Rumor, Pictured in late summer, 2013 – at 2-1/2 years old


Purebreed LaMancha Buck
Date of Birth: March, 2011
YSA:  0-03    VVV             V
LA:   1-04    VV+    VG85

 Rumor is a welcomed addition to the herd…and with his personality and disposition, Rumor has really earned a spot within our hearts.  Rumor is tall, long, and very level.

Rumor is not the buck Kristie originally had hoped for, but we’re glad things worked out as they did.  Unfortunately, Rumor’s dam died shortly after kidding, so we’ll never know her full potential.  But, based on her pedigree, we’re sure she would have matured into quite a nice doe!  The paternal side of Rumor’s pedigree needs no introduction…he goes back to Kastdemeur’s Orange Crush, who placed 3rd in her national show classes in 2004 & 2005.

We are excited to have Rumor join our herd…and this handsome young guy has already proved himself to be the piece of the LaMancha puzzle that we have been missing!  Rumor sired some lovely kids in 2012 & 2013…and we’re looking forward to more this spring!

Tempo QL Qutee Q

Rumor’s Dam…Little Orchard had this to say about Qutee: “She is a lovely doe structurally and also has a super personality. She is a strong, powerful doe with a very deep body and extremely sound feet and legs. She freshened with a very well attached udder. She has been shown at three shows and placed first twice and second at her last show. She was also Reserve Grand Champion once which, as a yearling milker, is quite a feat. We feel she has great promise.”



*B Kastdemur’s Smooth Sensation

Rumor’s Sire…Little Orchard’s comments about Sensation were: “Sensation is a very correct individual.  He is very long, tall, and level with excellent feet and legs.  He excels in dairy character being very angular and open throughout.”  Sensation has sired some very handsome, structurally correct kids.




GCH Kastdemur’s Orange Smoothie 5*M

Rumor’s paternal grand-dam… Smoothie was Reserve Udder LaMancha at the 2010 California State Fair. Smoothie was also 3rd place 2-year old at the 2009 National show. Smoothie’s udder, as described on the Kastdemur website, is “wide, smooth fore & rear, beautiful shape & area of attachment, wonderful teat placement.”



Rumor’s maternal grand-dam…TOTAL PERFORMER-2011 ADGA NATIONAL SHOW! 5th 4-place year old at 2009 national show, 16th place 5-year old at the 2011 national show.  This beautiful doe captured the top award at the 2011 national show…Quasi Q’s Total Performer status consists of the individual awards of  Highest 305 Milk, Highest 305 Butterfat, Highest Lifetime Milk, & Highest 305 Butterfat!!
