Here are the milkers we have available:

Sold



Fair Skies WP ZSays Who?

Fair Skies WP ZSays Who? is not a show doe. She has a lovely silk purse udder with huge, easy to grasp teats, but the orificies are a bit tighter. Her body capacity is great, but she is too meaty to follow the desired breed characteristics and she is hocky. She is registered in ADGA (and maybe also AGS) and she is dry now. Bossy to other goats and a major air fern. She needs to keep her weight down. She also has a recurring hook on one of her back teeth that requires a quick vet visit to break and file. It has not affected her ability to eat and gain weight, though. Last year she either resorbed or had a false pregnancy. As she was a big improvement over her mother, so to is her daughter over her. Pick the right buck, like our Fair Skies CC Admiralty *S, and you'll have gorgeous kids with big milk capacity. I want her to go to a good milking home that understands this is not a show/brood doe. Even better if you do demonstrations for others as I used to at the Alaska State Fair to show people how Nigerians CAN and DO have big teats when selectively bred!

Sold



Fair Skies WP Zsa Zsa ++V+ 83 (02-03)

Zsa Zsa is a doe with nice udder texture making her another easy milker. Zsa Zsa has a senior reserve championship ADGA win. She was ADGA appraised ++V+ 83 (02-03) and she was coded as a stale udder (9+ months fresh as a first freshener!). She is dual registered in ADGA and AGS and she is dry now. She is the ABSOLUTE BEST mother, having VOLUNTEERED to adopt and raise no fewer than 3 orphans for me. Zsa Zsa's brother is also available as a pet.

Sold



Fair Skies XK A Flash of Gold VVVV (01-00) 88.3 VG (03-01)

Flash is another great doe. Flash was ADGA appraised as young stock VVVV (01-00). She is registered in ADGA and can be registered in AGS (if not already done). She is fat fat fat right now!

Flash and Strike are twins and although they are available separately it would be ideal to send them together since they have lived their whole lives together in my herd. They are not huge milkers but I have kept these two around for their body capacity, ease of milking, and their mother's super extended foreudder.

Flash is still letting her doe from last year nurse (ahem!) but she doesn't have much in that udder so I'm advertising her as neither in milk nor pregnant. Sweet, sweet, sweet! Flash is an in-your-pocket kind of doe. More hard choices.

You can see pictures of their dam as a junior and first freshener here: http://fairskiesalaska.com/referencedoes.htm#Yancey.

Sold



Fair Skies XK A Strike of Luck 86.4 VG (03-01)
polled

Strike is another great doe. She was ADGA appraised as young stock though I can't put my fingers on her score right now. She is registered in ADGA and can be registered in AGS (if not already done). She is fat fat fat right now!

Flash and Strike are twins and although they are available separately it would be ideal to send them together since they have lived their whole lives together in my herd. They are not huge milkers but I have kept these two around for their body capacity, ease of milking, and their mother's super extended foreudder.

Strike is dry (not in milk) and available for breeding. Strike takes a little more time to warm up to strangers than her sister, but she is still very sweet. More hard choices.

You can see pictures of their dam as a junior and first freshener here: http://fairskiesalaska.com/referencedoes.htm#Yancey.

Sold



Fair Skies AD BohemianRhapsody V+++ (00-02 as an itty bitty 2-month-old)


BohemianRhapsody is a sweet doe registered in ADGA and eligible for AGS registry (if not already done). "Boheme" was ADGA appraised as young stock V+++ (00-02 as an itty bitty 2-month-old). Boheme is the daughter of a CH sire and grand daughter of an ARMCH and an ARMCH/GCH in AGS. Her dam is the first doe I ever imported to Alaska from another state and her grand dam is one of my all-time favorites - Elizabet Ney - for that high, wide udder. Boheme has that soft udder texture but not a lot of capacity in her first freshening. I suspect she takes after her dam, though, and is slower to mature. Another plus: she is very small and economical.

She is currently dry (not in milk). I do not believe she is pregnant, but I would want to confirm this before selling her. She was exposed to a buck and could possibly have a due date into late October but she is showing no signs of pregnancy at this late stage. This doe is in our pocket and sweet as pie. She is friendly and loves people (like almost all that have been in my herd this long) but I have to make hard choices for my move!

