ROSASHARN RECOVERY FUND
Anne Petersen of Rosasharn Farm was in a terrible rollover accident on the Mass Turnpike on her way to the ADGA Nationals in KY with 24 of her best goats. Two does were killed and there are several more with injuries including broken legs. We are so sad that Anne wasn't able to compete with her wonderful herd at the ADGA Nationals because we are sure one of her does would have been the 2014 National Grand Champion!! We are lucky enough to have 3 herd sires from her including CH Rosasharn BB Tom Bombadil.
We are extremely proud to be the home of CH Rosasharn BB Tom Bombadil *B who is producing some wonderful kids for us! Bombail is the grandsire to J-Nels LY Yahoo.com & J-Nels LY Siu Mai who are both 2013 Spotlight Kids. Bombadil is also the grandsire of the 2012 Spotlight Doeling J-Nels LY Samosa and the son of SG Rosasharn P Haiku 4*D who is the ADGA 2010 National Champion Senior Doe, 2010 National Best Udder, 2011 ADGA Top Ten DHI Breed Leader in Milk Production who just received a Superior Genetics award!
Bombadil's daughter Chenango-Hills Lillibelle 7*D & 6*M is on the 2013 ADGA Preliminary Top Ten DHI list for milk & protien. Chenango-Hill's Pheobe 6*M also made the list for protien on ADGA & AGS.
OUR 2014 SHOW SEASON HAS STARTED !!
We attended the 2014 Northeast Dairy Goat Classic - Sponsored by the Eastern New York Goat Club on May 17th where Chenango-Hills Tatyana placed Reserve Champion. Helderberg MO Velvet and Lace (Magneto x Moon Shadow) placed Grand Champion in ring two of the Junior show and earned her first leg. Helderberg POF Apricot Brandy (Prince of Fire x Tatyana) placed Reserve Champion to Lacey and went on to place Grand Champion in ring one also winning her first leg.
We started the 2014 show season on a great note again this year. We are proud to announce that on May 3rd we attended the 19th Super Buck Extravaganza where Helderberg TB Magneto won Grand Champion in 2 rings! He is the son of CH Rosasharn BB Tom Bombadil *B and Chenango-Hills Tatyana. Although we have been very pleased with all of Magneto's offspring from 2013 & 2014 this is the first time we have shown 3 year old Magneto because he has large scurs which we knew would figure into his general appearance score. Bombadil's offspring continue to prove that Bombadil is not only a champion in the ring but that he also passes on his wonderful traits to his offspring!
Although we didn't breed him we were excited to hear from John Nelson that our buck's - CH Rosasharn BB Tom Bombadil *B - son Chenango-Hills Lysander earned his 2nd and 3rd legs which finished him! He also won Best In Show! Congratulations John, Judy and Lysander!
