FMCH Hidden Creek's Diamond *P (3rd gen)
Sire: Hidden Creek's Rebock (2nd)
SS: Hidden Creek's Southern Cross (1st)
SD: Hidden Creek's Nike (1st)
Dam: Hidden Creek's Chicklet (2nd)
DS: Hidden Creek's Southern Cross (1st)
DD: Stone's Throw Tomten (1st)
DIAMOND is the dam of Jasper's dam, Hidden Creek's Easter Sunrise. She is also the dam of Grant's sire, Echo Hill's Ulysses. Diamond has one of the best udders that I have ever seen on a MiniNubian. Her udder is soft, pliable, capacious and milks heavy her whole lactation. It is super well attached in every direction and is easy to milk. In 2005 her buck kid earned JR Res. CH. Her topline is incredibly straight and level. Diamond also has a wonderful personality. I am very happy to have two of her grandsons here. They are doing great things in our herd.

EASTER has the same nice topline as her dam (Diamond) above. Easter is a smooth and well blended doe. She also has a nicely attached, capacious udder. Easter has been 3X RCH, 1X BUOB, and 1X BUS.

AMBER'S udder was similar in shape and build to Diamond's. She had wonderful attachments, great teats and tons of capacity. She has been 1X GCH, 2X RCH, 2X BOB and 1X BUOB. Unfortunately Amber died in 2006. Amber was a really nice doe and it is a loss to the MiniNubian breed that she is now gone. Her son's and daughters will carry on her heritage. Amber is the dam of our buck Echo Hill's Ulysses S. Grant *B. Photos courtesy of Dannette Hackman - Echo Hill's Farm.

COWKID is 75% Nigerian and 25% Nubian. I am thrilled with her udder - It is well attached and VERY capacious. Her rear udder is excellent. Her teats are well placed and easy-to-milk. CowKid milks about 5 lbs. a day. Her conformation is very nice. Her kids have inherited her great udder and wonderful conformation and tend to have beautiful Nigerian type colorings. CowKid is only 21.5 inches tall.

STARRY is black with white spots. She is 50% Nubian and 50% Nigerian. She is 27 inches tall, a little on the tall side for a 50/50, but her kids have all been significantly smaller. Starry has good conformation and a very nice, capacious udder. Starry is a good milker giving 4-8 pounds of milk a day and she is very easy to milk. Her daughter, CowKid, has one of the nicest udders I have seen and is also a very good milker.

Sire: Morning-Glow Flax (3rd gen.)
ss: Carey's Red Hot Papa (2nd)
sd: Morning-Glow Brown Sugar (3rd)
Dam: Careys Sweet Pea (1st gen.)
ds: Carey's I Wanna Be A Millionaire (N)
dd: Buttin' Heads Mont Olive (ND)
DOB: 2005
SOPHIE is full sister to our buck Country Dreams Charlie Brown. She is blonde with her color being white in the winter and a creamy color in the spring and summer. Her ears are 2/3 drop and her nose is very roman. She is extremely friendly and loves people, especially children. Sophie had a single doeling with beautiful breed character in June 2006 (can be seen on our main website). Sophie's udder is tightly attached and well shaped. It is still on the small side, but I am hoping she increases in capacity as she matures (she is milked out in this picture). Her full sisters are milking 5-6 lbs per day. Her dam is also a wonderful milker. (see 'Rock' above)

cloudy.jpg

Green Gables Cloudy Night
Dam: The Sim's Muffin
ds: Maple Springs Frosty's Image
dd: Thunder Ridge's Simplicity
Sire: Green Gables Morgan
ss: Humble Woods Little John
sd: Old Orhard Trinket
CLOUDY has good conformation, she is black with white spots and gold trim. Cloudy gave 8-10 pounds of milk per day! She is a 1st generation, 50/50 MiniNubian. She has had many beautiful kids on our farm. Her daughters and granddaughters are proving to be great milkers with wonderful personalities. Her daughter Misty, granddaughter Raisin, and great-granddaughter Grace, have all won 1st place in their online shows. Grace and Misty went on to take Jr and Sr Mini-Dairy GCH in the show! We are so happy with Cloudy's descendants.

4th generation - AMERICAN
Sire: *B Echo Hill's Jasper
ss: Echo Hill's Lord Apollo
sd: Hidden Creek's Easter Sunrise
Dam: Green Gables CB Ivory
ds: Country Dreams Charlie Brown
dd: Green Gables HDH Hail Storm
DOB: 6/7/07
STORMY was a very correct 4th gen. doeling. She had very nice breed character and wonderful conformation. She had a wonderful personality to match her good looks. She is a great example of what we are trying to breed in the MiniNubians. Her dam, Green Gables CB Ivory has a beautiful udder with tons of milk. Stormy's sire, *B Echo Hill's Jasper, also has lots of milk in his pedigree. Unfortunately we lost Stormy in the spring of '08 so we weren't able to breed her at all. She is placed on this page as an example of what we are striving for. In 2008/2009 we are repeating the breeding that produced Stormy in hopes of getting another kid like her.

Muffin was our first Nubian and her legacy lives on through her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. Muffin was black with a white star, frosted ears and muzzle, and gold trim. She gave about 12 pounds of milk per day. She had a nice udder with large, easy-to-milk teats. Muffin has given us many beautiful MiniNubian kids. Muffin was a very sweet and affectionate goat. She will not be forgotten!

DEE was our first Nigerian Dwarf. She was a good milker and had a wonderful personality. I apoligize for the poor picture, but it is the only one I have of her. She looks quite ready for a Wisconsin winter doesn't she?!
