CHICKS WITH GOATS REBEL POE

1x Best In Show
2x Grand Champion & Best of Breed
1x Reserve Grand Champion

Poe is a 2018 buck sired by Open Hands Farm Totes Mcgoats (SG Agape Oaks FC Miracle +B x Agape Oaks REM Dazzling Dixie) and out of AGS Mesquite Meadows Summer (AGS Serendipity Acres R Richochet x AGS Southern Drawl Lady Luck). He is MerryTale Farm’s first Nigerian Dwarf buck and is ADGA and AGS registered. We were very pleased with his first crop of kids in 2019 and look forward to raising and showing more of his progeny. His daughter, MerryTale RP Dazzling Lyra, placed first in her class at the 2019 WCDGA Summer Shimmy in Decatur, TX.

Poe currently has 2 legs toward his permanent championship and won a Best in Show at the 2019 Strutt the Rutt in Neosho, MO, the largest dairy buck show in the nation. 234 bucks showed up for this show including over 50 Nigerians with 17 bucks in Poe’s yearling class. It’s pretty uncommon for Nigerian Dwarfs to win BIS, let alone a yearling Nigerian! We are incredibly proud of our handsome boy who was commended for his correct legs, tight toes, long and level topline, rear leg angularity, and dairy appearance. When awarded his BIS, the judge said he would not change a single thing about him and it was for that reason that he was awarding him Best in Show.
