|Tilly has been with us since she was 6 days old and is our first Alaska goat and the founding member of the Ketchi-Kids herd. She has been
deposed as our herd queen, but still retains the position of matriarch. Tilly is a super producer whose lactations have typically peaked at over 13#
per day. When milked through for two years she was still producing over 6# per day at the end of the lactation. 2011 marked Tilly's first season on
milk test and she was able to continue her stellar production and easily earn her milk star.
|During the time we were waiting for the kids that we had reserved to be born
this little gal happened along on the Black Mesa Ranch in Arizona. We are
partial to Experimentals and Grades here at Ketchi-kids and she was just too
adorable not to add to our doe lineup, so Blondie made the trip north with a
couple of Nubian friends. Blondie kidded with a single buckling in March 2011,
and proceeded to milk well enough to easily earn her milk star as a first

|Black Mesa Lillith's Hollyhock (Holly)
PB Nubian - N1547177
|Once again, coming to us all the way from the fine herd of
Black Mesa Ranch in AZ. This girl has some FANTASTIC
bloodlines and production records behind her and we are
very excited to see what she can do for us here in our herd.
|Reuel Brisa's WC Belated (Late)
PB Nubian - N1547180
|This sweet little doe and her phenomenal bloodlines come to us from;
Reuel Dairy Goats in Washington.
She and her sister waited all the way to the end of the "10 day window" to
make their appearance. This is what earned her the name "Belated". ;0)
|Black Mesa Espeez's Penelope (Penny)
Purebred Nubian - N1547174
|Penelope is the littermate sister to our new junior herdsire, Alexander. We had reserved a doe or a buck from this particular
breeding and when Espeez decided to be cooperative and give us one of each it was just impossible to pick one over the other and
so we just bought them both! Hoping this beautiful little gal will follow in her mother's footsteps. Her dam, Espeez, has been a
DHIR Elite Doe for 4 years running so she will have to take LARGE steps in order to keep up. ;0)
|Ketchi-Kids Blizzard's Flurry (Flurry)
Purebred Nubian - PN1546184
|Flurry was a single out of a first freshener and one of only 3 does born here this spring (the only PB Nubian).
About 3am on the morning of her birth I heard a goat yell on the monitor. A quick look at the camera showed her dam,
Blizzard, with a front end hanging out. By the time we got to the barn there was a beautiful little doeling laying on the straw and
all four of the yearlings housed in that pen were standing on the other side of the stall starting at this terrifying thing that had just
come out of Blizzard. This little group included Blizzard! Oh how I wish that I would have had my camera with me!

|O.K. So Penny has more than a bit of an underbite, but how can you resist this face? (Or the production records on her paperwork?!)

|Ketchi-Kids Blizzard's Wintry Mix (Mix)
Purebred Nubian - PN1582770
|Mix is a full sister to our girl Flurry from last spring. We weren't intending to keep
a doe from this breeding, but she just looked too promising to pass up. We no
longer own her sire or dam so this is also the last time for this breeding, so figured
we might as well keep her. ;0)
|Ketchi-Kids Cooky's Misty Blue (Misty)
75% Nubian/25% Oberhasli - E1590283
|Misty is the first blue roan we have ever had born here and, in
fact, is the first blue roan that I have ever owned. She is also a
Corey baby and came accompanied by two sisters. It was
somewhat hard to decide which one to keep, but she has a little
more bone than her sisters and the color was the clincher. ;0)
|Ketchi-Kids Wookie's Deerling (Ling)
88% Nubian/12% Oberhasli - E1590284
|Wookie finally kidded for us in early February. She gave us
one of each. We were not planning on keeping any kids from
her, but the little doeling was quite pretty and is, after all,
Xander's first doe kid. She will be staying here at least until
we see how she freshens next spring.
|Ketchi-Kids Blondie's L Woods (Elle)
75% Nubian/25% Saanen - E1600031
|This girl's dam, Blondie, was my Snubian impulse buy back in
2010. She has since become our best producer and one of my
favorites, so keeping her first doeling was a no-brainer! It didn't
hurt that this was also the second doeling out of our junior
