Shy is one of the few kids we've gotten from the lovely Spot. We were very pleased with the FF udder and we knew she would be slow to mature (like her dam Spot)...but mature she has !
Shy milked through 2014 in her first lactation after easily achieving her milk star in 2013. Her second freshening as a 4 year old gave us two lovely doelings in 2015 (Whisper and Flirt). We brought her out to show in 2015 and she was Grand 4 times and BDIS once !!
Shy is our very FIRST SGCH lamancha ...making us extra proud of her !
Add to that, she was 7th place 6 yo at 2017 ADGA Nationals. As a 2nd place 7yo at 2018 ADGA National we got to stand in the ring for champion line up and stood behind a lovely doe that was Reserve National Champion. She also won Lifetime Milk and Lifetime Butterfat awards!!!
We fell in love with her 2016 kids, Hullabaloo and Hutzpah and retained both AND repeated that breeding with Solan. We retained the resulting 2017 doeling Jezebel. An AI to SGCH Quixote Kate's Kareeem resulted in a single gorgeous buckling (Latte Da King Kalmar *B) who is now returned to us from the Rivergrace herd.
2019 brought the sadness that many goat owners know all too well. Shy-Ann passed away in June very suddenly. She literally was fine one moment and suddenly collapsed dead. Necropsy revealed a huge tumor (thymoma) in her chest that she had shown us no symptoms of.
Shy went out as she lived...on her terms without alot of fanfare and going full on. We will miss her dearly and are cherishing her memory through her offspring that she has left us with.
We lost Shay-Ann in September, and just 5 months earlier we lost her mother Spot, leaving two very big holes in our hearts.
