Calvary came to Bramblestone Farm quite suddenly after I told my friend Cindy how much I’d like to own him. I think I caught her in a weak moment with too many bucks on hand, and she agreed to sell. I’d been watching Calvary for quite awhile (he’s polled and has an outstanding pedigree), so I didn’t hesitate. He’s not quite got the idea of photo shoots down – as you can tell from his photo below. He was not holding still for anything!
It’s difficult to find terrific polled herdsires, but he definitely qualifies. His dam has earned her milking stars, scored a 90 in linear appraisal, is a permanent champion, and has earned her Superior Genetics designation. Here’s a photo of that rather spectacular dam:

On both his dam and sire’s side, he’s the progeny of some of the most outstanding and influential Nigerian Dwarf goats in the country. We have now retained 4 of his daughters, one son, one grandson and one granddaughter. All are maturing beautifully, and I’m so happy that Calvary joined our herd.
His offspring exhibit beautiful conformation and great milk production, so they are all starting to earn milking stars, Grand Champion wins, and awesome linear appraisal scores!
