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.

Several weeks ago, we were contacted by the Colts Organization, specifically Trey Mock (Blue), to participate in a skit presenting a goat to Adam Vinatieri, the G.O.A.T.! Today it happened. If you saw it live, I was inside the gift box with Geisha. I have heard that the actual skit did not air on the national broadcast, but I found a picture on Indy Star.
Thank you so much to everyone who made this possible. It was truly impressive to see how many people it takes to pull the entertainment off at every game. We met some really nice people and Geisha had thousands of fans by the end of the day. In fact, it took 40 minutes for us to get to the parking lot because of all the fans who wanted pics with "Adam Vinatieri's goat." LOL
This is Blue and Adam Vinatieri w/ Twin Willows ME Geisha.

We are so very proud to announce that Twin Willows J Elaine has made the ELITE list for the second time in a row. The ELITE designation is given to animals within the breed who are in the top 5% in Milk Fat Protein Dollars (MFP$) Elaine made the list in the Summer 2018 list with 95th percentile and this week made the Fall 2018 list with 98th percentile! Not only that, but Elaine has been awarded Superior Genetics, which indicates that she is in the top 15% of Nigerian Dwarf does who have superior PTI (Production/Type Index) calculations. In a nutshell, it means that she is excelling in DHI and LA. We also have two more animals who have made Superior Genetics this round. We have also just dried up three does who have made the requirements for their milk stars. I feel so humbled and extremely proud that these animals are finally showing what they can do. It's been a long, long eight years and we are finally getting to where we want to be with our herd.
Without further ado, we introduce the newest BLING added to the following goats names:
SG Twin Willows J Elaine 2-00 +VVV 87 ELITE 5*M
Elaine is an ELITE and Superior Genetics doe who just finished her first lactation and starred in volume, fat and protein. Elaine has been nominated for the Sue Rucker Bronze JuJu award. Daughter of Joshua and Bellissima.
SG Twin Willows J Diva Hiyabina 3-05 VVVE 89 3*M
Diva is a Superior Genetics doe who just finished her second lactation and starred in volume, fat and protein. Diva has been nominated for the Sue Rucker Bronze JuJu award. Daughter of Apple and Joshua.
SG Sinai Thunder AG Joshua +*B *S
Joshua has been awarded Superior Genetics, posthumously. He also earned his PLUS milkstar from his daughters. He is the sire to Elaine and Diva. Joshua will be nominated for the ANDDA Sire Award for his daughters' (Elaine, Diva & Dido) achievements.
Twin Willows TIO Fiona 2*M
Fiona just finished her first lactation, where she starred in butterfat and protein. She is full sister to Apple.
