Mom of 3 of our grandchildren. Makenna Grace, 11 years old, Hudson
Chase, 9 years old and Hazel Bennett 3 years old. Makenna is my
constant weekend companion! She is a great traveling goat show girl
which I am thrilled about!!
Dylan - Laura and
Dylan have given us a beautiful granddaughter, Olivia, 3 years
old and one of the newest additions, Barrett John! Barn builder, welder, hay stacker, designer and welder for goat
trailer, etc. He has been very helpful with large projects on the
farm including a lot of hard work on the new barn!!! More busy now
than ever but can always be depended on when I call and need him.
Very cute and strong besides!! He has a house just over 2 miles
Lauren - Lauren and Chase, of
course, blessed us with our THIRD, FOURTH and FIFTH grandchildren!
Their daughter, Laney Rose, 9 years old, is a very bright spot in my
life and LOVES every animal on the farm! The 7 year old twins, Elsie
and Wade, are amazing and
they are such delightful little kids! This group lives in Flagstaff
and we manage to see them quite often in spite of that!!
Cassidi - Cassidi and Nick
have Eliza, 5 years old and
Penelope, 3 years old, and the other newest addition, Dean Arthur.
It is hard for both of them to be working, but with her flexible
schedule and their team approach to parenting they are all doing
great! We sure do love that they live just 1 1/2 miles away!
||Always dreamed of having a mountain to run the
goats up and down. Prerequisite for purchasing this
property much to my family's chagrin! The swirling sun
in the name is a symbol for a strong woman and the goats
are golden just because they are! The mountain and the
cactus are the epitome of Sir Echo Farm here in the
Sonoran Desert. Designed by Denise Kindall, my friend.
She climbed the mountain with us and was inspired to
give us this beautiful logo.
The Barn -
A true labor of love and a gift from my entire
family. A goat girl's dream come true. Most grateful
appreciation to all the boys who are extended family and friends
of my kids, who have over the years made all my dreams come
true. From the trees not being disturbed during the building, to
the beautiful loft where I sleep during kidding season, hot and
cold running water in a heated and air conditioned milk room,
magnificent feeders, and a picture window made from a sliding
glass door at the top of the west end of the barn so that my
view of the mountains from the loft was not disturbed!! Added a
new 60 x 40 barn this year that is the best thing we have done
for ourselves out in the farm area of the house! It houses all
vehicles and hay and includes a 15 X 40 workshop!!!
And of course the goats -
I am most grateful to Leta Davis and Colleen Monahan for my
start in my Oberhasli herd. Without those animals I would never
be having the breeding program I have today. Thanks go also to
Lorrie Echols, Jean White, Chris Alexander, Kristin Loughlin,
Suzanne Strong, On*Oak*Hill and the Swiss Breeders for sharing
their genetics through the wonderful world of AI.