Sold



Fair Skies YZ Amoré V+VV (01-03)


Amoré is registered in ADGA and can be registered in AGS (if not already done). She was ADGA appraised as young stock V+VV (01-03).

This doe is very small but can really pull her weight. In my opinion, her milk records don't reflect her true volume. I suspect she was holding back her milk for her kids because last year this tiny doe effortlessly birthed quads (and until a few weeks ago she was still feeding three of them--ahem!) and there is no way she could have fed thriving multiples while producing less than 2# of milk daily! She has a soft, easy-milking udder with large teats and lovely orifices.

She may still have a little milk because her 3 kids from last year are still with her, but I'm fairly sure she has weaned them now (finally) so I am advertising her as dry (not in milk) and available for breeding now. Another very sweet doe who loves people. I hate to sell her because she is such a sweetheart, easy birther, easy milker, and wonderful mother, but I have to make hard choices for my move! Her daughter, CanICallYouMine?, is also available.

Sold



Yipsy VVVV (Very Good) (01-01)
polled

Yipsy is a polled doe with nice udder texture and ample teats. Open orifices make this girl an easy milker. Yipsy has 3 junior championship wins and 1 junior reserve championship wins. She was ADGA appraised as young stock and scored VVVV (Very Good) (01-01). She is dual registered in ADGA and AGS and she is dry and available for breeding now. Her daughter, Cleopatra, is also available for sale.

Sold



Edgefield Bleu Bayou
blue eyes

Bleu is a blue-eyed milker for sale. She has excellent udder texture and ample teats with open orifices. Bleu is registered in ADGA and eligible for AGS registry (if not already done). I bought her as a favor to a friend and I am reselling her. She is another with soft udder texture and easy-to-milk teats. Also a very easy birther who spit out a great bit single all on her own last year. She is dry (not in milk) and available for breeding now. She started out as a skittish doe but she has really come around and now is in your pocket almost as much as the rest of my herd. Her sister's doe, Caramello, is also available as a pet.


Sold



Fair Skies XK Yantarni V+VV (Very Good) (01-01)

Yantarni is dual registered in ADGA and AGS. She has a junior championship win and a Best Jr. Doe in Show ADGA win. She was ADGA appraised as young stock and scored V+VV (Very Good) (01-01). Yantarni is an easy keeper and is currently quite overweight since she's not working. She is such an easy milker with nice udder texture, ample teats, and open orifices. She used to be one that I would show off to people that erroneously claimed Nigerians are hard to milk. She is not a huge producer, but she did earn her dairy stars and her high milk on test was 2.0#. I always thought she could do more but she's only ever raised singles. She is dry now.

She is currently dry (not in milk). I do not believe she is pregnant, but I would want to confirm this before selling her. She was exposed to a buck and could possibly have a due date into late October but she is showing no signs of pregnancy at this stage. This doe is another friendly stinker that wants attention all the time. Another hard choice for me to sell because she is such a sweetheart and easy milker. Her littermate brother Yu'Pik is available as the first breeding buck we are offering with our herd name.

Check back soon for more listings and also see our kiddings schedule or contact us for more information. These will not be our best quality does, but we will sell with full disclosure regarding any traits we personally find less than desirable. This is a great way to get a few family milkers or pets.

Contact us for more information.  Unless otherwise noted, all our goats are well-socialized and most are extremely friendly.

Sold with kid

Fair Skies BL Crescendo

Cresendo's PET doeling
just born with wattles

Crescendo is ADGA registered and is eligible for AGS registration (if not already done). Crescendo's maternal grand dam and grandsire were also both ARMCH SGCH goats and her paternal grandsire is a CH in ADGA. Although her dam, maternal grand dam, and maternal grandsire are all quite tall, this doe is not yet full grown. We are hoping she will take after her sire and end up considerably smaller (as we have been working to achieve).

