Pizzazz's 2010 daughter, GCH Agape Oaks GHIR Tiramisu 2*M, also competed at 2010
ADGA Nationals, placing 3rd in her division. In 2012, as a first freshener,
Tiramisu earned her Champion title, and placed 8th at ADGA Nationals.

Hope is a well balanced, strong yet elegant dairy doe from Agape Oaks. She
competed at ADGA Nationals in 2010 and placed 2nd in her division
for Best Udder and placed 3rd overall in her division.
Hope's 1st freshening DHI stats were: 305 DIM 675 LB 5.0% BF 4.3% Pro
during her second lactation she produced 270 lbs in 83 days. We love Hope's proud stature and her extroverted friendly nature.
Hope is 5 now and her udder is just as high and tight as it was when she was a
a two year old. We couldn't be more pleased with this wonderful doe!
Hope's Dam is Agape Oaks Amazing Grace "VG" 1*D AR, who completed
her 2007-08 Milk test with 1014 lbs in 295 days, with 5.6% butterfat and 4.2%
protein. Gracie was listed on the 2008 Top 10 ADGA Performance Breed Leaders for protein
production. Hope's Dam also had four 1st place wins,including 1st place in her class,
2006 AGS Nationals.
Hope's 2010 Linear Appraisal Score was VVVV 86, the score was a little low, but the appraiser
for the herd was extremely tough on Nigerians that year and this score was consistent with
others in the herd that later scored much better. Hope was not appraised again, because she
was sold and moved to TN immediately after 2010 Nationals. Hope's Pedigree

ss: MCH Flat Rocks Fox Fire 'E' sd: Promisedland CP Bedazzled 4*D
ds: Flat Rocks Gem dd: Sugar Creek JT Sandstone *M 'E'
kidded 4/15/11, triplets, 2 does and a buck

A half sister to the 2011 ANDDA Total Performer,GCH/ARMCH Agape Oaks Oreo 5*D 2*M 'E',
our little Urchin is an absolutely elegant doe, her dam has long been one of my personal
favorites. Urchin has the wonderful butter soft udder and gentle nature of her dam.
She oozes dairy character and has very good conformation. Her udder is deep and
capacious,her teats could be slightly larger, but she is only a 1st freshener.
She is easy to milk out, and has an excellent disposition and patience on the milkstand.
Please pardon the choppy trim, I noticed I had a missing tooth on my clipper blade part
way thru her udder clip and had to switch to a slightly longer blade to finish.

As a Junior doe, Urchin won GCH against 26 other junior does, for a restricted leg
towards a permanent champion title. Unfortunately an injury to her front right leg
has caused a bowed appearance to that leg and she is no longer shown.

Daughter of the 2011 ANDDA Total Performer, GCH/ARMCH Agape Oaks Oreo 5*D 2*M 'E'

sire: Flat Rocks Gem's Legacy +B
dam: GCH/ARMCH Agape Oaks Oreo 5*D 2*M (2012 Linear Appraisal EEEE 91)
ss: Flat Rocks Gem +S sd: Five Alarm Grace
ds: Flat Rocks Firecracker +S +B dd: Irish Whisper Charm Bracelet 4*D AR
kidded 3/5/12 with doe twins

We're so excited to have one of Oreo's daughters at Parham Farms. She's off
to a late start with breeding, as a 2+ year old first freshener, she gave us twin
doelings that were snatched up within minutes of being offered online. She has a
wonderful udder well attrached with nice udder. I lost the photo I had
of her foreudder when transferring files from a damaged hard drive. I had already
started to dry her off before I realized I'd lost the photo, (due to some family
issues, an illness and death in the family, and because Opal was a little on the lean side).
So we'll have to wait until next freshening to get a view of her clipped udder
and to put her on a milk test.

Opal's sister. Elegance was ranked 12th place 2 year old at 2012 ADGA Nationals.

Pictured above with her dam, Hope, Renata is everything I had hoped for out of this breeding.
She's so long-boned and dairy, with what I think may be the best rear end on the farm. She's a wee
bit spoled though and I have a hard time getting photos of her withou an assistant here to help me
get her to stand still.

Another line breeding on Flat Rocks Firecracker +S +B, Celeste is a little doe with
lots of promise in her pedigree. We retained Celeste in large part because of her
pedigree, but also because we really like the way her dams udder was holding up after
6 years, and we adore her dam's temperament and eagerness to be milked. We especially
like the foreudder extension and blending on her dam. Celeste's dam had suffered a birth
injury to her neck and was a small doe, but we beleive the genetics are there, as her twin
Agape Oaks FC Mary Todd is average sized, with the same wonderful udder, and temperament as
her twin sister, Shine On. Above we have included photos of Shine On's udder at 6 years old.
We look forward to watching Celeste grow.



