Slick is a combination of great genetics from the Lakeshore, Hoanbu, and Wingwood herds. He is very sharp and refined and I feel he will compliment our wide-bodied, sturdy girls. I am particularly excited about Brandywine's upcoming kids from Slick. I think I might be looking at a future homebred herdsire from this combination. Both Slick's dam and his paternal granddam recorded "E" udders as 2 yr. old does so I am looking for great udders from his daughters! City Slicker is listed here for reference purposes, I used him heavily early in the 2016 breeding season. He was bred to many of my top does. After deciding to save his 2016 son from Brandywine, I offered him for sale and he has joined the herds of Stacy Adams and Shannon Kempter Little. I saved three daughters from the 2016 kid group, they are every bit as fancy as I expected and have topped their respective classes at the fall shows.

No show pictures for the bucks. I gave up showing bucks when I got past 60, so these handsome fellas will not be sporting any CH designations. The proof of their worthiness will have to lie with their daughters. I did manage to take some pretty good pictures this fall and I will also provide info and pics of their dams when available. I am proud and ever so thankful that we have enough genetic diversity in the herd after 25 years that I can safely use predominantly Chigger-Hill bred bucks. I have purchased top genetics over the years but I have found that sometimes you give up more than you get when bringing new genetics into the herd. I feel safest and most confident in using our own bucks when possible.
OK, I couldn't resist buying another outside junior buck and this one is a Connecticut Yankee! While watching the livestream of the 4-yr. old milker class from the 2018 ADGA National Show, I saw a beautiful black and white doe that was immediately pulled up by the judges. What a powerhouse doe with a gorgeous udder. As it happened she placed 7th, immediately behind 4-Ever-R's Ester. I was so impressed I had to find out her background. Hops N Lops Wysteria is an American Nubian. I don't care, American or not, she is the style of doe that Nubian breeders need to appreciate. I contacted her breeder Grace Toy. She had plans to breed Wysteria to new new buckling, Wingwood Farms Flying Ambition. Ambition is a direct son of the great Wingwood Farms Arista. I immediately put down a deposit for a kid. Wysteria came through and produced a doeling for Grace and a buckling for me. I love the extreme width and spring of rib on this guy and I am hoping he'll give me some udders like his dam and granddam!
This massive spotted buck is the gentlest of creatures! Thank goodness he is extremely gentle and easy to handle because when his head is erect it hits me at about shoulder level! He is a rather nondescript mass of spots but he does sire exceptional spotted color, both black and dark brown. He has excellent feet and legs and tremendous length and depth of body and no doubt weighs in at about 300 lbs. El- Capitan is the result of some of the best combined genetics from Lakeshore Nubians, Saada Nubians, and Chigger-Hill Nubians. Since I now have his grandson, he is enjoying himself with Michael and Cassey Ball and their great kids at 4B Nubians in Ennis, TX.

When I saw the Gillham's phenomenal doe Ester, I knew I wanted a buckling from this incredible doe. Appraised at EEEE 90 as a 2 yr. old and practically unbeatable in the show ring for the past two years. I was very excited to purchase her 2017 buckling, 4-Ever-R's Klassic Black Jack. Jack's sire traced back to Marshall Losey's champion doe, M Sagebrush Klass Act and to Saada Bearly Zimri. I used Jack for 2 years and have several doelings from him. After Chigger-Hill REDZ Harper had a gorgeous 2019 buckling from him, I felt I had what I needed to continue the type of conformation that Chigger-Hill goats are known for. That buckling is Chigger-Hill KBJ TopGun. I am so impressed by TopGun that I went back in the showring with him at the tender age of 5 months. He was Grand Champion Junior Nubian buck under all four judges at the GTDGA Big Buck Bonanza. I can't wait to use him on a few does this fall. This youngster combines the bloodlines of SGCH Chigger-Hill HW Chloe and SGCH 4-Ever-R's Ester!
These two twin brothers born to one of our foundation does, OK Corral Super Sophie (Superbuck genetics) made a tremendous impact on our herd. We used Goliath for over 13 years in our herd, he was just that conformationally correct that he could still breed does at an advanced age. In addition to being the foundation of the genetics of our present herd, he also made a strong contribution to Caroline Lawson's TLC Nubians herd being the grandsire of her wonderful CH TLC Sam's Belle Star. It is my one regret that I did not do more to promote Goliath. I was too involved with a full time career and raising my children at the time. Both Goliath and Hercules were a pair of great ones!
I was so surprised when the 2014 appraiser complimented my young Chigger-Hill bucks and so gratified to have everyone appraise VG even as yearlings! This beautiful fellow is a gorgeous dark mahogany red color with black mantle and trim. He is a combination of the genetics from our Buttercup Line of champion does and some of the top Nubian genetics available (Kastdemur's Temerity X J & R Spirit's Dakota Playboy). Much gratitude to Jim and Kathy Gillham of 4EverR's Nubians for providing a breeding to Kastdemur's Charismatictribute. We are truly blessed to own this beautiful young buck! H We have daughters that are sporting great bodies, superwide escutcheons, and excellent teat placement. Red Zone absolutely stamps his daughters with beautiful color and breed character. His 2016-2019 daughters are truly something to behold. I have already had a requests from two other breeders to purchase RZ, but I simply could not let him go. This guy is a herdbuilder!
NEWS FLASH: Both the 2017 doelings from Red Zone have already won their restricted legs at a very young age. He sired the 3rd Place Sr. Yearling Doeling at the 2017 ADGA National Show . His progeny won the Jr. Get-of-Sire class and were named Best Three Jr. Nubian Does at the OK State Fair in 2018 and 2019!

Lakeshore Genetics at it's best, Aim has had a tremendous influence on our herd during the past 6 years. Although he is now working in another herd here in TX, we have a number of daughters that are currently working in our herd. These gals have fantastic conformation, exquisite rear udders and great production and manners on the milk stand. All these daughters currently have at least one leg towards their permanent championship.
