Beans our Lab is supervising! She loves to help trim hooves! Last week when the weather was still nice we got all the hooves trimmed. One of those needful things to do before the weather changes! Expecting some snow tomorrow. Temps have already started to drop here in Mid Michigan.
Pic of Red Tail below... waiting for her turn on the stand to trim up her feet. Such a beautiful day... She just kept wandering around eating up the leaves.
It has turned cool, winter seems to be getting closer. We had to break ice out of buckets this morning. Always seems to happen sooner than we would like Leaves are almost all on the ground. But that means we are closer to having babies on the ground!!
We have some new pics to share with you. Some of the babies that were born this year... they are all growing so nicely! Some of these boys will be for sale, not sure when or which ones. As we have said before, we are a small operation with limited space, bad for us but good for our customers as we will tell you, we have to cull deep to keep our numbers down as we have limited space!.
Glamour and Streaks buck kid born
September 23, 2014
Brother to the buck above
Glamour and Streaks
born September 23, 2014
Here is Lightning... he is out of Double Dees and Streak. Full brother to Custom Made and Made to Order. We think this buck is a mixture of his brothers. Really nice buck! He was born June 6, 2014.
Red Barn Farm Custom Made. He is 18 months old now and is STILL growing!!! His chest has even gotten bigger this year. If you need mass and bone on your animals, this is the buck for you! We have yet to see any bucks that have the amount of bone from front to back that this guy has... he draws a lot of attention when we take him to shows. And he has a killer pedigree to boot. He has 11 ennoblements in his pedigree and he has passed both of his inspections. Book now for fall breeding!
BSA Rock N Glamour took SUPREME CHAMPION at 2014 Shiawassee County Fair. Supreme Champion means she was the doe that best replicates what the breed standard is! Congratulations to the Dairy Goat Champion and the Pygmy Goat Champion! We are so proud of Glamour!

Red Barn Farm Curly Sue took first place in her 4 to 6 month old class. Looking forward to seeing this doe continue to grow!
We let the boys out for a couple minutes today to enjoy some play time... Set up an appointment for your girls! Bring these genetics home to your farm! Can't say enough good about these bucks. They add width, mass, bone and length. And we think they are just some awfully nice looking animals to boot, not to mention they have great dispositions! We are offering Streak and Custom Made to your does. 200.00 for each doe.
Red Barn Farm Streakin' Hot made it to her first show of this year... and she brought home first place ribbon in her class! AND she took Division Champion full blood yearing doe in the first show and Reserve Champion full blood yearing doe in the second show. She is ... STREAKIN' HOT"!!
Today at Red Barn Farm we spent the day washing and clipping after the long winter and took pictures of the does that are for sale. Check out the For Sale page and see what we have to offer. Take these does home and let them make a difference in your breeding program!
Taylor started up our show season today. She took our beautiful yearling doe, Red Barn Farm Streakin' Hot to the County Pride Classic in Cassopolis, Michigan. She used her in her showmanship class. Taylor placed 3rd.... congratulations Taylor.
Spring has finally arrived here in Mid-Michigan... green grass, flowers popping up and our goats are grazing in the pasture.
We had some really nice kids hit the ground this year, hoping in about a month to post pics of the doe kids, a few yearling does, and a couple bred does that we will be offering up for sale.
