My Sable Venture
When I decided I wanted to dabble in Sables I started my search for a mature brood doe. I never expected to end up with a doe the quality of Patina Grit's Derby. The owner of Derby, Carolyn Morrison, transported Derby back to her breeder, Cindi Shelley in NY and Cindi delivered her to the National Show in Harrisburg, PA. Cindi was even penned one aisle over from us so it was an easy move for Derby to join my herd. AND Carolyn Morrison and her family came to watch Derby show. I milked Derby three times a day to get her production back up as she had been transported twice and was a little stressed by it all. I don't usually bond with mature goats but for some reason Derby seems special to me. I also bought semen from two Sable bucks and I plan on AI'ing Derby to either CH Patina Grey Yaris or Caprikorn Mercio Espejo. I also brought home a yearling, Patina Y Fancy! who placed second in the Junior Yearling class and a 2016 kid, Sable Swanktuary Rising Sun that we picked up in Indiana on our way home.

She is doing great. Fits right in with her age group.