Crescendo just kidded with a single doeling (pictured to the left). They are available as a pair and the doeling will NOT have papers. The doeling is a PET only and NOT for breeding. Crescendo freshened a large, soft udder with ample teats that will stretch as she continues to nurse her kid. Crescendo is a bit ornery but has been coming around while her hormones are surging. With careful consideration, Crescendo has the potential to be a wonderful brood and show doe.

Sold



Brazen ++++ (00-02 as just a teeny tiny 2-month old)
wattles

Brazen is another doe from great lines. Her dam is arguably one of he nicest all around does I've bred so far. Brazen's maternal grand dam and grandsire were also both ARMCH SGCH goats and her paternal grandsire is a CH in ADGA. Although her dam, maternal grand dam, and maternal grandsire are all quite tall, this doe takes more after her sire and is considerably smaller (as we have been working to achieve).

Brazen was ADGA appraised as young stock ++++ (00-02 as just a teeny tiny 2-month old). She is dual registered in ADGA and is eligible for AGS registry (if not already done). Although her teats are smaller than I prefer, she has a nice udder texture but not much foreudder. Her grand dam was one of our Top 10ers and this family (dam, aunt, grand dam, and grandsire) were among the first SGs in the breed. Brazen is dry (not in milk) now. She was exposed to a buck and could possibly have a due date into late October but she is showing no signs of pregnancy at this stage. Another in-your-pocket doe, very friendly and loves people. I prefer to send her to a pet home because I want to promote larger teats, but the right milking home can take her as breeding stock.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Here is a list of the junior does available at this time:

Sold



Agape Oaks REM Exquisite - RESALE, wattles

Exquisite is a sweet doe I bought from Pam in the Karen Senn Memorial Fundraiser Auction on ComeToTheFarm. I remember really being enamored with their sire's lines but Agape Oaks is phasing out NDs and I am packing to move so it's hard to find my old pictures and research. If I recall, they were really starting to get noticed in the show ring around the time that I reserved Exquisite. --Update: Pam emailed to say Exquisite's dam is doing well in another herd and Exquisite's grand dam, Oreo, is still with Pam, recently Best in Show as an 8-year-old, 8th freshener! Congratulations, Pam!

I have never bred this doe. She was very slow to grow (not a bad thing!!) and I did not want to breed her when she was so small. She was shown last year as a junior and did ok for her first time out. VERY friendly-- annoyingly so!!


Sold



Fair Skies AM Cleopatra
wattles

Cleopatra is registered in ADGA and can be registered in AGS (if not already done). Her dam, Yipsy, is also for sale and you can see her ad for more information.

This doe is not yet full grown but is not yet anywhere near the breed's ADGA/AGS height maximum. However, her sire and dam are both rather tall and her grandparents on her sire's side were at the max height for the breed.

Cleopatra has never been bred. She is not in milk and is available for breeding. From her dam, I expect a large, soft, easy-milking udder with large teats. Admiralty's dam and sisters are big producers and his dam (Cleopatra's grand dam) was one of our Top 10ers. Admiralty's sisters. his dam, and his sire were among the first SGs in the breed.

Cleopatra is shy and can be a bit hard to catch but like most of my shy goats, once she calms down in your arms, she tends to be a little clingy. She seems to take after her mother and I expect her to come around with attention. She's in too big of a herd here to get that attention with my work schedule and now our move has forced her sale. I have too many of this line in my herd and this is how we make downsizing decisions!

Sold



Fair Skies AM CanICallYouMine?
wattles

Mine is registered in ADGA and can be registered in AGS (if not already done). Her dam, Amoré, is also for sale and you can see her ad for more information.

This doe is not yet full grown but is not yet anywhere near the breed's ADGA/AGS height maximum. However, her sire is rather tall and her grandparents on her sire's side were at the max height for the breed. Her dam, though, is teeny tiny and we were hoping to keep heights within the breed standard with this breeding.

Mine has never been bred. She is not in milk and is available for breeding. From her dam, I expect a compact, soft, easy-milking udder with plump teats and open orifices. Admiralty's dam and sisters are big producers and his dam (Mine's grand dam) was one of our Top 10ers. Admiralty's sisters. his dam, and his sire were among the first SGs in the breed.

