2022-2023 Breeding Chart
Currently available kids:
Caprice Acres PGM Queenie – cou clair doeling – Reduced price to 400.00
Caprice Acres PGM Nitro – sundgau buckling – Reduced price to 400.00
American Alpine littermates, born 3/12/23
Dam: SG Caprice Acres Glitterati 2*M EX91
Sire: Pleasant-Grove RR Mathias VG88 *ELITE*.
Glitterati, aka “Syd” kidded with triplets this year as a 10 year old 9th lactation. She still looks fantastic for her age, and is again cranking milk this lactation. Aging like fine wine, Syd is just lovely to look at on the milk stand, just standing around in the pen, and has always impressed appraisers with her general appearance. I may be silly to not keep either of these, but as Syd ages I am making more effort to phase out the Americans. I don’t plan to keep any American kids in 2023, but I do have a granddaughter and a daughter from 2022 that are both extremely fantastic does who will be sticking around to keep the American lines going with no end in sight. See half sister, Absinthe and maternal granddaughter of Glitterati, Europa.
Caprice Acres PGM Minerva – chamoisee doe – Reduced price to 400.00
French Alpine doeling born 3/12/23
Dam: Caprice Acres Irish Red 3*M EX90
SIRE: Pleasant-Grove Mathias VG88 *ELITE*
Red was slow to mature with some setbacks in her first couple lactations. This year she has kidded with triplets and LOOK OUT! She appraised well in 2022 with just a single buck kid and had an excellent lactation, so I am very much looking forward to 2023 appraisal and official test. I am keeping her littermate sister, Caprice Acres PGM Lucretia. Their littermate brother also has gone to be a herdsire.
Caprice Acres PGM Arletta – cou clair doe – 300.00
French Alpine doeling born 3/12/23
Dam: Caprice Acres Legacy’s Brazen
SIRE: Pleasant-Grove RR Mathias VG88 *ELITE*
Brazen is milking very hard again this year. I am keeping her littermate sister, Caprice Acres PGM Lovinia, and will perhaps be replacing Brazen with her daughter.
Caprice Acres PGM Harper – Solid Black doeling – Reduced price to 300.00
American Alpine born 4/8/2023
Dam: Caprice Acres CAJ Europa
SIRE: Pleasant-Grove RR Mathias VG88 *ELITE*
Europa is living up to her pedigree. I have no complaints over her conformation, and her udder is very well attached and has a pleasing globular shape. I would estimate that I induced her several days before she would have naturally kidded, I suspect she would have gone several days overdue honestly. She is therefore slowly coming into milk, but she is doing well at just a few days fresh. In a year I have some of the absolute best yearlings I’ve probably ever bred, Europa is looking like she is putting up stiff competition for the best of the bunch. Currently resisting the urge to keep her daughter despite solid black being my absolute least favorite color alpine. 😉 A good goat isn’t ever the wrong color however.
Sire to all available kids 2023:
Pleasant-Grove RR Mathias
Sire Pedigree for all ’23 kids for sale:
Sire to all 2023 kids that are available for sale. I believe Mathias is pending SG and probably other milk production awards, just awaiting ADGA recognition… Mathias has done well improving teat placement and general udder structure.
Shipping available! Semen marketed with Blue Mountain Genetics may also be delivered on their route yearly. If Nationals is close enough to drive to, I can also deliver as I often attend with my tank just to observe/pick up semen/ogle beautiful animals.
