New Arrivals 

Historically, every spring & fall, newborn kids arrive on the ranch. Our 2019 breeding program will introduce some new  and exciting young bucks and does, as well as the return of the older fan favorites. The main breeding program will commence in May, with kids arriving in October-November.

Our kids are weaned and available for pick-up at 8-12 weeks. Unless otherwise arranged, all kids will be dis-budded and CDT-vaccinated. We encourage you to select your kids early.

Herd Does

Our Myotonic herd does are a combination of Tennessee and Texas/ Tennessee bloodlines. From the black & white Tennessee lines to the black & white, deep brown, white and fawn of the Texas / Tennessee bloodlines; there is a beautiful show of color & markings. Many are bi- or tri-colored. Doe pedigrees include a number of championship bloodlines - both Permanent Grand Champions and National Champions.

Our Jr.does are beginning to establish their own championship titles. 'Wolf River Jane', born and raised at J-I Ranch, won Grand Champion Doe at the '2017 Iowa's Premier Myotonic Show' when 7 months old. In 2017, a "Bakken's Farm Kid Rock" doeling, Georgia, was purchased.  Georgia has won a number of Jr. Champion Doe and Reserve Grand Champion Doe titles from MGR shows in 2017-2018. In 2019, Georgia won Grand Champion Doe at the 2019 Texas Myotonic Show Down. Both does were bred in June 2018, with kids on the ground in November 2018. J-I Crickett, Jane's doe kid won Reserve Champion Jr Doe at the 2019 Texas Myotonic Show Down. Her buck kid, J-I Rubicon, won Jr Champion Buck & twice Reserve Jr. Champion Buck at the same show.

Another young doe we have been watching is J-I Polaris (Sire: Hillside Acres Bear). Born in March 2018, she won Reserve Jr. Champion Doe at the 2018 MGR Louisiana Laginappe Buckle Blast in September against stiff competition. She won Grand Champion Doe at the 2019 Texas Myotonic Show Down. 

Other J-I Ranch winners at the 2019 Texas Myotonic Show Down include: J-I Sapphire (Jr. Champion Doe), J-I Dallas (Reserve Jr. Champion Doe), and Buck Creek Amara (Reserve Jr. Champion Doe).

Herd Sires

Our Myotonic herd sires come from a long-line of award-winning bucks. Zeus (aka Wolf River Dalton), our foundation sire, is the son of 2014 National Champion ‘Wolf River Malachi’ and grandson of Permanent Grand Champion ‘Hillside Acres Dinger’. 

In 2017, two young bucks were introduced to provide bloodline diversity - 'Hillside Acres Bear', and 'Rising Sun Goat Farm Jaxson'

Bear is the son of Permanent Grand Champion 'Bakken's Farm Kid Rock' and great-grandson of Permanent Grand Champion 'Jamsim's Sassparila' and great-grandson of 2010 National Champion 'Woody Creek Farm WLS Hotrod'. Born in January 2017, Bear established himself by winning Reserve Grand Champion Buck, Jr Champion Buck, and twice Reserve Jr Champion Buck at the '2017 Iowa's Premier Myotonic Show'; Reserve Grand Champion Buck, Jr Champion Buck, and Reserve Jr Champion Buck at the '2017 MGR Midwest Myotonic Show'; Reserve Grand Champion Buck and Reserve Sr. Champion Buck at the '2018 Texas Myotonic Show Down', and three-times Reserve Grand Champion Buck, Sr. Champion Buck, and twice Reserve Sr. Champion Buck at the '2018 MGR Louisiana Lagniappe Buckle Blast'. Bear was sold in 2018 after the Louisiana show. He will leave his impressive genetics at the J-I Ranch through a number of offspring kept as herd does and bucks.

In 2019, Jaxson became a Permanent Grand Champion after winning Grand Champion Buck & Sr. Champion Buck at the '2019 Texas Myotonic Show Down.' Jaxson is the son of Permanent Grand Champion 'Powerhouse Genetics Hugh' and Grand Champion 'Buck Creek Joline', and grandson of Permanent Grand Champion 'Buck Creek Hannah' and Permanent Grand Champion 'Buck Creek Romeo'. Jaxson won Grand Champion Buck and twice Jr Champion Buck at the '2017 MGR Midwest Myotonic Show' and Grand Champion Buck, twice Reserve Grand Champion Buck, twice Sr Champion Buck and once Reserve Sr Champion Buck at the '2018 Texas Myotonic Show Down'.  

J-I Kodiak (Sire: Hillside Acres Bear), born in March 2018, made an early impact; winning twice Reserve Jr. Champion Buck at the '2018 Texas Myotonic Show Down' when he was 8 weeks old and winning Grand Champion Buck at the '2018 MGR Louisiana Lagniappe Buckle Blast' when 6 months old.  

J-I Captain Nemo (Sire: Rising Sun Goat Farm Jaxson), born in March 2018,  continues to impress us. Captain Nemo was awarded Grand Champion Buck, Reserve Grand Champion Buck, Sr. Champion Buck, and twice Reserve Sr. Champion Buck at the 2019 Texas Myotonic Show Down.

Also added as future herd sires from the November 2018 kids are J-I McGregor, J-I Rubicon, and J-I Zorro. All three showed early promise at the 2019 Texas Myotonic Show Down:  J-I McGregor (Sire: Hillside Acres Bear) won Reserve Grand Champion Buck and Jr. Champion Buck. J-I Rubicon (Sire: Rising Sun Goat Farm Jaxson) won Jr Champion Buck & twice Reserve Jr. Champion Buck. J-I Zorro (Sire: Rising Sun Goat Farm Jaxson) won Jr. Champion Buck and Reserve Jr. Champion Buck.

All herd sires are registered 100% Myotonic bucks.

Why is show participation important as a breeder?

Although our primary focus is not as show exhibitors, it is important to us that our breeding stock upholds/excels at meeting breed standards and conformation. Therefore, 1-2 times per year, we select a handful of our breeding stock (does & bucks) and participate in MGR-sanctioned shows. This allows us to receive feedback from a number of qualified judges regarding the conformation and condition of our breeding stock. As breeders, we are serious about promoting good health and good conformation. Conformation is necessary for the long-term productivity and sustainability of the individual goat and ultimately, the herd.

In 2017, we participated two shows - the Iowa's Premier Myotonic Goat Show and the MGR Midwest Myotonic Goat Show. We took 11 goats to Iowa and 7 goats to Oklahoma.  

In 2018, we also participated in two shows. At the Texas Myotonic Show Down, in addition to showing breeding stock, we introduced some of our 'new arrivals' in the pee-wee classes. This was a first showing of the offspring from sires 'Bear' & 'Jaxson'. We also participated in the MGR Louisiana Lapinappe in the Fall, taking mostly junior bucks & does.

In 2019, we participated in just one show - the Texas Myotonic Show Down. We took a mix of young Sr. does & bucks, older Jr. does, and a handful of 2018 Winter kids (total 15 goats).