Mine is another shy one and can be a bit hard to catch but like most of my shy goats, once she calms down in your arms, she tends to be a little clingy. She seems to take after her mother and I expect her to come around with attention. Like her doppleganger, Cleopatra, she's in too big of a herd here to get that attention with my work schedule and now our move has forced her sale. I have too many of this line in my herd and this is how we make downsizing decisions!


Sold

Fair Skies Champagne Supernova
polled

Champagne is registered in ADGA and can be registered in AGS (if not already done). Her dam, Boheme, is also for sale and you can see her ad for more information.

This doe is not yet full grown. Champagne has never been bred. She is not in milk and she is available for breeding. From her dam, I expect a compact, soft, easy-milking udder with plump teats and open orifices. From her sire, we have butter soft udders, plump teats, open orifices, and permanent dual champions in ADGA and AGS.

Champagne is another shy one and can be a bit hard to catch but like most of my shy goats, once she calms down in your arms, she tends to be a little clingy. She is a bit more flighty than her mother, but I expect her to come around with attention. Like some of the others her age, she's in too big of a herd here to get that attention with my work schedule and now our move has forced her sale.

Our bucks available for sale:

Sold

Fair Skies XK Attu 85 VV+ (01-01)
polled

Attu is one of only THREE bucks we have ever offered for sale with our herd name! The son of a finished, dual champion in ADGA and AGS, this buck was produced from a cross to a doe that at the time had the highest rear udder in our herd. He is a polled beautiful buck that is easy to handle and is well within the breed standard height allowances. He was LA'd by ADGA as a tiny yearling and did well.

You can see pictures of Attu's dam as a junior and first freshener here: http://fairskiesalaska.com/referencedoes.htm#YoYo.


Available

My Kids Farm SF Over The Moon - RESALE

Moon is the son of a CH in ADGA and an SG dam that really excelled in dairy character and longevity in the breed with over 16 years and 18 freshenings in another herd. Available for resale.

Sold



CH Fair Skies XK Yu'Pik Me *S
+EE 87 (03-00)

FIRST Fair Skies buck EVER made available for purchase as breeding stock



Yu'Pik's dam, WaitingForMe
high milk on 305-day test was 4.7#

Yu'Pik is the FIRST buck we ever held back and the first we have ever offered for sale with our herd name!

3+ x Best Buck in Show (Benedict, Acton, Henning, ADGA)
3+ x Champion Challenge winner (Harrell, Acton, Henning, ADGA)
4+ x GC Sr. Buck (Harrell, Benedict, Henning, Acton, ADGA)
1+ x RGC Sr. Buck (Senn, ADGA)
2009 ANDDA All-American 1-2-Yr.-Old

Yu'Pik Me has earned his CH in ADGA and *S status in AGS and is only one win away from his MCH in AGS. He actually has more than the number of required wins to finish his permanent dual championship (including several wins over his MCH CH sire and Best Buck in Show awards over all breeds present), but many were restricted wins because he didn't have any kids on the ground then. Since we were beginners in dairy goats when he was born, we waited to breed him until he had matured, had already won many times, and had his first LA session as a yearling.

This boy has also improved with age, LA'ing as a three-year-old +EE 87 (03-00). He was marked down in general appearance (+) for coming out of winter with a bit more fluff than desired on a dairy breed. When slimmed down he is a stunner and the very first buck we have ever offered with our herd name attached for breeding! Our only complaint is low thurls, which accentuates the need for a slightly more level topline. The photo does not do him justice as he was standing twisted on uneven ground and not in the mood to cooperate (the same goes for my reluctant photographer). Yu'Pik's sire is also an ARMCH CH **and his dam was a great milker with a high test day of 4.7# on 305-day DHI in her second freshening.**

We have seen some amazingly upright pasterns on strong feet, wide rears, and really nice, plump, easy-to-milk teats with sublimely soft udder texture on his daughters. His girls were definitely vying for the "silk purse" award in our herd! Show/DHI milking herd preferred.

UBER sweet buck. He is docile and easy to handle and has always loved people. In fact, we used to call him, "You Pick Me Up!" because he always wanted to be held as a kid. Watch out, he loves giving kisses! lol!

