GCH Ober-Boerd Switch
Switch is arguably one of the best does we have ever bred.  She descends from our
original doe, Tornado through her sire.  The Challenger daughters, though few of them,
are some of the best we have bred.  Her half sisters include CH Bree, CH Peanut,
Gabrielle.  Unfortunately we only have one daughter from Switch- but luckily, Saturn
has been more cooperative with having doe kids herself.  Switch's show career is still one
of the best we have gotten from a single doe.  As a yearling milker, she was shown in 17
ADGA Sanctioned shows, and she was 17 x 1st Place!  as a two year-old she easily
finished her championship at her first show, and continued to win 7 GCH, and 6 RCH,
and 5 BOB titles that year!  Her best year was also the year that we lost Switch.  As a
three year-old, she was everything we could have asked of her.  We showed her only in
the Champion Challenge class, and she was beaten just twice, out of 11 tries-and one of
those was to her daughter!  She got ill right before Nationals, but still made the long trip
to Gilette, WY.  In hindsight, we should have left her at home to fully recover, but she still
placed 13th in a class of 3 year-olds that was over 35!  Switch's top accomplishment as a
show doe was at the 2007 Allen County Fair.  This is a show that usually boasts some of
the best goats in the Ohio-Indiana-Michigan area, with some very well-known herds
competing every year.  Switch won BOB at the show, and in looking at the BIS line-up, I
have to say it was extremely impressive: an Alpine that had already won numerous BIS
awards in her career, a LaMancha from a herd that would later boast a National
Champion, a Nubian from a herd that won National Premier Breeder, a Saanen doe that
had already won 9 BIS awards in 2007, a Toggenburg that would finish as National Best
Udder the following year, and a Recorded Grade that had won numerous BIS titles in her
career.  As you can see-a very impressive line-up (Nigerian Dwarves, and Sables were not
sanctioned at this show yet.)  To my complete shock and thrill, Switch was named the
Best Senior Doe In Show!  It was completely unfortunate to lose our beautiful Switch just
2 weeks later, but her legacy lives on through her offspring.
