We are well aware that unicorns don't exist in the goat world, but there are a special few that might come close. For the last few years we have been determined to source our next herd sire from a specific, and very special doe. So when our good friend, Jill, at Sinai Thunder Farm, informed us that SGCH Wood Bridge Farm Peridot had quints in October, and four of them were bucklings, we were absolutely thrilled! 

To say we are excited to bring Hanukkah into the herd would be an enormous understatement. Don't let the flashy exterior of this buckling fool you. This young buck promises to be a true powerhouse of both production, and dairy type. Han's pedigree is stacked to the rafters with generations of breed leaders, Elite, and Superior Genetics ancestors.

Hanukkah's dam, Peridot, only improves with age. She has placed in the national top ten lists for production, with both ADGA and AGS. She has a stunning and capacious udder, with beautiful fore udder extension, gorgeous attachments, rear udder height, and width. Her top line is sheer perfection, and she has a beautiful wide and level rump, with a permanent appraisal score of EEEE 91, including E trait scores in rump, rear legs, and back.

Exodus, Han's sire, is an exciting young buck sired by none other than SG Cedar View Olivero, a son of Elite doe SGCH Cedar View Isabella. Olivero is a Superior Genetics, Elite sire, with numerous daughters that have readily produced in excess of 1000 lbs as first fresheners, seven of whom have already earned their Superior Genetics designations. There is no question that Olivero is demonstrating that he is passing his own dam's production forward. Olivero, as a yearling, scored E in head, shoulder assembly, and rear legs.

Exodus' dam, SG Kaapio Acres HH Redemption, is an Elite doe, and multi-year Top Ten doe, with a permanent appraisal score of VEEE 90, including the ever-coveted 'E' in rump.

Hanukkah himself is an angular, long and level buck, standing on strong, straight feet and legs, with a beautiful level topline. This handsome buckling has some very big hooves to fill, and we have little doubt he will make you proud, Jill. Thank you, dear friend, for entrusting handsome Hanukkah to us! Watch for Han to be used extensively during our 2019-2020 season.
