In the spring of 2010, my parents moved from Georgia to live with us on our farm in Texas. My mother had just completed a year of cancer treatment, and we wanted to be together full-time. During the previous fall, I had reserved two doe kids from Cindy Stewart of Buttercup Acres, promising my mom that she could have one of them and give it a name. I still remember how she told all the ladies in her Sunday School class that she was going to have her own goat when she got to Texas! She named her goat Molly May. 

Molly is a small goat with a big udder. She has been a problem-free milker through eight freshenings, and has produced some really nice kids along with all that milk. At eight years of age, Molly's udder attachment, texture, and productivity are still excellent. In the spring of 2013, the decision was made to sell off most of the herd. Molly was retained, as she had the best udder of all the does. When you're breeding dairy animals, the mammary system is of first importance. Molly's first kids out of Pruittvilles AM Aristaeus were born that year, two very large twins. The doe kid was Adagio Farm's Rosie Buttercup, a really nice doe (see her on Molly's page). That breeding combination produced well for the next four years. 2017 saw the advent of her first kids out of a breeding to Wingwood Farm TL Antimony. I was looking to improve stature and head with Wingwood genetics. I was not disappointed! 

December 2016 Update: Both Molly and her daughter, Buttercup, have just received their Superior Genetics awards from ADGA, as official confirmation of their merit in our breeding programs.

Adagio Farm’s Tim’s Maggie

Purebred Nubian Doe
DOB: 01/08/2017
G6S Normal by parentage

Every year I have called some little brown doe by the name of Maggie…and then sold her. Finally, here is a keeper-Maggie, a plain brown doe with a lot of udder and a lot of milk, which won her way to the final cut in 2018. Although she still has a lot of maturing to do, Maggie has shown all the makings of a really great dairy goat in her first freshening year. She is not a quiet goat, and she is a very slow eater. Other than that, I can’t find any fault in her.

Adagio Farm’s Tim’s Micaela

Purebred Nubian Doe
DOB: 01/08/2017
G6S Normal by parentage

"Little Micaela” began as the smallest of these triplet sisters. She is small no longer. Definitely the quietest and most timid of the three, she is also the easiest to lead and handle. Early in the kidding season I advertised this doe to sell as a milker. However, as the early weeks of her lactation went by and I saw how she was milking, I decided that she would have to be a keeper. Of these three does out of Molly and Tim, Micaela reminds me the most of Molly (except for not being a loud mouth - Maggie got that gene). Her udder is the truest replica of Molly’s that I’ve seen in eight years.

Adagio Farm’s Tim’s Marissa

Purebred Nubian Doe
DOB: 01/08/2017
G6S Normal by parentage

My favorite goat of all my years of breeding! As a kid, Marissa was the tamest of the mob, always nuzzling me, nibbling on my hair. This picture was taken just before her first freshening, showing how milky she was going to be. She has great stature, like her Wingwood sire. As a yearling, she kidded with a single doe kid who grew very fast on all that milk. Great conformation, tremendous mammary system, and wonderful disposition!
