With the passing of one of our beloved AQHA stallions "Preferred Platinum" - own son of "Chicks Beduino", we have decided to discontinue our equine breeding program and concentrate on increasing our livestock herds, particularly Boer Goats and Dorper sheep. We will maintain our personal riding horses, but will be selling off our breeding horses and give someone else the wonderful opportunity to make their own future, experiences and memories to draw from.
"Platinum" passed at the age of 22 years old, and we were very fortunate and blessed to have owned him for 20 of those years.
We are focusing our attentions on breeding quality livestock animals. We currently have a small herd of Red Head Boer goats as well as a small herd of Spotted Boer goats.
We have some Dorper Sheep that we are working on increasing.
We also have a herd of assorted breed Dairy goats that supply milk for us, our natural products and any of our animals that need it.
Tidbits of information below about the Boer Goat and
Dorper Sheep breed...
Boer goats are a South African breed that was selected for meat rather than milk production; due to selective breeding and improvement, the Boer goat has a fast growth rate and excellent carcass qualities, making it one of the most popular breeds of meat goat in the world. Boer goats have a high resistance to disease and adapt well to hot, dry semi-deserts.
Boer goats possess long, pendulous ears. They are noted for being docile, fast-growing, and having high fertility rates. Does are reported to have superior mothering skills as compared to other breeds. Boer goats tend to gain weight at about the same rate as their sire, so a buck from a proven fast-growing bloodline will command the highest price, as its offspring will tend to also be fast growers.
The Dorper is a South African breed developed in the 1930's from the crossing of Dorset Horn and Blackheaded Persian sheep. The breed was developed for the arid extensive regions of South Africa. One of the most fertile of sheep breeds that is hornless with good body length and a short light covering of hair and wool. The breed has the characteristic black head (Dorper) as well as white heads (White Dorper). Furthermore, the breed shows exceptional adaptability, hardiness, reproduction rates and growth (reaching ~80 lbs at 3 1/2 to 4 months of age), as well as good mothering abilities.
