As I look back at breeding LaManchas for over 40 years, there are several animals that have proven beneficial and have made an impact on the quality and continued success that the herd enjoys today. Following are tributes to the most influential herd sires as well as the foundation does whose descendants comprise the current herd.

 Sire: ++*B Lucky Star's QA Wisdom
     SS: GCH ++*B Quixote Shalla's Alladin
     SD: GCH Lucky Star Mel's Tinsel 1*M

Dam: GCH Quixote's Shyla 3*M
     DS: ++*B Mas Que Nada Marcello
     DD: GCH Ananda Hills Shalla*M

 

++*B Quixote Shyla's Xcelsior was purchased when the herd was relatively young to bring some consistency and increased production to the original does that were of varying styles and types. He is genetically strong for these qualities as he is closely bred on the Ananda Hills doe line which feature permanent champion, top ten does that can reproduce those same qualities. The Xcelsior daughters are particularly strong in general appearance and dairyness. They have strong pretty heads, are upstanding, sharp withered, long and level in the back, wide and flat in the rump, strong on feet and legs with mammary systems that are correct in shape, capacity and overall area of attachment. They are slow maturing, don't look their best until they are aged does, but then retain that strength, style and showability into their teen years where they remain extremely competitive for Best in Show honors. He has at least 12 permanent Champion offspring, many of whom appraise EX, including Yolanda, a two-time Canadian National Champion as well as granddaughter Ca-Zing, the 2001 ADGA National Champion.

Lexus was brought into the herd to compliment the Xcelsior daughters. If there was ever one doe in the breed that I could select a son of to use in my breeding program, it was his dam, Zeba, the 1992 ADGA National GCH and 1990 Res National GCH for her style,balance, dairyness, structural correctness and beautiful mammary system. The Lexus daughters are exhibiting this same style being long bodied, level, smoothly blended with strong mammary systems. Lexus himself was a "black and tan," very tall and upstanding, sharp and angular and correct in overall general appearance. Unfortunately he was lost at a very young age, but I look forward to more generations of Lexus offspring in the future by AI.

LA: EX91 EEE

 

Jansen is a most impressive buck with tremendous masculinity and outstanding general appearance. He is uphill with a strong head, very smooth in the front end with a long and level topline that ends in a beautiful wide flat rump. He is strong on feet and legs with straight forelegs, ideal angulation to the rear legs and with strong pasterns and correct feet. He has tremendous power and strength with alot of width throughout and a nice high, wide escutcheon. He is a very stylish and impressive animal and has amassed at least 20 Best in Show wins. He has been awarded the coveted "Best Buck in New York State" award an unprecedented four times! Jansen was also named 2003 ALC All-American Aged Buck, as well as ALC Supreme All-American buck! Shown four times in 2004, Jansen has been 4 times BOB and 4 times BIS.He is the littermate to CH Jantzen and full brother to CH Haberdasher. He has several beautiful daughters including CH Brookwood Jansen Limerick who have inherited the same desirable qualities from their sire.

Dam: GCH South Fork Charming Trinket 2*M (EX90 EEVE)
     DS: SG +*B Redwood Hills Beau Charmer
     DD: GCH South Fork TCM Tess 1*M

 

LA: EX91 EEE

 

I had the pleasure of judging Prowlers dam, Trinket, in the summer of 2003 and was extremely impressed with her correct body style, but most importantly with her outstanding mammary system! She has placed well at several National Shows, has won production awards at the National Show and has been several times All-American including being named Supreme All-American in 2002! I jumped at the chance to purchase her son Prowler, who himself is a very tall, wide and powerful buck. His sire, Hershey, is an All-American winner himself, has sired the All-American Senior Get-Of-Sire three times and has at least 15 permanent champion daughters! Prowlers first kids are extremely stylish and correct and have won several BJDIS awards in 2003. There are several beautifully uddered GCH animals and All-American winners in his pedigree. Prowler has been shown four times in 2004, where he was GCH two times and RGCH two times, earning two legs towards his permanent championship as a 2 year old!  I look forward to using him on several does in fall 2004.

Awards: ALC 2006 Supreme All American Buck

Tucker is blonde, very long bodied and level, with good feet and legs, a lot of width throughout and tremendous strength of bone. His sire, Gideon, is a paternal brother to many beautiful stylish GCH does and has sired several beautiful daughters himself. His dam, Dandelion, is one of those special does in the breed, that has not only matured and become more beautiful as she ages, but also has several sons who have proven their worth by each siring several National Show winners. I expect Tucker to continue the same tradition and legacy.

Dam: Willow Run Luminary Reneca 4*M

Renaissance is a tremendously correct and stylish cou blanc buck. He is very typey, smooth in the front end, with a strong topline and rump, and square on feet and legs. His pedigree is strong through and through with National Show winners. Both granddams are particular favorites of mine ... Agnes who was twice first place at National Shows and the legendary Rishona who has been three times National Champion.

