Our son Jeffrey raised Dutch and New
Zealand rabbits while he lived home with
us.  He was a wonderful help to us with all
the farm chores.
Jeffrey proudly served our country with the
US Marine Corp during Operation Desert
Storm.  He and Laura and their daughter
Kaylie Marilyn live in Kernville, CA, where
Jeffrey is a California Highway Patrol
(CHP) Officer.
Our daughter Christen has always loved showing dairy goats.   We used to travel to about fifteen
shows every year where she competed and excelled in showmanship as well as breed classes.  
Christen is now a lawyer and is CEO of MAYA Corporation in Pittsburg, PA.  In her "spare"
time Christen coaches both boys' and girls' high school volleyball teams, girls' basketball and
judges dairy goats.
Our daughter Lauren always loved animals as well.  She would spend
many hours in the barn bonding with all her own goats and wanted to
almost sleep out there with them if we would have let her!
Lauren is now a social worker in Philadelphia and has discoved that
although her roots were "country" she absolutely loves city life!
Little Savanna Brooke Taylor is pictured at three years of age.  She is
our very first grandbaby and was born November 16, 2009 to our
daughter Lauren and Tim Taylor.
Savanna lives in Philadelphia but we try to get a little country in her
when she visits.  What a joy she is!  (and perhaps our next little
herdsman?)
