Carleton Ranch raises show wethers and full-blood, registered percentage and commercial Boer goat breeding stock.
Look What's New!
Nine fall 2016 kids arrived in a rush on Oct. 18 and 19. More on the 2016 Kids page.
New bucks MOTO Mulisha and Shepherd Creek Casino Royale have joined the herd. See them on the Bucks page. We'll put those boys to work in late November for April kids.
We have some beautiful new does and doelings. First is Rockin V Ranch Daisy, a fullblood whose pedigree includes Favorite Trick and The Big Cat. See her on the Does page. Next is One Hot Mama, an unregistered wether doe who is ABGA National Grand Champion EDSR Touchstone's HotShot granddaughter with a pedigree that also goes back to Favorite Trick, along with her March doe kid, Hotsy Totsy. And finally, 3 little MOTO G-Unit and Venom doelings from Hard Chargin' Boers, from whom we hope to produce beautiful wethers.
Ecoboost 354 has been collected, and semen is now available from Bosque Valley Reproduction Center. $75/straw, discounted to $50 each if you buy 10 or more. Great genetics for an affordable price.
Six new young does have joined us. They are all half-sisters, sired by a son of Garland Gallagher's wether buck Rooster, out of does sired by his Freaky buck. We're looking for some fantastic wethers from them next year!
Our latest buck, Ecoboost 354, has arrived from Oak Ridge Farms. He's sired by Goober, who is a double-bred 900 buck, so we're hoping to jumpstart our wether program to a new level with him. See him on the Bucks page.
R.I.P. Johnnie Llama. At the age of 18 our faithful guard llama had to be put down. Job well done, JL.
Congratulations to Rolando Ramirez and his doe, who was chosen Grand Champion Doe at the Starr County Youth Fair in Feb. 2013. She went on to place 7th in a big class at the 5-county Rio Grande Livestock Show in March, against some big-name competition.
Congratulations to Tayler Sullivent and her wether Jasper (a DQ Dude son) who won their class at the Young County Fair in Jan. 2013. Her other 2 Carleton Ranch wethers, Bubba and Ryder, were 3rd and 5th in their respective classes.
Congratulations to Gabriel Guilbeaux and his wether Nimrod (a Tornado son), who won the heavyweight class at the Williamson County show Nov. 29, 2012.
SKW2P Check the Load (aka Checkers), a March 2012 doeling out of Hayr1 by KTM Fully Loaded, placed 2nd in the 0-3 month fullblood doe class at the Lone Star Buckle Series in Boerne May 19. See her in the ring on the 2012 Kids page.