I will consider and respond to any inquiries about my bucks I have listed as AI sires. Semen that I have purchased is of limited resale availability – some I cannot part with, while other bucks I would happily part with, so please inquire! I am more willing to part with bucks I’ve owned and had collected personally, as I have the largest quantities available on them, more than I ever plan on using. I STRONGLY prefer they go to herds on performance programs, however, as it will help me as well in that case. All of them have DNA on file, Casein tested, and their collections on file as promptly as possible after collection. CLICK ON THEIR NAMES TO GO TO THEIR PAGES FOR MORE INFO! These boys include:
Sunrising Charmer Weizenbock *B FRENCH 03-06 VVE 88 Casein E/F
2016 Two Tone Chamoise
This guy likes to improve rumps thanks to his father, Charmer. He produces more refined, dairy daughters but while still improving body capacity. He is the sire to our Caprice Acres Irish Red 3*M EX90. While not deceased, we no longer own him. Moderate quantity available. Straws 20.00 ea
Caprice Acres Disco Volante *B FRENCH 02-03 +V+ 84 Casein B/F
2014 Lavender Cou Clair
Really wish this buck hadn’t passed away so young, as he is littermate to SG Caprice Acres Elise 2*M EX90, the foundation of my entire French herd. I believe he had so much potential and his final appraisal score did not do him justice IMO. Thankfully he was collected prior to his death! LIMITED QUANTITY. Straws 15.00 ea
Giesler’s Sharp Dressed Man FRENCH 05-03 VEE 89 Casein F/F
2011 Cou Clair
“Calix” or “The Big Stink” as he was known has a special place in our hearts. He has one beautiful EX90 daughter out of very few appraised, the lovely SG QMF Drops of Jupiter in the Quarter – Mile herd. Another daughter owned by Hooligan’s Farm, Caprice Acres Adelise, VG89. Very limited quantity available. Straws 20.00 ea.
Pleasant-Grove RR Mathias *ELITE* – FRENCH 04-08 VEV 88 Casein A/E
2018 Dark chamoise
Willing to part with a few more straws, and was collected both 2020 and 2021 so we have a reasonable inventory. Has produced rare teat defects. This guy improves general appearance, front ends, and udders in general. His daughters are very productive. Best buck purchase for improving across the board we could have possibly made. 10/300.
Caprice Acres Wahoo Huzzah *B – AMERICAN Casein E/F
2020 Sundgau Cou Noir
A rare American alpine buck we had collected. This guy is out of our SG Caprice Acres Glitterati 2*M EX91 and sired by a high production older buck from very famous alpine historic lines (Sodium Oaks). His littermate sister was not nearly as conformationally correct unfortunately, but she had one of the best foreudders I’ve ever bred. Do not breed to posty legged does. Willing to part with 5-10 straws. 15.00 ea.
Caprice Acres PGM Dark Roast – FRENCH Casein E/F
2020 Solid Chocolate (dilute)
Used a lot by Quarter – Mile in 2020 and she loved all the kids so much she kept a ton of em! Note of caution, he has thrown extra teats – mostly with the same lines his sire Mathias has had problems with, especially when inbreeding. He was gifted to my good friend Tammy McCloe in late 2020 so thankful he is still close and seeing some use as he is highly related to most of my French being that he is an Elise son and sired by Mathias. QMF (Heather Quick at Quarter Mile Farms) Has several fresh daughters and they are total knockouts excelling in udder structure especially teat placement. His fun funky color is quite unusual in alpines so that’s a fun cherry on top. Willing to part with a few straws. Straws 25.00ea
Caprice Acres Outback Brisbane *polled* FRENCH Casein B/01
2020 Cou Blanc
Bane’s sire had many productive daughters and conformationally very complementary to my doe, Red – which made this breeding a no-brainer even if he wasn’t Polled! Pleased with the outcome despite (or maybe because) he is a 0% inbreeding for my herd. I repeated the breeding 2021 and have a confirmed pregnancy, now just hoping for full sisters to join the herd! He has had rare teat defect kids but many more totally normal. He was collected 2020 and 2021, but is unfortunately sold out through Blue Mountain Genetics. Straws 25.00/straw
I raise livestock and do my absolute best to raise high quality, healthy animals.
All sales are final and I make no guarantees of ongoing health, performance, or progeny performance after animals leave my care under new ownership. While I will always offer healthy animals to the best of my ability – If you have concerns over quality or suspect an animal is not healthy at time of sale, do not purchase it.
Full/partial refund or replacement is an option for severe functional defects or infertility that are heritable in nature or innate (not acquired). This may include multiple teats or teat defects, severe bite problems, wry face etc. Impaired fertility would need to be verified by a veterinarian.
While I do wish to ‘do right’ by buyers, I also refuse to be taken advantage of especially for things that are outside of my control. If you have any concerns, please contact me asap. I cannot give treatment advice without a VCPR (veterinary client-patient relationship) but any potential help or replacement/refund indicated won’t be offered if I’m not aware of a problem!