NIGERIAN DWARF HERDSIRES:


My herdsires have the following ancestors in common who I am intentionally line breeding on:
+B Flat Rocks Fire Cracker +S a wonderful buck who sired some incredible daughters including
Agape Oaks Fire Hazard 2*M *D AR who tied the all time record for AGS One Day Milk test on 3/2/10 with 7.0 lbs
Sadly, Fire Cracker passed away at only 4 years old during a severe winter storm in 2009.
He produced many wonderful milkers. His daughter GCH/ARMCH Agape Oaks Oreo 5*D 2*M, was
named the 2011 ANDDA Total Performer.
Flat Rocks Golden Rule *M an absolutely wonderful brood doe who produced many top milkers
including Agape Oaks Amazing Grace 2*M *D AR, a 2008 ADGA top ten producer and Agape Oaks Fire Hazard 2*M *D AR
mentioned above. Goldie's daughters have been excellent producers with long level lactations and deep
mammary systems with excellent attachments that hold up well over a lifetime. Goldie passed away 12/19/10.

While I recognize that many people will not understand my choosing two animals that did not carry a
champion title from the show ring to line breed upon. I chose them because they have produced
consistently outstanding progeny especially with regard to milk production and mammary systems.
Their bloodlines together do seem to have that perfect synergy, and if you look back a generation
you'll see the names of animals that have made a huge impact on the breed, like Flat Rocks Gem, and
MCH Flat Rocks Fox Fire 'E'. I'm seeing kids with consistently wide rear ends, striaght legs,
high escutcheons, level toplines and overall wonderful conformation.

ss: MCH Flat Rocks Fox Fire "E" sd: Promisedland CP Bedazzled 4*D
ds: MCH Flat Rocks Maestro dd: Flat Rocks Golden Rule *M
Ace is primarily white with a few gray moonspots on his hindquarters, the
largest of which is about the size of a half dollar coin.

Ace's Dam completed her 2007-08 Milk test with 1014 lbs in 295 days, with 5.6% butterfat
and 4.2% protein. She was a 2008 Top 10 ADGA Performance Breed Leader for protein
production. She also has had four 1st place wins,including 1st place in her class,
2006 AGS Nationals.

Ace's half sister, on his sire's side, GCH/ARMCH Agape Oaks Oreo 5*D 2*M 'E'
was selected as the 2011 ANDDA Total Performer

Another of Ace's 1/2 sisters on his sire's side and his dam's half-sister, Agape Oaks Fire Hazard 1*D 2*M AR,
tied the all time AGS record for a Nigerian on one day milk test, milking an incredible
7.0 lbs on 3/2/10. Hazard wrapped up 2010 as #2 on the AGS list of One Day Milk Test
Award winners.

We are tickled to have a buck with such a wonderful milking pedigree. He
is very dairy, yet shows beautiful muscularity. He has straight legs with
tight toes, flat-wide ribbing and good width across the chest. He has a very gentle face &
kind, soft eyes. It is difficult to get a good current photo of Ace now that the weather is
cooler and he's wearing his winter coat. Everytime I bring out the camera he puffs up like
a polar bear, even if it's a warm day! Well, there's that AND the fact that he wants
to be right beside me, not setting up and showing off a few feet away.

both of Desert Moon's sons have his excellent stature and wonderful rear end
Hootie has the image of an owl embossed in white on his left side while
in full coat. I haven't clipped him, yet to see if it is the same while clipped
While Hootie is a combination of 4 animals that we currently own and can't imagine
ever selling, he is such well put together buck that we're retaining him as a herdsire.
Hootie is a wonderful dairy buck, slightly uphill topline with a WIDE rear end. He stands
on strong straight feet and legs, and has that "look at me" attitude that makes him stand out.

His dam, Renata, is a wonderful young doe with a very nice 12 month old first freshening udder
feeding a single kid. Everyone is so pleased with how well Renata has turned out that we repeated
her breeding for reserved siblings in 2012 and plan to repeat the breeding yet again. Renata should
easily earn her milking star. She was giving us 1.5 lbs or more at each milking as a 16 week first
freshener. We were not able to milk test in 2012 due scheduling issues with our tester and
a death in the family. We expect to be back on track with DHI testing when Renata freshens again.

Lots of wonderful milkers in this pedigree, and an ADGA Superior Genetics rated Granddam.
Another line breeding on Flat Rocks Firecracker +S +B, we have retained his sister, Celeste.
We really like the way his dams udder is holding up after 6 years and 5 kiddings, and we adore his
dam's temperament and eagerness to be milked. We especially like the foreudder extension and blending
on his dam. Comet's dam had suffered a birth injury to her neck and was a small doe (19"), but the
genetics are there, his dam's twin twin, Agape Oaks FC Mary Todd, is average sized, with the same
wonderful udder, and temperament as Comet & Celeste's Dam, Shine On.

Comet is the absolute sweetest boy! He has wonderful confirmation, a long
dairy body and neck and excellent top line with straight feet and legs.
