Why La Manchas?
La Manchas are the ONLY ADGA recognized breed of goat that is an AMERICAN breed! A medium sized goat, they hold their own, with does ranging from 120 to 150 pounds and bucks 180-200 pounds La Manchas have an open registry right now and any doe 87.5 % or higher, can be registered as an American La Mancha (provided both parents have paperwork that can be traced back with ADGA). The endearing physical feature, is their apparent lack of ears. Though this is NORMAL, (and no, they are not cropped), this throws some people off.
La Manchas milk well, often giving on average 1 to 1 1/2 gallons per day of creamy, tasty milk. Their docile temperaments lend them to being wonderful family milkers, for even children can handle them with ease.
Reserving a kid: A $100.00 deposit is required on all kids. This deposit is non-refundable, unless we cannot meet your request. All kids are bottled exclusively OR bottle/dam combo-raised so they grow FAST but also remain friendly. All kids are to be picked up by 4 weeks of age. Any kid remaining after this, will be charged a $5.00 a day boarding fee (unless prior arrangements have been made.
We will provide buck service for other goats provided they are in good health and free of any visible disease (lumps, hoof rot, etc) at time of breeding. Price is $50.00 per doe. We CAN board 1-2 does and boarding fee is an additional $25.00/week per doe, in addition to the service fee above.
We would like to introduce
our small herd to you:
Lexi is an amazing girl. We purchased her from Shady Lawn Dairy goats in KY and she has some fabulous genetics behind her. The best thing besides her ability to milk and her superior "build" is her fabulous personality. She is very affectionate and loves to give kisses. She has finished champions on both sides of her lines.
She has a super soft, buttery udder and milks VERY easily.
We love her topline, width and depth and just overall general appearance.
Will be bred to BRED TO Avenger for 2017.

ELLA is a sweet, sweet girl. She is unusual in that she is a "roan", yet a purebred La Mancha. She boasts amazing milk production on both sides as well as champion wins in ADGA shows. At only 4 weeks of age, Ella took Grand Champion La Mancha junior doe at an ADGA open show in the summer of 2014. Her dam, Qadosh Adamah is a finished champion as of 2017.

Shomera is a lovely doe who grew QUITE well, despite being a "June" kid. With the powerhouse of goat lineage behind her, we hope for GREAT things from her in the milk pail as well as in the ring. She is pictured above as a second freshening 2 year old. Below are kids from the past 2 years. (first 2 pics are the same goat, as a kid and as a yearling. Third pic is a doeling from 2017. Sire is Act for both years)
Shomera will be bred to Avenger for 2018 kids!
Zion is a yearling FF in 2017 and she has a beautiful udder: high, wide and tightly attached.
She is a third generation offspring on our farm and we are excited to see her mature into her second year and beyond.
She had twin buckling this year (2017) and will be bred to Avenger for 2018 kids.
Schnitte is a FF yearling giving over a gallon a day. She comes from heavy milking lines and she is pictured as an 8 month old above with all her fluffy winter woolies ;-)
We shall have to get a nicer picture of her all shaved down :) Trust me, she is much more feminine.
She has wonderful teat size, length and placement for handmilking and it is such a pleasure to milk her! We want to see improvement in udder attachment and we know Act will stamp that onto her daughter this year as Act is a wonderful buk for improving udders!!
She kidded in March 2017 with mixed twins. We are retaining the doeling, named Kirsche, below!
Schnitte will be bred to Avenger for 2018 kids: 1st doeling retained
Buckling: N/A (whethers only)
1- SIRE: South Fork SK Class Act (pictured as an 8 year old, and scored 93 EEEE)
