SG Blue Bear BD Hershey Kisses (3/16/10) joined our herd in the Spring of 2014, thanks to Kevin and Becky Allen at Blue Bear Farm.  She is a flashy, blue eyed doe with great length, body capacity and a capacious mammary system.  Hershey is sweet as can be... my lap goat.   Hershey earned her final championship legs in 2018 at the Udder Spectacular Show in Monroe, WA and the Wine Country Classic in Kennewick!   In addition she earned Best Udder of Breed at the Clark County Fair in August 2018.

CH Blue Bear BD Little Willow (5/25/11) was our first doe.  My husband picked her out as a bottle baby and I'm thankful for his good eye!  She is a correct doe with a high, tight, and beautifully blended mammary system.  We have retained three of her doelings as this is just the type of doe we are breeding for.  She earned her final championship leg at the 2015 Evergreen State Fair Open Show and we are thrilled!

Willow has won eight BOB titles.

Dam: Gladdie Acres HB Margarita  DS: AGS Piddlin Acres Hit the Bullseye  DD: Gladdie Acres Tequila Sunset

We were contacted by Mary's former owners as they were dispersing their herd.  What a great addition to Highland Ranch!  Mary has now earned two championship legs (both in 2020 at large, competitive shows), one best of breed, and two reserve champion placings.  She has thrown beautiful kids and we retained a 2020 buckling.  Mary is a total love.

Dam:  Blue Bear A Dilettante  DD:  Blue Bear BD Hershey Kisses  SS: Camanna BJ Blue Dakota


Robin is a doe with an attitude but we like her anyway.  A long, level lactation each year and although a late bloomer, she has really improved year after year.  Robin kids with ease and her daughter, Highland Ranch AD Rein E Day was the 5th Place Intermediate Kid at 2019 Nationals and went on to earn her junior leg that year.

Dam: Dragonfly ARG Maine Attraction 2*M VEEE89 DS: Dragonfly HFX Aragorn   DD: Dragonfly T Ninevah 1*M  EEEV90

Thanks to Marilyn Woolsey (Almar Acres) for the chance to own this beautiful doe.  In her first show of 2018, Idaho earned her dry leg and went on to win Best Junior Doe In Show. So exciting! She freshened with a beautiful udder last year, earning an "E" in mammary as a first freshener.  

We love this long, correct doe and her well attached mammary system with nice texture.

Sire:  Highland Ranch 8SR It's PayDay  SS: Hetland Creek TT 8 Second Ride  SD: SG Blue Bear BD Hershey Kisses
Dam:  Highland Ranch MM Talkeetna  DS:  Camanna RZ Moonlight Mojo  DD: CH Blue Bear BD Little Willow
Dot earned two ADGA Reserve Grand Champion Junior Doe placings in 2017.  

Dot keeps getting more beautiful.  She has increased in depth this year (2020) - we'll get new photos uploaded soon.  We especially love her correct front end assembly - nice tight shoulders and elbows.

Highland Ranch FS Nrthn Lights  -  2*M  -  "Maggie"

Maggie won her first three huge yearling milker classes of 2019!  Buttery soft udder texture with large teats make her a dream to milk. She was over full for linear appraisal and we think it affected her mammary score.  Another beautiful Willow daughter.  Maggie won a reserve grand in 2020.

Dam:  CH Blue Bear BD Little Willow  EEEE91  DS: SG Camanna BJ Blue Dakota  DD: CH Blue Bear SB Afternoon Delight

Linear Appraisal:

2019 VVV+85 (FF)  (Maggie was over-full at the time of her appraisal.  We are confident that she will score much higher in mammary at her next appraisal.)


Maggie milked 5.9lbs on her one day test this year as a 2nd freshener.  WOW!  Easy to milk, buttery soft texture and beautifully attached mammary.

Highland Ranch NW I Call Dibs - 2*M  - "Callie"

Sire:  Stayawhile TV Newsworthy  SS: Fuji Farm ATS Mi Incentivo  SD:  Stayawhile GK Takara
Dam:  SGCH Blue Bear BD Hershey Kisses  DS:  Camanna BJ Blue Dakota  DD: Blue Bear Easter Bunny
Callie is super sweet and has the widest, highest eschutcheon we've ever seen on a kid.  She won her junior leg in 2018. We kept her dry in 2019, and she freshened this year as a two year old. She has great milk production just like her mom.  -updated photos coming soon-

As a FF, Callie milked 4.2lbs on her one-day verified test!  We love a FF who milks consistently 4+lbs.

Highland Ranch PD Alyeska - "Aly"

3/18/17

Sire: Highland Ranch 8SR It's Payday  SS: HetlandCreek TT 8 Second Ride *B  SD: SG Blue Bear BD Hershey Kisses
Dam: CH Blue Bear BD Little Willow   DS: Camanna BJ Blue Dakota  DD: CH Blue Bear SB Afternoon Delight
We love this girl... looks so much like her beautiful mom. Her beautiful udder is a reflection of her dam's. We are loving how highly attached it is with nice capacity for her size, and a strong medial suspensory ligament. Aly has earned one reserve champion win. Aly got 6th place out of 66 two year olds at the ADGA National Show in 2019!
Unfortunately, Aly had a tough kidding in 2019.  We believe she got rammed resulting in dead kids and a very difficult delivery which left her with scar tissue on her cervix.  She won't be able to be bred again so she is enjoying retirement here.
