As a 12-year old 12th freshener, Raindancer was a stylish, long-necked, smoothly blended doe with a beautiful front end assembly and a high, tightly attached udder with superior rear and fore attachments; she is the matriarch of our herd. Raindancer died 11/2/5 at 13.5 years of age; she will be forever missed for her outstanding conformation and winning personality.

As a three year-old, Raindancer won a Best-In-Show, one Grand Champion, and two Reserve Grand Champions.  In 1996, she finished her championship, winning two more Grand Champions.  In 1997 she was Best-Of-Breed three times at the prestigious REDGA show, and Best-In-Show under Sheila Nixon; she was also Grand Champion at the Mendocino County Fair, and Reserve Grand Champion at the California State and Sonoma County Fairs.  In 1998 she won three Best-In-Shows, including the Mendocino County Fair, five Best-Of-Breeds, and another Reserve Grand Champion at the California State Fair. In 1999, at age 7, Raindancer was five times Best-Of-Breed , and Best-In-Show at the District VIII Alpine specialty.  At the National Show, she was 2nd with 2nd udder in a class of 28, and part of our 1st place Breeder’s Trio and 1st place Dairy Herd. In 2000, she was awarded Grand Champion at the California State Fair, and was Best-Of-Breed at the REDGA show under Kristi Bozzo and Lynn Harrington. In 2001, she was 1st place Aged Doe at the California State Fair, Sonoma County Fair, and Mendocino County Fairs, and Reserve Grand Champion at Sonoma and Grand Champion and Best-In-Show at Mendocino.  In 2002, at age 10, she was Grand Champion at the Sonoma County Fair, and 1st place Aged Doe at the Mendocino and California State Fairs. In 2003, Raindancer was 1st place Aged Doe at the California State Fair, Mendocino County Fair, and was Reserve Grand Champion at the Sonoma County Fair; she was subsequently retired from the showring. 

Raindancer was a phenomenal brood doe; all our does are descended from her. Three of Raindancer's daughters are permanent champions.
