyes we have ever seen on a goat. We were thrilled to have Ellie place 3rd in the Senior kid class at the 2004 National Show, but we were overjoyed to have her be named the 2005 AGS National Junior Champion!

Ellie was 3rd place Senior Kid at the ADGA National Show in 2004

Other than being totally spoiled, we can say that Ellie was a beautiful doe that excelled in every way, and that she was the most structurally correct doe ever in the herd.  Ellie became our first homebred doe to appraise EX91.  Being tall and long with lots of width throughout, and being extremely level across her topline, Ellie excelled in general appearance and dairy character.  Ellie finished her championship as a 3-year old, but never had the opportunity to get her star for milk production.  Her udder was beautiful…and we were hoping that with another freshening she would have the capacity she needed to be very competitive at the 2008 National Show.

Ellie’s ’06 daughter, Dreamer, remains in the herd.  Dreamer finished her championship in 2009,  and we now look forward to her taking over where her dam left off.  We are hoping the dreams we had for Ellie can be realized through Dreamer.  There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t think of Ellie.  Her spirit lives on in our herd, and it is with our greatest of hopes that as her legacy lives on, great accomplishments can be made in her memory.
