Miz Bell has proven to be a highly productive doe, producing five kids during her last kidding and producing enough milk to feed all and still put some in the pail. One of the bucklings from that kidding, Owlhaven DR Ocotillo *B did extremely well in linear appraisal, earning VVE 87 as a yearling and being singled out as one of the appraiser's two favorite bucks. Cora's granddaughter, Owlhaven MH Buddleia is showing exceptional promise in the show ring, going Reserve Grand Junior Doe in her first show.
Cora is closely related to such greats as CRF Castle Rock Harvest Moon +B *S and SGCH Castle Rock Annika 2*M 2*D AR 2538 (paternal siblings), SG Castle Rock Cleveland Sage +*B *S and SGCH Castle Rock Owl's Clover VEEE 90 (maternal siblings). Harvest Moon and Cleveland Sage have both proven themselves to be exceptional sires of show, milk, and brood-does.

Nope, didn't need another goat. And then along comes a doeling that is linebred to the great GCH Buttin'Heads Paperclip 2*M. Paperclip was the 2012 ADGA Senior Champion, National Grand Champion, and Best Udder. In 2014, at seven years, she received an LA score of 91 VEEE!
From the Buttin'Head site: "At the 2012 ADGA National Show, Paperclip was "1st/1st udder 5-6 year old, Senior Champion and National Grand Champion (149 judged - 89 senior does), Best Udder, member of 1st place Dairy Herd and 1st place Best 3 Senior Does; Total Performer Award (based on show placement, LA and DHIR)"

Rio's full sibling, SG Dill's BF Free 5*M was awarded an EEEE 92 linear appraisal score in 2015! In 2016 Free was awarded Elite Doe status for production in the 95th Percentile.
In 2017 Rio passed away in his sleep. He was a gentle buck who consistently improved udders and added dairy strength and body capacity. We'll miss you Big Kahuna!
