We started raising raising purebred registered myotonic goats in the spring of 2012. I originally purchased 3 does as pets. Those does were bred, and we soon had 6. We purchased our first buck, Barney, shortly after that. We started showing our goats in the summer of 2013. Our first doeling, Jasmine, took Jr. Reserve Grand Champion at our first show and I was hooked after that. We began purchasing more goats, learning about good conformation, and we continue to show. We have met a lot of great people showing these goats. I have hosted the Buckeye Showdown, which is currently, the only MGR show in Ohio. We have expanded the Buckeye Showdown this year to include an open market wether and breeding doe show.
Kristy Shearer is now licensed as a judge for the Myotonic Goat Registry. Call if you are looking for a judge for a future show!
In summer 2014 and fall 2015, we tested our entire herd, over 1 year of age, for CL, CAE, and Johnes. We were thrilled to announce that all goats were negative. All new goats brought onto the farm since then have also tested negative for all 3.
