In other news, SG Twin Willows J Elaine 5*M again made the ELITE list with 98th percentile, and her sire, SG Sinai Thunder AG Joshua +B *S has make the ELITE Buck list for the first time, at 86th percentile. Sadly, we lost Joshua when he was only 3 years old, but his genetics still continue to have an impact here at Twin Willows Farm.
I am pleased to announced that we have another Superior Genetics doe this year.
Introducing SG Twin Willows TIO Apple Blossom 2*M VEVE 89
Apple missed it last year by .01 points!
Her sire, Jasper Pine TN Top It Off +B was also posthumously awarded SG status.
As I was going through my inventory of goats today, I noticed that Jasper Pine Precious has finally (and posthumously) been awarded her *M status earned thru her daughters. Upon further investigation, I also found that Jasper Pine TN Top It Off has been (also posthumously) awarded +B status earned thru his daughters. Accordingly, their 2017 son, Flurry, has inherited his *B status. I wanted to sell Flurry this year. My husband disagreed, so he will be staying. :D

I still have one senior doe, a senior bucks, some baby does and some wethers available for sale. Check out the FOR SALE page for details.
We are, once again, on baby watch! This will be the final round of kids for the year. Godiva and Grady are due today (7/2). Geranium is due tomorrow (7/3), and Glimmer is due next Saturday (7/13). All are first fresheners and are already displaying INCREDIBLE udders. I'm so excited to see how these ladies mature.
We added five new babies in June, four bucks and a doe from three FF mommas. The doe is available, as well as all four boys as pet wethers. Meet Hyperion, Heracles, Haulani, Harmony Jade & Houdini.
We have four FF ladies left to kid this year: Godiva & Grady (7/2) Geranium (7/3) Glimmer (7/13)