Sold

My Kids Farm SF Amadeus - RESALE

Amadeus is the son of a CH in ADGA and an SGCH dam that was THE doe to beat in Alaska for a numbers of years. She was a beautiful doe who had a high milk test day of 4.0# on 305-day DHI and LA'd 91 EEEE (08-03). She was a multiple-time Best of Breed and Best Udder doe that none of my girls in my herd ever defeated in the show ring. Her son, Amadeus, has been here for a couple of years now and he is available for resale.

Remember, bucks must have a companion year 'round!

Email us to inquire about these boys.

We have pets and wethers available for sale!

Sold



Caramello

Caramello is an unregistered doeling out of My Kids Farm SF Butterfinger. She is a friendly pet NOT for breeding.


Sold



Abracadabra


Houdini was ADGA appraised as young stock +VV+ (01-03). She is registered in ADGA and is eligible for AGS registry. She is dry and available for breeding now. Houdini's mother is a Nationwide Top 10 milker, our girl that did 6.8# in a day 3 years on test (that's more than 3 quarts!), and her father was an ARMCH SGCH *+S *+B buck that last appraised 89 VEE (05-05). Her teats were small when she started out but they have lengthened considerably with her first freshening and when I was going over the girls I wrote down "big teats now!" (and she is dry) haha! Prefer to send her to a pet home, but the right milking home can take her as breeding stock.

Sold

yearling wethers

I have four yearling wethers available as pets or companions. One is black and white, one is a little tan chamoise, one is a fancy chocolate and white, and one is a brown and black buckskin.

Sold



Yarrow - RESALE

Yarrow is a spoiled rotten, teeny tiny doe for sale. She came from awesome lines down south but hasn't thrived in the cooler weather like her herdmates that made the trip with her. She simply hasn't grown much and I have not wanted to breed such a small doe. She is available without papers to a pet home only. Total lap goat!!

Available

Zoinks

Zoinks is our first and favorite wether. Adorable and extremely friendly - he loves to be a lap goat or jogging buddy! Pet, but registerable in AGS if you want. His sister, Zsa Zsa, is also available as a milker.

Wethers make excellent pets, heat detectors, companions, and brush controllers!  Check back often or contact us to reserve a wether available once weaned and healed from wethering surgery. In the meantime, check out our other pets & companions available!

Sold



Blonde Bombshell

Blondie is a a PET WITHOUT papers. She is GORGEOUS but has a teat spur and will not be available as breed stock.

We practice strict bio-security.  Our herd comes from clean-tested, high-quality stock with a long history of negative test results.  Additionally, our vet recently tested and examined the entire herd and the results confirm we remain negative for CAE, CL, and Johne's (no sign of the diseases found).  Copies of complete test results are always available for inspection by prospective buyers and they are available for download from our Herd Health page.

All our goats are either disbudded or naturally hornless (polled) and we suggest they live with other disbudded or hornless animals. Under no circumstances will we send a goat to a home where they will live alone. There must be at least two goats kept together at all times.  This means a doe needs to be with at least one other doe or a wether at all times and a buck needs to be with at least one other buck or a whether of similar size/weight as a companion.  The only other option is to practice rotational breeding.  The ideal set-up for rotational breeding is to select three does and a buck or two does, a wether, and a buck.  In a three-doe, one-buck rotational breeding scenario, the does are rotated between the buck and doe pen for breeding.  There are always two does in the doe pen and one in the buck pen.  In a two-doe, one-wether, one-buck set-up, the wether rotates between the buck and doe pen, depending on when a doe is in with the buck for breeding.  In any of these plans, no one is ever alone except for a brief period at kidding time or when they are isolated for illness.  This is ideal for herd (prey) animals that need safety, defense, and warmth in numbers, so please plan accordingly.  We have plenty of other goats to pair and we do offer discounts for multiple purchases. Our goats may go in pairs, as companions to any of our other goats for sale from our herd, or to another solid, experienced home with other goats of their size.  If you don't have experience with goats, we can help you build a network of mentors!
