Changes

Sire: SGCH One-More Arizona Vision

Dam: GCH Rock-Point Hosannas Absolution

DOB: 2/27/11 FS 92EEEE @06-02   PTI21: 98 PTI12: 213 ETA21: -35 ETA12: 23

Changes is the herd matriarch and a farm favorite. She's passed on her strength and depth to her progeny as well as her even temperament and sweet personality. Her 2013 AI outcross breeding to SG Des-Ruhigestelle Elander resulted in triplet does, two of which remain on the farm today. Those daughters, Heat Wave and Weather, have set the standard for our Saanen herd. In 2015 she had a difficult kidding that resulted in a mild bout of mastitis and her lifetime production totals reflects it.


Weather

Sire: Des-Ruhigestelle Elander

Dam: SGCH Spinning Spider AV Changes

DOB: 3/11/14  FS 92VEEE @05-04   PTI21: 98 PTI12: 213 ETA21: -35 ETA12: 23

Weather is littermate to Heat Wave and has kept up with or surpassed her sister every step of the way. Productive and extremely correct, Weather has scored 92 three years in a row, produced daughters like Ellie and sons like JohnnyThunder, and had a lactation over 4500 lbs. She's just as much of a total performer as her sister. Unfortunately uneven since a teat injury in 2017, Weather has nothing to prove here. She's done it all and is one of our favorite does.

 


Heat Wave

Sire: Des-Ruhigestelle Elander

Dam: SGCH Spinning Spider AV Changes

DOB: 3/11/14  FS 92EEEE @05-04   PTI21: 204 PTI12: 233 ETA21: 67 ETA12: 112

Heat Wave is the farm favorite for many reasons. She's got her dam's calm demeanor and loving personality. We believe this is one of the reasons she's been able to handle the stress of travel/showing along with life on our commercial dairy while effortlessly maintaining extraordinary production. She is our top ten, 92EEEE, 2018 ADGA National Show Total Performer doe and dam of the high selling Saanen buck at the 2018 Spotlight Sale. Her Breed Leader lactation of 5210 lbs has been part of a lifetime production (to date) of 1493 days in milk 21,080 lbs of milk, 619 BF and 619P.  She accomplishes all this with an extremely correct general appearance that supports her productive mammary system. She has incredible depth and width, combined with an angular dairy frame. Her impact on our herd and others can be felt in the very consistent sons and daughters she has produced. They all exhibit her beautiful front end and length of bone as well as her high, wide rear udder and near ideal teat placement.

Ritz

Sire: Des-Ruhigestelle Elander

Dam: Jug-Tavern's D. Edelweiss

DOB: 3/11/14  FS 91VEEE @05-04   PTI21: 201 PTI12: 199 ETA21: 108 ETA12: 122

Ritz is one of a set of triplet does from an AI of Edelweiss to Des-Ruhigestelle Elander. Sharing the high, wide rear udder of her dam, she also shows strength and a tremendous will to milk. With several milk throughs (one carrying a pregnancy but with no dry off) and a current lifetime of 1624 days in milk, 18,630 lbs of milk, 580 BF, and 523 P; Ritz proves she can milk! 


Tramp

SG Spinning Spider Lady's A Tramp
SG Spinning Spider Lady's A Tramp

Sire: Des-Ruhigestelle Elander

Dam: Jug-Tavern's D. Edelweiss

DOB: 3/11/14  FS 91VEEE @05-04  PTI21: 122 PTI12: 148 ETA21: 108 ETA12: 122


Summertime

Sire: Tempo Passa Win-Catchin' On

Dam: SGCH Spinning Spider EL Heat Wave

DOB: 4/7/15  FS 91VEEE @04-03  PTI21: 118 PTI12: 125 ETA21: 71 ETA12: 75

Our first Heat Wave daughter, Summertime has somehow turned into one of the "old" ladies now at 5 years old. With her E shoulders and back, she's always been a strong part of our show string. She's one of 4 does that managed to end last year's show season with 2 CH legs apiece. Summertime's strongest category has always been her udder, which is similar to her mother's, with greater extension and width of fore udder to go with the strength of medial and rear that Heat Wave exhibits.


Leggy Blonde

Sire: Tempo Passa Win-Catchin' On

Dam: SG Spinning Spider LA Woman

DOB: 2/28/15  FS 90VVEE @03-06  PTI21: 92 PTI12: 123 ETA21: 34 ETA12: 51

Leggy Blonde holds a place in our hearts as a doe who shows true Saanen temperament. She showed, milked and appraised well as a yearling and we had high hopes for her future show career. Summer of 2017 she met with an unfortunate accident, losing her right eye. For a doe on a commercial dairy (set on mountainous terrain) that has to negotiate within a large herd, we were worried she would have trouble adapting. We found the opposite to be true. She never missed a beat. Her milk test record immediately after the accident found her to be only slightly off her projected milk. She finished off her lactation at 283 DIM, 2761 lbs milk, 92 fat (3.3%) and 85 lbs protein (3.1%). Pictured here as a yearling, we have not gotten Leggy "spiffed up" for pictures since her accident.


