In the years that we have made our little hillside our home we have lost many, the first being a little mutt puppy that we named Daisy Mae, then my Jake, the last of the original farm cats from my parents home and Petey, my beloved guardian who came to us the same way that Daisy Mae did as someones cast off. We got a border collie that we named Brandy Lee not long after Daisy Mae left us, she passed in the same manner just 2 weeks after I lost my Dolly.
I decided to call my herd "DOLLY'S ACRE" in memory of my first little pygmy doe. Dolly was the sweetest and had the softest babydoll eyes I have ever seen. She was born November 7,2000 and came to me in April of 2001. In the years following Dolly gave me the sweetest little pygmy babies as well as an abundant supply of sweet milk. It was during her last attempt to give me the twin doelings that she was carrying that I knew something was not right. I pulled dead kids and my Dolly passed the next morning with her head on my lap looking at me with her sweet and loving Baby Doll eyes. Each registered kid born here is a tribute to my precious Dolly's life and what she has given me.
Tilly, my first retained doe from Bootsie passed on Monday June 22,2009 due to an error on my part with giving a supplement to help with a deficiency.
Tilly was my herd queen that took Dollys position when she passed,now my little herd is going through the pecking order once again and Tilly's daughter Heidi will hopefully fill her mamma's hoof prints here one day.
He was the main man around here! Affectionately called "Hank the Crank" he had sired 19 does and 10 bucks.

My old girl left me with dignity and respect, Bootsie will forever be with me.
As my first mini, this gal is very spoiled!
Boots has been retired since her last freshening in Feb'08, .Bootsie continued to put milk in the pail for 23 months, a pint a day adds up. Boots lived her last years as my herd queen and of course has a very special place in my heart as my #1 HAYBURNER!
Hollow Ache R Binkey
Binkey was my first Registered Nigerian Dwarf doe and came to be the foundation of my Nigerian Dwarf herd in 2007, she was my most prolific milk doe and provided me with many moments of loveable "Bink Bink" moments. She will always be remembered and thought of with love. Binkey passed 2 days after a vet assisted delivery of an expired doeling.
