Reserve Grand Champion Wether Doe – 2022 Arizona National
Shown by Kaylie Stone – Bred by Stone Livestock
“Penny” as we call her is BTW Smacktalk X Rhiannon ( She Said Next X XXL). Rhiannon is our lead Donor and was Reserve Middleweight Doe at AZ Nationals in 2019 herself. Penny is a flush mate to our keeper buck “Talkin Kinky”.
How did you get involved in the industry?
Stacey was an Ag Teacher and Tracy grew up showing lambs. We became involved in the industry when our daughter, Kaylie, began showing goats. Toward the end of her show career we began to put more emphasis on the breeding side of things.
What is one of the most memorable events from your time as a breeder?
This win at Phoenix is our most memorable win not only because it was our first National win, but it was also Kaylie’s last show!
What do you think has pushed your program forward over the years?
Our herd mainly consists of Blue Team genetics. We have had a close relationship with Jamie & his dad, John Carl for many years. While our number of females is small we utilize embryo transfer and A.I. to help maximize our results. We work closely with KNT Farms, which is a partnership between Kaylie and her Grandmother.
What is your favorite part about raising goats?
We enjoy several aspects. The much anticipated kidding season is always exciting but seeing exhibitors with our goats in the show ring probably tops it all!
