Calico Creek J Manastash
Black and White
Stash came to us with his dam, Cinder, who is the AGS 2013 reserve national champion.. He is very well put together, and we're excited to have his genetics to continue in our herd. He looks very promising, and I'll evaluate him for strengths and weaknesses when he matures a bit more. Right now, I'm very much liking what I see. I just wish he would calm down--we call him "little psycho" for good reason. He is very skilled at goat parkour and is the only goat we have ever had escape the buck pen. I'm still not sure how he did it, not once, but twice. The pen is 5 foot no-climb welded horse panel. I have also gone out and found him stuck in the hay feeder (which is also 5 feet tall). He has superpowers, evidently. My usual goat taming tricks have thus far not worked, but we'll still give it more time. His dam is the most chill goat we own, so I'm not sure what his deal is!
Strengths: Power, power, power. I love his strength, and yet it is very easy to tell that he is a dairy goat breed. Few Nigerians seem to be able to have the width needed for robustness and longevity without losing dairy character. Excellent rear leg angulation and width of rump. Great brisket extension, just like his dam. Knowing what I know of his dam lines, length will come with time. Excellent rear arch, with PLENTY of room for daughters to have nice udders. He also has nice straight legs.
Weaknesses: He lacks clean front knees.
