Abracadabra is pictured as a Six-Year-Old Milker at the 2012 ADGA National Show in Loveland, CO.


Abracadabra is better known as "Abby" on the farm; it is much easier to write on the DHIA papers and also on the tiny name tags that label our does.

Abby is a very tall, long, lovely doe. She excels in dairy character with flat, very open ribs. She is also a wedgy doe with extremely sharp withers. Her mammary system is one of ideal shape and texture. The fore udder blends smoothly into the body wall and is highly arched at the escutcheon. The teats are well placed and proportional to her udder size. Abby is one of the few does that we keep milk from to consume for ourselves.

Abby was shown extensively this year at some very competitive shows. We went to Stanwood, Wa; Chehalis, Wa; ISDGA in Boise; Nationals; Spokane Interstate Fair and the Yakima Fair, only to name a few. She has placed consistently at the top of her classes, occasionally receiving a rosette placing.

Abby was a spotlight sale consignment by Ardis Lyons and Mariah Acton in 2006. This buy on our part has proved to be excellent in the bucket and in the show ring. At appraisals she again performed well and solidifies how properly she is put together into an ideal dairy goat.

Abby does lack maturity; particularly in body capacity. As tall as she is, her depth of body has not caught up with her age. Hopefully, in the next years and as an elder doe she will deepen and add to her more ideal characteristics.
