ds: Flat Rocks Firecracker +S +B dd: Flat Rocks Twinkle Little Star *D
kidded 3-12-11, quadruplets, 3 bucks and a doe


Pizzazz is a very dairy, elegant doe from Agape Oaks. She
competed at ADGA Nationals in 2010 and placed 8th in her division
despite her failure to eat, drink, or cooperate in general.

Pizzazz's first freshening (2008) DHI stats were: 274 DIM 500 LB 7.2% BF 4.2 % Pro
during her second lactation she officially produced 420 lbs in 174 days.
Two weeks into her 6th lactation now, she produced 4.4 lbs on unofficial test.
Pizzazz needed one more win in the show ring (unrestricted leg)to earn a permanent
champion title when we got her. Her show wins include 2x Reserve Grand Champion
2010 AGPA Quad Show, ADGA Jr Grand Champion AOP at 2007 Amarillo Tri-State Fair
We have not shown our goats due to personal issues that limit our time away from home.

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.
Tiramisu's 2012 LA Score was VEVV 88, the higest score given to a first freshener.
As a 7 year old, Pizzazz's udder is nicer than it ever was, her attachments
are holding up high and tight and she has more capacity than ever and it's
still butter soft. She is an excellent mother and has so a wonderful, easy going
Personality. Pizzazz and her buddy Hope have truly spoiled me in the temperament
department.

Hope is a well balanced, strong yet elegant dairy doe from Agape Oaks. She
competed at ADGA Nationals in 2010 and placed 2nd for Best Udder and placing
3rd overall. Hope's 1st freshening DHI stats were: 305 DIM 675 LB 5.0% BF 4.3% Pro
during her second lactation she officially produced 270 lbs in the first 83 days.
As a 2-week fresh 7 year old, Hope produced 5.1 lbs on unofficial test
We love Hope's proud stature and her extroverted friendly nature.
Hope is 7 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 had mastitis in 2013, and is slightly uneven this year, her left side not filling out
as well as the right, but we have started already seen improvement just 2 months into the lactation.
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

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.

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. Opal has a
wonderful udder well attached udder with a nice fore extension and extraordinary
side extensions. I hadn't clipped her udder in the photos above (the clippers scare her)
but you can see how far down those attachments cme down on each side, socking that
capacious udder tight up into her escutcheon. Opal is social and fiendly with people,
but a bit shy in the herd. She is ab absolutely pleasure to work with.

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



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.

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 the owl is the same when 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 have used him as a herdsire too.
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, was a long dairy doe, wide through the hips with a wonderful high and tightly socked on
udder. Nice udders run in that line, his dam's dam had the #2 udder at 2010 ADGA nationals, but what
I really liked most about Renata was her wonderful square rear leg set. What I didn't like about Renata
was the way she would hyper extend when standing on the milkstand, usually standing with her left rear leg
extremely far outward and back, she only stood this way on the milkstand. I use a machine to milk and I
always felt like she was stretching herself out to accomodate the lines and inflations, or perhaps
she was uncomfortable with them. I could push her forward, but she would push those legs back every
time, and that could not be good for her back. I sold Renata someone who wanted to dam raise and handmilk.
