Driveway breeding service is available--contact us for more information. No, we will NOT lease a buck off the property, so don't even ask. To see our beloved but departed bucks, click here.

Flat Rocks Miracle Max
Sire: Gladys Porter Zoo Leprechaun (Goodwood Z Ali Babba +*S x Gladys Porter Zoo Aquarius)

Dam: Flat Rocks Masquerade (Flat Rocks Mighty Mike x MCH Flat Rocks Surprise *D)

DOB 2/16/06 extended pedigree

(Photo by D. Gotthardt.)The birth of this buck really was a miracle--his 14 year old sire was supposed to be sterile, and his elderly dam had been retired from breeding. However, grandma and grampa had other ideas. Both parents are a tribute to longevity in the breed. I really like the elegance of this buck, though he does persist in adopting the typical butt-tucked, stubborn buck position in the show ring. One of Max's first daughters, Ocean Spray Catch the Wave, earned her AR and milk star as a 2-year old on her first freshening. On lease at Charlie's Acres.

Show Record : 1 x RGCH (ADGA, judge Pete Snyder, May 2009)

Dragonfly IH High Tide *S
Sire: PromisedLand Incredible Hunk *S (ARMCH Twin Creeks LS Luck of the Draw +*S E x MCH Gay-Mor's RA Nightowl 2*D)
Dam: Twin Creeks BW Pacifica 4*D E AR (MCH Twin Creeks BH Bay Watch +*S E x MCH Gay-Mor's JJU Nonpareil 3*D E)

I've not been able to get Sweetwater to settle for the last few years, so I was very glad to get this beautiful brother of hers back...hope he will have a few kids for us before he retires!

 

Dragonfly G Mighty King Asa
Sire: ARMCH Twin Creeks BW Giacomo Puccini +*S +B E (MCH Twin Creeks BH Bay Watch +*S E x MCH-CH Twin Creeks WB Madam Butterfly 2*D 'VG')
Dam: Twin Creeks AH Chiaroscuro 3*D E (PGCH/MCH Little Rascals American Hero +S x MCH Twin Creeks BW Fantasea 2*D)
DOB 9/18/07
extended pedigree

(Photo courtesy of Proctor Hill Farm) When this kid was born I thought he was one of the prettiest bucks we had produced, and he knew it very well...what a big personality. I am so happy that he has made his way back here. He has not had very many kids for us yet, but those he has produced possess real pizzazz, as well as beautiful wide flat rumps and gorgeous rear angulation. Udders TBD, but with his dam and paternal grand dam, I will be very surprised if they are anything but capacious with lovely attachments.

Show Record : 2 x RGCH, 1 x GCH

Dragonfly HFX Aragorn (Ranger )
Sire: MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax (Rosasharn Tom's Water Tabby *S x Stonewall's India Wilkes)
Dam: Dragonfly IH Electra (PromisedLand Incredible Hunk *S x Twin Creeks WB Summer Blonde)
May, 2014
DOB 5/28/09
extended pedigree

Of all of the Halifax sons I retained, I think Ranger is the one that most resembles his illustrious sire. His two siblings have been extremely successfull: Dragonfly HFX Carmen VVVE 89 is the foundation doe for the Sunnydale Farm Nigerian dwarf herd, having produced two SG daughters, one of whom is a finished CH appraised EEEE 91, and the other with multiple legs earned, appraised EVEE 90, as well as multiple very promising younger offspring. Dragonfly HFX Tanunda, owned by Kyeema Ridge farm, recently appraised EEEE 92. This year (2015)I realized to my surprise that I had retained very few Ranger daughters, so I have remedied that, I hope, retaining 4 daughters out of some of my best does.

Dragonfly L Garibaldi
Sire: Dragonfly TA Lancelot du Lac (Stonewall's Turner Ashby E x ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For the Party*D E)
Dam: Twin Creeks AH Chiaroscuro 3*D E (PGCH/MCH Little Rascals American Hero +S x MCH Twin Creeks BW Fantasea 2*D)

DOB 5/31/09
extended pedigree

When you have a buck who just looks great all the time, lounging in the pasture, hairy and stinky, you know you did a good thing bringing him home again. Gari was sold as a kid and went to a nice farm where he had some pretty kids, and when they needed to move him on, thank goodness they offered him back to me (thanks, Eva!!!). He has several brothers who were successful herd sires in Texas (see Pretty Noel) and Wisconsin (see Olson Acres). As soon as I set eyes on him, I thought I had something pretty nice here to work with. Gari is linebred on the great MCH Flat Rocks Surprise *D 'E', through both Flat Rocks Flash, one of my favorites of all time, and his half brother the great Gem, and his pedigree also includes the other two main lines I love to work with, Raising Arizona, and Raha Acres Twink'sPixie. Up close, he is a combination of probably my two best does, Party and Chiara. Polled, as a bonus.

Show Record : 2 x RGCH, 1 x GCH

TX Twin Creeks PKM Avatar *S *B
Sire: Piddlin Acres PV Pokemon *S (Twin Creeks BW Peaceful Voyage *S VG x MCH/CH Piddlin Acres Picachu *D E)
Dam: MCH Gay-Mor's JJU Nonpareil 3*D E (Gay-Mor Berry's Johnny Jump-Up +*S x Gay-Mor Tut's Lorna Doone 2*D)
DOB 12/22/09
extended pedigree

I am very excited about our new herd sire--he is very similar in breeding to our favorite Pacifica, as well as some of the most successful herd sires in the breed (see Twin Creeks BW Montego Bay, Rebel w/out a Cause, Fathom This, and Brown Dirt Cowboy, among others, and for a real thrill, Google their daughters...) They are all very very prepotent producers of strong udder floors, high rear udders, and especially, that near perfect teat placement that is still far too rare in the breed--I am really looking forward to some beautiful udders . Avatar has some really nice daughters from 2011 that have freshened with cookie-cutter identical gorgeous udders.