Tanya

Sire: Tempo Passa Catch the Wave

Dam: SGCH Des-Ruhigestelle Elenya

DOB: 3/24/15  FS 90VEVE @04-04  PTI21: 28 PTI12: 47 ETA21: 0 ETA12: -4

Tanya is one of those impulse buys that I haven't ever regretted. Incredibly long and level, with her high head and imperious nature, Tanya certainly makes her presence known here. Daughter of Elenya, she looks more like her mother every day. We are particularly excited about the three yearling daughters we have out of her sired by Honky Tonkin.


Ellie

Sire: Vineyard View Kojack Trident

Dam: SGCH Spinning Spider Stormy Weather

DOB: 3/10/16  FS 92EEEE @ 03-04   PTI21: 148 PTI12: 184 ETA21: 50 ETA12: 71

Ellie doesn't need much introduction in our herd. After her win in the 2 year old class at the 2018 Nationals, shes gone on to win BIS 7 times in her young show career. With her incredible general appearance (she glides around the barn and the show ring) and with her stunningly productive and shapely udder, there's no question why. She's longer with a more level topline, more correct in the front end, stronger on her feet and legs, and has one of the better rear udders in the herd. Except for her tendency to not give us doe kids, there's not much I would change about her! We are very excited to see what her 2019 AI son by Des-Ruhigestelle SocialClimber can do for our herd. We will be using him significantly this fall. Ellie had an extremely rough 2020 kidding so we are grateful she's still with us and hope we can bring her back into the show ring in 2021.


Haze

Sire: Vineyard View Kojack Trident

Dam: SGCH Spinning Spider EL Heat Wave

DOB: 2/15/16  FS 91VEEE @03-05  PTI21: 137 PTI12: 134 ETA12: 64 ETA21: 67

Possibly my (Cullen's) favorite Heat Wave daughter, Haze is the "little" engine that could. More "moderately" sized (only 31.5 inches to sister Foxy's 33.5 inches), Haze is one of the most productive does in the herd, second only to her mother and her aunts. She does this while moving around a beautifully shaped udder with ease. Haze has quite the presence on the scorecard, showing angularity and strength, width and depth, along with balance and productivity. I might be smitten.


Foxy

SIre: Vineyard View Kojack Trident

Dam: SGCH Spinning Spider EL Heat Wave

DOB: 2/15/16  FS 90VEEE @03-05   PTI21: 56 PTI12: 105 ETA21: 64 ETA12: 67

Littermate to Honky Tonkin and Purple Haze, Foxy has always been a farm favorite. With her massive scale and strength of bone, she certainly stands out in the show ring. While her udder is as beautifully shaped as her mother and sisters, her production reflects having been a precocious dry yearling with mild mastitis.


Evangeline

Sire: Tempo Passa Win-Catchin' On

Dam: Spinning Spider Gates of Eden

DOB: 3/5/16   FS 91EEEE @03-04   PTI21: 25 PTI12: 78 ETA21: -24 ETA12: -5

One of several Win-Catchin' On daughters in the herd, Evangeline has always caught our eye with her beautiful general appearance and body capacity. Deep and wide with a lovely topline, she's also got one of the strongest fore udders in the herd. In our opinion, the only reason she's not finished is because of the strength of competition with does in her age bracket in our herd. Her time will come!


Lyresto

Sire: Vineyard View Kojack Trident

Dam: SG Spinning Spider CO Lucille

DOB: 4/14/17   FS 88+VVE @01-04 (yearling ff score)   PTI21: 101 PTI12: 94 ETA21: 1 ETA12: -3

A fancy yearling in 2018, Lyresto has matured into a productive and stylish 3 year old. With her elegant dairy frame supporting her productive mammary system, Lyresto is a favorite in the parlor and the show ring.


Serenade

Sire: Vineyard View Kojack Trident

Dam: SG Spinning Spider OC Syncopate

DOB: 2/15/17   FS 87VVVE @02-05   PTI21:-9 PTI12: -26 ETA21: 1 ETA12: -9

Serenade is another highly productive Trident daughter. Angular and sharp with an E mammary, she's a doe we're happy to give time to mature.


Vespers

Sire: GCH Noble-Springs SET Anubis

Dam: SGCH Spinning Spider HZ Providence

DOB: 3/5/17  FS 88VEVE @02-04 PTI21: -13 PTI12: 4 ETA21: -32 ETA12: -15

Vespers is my only daughter out of Providence and looks more like her mom every day. She's well balanced with a level topline and correct front end. She's a farm favorite for her sweet, easy-going personality and penchant for giving kisses.


Juliette

Sire: Spinning Spider Honky Tonkin

Dam: SGCH Spinning Spider HW Praise

DOB 4/14/17   FS 86VVVV @01-04 (yearling ff score)   PTI21: 20  PTI12: 87

Juliette is the last daughter of SGCH Spinning Spider HW Praise, one of my favorite showmanship does. Honky Tonkin took Praise's correct general appearance and well attached udder and added upstandingness and productivity. Juliette is incredibly correct and stylish with an udder very reminiscent of her mother.


