Syringa 2016

2016 Syringa Dairy Goat Show and Specialty Show, Boise, ID

We had a great time at Syringa! This was a 4 ring show, with the first ring being the Specialty show! Pearl, our Senior doe, took Reserve Grand Champion in the Specialty Show, out of 79 does! Tahoma also took Reserve Grand Champion in the Specialty Show! This was great news to us, because Tahoma and Pearl have 4 doelings who did very well also, with Granny's Pearl taking Reserve Grand Champion Junior Doe! Apache, our other heard sire, took Reserve Grand Champion in one ring. (Many of the show photos didn't come out right, so here are before, during and after show photos. :))

Apache, the judge favored his width, strength, and stature.

The judge liked his chiseled appearance, and dairy character.

4*M Bramblestone Pal Pearl Tea, second Freshener


  1. Pearl Tea certainly looks like her dam, if I didn't know better, I'd think it was Hot Tea!

    1. Very true! In fact, when Granny's Pearl walked into the ring to get her Reserve Grand, my first thought was she looks just like Pearl did when she was a doeling! Good strong genes!
