GCS C-160 "PENNY"
Penny is tank/train conformation. Her offspring have had great muscling in each breeding year. In 2016, she was chosen for an embryo transfer project using semen from the original savanna import progeny JCS 35. In 2017, she was selected for the Y8 project. (Industry leading Herdsires: "Hercules, "King's Ransom", "Barricade") In 2018 she kidded twins using NJW Damascus. SH Heavy Metal and SH Angel are amazing. In 2019, she kidded quad females using WW E05's semen to kids each over 10 lbs. Her offspring have been impressive with quick growth rates, and quickly become the prize of their owners. Penny have become a living legend of production. Each buck that is chosen to cover her, the kids have been better than the parents. That is the mark of a great dam. Penny has 1x1 teats, long loin, and great mothering skills. She nursed and weaned the quad doelings last year with .41-.55 ADG without supplement (upper right). Penny has become the top producing doe of all time in the Savanna industry, with more than 35 registered offspring. Penny is a Rockstar!
I know what you are thinking… Yes, Penny will take your goat's lunch money.
SH Y8'S KATIE
KRI Y8 had been a poster buck for us, when we became Savanna breeders more than 12 years ago. His picture was selected for many writings about the Savanna goat in various media. It was with great joy that we were able to find he had been collected by Nanette Brock in Texas. We collaborated with Nan to bring this top producer back to life with 3 projects. It would be no wonder that we retained 6 of Y8's doelings from our genetics work. We have found Y8 offspring to have good heartiness and parasite tolerance here in Virginia. SH Y8's Katie is out of Y8 and GCS Penny.
SH Y8'S SABRINA
Sabrina has nice pigment, good developing structure, and a great disposition. She has 1x1 teats, nice topline, and strong pasterns. We used her for a test breeding with SH Thunderbolt. She kidded twins in November 2019.
Sabrina was added to Mike and Allison's program at 3 Oaks goats in Texas.
SH Y8'S EVELYN
Evelyn shown left at 6 1/2 months. This was the follow up project a year later than the first, using Y8 over Ireland (WW5 Daughter). This merging of the old lines together brought height and thickness. Roman nose and pigmentation are perfect. She is being groomed for future genetics work.
SH Y8'S CROWN JEWEL
We used KRI Y8 over Delilah for this gem. Jewel's fast growth rate, nice structure, and perfect pigment led to her selection in a project with the great SH Juggernaut. She was live covered and surprised us with a large production of embryos that exceeded our recip count, and needed to be frozen. We were able to program additional recipients and implant these embryos in September 2019.
SH 152 WW E05'S IRELAND
She is a young daughter of the prolific WW E05 from Boney Winkler and Ty Williamson's (WW) original savanna program, and her dam is GCS Fiona (Brom Bones/X414 daughter). WW E05 is the son of JCS 16 and JCS 18, which were imported as live animals from South Africa. His kids are notably larger than their peer. Ireland and her litter mate "Caddy" are making big names in the industry.
In 2019 she was paired with Amorearts Z Kronos in an embryo flush project.
This sweet yearling doe sired by SH Nemesis with SH WW5's Ireland. We bred her this past June for November 2022 babies with our holdback sire "SH Eccentric Revenant". This is the fruit of the labor.
This yearling doe was the product of our fall 2019 project. Amoreart's Z-Kronos over SH WW5's Ireland. This was an amazing flush pair. Lanette has been following these kids progress from our customers across the country. SH Olympus and SH Poseidon are stand out sons.
Shown here at 6 months
CAT3 got her name by deciding to be born during a Category 3 hurricane in Florida. The center of the storm destroyed her shelter. No worries, Cat 3 was up and nursing during the rain and wind. Linda Hughes was sure she and her dam had died, but found them alive and well the next morning.
SOS Cat 3 was a top weanling of Linda's farm, a perfect fit for us. It did not take her long to become one of our favorites. (SOS A151 over ITG B70)
Pictured here with her newborn wet daughter SH Hannah. This picture was featured in Sheep & Goat magazine. Scarlett is a SH Juggernaut daughter born in 2019. Her dam was GCS China, the daughter of Brom Bones. She ties into the Heatland flush line on the dam side and GCS Iron Man on the sire's side.
From the pic above, This December 2021 born gal is starting to grow up. Already published with a famous smile, she has developed nicely. We plan a spring 2023 breeding with her.
SH 154 SUZANNA
This doe was the product of Big Jim over Pansy. (Suzanna is Juggernaut's sister) We have been striving for increased size and conformation, and she delivers in both categories.
The test breeding using NJW Green 36 frozen semen with Suzanna, created two very nice doelings (SH Jeri and SH Carol). They were named after our mentors, Jerry and Carol Webb. Green 36 was one of Jerry's favorites.
Suzanna is a meat-wagon.
Suzie was born in April 2021. We used our prospect buck "SH Piledriver" over top proven doe GCS Pansy. Pansy has delivered large kids for over 9 years. That Iron man line has been successful year after year.
SH JCS 55's ZEUS' APHRODITE
Aphrodite shown left at 13 months. She is the daughter of JCS 55 Zeus and TTS 825 "Boss". She is the sister to JCS 55's Thunderbolt. Just like Thunderbolt, she has tall frame, nice hip and is long in the loin.
Zeus' offspring were top performers in early savanna breeder's herds. This reputation has led to the demand for Zeus progeny offspring.
Georgina shown left at 9 months. She is the daughter of a test breeding with PJT Little Georgie and SOS Mercedes born in 2018. Georgie spent almost a year on our farm before heading to Tennessee. Mercedes is a cross of early MGF and ITG breeding. Georgina has 1x1 teats, nice top line and good height. We used Georgina with a breeding of frozen semen from NJW Green 36.
Pixie is the creation of old bloodline semen of NJW Green 36 put with our top project doe SH JCS55's Aphrodite. Aphrodite caught the eye of Brooks Klein for use in his genetics work in North Dakota.
Pixie bred late June 2022.
SH ASHLEY 266
Born in 2019, this doe is sired by SH Tornado and TTS 825 "Boss". Ashley has 1x1 teat structure, nice top line, total black skin under her coat, and a balanced appearance. The JCS 35 bloodline over Boss delivered the goods here.
Ashley is now with Eric and Michelle Martin in TN.
Ashley is now with Eric and Michelle Martin in TN.
TTS 825 "BOSS"
Tim and Teresa Swain (TTS) were early Savanna breeders in North Carolina. They had access to many of the best genetics, and diligent in using DNA within their program.
This old gal has 10 years of proven performance. She has averaged 2.1 kids/year. She has lived on farms in NC, Iowa, and Virginia facing various climates and management. "Boss" was sired by rare line NJW Orange 16. Genetic heritability of traits will vary, but you can see why we acquired her.
She is tall, thick, long, big cannon bones, strong pasterns, wide chest, 1 x 1 teats, totally black skin under the coat, while meeting full breed standard. She is a stand out in the industry. I would normally not select a pic standing on the fence, but its her favorite position, as it showcases her undercarriage and enthusiasm. She is the Boss!
This girl was bred by Leo Deutsch in Oklahoma. Her sire was 4C 2010 "Bull" , DNA verified. Her dam is 3DS Carly, Leo's wife's favorite doe. Carissa has a strong top line, good length in loin, strong pasterns, dark pigment, and a deep chest. She weaned twin boys in 2020 with .48 ADG; kidded triplet girls in March 2021.
Carissa's daughter-lot 37, was one of the stars, selling for $3700 at the 2020 Savanna Spectacular auction for her last owner.