Chain Reaction

Sire: Spinning Spider Honky Tonkin

Dam: Spinning Spider OC Changeling

DOB 2/13/17   FS 88VEVV @02-05 (ff score)   PTI21: 26 PTI12: 57

Sharp and upstanding with angularity and strength to her rear legs, Chain Reaction is a throwback to some of our favorite foundation lines from the One-More herd. Sired by Honky Tonkin', we see the added productivity and type along with the beautiful front end assembly that Tonk consistently throws.


Two Year Olds:

Mainline

Sire: Spinning Spider Honky Tonkin

Dam: Spinning Spider ContraryMary

DOB: 3/7/18  FS 86VVVV @01-04  PTI21: 11 PTI12: 49

Smoothly blended in the front end with a long, level topline and correct feet and legs, Mainline also has an udder that's welded onto her body. She's yet another Honky Tonkin daughter that shows tremendous promise.


Chatelaine

Sire: Spinning Spider Pressure Drop

Dam: SG Spinning Spider HT Purple Haze

DOB: 3/10/18 FS 84VV++ @01-04 (yearling ff score) PTI21: 65 PTI12: 54

Chatelaine is one of only a couple of Pressure Drop daughters born before we lost him, but oh is she exciting! Linebred on Heat Wave, she demonstrates the extreme length and smoothness of her grandmother combined with a more level topline and longer fore udder. She will be one to watch in the show ring next year.


Hanky Panky

Sire: Tempo Passa Etain

Dam: SGCH Spinning Spider EL Heat Wave

DOB: 3/27/18

Hanky Panky reminds me more and more of her mother as a young doe. Limo long with the beautiful rear udder and teat placement that Heat Wave has, when they come into the parlor side by side it's like seeing double. While she certainly needs time to grow up and mature, I can't wait to see what this doe does in the future.


Lark

Sire: Spinning Spider Honky Tonkin

Dam: SG Spinning Spider C Leggy Blonde

DOB: 3/21/18 

Elegant and reminiscent of her mother as a young doe, Lark is a very promising 2 year old first freshener. High and wide in the rear, with width and extension to the fore, she's another young doe to watch.


Starstruck

Sire: GCH Noble-Springs SET Anubis

Dam: SG Spinning Spider Got That Swing

DOB: 3/26/18  FS 87+VVE @01-04   PTI21: 42 PTI12: 43 ETA21: 19 ETA12: -6

Our favorite milking yearling last year, Starstruck has turned into a deep, productive and correct second freshener. We particularly appreciate the width of rear udder that she shows as well as the soundness of her general appearance.


Lola

Sire: Tempo Passa Etain

Dam: SGCH Spinning Spider AV Changes

DOB: 4/7/18

Maternal half sister to Heat Wave and Weather, Lola already exhibits the same strength of bone and correct general appearance of her half sisters. While a bout of dry yearling mastitis left her slightly uneven, we still feel she shows tremendous promise.


Strange Angel

Sire: Spinning Spider Pressure Drop

Dam: SG Spinning Spider LT Lyresto

DOB: 4/24/18

Striking last year as a dry yearling, StrangeAngel managed to freshen with a beautiful udder to match her body. We love the correctness over the topline she shows with a deep, smooth front end and a lovely set to her rear legs. Her udder is high and wide to the rear, with extension and width to the fore and a medial that holds it just where we want it.


Yearlings:

Posh

Sire: Spinning Spider Honky Tonkin

Dam: GCH Tempo Passa Elentanya

DOB: 1/25/19 

Yet another exciting Honky Tonkin daughter, Posh is our first fresh Elentanya daughter. Beautifully sharp and balanced, Posh also has a charmingly friendly personality to go with her general appearance and production. My only regret is she won't see a show ring or an appraisal this year.


Kashmir

Sire: Spinning Spider JohnnyThunder

Dam: SG Spinning Spider HT Purple Haze

DOB: 2/14/19

An exciting young doe, Kashmir already shows great width and capacity of fore udder and teat placement inherited from her dam line.


Perfect Storm

Sire: Des-Ruhigestelle Winnemucca

Dam: SGCH Spinning Spider EL Heat Wave

DOB: 2/25/19  ETA21: 50 ETA12: 54

An incredibly exciting AI cross, Perfect Storm highlights the length and dairyness of her mother. With her extremely correct feet and legs and the perfect amount of maturity for a yearling, I can't wait to see how she grows up.


Lyfe

Sire: Spinning Spider Wayward Son

Dam: SG Spinning Spider Lyresto

DOB:3/21/19  

Lyfe looks so much like her mother as a young doe, it's startling. She shows the same elegant high headedness and smooth general appearance. She also shares her mother's tendency towards working hard and not carrying excess weight.
