Thanks to Karin Reyna, who collected Deja Vu in his prime, we have his son as our current senior herdsire. He's an eye-catching black with white markings, long bodied, very tall and sharp, and so like his sire we've nicknamed him "DV". At age 7, he has developed the body capacity to go with his long legs and back. He's exceptionally flat over the rump, and still standing on strong feet and legs. Hes milking daughter Nouvelle is a heavy milker, and his newest daughters Pagoda and Pergola (dam: Perilla) and Provence (dam: Pudi) are sharp, stylish, and have inherited their sire's long legs and body. Both DV's dam and granddam appraised VG88. DV is half brother to Shari Reyna's lineup of 90 plus does.
Doogie is our brand-new full-blood Boer buck! (Joint ownership with Zen Split Hoof) We're thrilled to have him, he's extremely stocky, very gentle, and just a totally lovely boy. We'll be breeding him to a number of does this year, and should have some very nice crossbred doe kids available next spring. We don't have registraion papers on him, but he's out of Dr. Cary Heyward's outstanding Lynx Hollow herd. We'll get a photo up soon!
++*B Sunshine Stella's Vicar (AR34, CL27)Deja Vu's sire is one of the top bucks of the breed, siring National Show winning senior get does. Juana was a stylish doe with a beautiful mammary system; she classified FS 86 (V E V +). Deja Vu won two Best in Show awards, although he was never shown much. He was long bodied, "walked uphill", had excellent set to the rear legs, a level topline and a wide, powerful front end. His daughters have shown uniformly attractive mammary systems with high, wide tight rear attachment, shapely teats, and lots of foreudder extension. Several daughters in the Mt. Zion herd have shown very well, placing GCH at various shows and type evaluating EX. Greene Herb Deja Thoris was GCH and Best of Breed at the 1995 Emerald Dairy Goat Association show, one of only two she attended as a mature doe. Deja Vu is now deceased, but will be available through AI for many years .