Show Record : 3 x 1st place, 2 x RGCH out of 3 times shown against the big boys, May, 2012; 4 x RGCH, May, 2013.

Dragonfly HFX Halcyon

Dam: Dragonfly HFX Vesta (MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax x Dragonfly M Kestrel)
DOB 3/1/10

Okay, this guy ought to be Halifax come again...but at least at first glance, he sure is not. In fact, he is a very unprepossessing little guy, though he is absolutely the most lovey boy in the buck pen. However, as they say, it's not how they look but what they do, so hopefully we will see what he can do this spring.

I wanted to leave what I wrote above, now that I finally have a mature clipped picture of this little guy--he has turned out very well, I think. He's still the shortest guy in the buck pen, (and still the sweetest), but he is beautifully put together. A sleeper that I believe I should be using much more.

Full brother to Demeter, and a very dignified and beautiful guy.

Algedi Farm MH Solaris *B
Sire: Algedi Farm Manuka Honey (Twin Creeks BW Montego Bay +*S *B x SGCH Rosasharn's UMT Tupelo Honey 4*D)
Dam: SGCH Rosasharn's TL Zenith 3*D 3*M EEVE 90 (ARMCH Rosasharn's Tiger L +*S 'E' x ARMCH Rosasharn's Eclipse 2*D)
DOB 3/1/10
extended pedigree LA: not yet done

(Photo courtesy of Proctor Hill Farm) Solaris represents the extreme in dairy character, with very lean thighs and an elegant profile. The udders behind him are very strong, and his pedigree includes one of my very favorite crosses in the Nigerian breed, Baywatch to Nonpareil. I am expecting very strong udder attachments and a lot of elegance from his kids.

Polled. I just love this little guy, even though he doesn't like to help us photograph him. More impressive in person than this picture shows. Quite a few daughrters retained, all nice.

Show Record : 4 x 1st, 3 x Jr GCH, 1 x Jr RGCH

Dragonfly IH Helios
Sire: PromisedLand Incredible Hunk (ARMCH Twin Creeks LS Luck of the Draw +*S E x MCH Gay-Mor's RA Nightowl 2*D)

DOB 3/11/11
extended pedigree  

Well, this is an awful picture of a really gorgeous little buck. I was so pleased with his daughter Sulis this year (2015) that I have given him a lot more work to do this fall, and will hopefully get a better picture of him this spring.

Dragonfly IH Poseidon
Sire: PromisedLand Incredible Hunk (ARMCH Twin Creeks LS Luck of the Draw +*S E x MCH Gay-Mor's RA Nightowl 2*D)
Dam: CH Flat Rocks Charybdis (Flat Rocks Gem x Flat Rocks Sea Siren)
DOB 5/6/11
extended pedigree  

Not our most endearing personality, but beautiful all the same. Here's hoping for lots of little JoJo udders running around here.

Flat Rocks Holy Bull
Sire: Flat Rocks Heir Apparent (MCH Flat Rocks Fox Fire 'E' x MCH Flat Rocks Surprise *D 'E')
Dam: Flat Rocks Holy Cow (Flat Rocks Gem x Flat Rocks Holy Terror)
DOB 1/11/11
extended pedigree  

Our newest outside herd sire, and a beautiful boy he is, as well as sweet and docile. Just love his first kids here, and I am keeping quite a few. I am sure that one look will tell you why.

Dragonfly HLU Nikola Tesla
Sire: Dragonfly HFX Hallucination (MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax x ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D E)
Dam: Dragonfly IH Electra (PromisedLand Incredible Hunk *S x Twin Creeks WB Summer Blonde)

Finally a photo of Nikola, looking a little naked at the Altamont Buck show, 2014, where he won his class several times.

Flat Rocks Sea Fire
Sire: Flat Rocks Ember (MCH Flat Rocks Fox Fire 'E' x Steele Ballew Adolla Dolly)
Dam: Flat Rocks FF Sea Star (MCH Flat Rocks Fox Fire 'E' x Flat Rocks Sea Siren)
DOB 4/17/14
extended pedigree  

(Photo courtesy of Dreahook and Lady Walkers Half Moon farms) An unexpected but welcome addition, thanks, Kathy Plutnick and Lori Yeske! Sea Fire is linebred on Fox Fire, sire of our gorgeous and ageless Ella Enchanted, and his dam Sea Star is half sister to our gorgeous CH Flat Rocks Charybdis *D (Best Udder, 2011 ADGA National Show). Also, he has a moonspot :- )

Dragonfly ARG Triton
Sire: Dragonfly HFX Ranger (Aragorn) (MCH/CH Dawnland Tabby's Halifax x Dragonfly IH Electra *D AR)
Dam: GCH Flat Rocks Charybdis (Flat Rocks Gem x Flat Rocks Sea Siren)

DOB 7/2/14
extended pedigree LA

Triton was sold as a kid, but I was thrilled to be able to bring him back home. His dam and paternal granddam have two of my best udders, and his sire has produced some of my strongest general appearance. Not only is he very petite, and very personable, but he is also the fastest gun in the west. Or east. Seriously.

Dragonfly SOL Capriccio
Sire: Algedi Farm MH Solaris *S (Algedi Farm Manuka Honey x SGCH Rosasharn's TL Zenith 3*D EEVE 90)
Dam: SG ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D E VEEE 90 (Flat Rocks Buried Treasure x Flat Rocks Party Time)
DOB 2/27/15
extended pedigree LA

When my gorgeous old Party gave me buck/doe twins in 2015, it was obvious they both needed to stay. It wasn't a difficult choice, they are very satisfactory indeed.
