Most of our herdsires we've used descend from full siblings sired by ++*B Kastdemur’s Full Service LA 91 and out of SGCH Kastdemur’s Aubrey LA 92 (granddaughter of ++*B Brown Sugar's Crown Ambassador; pictured at left):
- *B Kastdemur’s Aesop LA 90 (bucks- Marvel, Majik Man, Jock; and Battleship)
- GCH Kastdemur’s Audacity LA 91 EVEE (bucks- Ain't He Amazin', Marvel, Montage)
- SG Kastdemur’s Ava LA 90 EVEV (buck- Battleship)
Aubrey was a National Grand Champion, her dam Finale was a National Grand Champion, her daughter Audacity was National Junior Champion, and her granddaughter Temerity out of Audacity was a 2-time National Grand Champion.
Several of our bucks descend from SG ++*B Kastdemur's LH Full Service and SG ++*B Brown Sugar's Crown Ambassador. These bucks have made a strong imprint on many Nubian herds during the past 25 years. We appreciate the Conquest lineage of Ambassador's sire (Royal Majesty), and the Conquest, Frosty Marvin, and Cadillac (Muirhill and Gasconade) background of his dam (GCH Brown Sugar's Chardonnay). The Foxwood herd has meshed genetics from those three lines, with a heavy concentration in the Cadillac, since 1988. To retain the Cadillac "style," most of our bucks descend from Cadillac Piejar, GCH Faith-Farm AG Genesis, Faith-Farm Samaritan, or C/F Thesus.

Jock came to us from Mark Cobble. Jock is a combination of the lines we crossed over the years: Cadillac, Marvin, and Conquest.
We loved Jock's dam, Java, from the first time we saw her at a show as a two year old. Her correctness, smoothness of blending, style, and beautiful head were obvious, and she went GCH.
Jock's sire, Majik Man, is a son of GCH Foxwood Fay Lee Meadow, who was sired by +*B Kastdemur's Aesop. Meadow's dam, Mirada (Champ x 3M Copy), was linebred on GCH Briarknoll Piejar's McCayla. Meadow was 2nd place 3 year old at the 2006 Nationals and was 1st place 5-6 year old at the 2008 National Show. Meadow was bred to a son/grandson of McCayla to produce Jock's sire, Majik Man. Daughter Terra placed in the top 10 in the 2 Year Old Class at the 2014 Nationals, and daughter Patrice was 4th place 3 year old at the 2016 Nationals. Majik daughter Sedona (bred and owned by Mark Cobble) appraised 92 in 2016. We finished our two daughters, Sugar and Sashay, as two year olds in 2018.
Jock sired six daughters in 2014. We showed three of them at the 2014 Nationals. They placed 2nd and 15th in the Junior Kid Class, were 3rd place Junior Get of Sire, and two of them were members of the 4th place Best 3 Junior Does. His daughters have outstanding escutcheons with teats properly placed and plumb. His yearling daughters freshened in 2015, and we are really pleased with the consistency of udders. All his daughters have perfect teat size and shape and good area of attachment. He has four champion daughters and many others with restricted legs.

Lady's Man is a son of the highest appraising daughter of Kastdemur's Ain't He Amazin', a buck we purchased as a kid from Kastdemur's several years ago. We kept two sons of Amazin' (Darkness and Marvel) and have champion daughters of both bucks in our herd that have appraised 92 EEEE. Like his dam, Lady's Man is a tall, long dairy animal.
His sire, Fired Up, has two champiom daughters and descends from our foundation doe GCH Briarknoll Piejar's McCayla through two of her sons that were AI sired by Frosty Marvin sons (Cisco- sired by Smooth Operator; and McCay- sired by Big Max). His sire's dam is a granddaughter of another Kastdemur buck we owned several years ago, *B Kastdemur's Aesop.
Pictured is the dam of Lady's Man and his two champion paternal sisters, owned by Mark Cobble (Cobble's Valley Farm).
