We have high expectations from this pairing for both milk and show qualities.  Both sides have strong milk & show lines  - Old Mountain Farm Hot Tea SG 3*M EEEV, Old Mountain Farm Nutmeg SGCH 2*M VVEV, Old Mountain Farm Tianna Quinn 4*M, Buttin' Heads Calligraphy 3*M +EEA, NC Promisedland Nemesis SG 2*M VEEE in addition to the strong buck genetics like Old Mountain Farm Quentinquinn CH *B, Bramblestone Celtic Quinn CH *B, NC Promisedland SS Hot Stuff SG ++*B, Old Mountain Farm Stag SG ++*B,

Ultrasound - Possible 3

Moon Spot Possible

2020 milk test revealed Kahlua is a top doe (A) after testing only 136 days in milk.  This year we paired Kahlua and Tea for a second time breeding as their first kids together have show a lot of promise for milking and for stature & form.  

Kahlua's 1st Freshening Udder

Their 2019 kid Faith on milk test at 140 days in milk was rated Above Average (B) in milk production. Their buckling Grant (inset) is a beautiful buckling and we think he'd do well in the ring and with linear appraisal when we can resume those activities.  It helps that both have strong pedigrees behind them like Buttin' Heads Calligraphy 3*M *D, Old Mountain Farm Hot Tea SG 3*M, Buttin' Heads Paperclip 2*M GCH, Old Mountain Farm Tianna Quinn 4*M, Old Mountain Farm Tianna Quinn 4*M, Old Mountain Farm Cernunnos +*B 89 VEV, Old Mountain Farm QuentinQuinn CH *B, and Old Mountain Farm Stag SG *B

Mitten Acres CQ Grant -  Kahlua & Tea's 2019 Buckling 

This pairing produced beautiful kids last year with nice even leg placement, straight topline and wide stance.  While Rosie was on milk test for 160 days, she was still nursing her two doelings which greatly affected Rosie's milking ability.  (It was very difficult for me with the serious injury I sustained on our farm and the inability to obtain medical care due to Covid 19 to milk and keep all of the kids separated while weaning the kids.) We retained both of the beautiful doelings from last years breeding they were so nice looking!

We are especially excited to see what Quianna delivers this year.  Last year, Quianna's first freshening, she delivered 4 doelings.  (We will be breeding her beautiful daughter Kendall later this season.) 

Quianna as a first freshener was rated a Top Doe (A) and earned her milk star at 180 days in milk which we were confident would be easily obtained with the strong genetics Quianna offers like Buttin' Heads GCH 2*M Paperclip VEEE, Buttin' Heads 3*M Calligraphy +EEA, Old Mountain Farm Tianna Quinn 4*M and complimented by Bramblestone Amethyst 3*M VVEV, Bramblestone Pal Ruby 2*M V+EA, and Old Mountain Farm Parti Favah VEEE on the doeling sides and enhanced by Old Mountain Darius Quinn *B, Old Mountain Field Mouse *B, Old Mountain Farm CH QuentinQuinn *B, Dragonfly HLJ Calvary *B AVV, Old Mountain Farm Springloaded, and Old Mountain Farm Stag SG ++*B VEE makes for an exciting possibility for both milk and show!

Possible Polled & Moon Spot

Faith was on milk test for only 140 days and was rated above average (B) in milk production.  We have chosen to breed Faith with Dusty to add some of the attributes dusty can add to Faith's strong milk lines background.
