Cherie is a very tight breeding on my lines and she is absolutely stunning! We named her Cherie Amour after the song by Stevie Wonder, she is lovely as a summer day. She is full sister to Tenacity, who we retained last year, so we are over the moon to have the opportunity to retain Cherie as well! Since she was injured shortly after birth with two fractures in her spine (C7 and T13), we will assess her progress to see if she will be part of our breeding herd or a treasured pet within the herd. She has been progressing incredibly well and both fractures showed as healed at 4 weeks old instead of the 6 weeks that the vet expected. She is working on strengthening her muscles and she can bounce and play. I’ll add videos at in a gallery on this page to show her progress over her recovery.

2023: Cherie wasn’t feeling well, so she was excused as Not In Condition
AGS Classification Scores
We also participate in the American Goat Society’s Classification program. In classification, an animal is given a final percentage score based on 100 being perfect. In addition, each area of the animal is evaluated and assigned points based on how close that part comes to being ideal. For example, if an animal is given four (4) points out of the allotted five (5) on teats, that is 80%, and the owner knows that the teats on that animal are only 80% of the ideal. The Classifier inputs the score of each area of the body into an app on their phone. After they finish, the program calculates the final score, which the Classifier tells you right away. AGS sends you the score breakdown via email within a day or two, but I had my score breakdown much faster than that. The following pdf is the score breakdown.

Cherie’s sire is *B Land of Havilah ML Galaxy. We retained Galaxy as a Herd Sire in 2020. He is out of Land of Havilah ML Lilly 4*M and *B Land of Havilah TRC Midas. He has the qualities that I’ve been breeding for with a strong chine, level topline, very dairy skin texture, beautiful head and ears. Both his front and rear leg are set correctly. His front legs are straight from both front and side. I love the capacity he has even as a young buck. And his hairdo is rockin lol. I think he will be the biggest buck I have ever owned by the time he is mature. He passes his very dairy skin on to his kids, which promises excellent udder texture in his daughters.
Cherie’s dam is Land of Havilah TL Jasmine 5*M. Jasmine is out of our amazing buck, Triumph, and our lovely doe, Lilly. She is several generations deep in natural raising in the dam lines on both sides of her pedigree. She is long, level, and is deepening nicely. She freshened with a lovely udder in 2021, and I’m looking forward to seeing her freshen again in 2022.
