Bramblestone Cal Gandolf
Gandolf is a great looking polled buckling born and retained on Bramblestone Farm. His grand dams (SG ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D and 2*M AR Wildwind Farm R Jewel Box 2*D) and dam (3*M Bramblestone Charm Box) are all tremendous milk producers with beautiful conformation and mammary systems.
I’m really liking the way Gandolf is looking, he’s maturing into a conformationally correct and handsome buck. It also appears that he’s going to remain well below the height requirement for bucks. If he passes his grand dams udders onto his daughters too, I’m going to be very happy with him.
In his first linear appraisal as a 1-year old, Gandolf scored an 82. That’s pretty good for a year-old buck, particularly as the appraiser thought he was too “feminine” looking. I think he looks great and it’s the more “feminine” looking bucks that have produced our most awesome looking does!

Old Mountain Farm Springloaded
Another handsome Old Mountain Farm buckling joined Bramble-stone Farm in the summer of 2016.
As usual with the OMF goats, he brings exciting genetics to our herd. He’s looking very long, refined, and conformationally correct. He scored 83 in his first linear appraisal as a 1-year old and went up to 85 (+VV) as a 2- year old.
In addition to his great conformation and dairy character, his dam and grand dams have incredible looking udders, and almost all of them have earned their Advanced Registry milk production stars. I just love the lines of Old Mountain Farm goats!

*B Bramblestone CQ Sandstone
Sandstone is another polled buckling born and retained on Bramblestone Farm. His sire *B CH Celtic Quinn was the first Bramblestone Farm buck to earn permanent champion status so we expect good things from Sandstone.
He has an awesome pedigree and brings together several of the favorite bloodlines on the farm.

*B Bramblestone CQ Tiger Tea
Tiger Tea is another polled son of our first homebred champion buck *B CH Bramblestone Celtic Quinn and one of my favorite does 4*M Bramblestone Sun Tea 4*D.
He’s certainly a colorful guy and very friendly too.

*B Bramblestone Keenan Quinn
Keenan is another polled buck that we retained and is the full brother to our first champion buck (*B CH Bramblestone Celtic Quinn).
We were very fortunate to have the opportunity to repeat the breeding that produced Celtic and we hope that Keenan does similarly well in the show ring.
He’s certainly a handsome and friendly guy!

Copper is the first of Old Mountain Farm Springloaded (above) sons to be retained on the farm and we’re impressed with how he’s developing. He’s got beautiful rear leg angulation, long length, good front legs and a nice topline.
His dam (3* M Bramblestone Amethyst *D) has a fantastic udder and makes lots of milk so he should make a good herdsire.
