Paperclip, Money's dam, is my all-time favorite Nigerian dwarf doe. So, when I saw her son for sale it was a no brainer. I needed this boy. I remember getting my first Nigerian Dwarf and doing my due research on the breed. I stumbled upon this National Champion doe that I fell in love with - Paperclip. 149 goats, the best of the best from all over the country... and she won grand champion and best udder. 

Money was a key component in cementing beautiful and capacious udders that I hope to be a staple in my herd for years to come. (or should I say Stapal?) He stands perfectly uphill, even on the move. I could watch him pace all day with the wide and smooth stride he has! His front end assembly is extremely correct, tight, and blended throughout. The depth of body he brings to the table can improve any doe. If I had to choose one flaw, I would say that he may not have the strength and vigor I would like to see in a buck - but he was 7!

Caddy was a small-statured girl, with phenomenal width in her hips, thurls, and chest, despite that small size, and would add it to any kids. Her depth of body and rib angulation always caught my eye when I saw her out in the pasture - she didn't need a show set up to look phenomenal. In terms of mammary, she had great teat placement, position, and shape. The udder was arched nicely into the escutcheon in a wide and high fashion. 
Caddy will be remembered for her sweet bleat, begging for just one more scratchum as you walked out the barn.