GCH Brookwood Xcelsior Yolanda 2*M  EX91 was an integral part of the herd for many years. She died in October 2003 at the age of 16 1/2 years still with the energy and beauty of a doe 1/3 her age. While finishing her championship as a milking yearling, she retained the strength, style and beauty to continue winning Best in Show honors until she was retired from the show ring at the age of 14 years. She was a two time Canadian National Champion and Best Udder winner, the very first ALC Supreme All-American, placed high at several ADGA National Shows and won Best in Show honors at many large fairs throughout her lifetime and was 7 times Grand Champion at the New York State Fair. She was also the dam of two Spotlight Sale consignments. Her daughter, GCH Brookwood Harlequin Kasey 3*M VG89, sired by ++*B Me's Ranch Dutch Harlequin was one of her best daughters. Yolanda was a joy to breed, own, milk and show and is the type of doe I will continue to strive to breed in the future.

LA: 8-05 VG87 +EEV

 

GCH Secret Ravine Supreme's Diamond 4*M VG88 was my first permanent champion and was a top show doe in her time including a Grand Champion win at the New York State Fair. She was a powerful doe with alot of body capacity, strong feet and legs and a well attached mammary that was particularly high and wide in the rear. This is another long lived line as Diamond lived to be 14 and her first daughter, GCH Brookwod Xcelsior Cameo 5*M VG89, died in the spring of 2003 at 12 years. Diamond's son, and Cameo's littermate brother Canisius, was the sire of the 2001 National Champion, CH Hogg's Hideaway Ca-Zing. Diamond herself had at least two permanent champion full sisters and was very closely related to the notable buck, GCH ++*B Secret Ravine Voyager's Nomad.

LA: 5-05 VG88 VVVV

 

GCH Clover Meadows Firenza 5*M VG88 was a tremendously strong doe that had alot of dairyness and strength in general appearance. She had a beautiful globular mammary system that was well attached with a strong medial and ideal teats, but a case of mastitis put an end to a promising show career. She tended to produce a preponderance of bucks, but did have a few beautiful daughters that have gone on to achieve permanent champion status.

GCH Mt Olympus Silver Santuzza 1*M EX90 was the foundation for my most successful and most numerous doe line through her daughter, GCH Ron-Dac Farm Shadow 2*M, who was the dam to three Grand Champion Excellent offspring. Santuzza was a very stylish, deep bodied doe with an extraordinary mammary. The length and capacity of the fore udder was outstanding. She was several times Best in Show, but the highpoint of her show career was being selected 1st place Aged Doe/1st udder at the 1997 National Show. Her daughter Shadow was one of my all-time favorites and was a beautiful doe who achieved permanent champion status, but unfortunately was lost very unexpectedly at a very young age.

Haberdasher is a very powerful doe that excels in general appearance. She is long and level with alot of width and strength in the front end and carries that width through to a nice wide flat rump. She is strong on feet and legs with a capacious mammary that has a strong medial with correct teat placement. This doe just gets better and more beautiful as she ages.

LA: EX91 EEEE
      EX92 EEEE

Jantzen is a bit more refined and stylish than her sister Haberdasher. She really came into her own in 2003 as a 7 year-old being undefeated for Best of Breed and with several Best in Show wins. She was Grand Champion at the 2003 New York State Fair. She is uphill with a long and level topline and rump and has strong feet and legs. She is sharp withered and correct in the front end with a beautiful mammary system.

Java is a special doe and is a favorite of everyone who meets her. She is the tallest doe in the herd and is long bodied with correctness in feet and legs. Sharp, dairy and stylish and she has a very capacious and well attached mammary system. All these exceptional qualities helped her achieve several Best of Breed and Best in Show wins in 2002. She was Grand Champion at the 2002 New York State Fair and then went on to win Best in Show!

LA: VG88 +EVV
      EX90 VEEE


Madison is a very stylish doe and quite reminiscent of the style of her granddam Zeba. She has the correct and powerful front end as well as a long topline that is level with a wide flat rump similar to her dam Haberdasher. She has one Grand Champion leg.

GCH Brookwood Lexus Mystery 6*M

Mystery has the style and correctness in overall general appearance and mammary to be the first Lexus daughter to finish her Championship. Smoothly blended, strong topline and feet and legs. She has a mammary that is high, wide and smoothly blended in the rear with good extension and smoothness in the fore.

SGCH Brookwood Lexus Nagano 3*M

     DD: Snyder's SSC Tawny 1*M

 

LA: EX90 EEVE
 
Nagano is a very pretty doe, but not yet showing the maturity for her age to be competitive. She is very typical of her maternal line and won't really be competitive until she is a mature doe, and then will only get better and more beautiful as she ages. She is very dairy, long necked, sharp withered with good feet and legs. Her best feature at this point is her mammary. It is globular in shape, with a nice high and wide arch in the rear and beautiful extension of the fore. She has one Grand Champion leg and is the full sister to Niagara and Marek, both Spotlight Sale kids.
