A & W is very correct, particularly on her feet and legs, with a mammary system that is well supported all the way around and milks down extremely well.  A&W has continued to improve as she has matured and still stands on the strongest feet and legs in the barn.  She has not disappointed us in the show ring this summer, consistently holding her own in very strong Midwestern Alpine competition. She was 2nd/2nd udder Age doe at the 2017 National Show and appraised EEEE 91 in late September.  We are excited to freshen her dry yearling daughter, Antonia this spring by Marran Rose’s Remembrance after seeing how our other Remembrance daughter, Siren, freshened. A&W has been bred to Manny this fall for a March Freshening.

Siri is our largest Alpine  by far. Her long, upstanding profile is complimented by an attractive, well attached mammary system.  We also love her sharp, clean front end.   Siri milking daughter, Siren, appraised 88 this fall and is an excellent milker with well attached mammary.  Siri, did not disappoint us with a 7th place finish in a very competitive 5-6 year old class. She also topped the age doe class at the 2017 MN State Fair.  Notably,  in 2015, Siri finished her Championship in strong fashion winning GCH Alpine at the 2015 Iowa State Fair and two weeks later was reserve champion to herdmate Xercise at the 2015 MN State Fair. Siri has been bred to Aizumi this fall, a breeding we hope to bring increased production, and improvements in teat size and rear udder height.

Arugula has one the most correct mammary systems we have ever bred.  She has a beautiful front end and a correct, level topline.  She is our last Aware daughter, and has definitely lived up to her genetic potential.  She was named All-American milking yearling in 2014.  She has won Best Udder in Show twice at the Minnesota State Fair as well as having won two udder placings at the National Show (1st-yearling, 3rd-3 yr old). She was 1st udder 4 yr old at the MN state Fair in 2017. We have been most pleased with how Arugula is performing as a brood doe, as she has been transmitting her well attached mammary, but also strong feet and legs, an area she needs improvement in. We were able to repeat her breeding to Pleasant Grove Zen Wingding (AI) in the fall of 2016, which produced our 1st place milking yearling at the 2016 National Show, Akebono, and got 2 doe kids and our jr. Herdsire Aizumi.  We once again will repeat her AI breeding to Wingding. Her back up natural breeding will be to Argento, a Wingding son.

Avila has continued to matured nicely this year and among tough midwest competition has stood in the front or top 3 three does in all clubs show of the 2017 season. Avila placed 4th in a competive 3 yr old class at the MN State Fair and 9th in over 30 does at the 2017 National Show.  She earned her third CH leg at the Bluff Country Show in September, She consistently has the highest butterfat of all milking does in our herd and has been milking 10-12 lbs consistently since March. Like, her dam,  she has taken some time to mature, but is continues to deepen out.  Avila has been bred to Aizumi for mid March kids, that will be line bred on both SGCH Kara Kahl Sauvignon Aware and 5 time National premier sire Pleasant Grove Super Saga.

Akebono has freshened with her mother’s beautiful mammary system, strength, width, and level topline.  She has improved feet and legs and shows lovely balance for a yearling. After an extremely rough kidding, she bounced back and delighted us with our first milking class win at a National show in the very competitive Alpine breed. Akebone freshened with triplets in February and finished her championship in her first of the season.  She placed 2nd/2nd udder at the National Show and has won Best Sr. Doe in Show twice this season. She and her dam are on track to milk near 3000 lbs this year.  We hope to repeat this cross this fall yet again as we would gladly take many more of her in our barn.  Akebono has been once again bred to Manny for late February kids.

We sold Aurora as a kid and after being so pleased with her 1/2 sister, Akebono, we decided to bring her back into the herd this year when she became available. Aurora is a first freshening two year old has freshened with a very well attached mammary system, strong feet legs and tremendous power, like her granddam Siri.  She has all of the right parts, but needs more capacity so we are eager to get another freshening on her.  She has been bred to Argento for late February kids.

Siren has freshened with a well attached mammary and is an excellent milker.  She is going to be a large doe, like her dam and we are excited to see her as a 2 year old. In her first show out, she was 3 times first and has consistenly placed in the top 3 through out the year. Siren has bred to Manny for March 1st kids.

Ahncore has freshened with a well attached mammary and has beautiful feet and legs, earning a E in rear leg set at appraisal. She is an immature though and needs grow up over the winter, but she is strong in general appearance and mammary, so we are looking forward to seeing her next year.  Ahncore has bred to Manny for March 3rd kids.

Ajuja possesses an extremely dairy profile and is very correct on her feet and legs.  She is also a star in the area of milk production, consistently outpacing many of our younger does in the milk bucket.  Ajuja’s milking yearling daughter by Nodaway Must B Fate, Kara-Kahl Fate Avila has freshened with a very promising mammary system. Ajuja has been bred to Manny this fall and though has been sold, we look forward to getting a doe kid back on this cross. We have also continued to use her son, Argento, a 3/4 brother to our yearling, Akebono, after loving the length, levelness and dairy strength of his first kids.

Xercise’s elegant frame is complimented by a fancy mammary, a definite throwback to Hoach’s Revolution, a buck well-known for his consistency with strong udders. In 2015, she was GCH and BOB Alpine at the very competitive Minnesota State Fair in 2015. Xercise was sold this spring to a wonderful home, but we have semen of her son, Xuberant by Marran Roses Remembrance and we have her daughter, Xiomara, who we are excited to see fresh in the spring.

We lost Arya unexpectedly when she became ill at home as we were away at the National show.  It was a huge loss, as we felt Arya was one of our most correct does, with a lovely mammary.  We did retain her son by Assassin, who is collected and has thrown excellent feet and legs and nicely attached mammary systems. We also have her last daughter, heavily lined bred on her, out of Art Thief.  Her last daughter, Arya’s Ahncore, is extremely correct, wide, and level as her dam was.

01-02 86 (VV+V)
Aryanna freshened a well attached mammary system, particularly wide rear udder and has an extremely correct set of feet of legs. . We were very pleased with her placing at the National Show.  In late September, Aryanna went off feed and 24 hours later we lost her to what was found to be an intestinal blockage and twisted small intestine.  The vet said there was nothing to do.  It was a heartbreaking loss of such a young doe with so much potential.  Though we have no offspring, we are still very happy to own her twin brother in our herd.
