Last Friday, I visited Coop Dreams to tape a Season 4 episode, check on the goats, castrate some bucks and bring home two surprises to the farm. Introducing...Virgil Earp and Morgan Earp. These two adorable bucks will be used to continue our breeding goals here at Twin Willows. I intend to have their babies on the ground next spring! To learn more about them, visit the buck page. To learn more about our involvement with the reality TV show, Coop Dreams, navigate to our Coop Dreams page on the sidebar.
We are so proud to announce the return of Twin Willows TIO Apple Blossom 2*M. She has been in Florida the past couple of years and we are so ecstatic to have her back home to live with her dam, Trixie, her sister, Annie, and her daughter, Diva.
Also coming soon...GCH J-Nels DH Li'l Red 2*M VEEV90 will be coming to live at Twin Willows! Red is the daughter of GCH Algedi Farm DJ Drops of Honey *B and SGCH/MCH J-Nels ER Dumplin 1*M EEEV90. She is exposed to CH J-Nels LY Zoolander VEE89 for Christmas babies!
Over the past several months, I have been working on developing a new website that will help others decide if they would like to raise goats, and if so, how to care for them once they welcome them home.
I am pleased to announce the launch of The Goat Chick. I hope that you find it interesting and helpful.
Proud to announce our newest star milker, Twin Willows S Cleopatra *M (Helmstead Minis FF Scorch X Jasper Pine Precious)
Advertising for a friend! Breezy Hill Farm D Brody is a ND buckling born 5/20/17. He is chamoise with white overlay. Has been disbudded already. His Dam is Twin Willows TIO D'arcy and Sire is Twin Willows J Delirium. Can be ADGA registered. $200. Will also sell as a wether for $100.
Twin Willows J Fabio (pending) is the grandson of AR Kaapio Acres HH Redemption 1*M *DAR VEEV89
(milked a record setting 8.1# on Test Day & completed her 305 with 1375#) and the grandson of Rosasharn SH Epic *B
(2011 ADGA Spotlight Sale Buck @ $8,700)
Fabio was born February 24, 2017 to Jasper Pine EP Majestic (Jessie) VVVV 87 (FF 2015) and *S Sinai Thunder AG Joshua *B. He is exhibiting great width between the hocks, a level topline and correctness. He is also blue eyed (heterozygous).
His dam easily has the best udder in the herd as a second freshener. The udder pic below is of her first freshened udder, and her current udder is STELLAR and I should have pics of her full udder in the next week.

Fairland Farm HH Chai Latte kidded with buck/doe twins out of *S Sinai Thunder AG Joshua *B on Feb 10th. The buck was DOA. The doe (blue) has been retained to the herd.
Twin Willows J Dido kidded with twin bucks out of Twin Willows S Catching Fire on Feb 13th. The firstborn had a rough start but he will make it. He's being bottle fed while Dido nurses the stronger one for a few more days. Both bucks will fill pending reservations.
