Starfire Nubians

Purebred Nubian Senior Does 

A few years ago we were working on an export and gathering bucks. We picked up twins that had different sires. A buck got loose and DNA proved the sires of each kid. I joked for years that this was going to be my new breeding program. The more I  thought about how different those bucks were, the more it made sense to me. It's like using IVF without all the expense. A buck gives you kids from many different does. Does are a much slower process being stuck using one buck a year. Using more than one buck speeds up the diversity and pinpoints the better crosses. I've tried it several times and love the results so I've embraced this new Double Dipping breeding program! Many of the does will be bred to two or more sires. All kids will be DNA typed to determine sires.

Tilly was Grand Champion and Best Doe in Show at her first show as a kid.  She freshened with the beautiful udder that we would expect from our strong doe line, but has some texture problems in her mammary making her foreudder look a little off. She is one of the first does to catch your eye when you walk in the milker pen and has the personality to go with it. She's our "Who's that doe!" We didn't think she would see much of the show ring but we took her as an extra to a three ring show and she finished her championship!  Tilly placed 8th in the 5&6 year old class at the 2016 ADGA National Show with comments that she had one of the best mammaries in the class.  Tilly has one buck available sired by Manjelly.

Ananke is one of my favorites and reminds so much of our Winterberry foundation animals, especially Alibi, her great, great granddam.  Ananke freshened with a lovely udder with a very well attached, long smooth foreudder. She is a big powerful deep bodied doe with that beautiful dairy wedge I love to see. First two tests as a yearling were 8.6 & 9.0 pounds and she did not disappoint us as a 2 year old with her first test 11.1. Her next couple of lactations were with singles and didn't do as well. She finished her championship as a 2 year old, making her our first 5th generation SGCH Starfire doe.  She has been bred to *B Woest-Hoeve CB Calvin. Two bucks available.

Meli is a product of our double dipping. Her two sisters were sired by another buck and as different as night and day. Meli has a longer bone pattern and is sharper and more dairy than her sisters. She also happens to be the only doe kid from our purchase of Kryptonite, son to Pika the 3 time National Champion. She freshened 10 days early and did not come into as much milk as the other yearlings but she has a dandy udder! As excited as we were about her, she developed mastitis, has been treated by several products recommended by our vet and  dried off to heal. She freshened this year with quads and again dipped right back into mastitis. Not sure we will ever get her straightened out, but still trying.  Nothing available.

Nebula is another product of our double dipping. She and her sister Omarosa were sired by Bourbon and Meli by Kryptonite. Such different kids. Omarosa and Nebula were little tanks. They are wide and deep yet still have that dairy strength. At Nebula's first show as a kid she stood 2nd behind her half sister Phlavia in both rings and a large class of intermediate kids.  She freshened with a very competitive udder, maybe ever better than her big sister GCH Hedy.  At her debut as a yearling milker she was twice Reserve Grand Champion picking up her first milking leg. In 2020 with very limited shows she was four times Reserve Grand Champion and one time Grand Champion picking up her second leg. Nebula was bred AI to +*B Walnut Fork Bonzai Chili. Chili's dam was the 1988 Reserve National Champion and Chili sired 6 champion daughter including Angelia who was 20 times Best Doe in Show. Twin does will be retained. Nothing available.

Phlavia is our first and only daughter from Phae, blonde and beautiful like her dam and she knows it. She is a carbon copy of her dam, just so elegant, she takes your breath away. At her first show as a kid she was Reserve Champion in the first ring and Grand Champion in the second. She is a tall long and level doe with a beautiful  wide, level rump. So big as a yearling  that her udder was just not big enough for that huge frame. Her udder grew right into that huge frame as a two year old but with not many shows and a mean case of staph on her udder, she didn't get out in 2020. One buck available sired by Manjelly.

When we sent Karysma back to Dancers Ridge, we were to get a doe kid from her. When the doe kid was born, she let her nurse the kid. At the time we had our hands full with a big export so she got to stay with her dam. We picked her up when we got William and Kyros back a year later and wild as a jay bird. Being a dam raised kid she hated us but after her first freshening she thinks we're not all that bad but still convinced she is living in the lion's den. She is very much like her dam, from her color to her style, being long and tall with that will to milk. The longer she is here, the more she likes me and I her.  She is bred to Darius and due April 29th.

Purity came along with Kaptivate. Thiry felt pretty strong about her coming with us and Kaptivate needed a friend. I hate dry yearlings so both does were thrown in with Steel for the summer. Purity kidded in December with a beautiful, well attached udder. She cycled back in heat while Manjelly and Lark were in the pen cleaning up so she was rebred and kidded even better. She's a bit of a space cadet yet, a work in progress but has gone two times Grand Champion and once Reserve picking up two milking legs. If she finishes her championship, she will return to Dancer's Ridge.  She has two bucks available sired by Clark.

Phergie has her mother's elegance and then some. She is long and level with strong feet and legs. She freshened with a very well attached udder with perfect teat placement, reminding me very much of Angelia's udder as a yearling, maybe better.  It's been a long time since I've been this excited over a doe.  She is bred to Manjelly and due April 4th. Nothing available.
