Senior Does

Pepper:  One of my favorites because I lover her udder and how easy she is to milk.   She is our foundation doe, and now most of our doelings are related to her.  She has great fore and rear udder attachments, a strong balanced medial suspensory ligament, great size teats for hand milking, long and great shape around, and her escutcheon is wide and high.   She has good capacity in her udder and can easily hold a over a half gallon without looking like she is about to bust.  She also has very correct legs, and is wide and deep in body.  Her pasterns are holding up well and she is a 6 year old. She is a calm easy going doe whom is a pleasure to own.  She has good rear leg angulation.  She is however is not the best in general appearance over her topline, her shoulders could be sharper into her withers and her rump is not super level but it is not too bad by any means.  She kids very easily  and is a great mamma with wonderful tasting milk. adga pedigree  Pepper kidded April 2016 with twin doelings both two tone chamoisee like last year, so excited, names are Daffodil and Dandelion.  They are Tritan’s daughters.

 

Ginger:  Ginger excels in general appearance and has wonderful udder attachments.  Ginger is my sons favorite show doe as she is super friendly and gentle and will cooperate for any child.  She is a love bug with people but quit pushy with other goats, as she wants them to leave her be, she seems to not like other goats at all, just people, lol.  She was a first freshener in all of  the pictures below except the rear udder is from this spring as a second freshening two year old.  She has good width and depth and is very level with good legs and pasterns.  She came here from Moore’s Pond Farm as a 3 week old.   Her milk is good as well.  Ginger kidded March  2016 with a large doeling and it is a cou clair just like the sire, her name is Saffron.   adga pedigree

Clover and Marigold are the two tone chamoisee doelings shown below, they are Pepper’s doelings from last spring of 2015. They are both half Oberhasli with their sire being Apache under the reference section. Clover and Marigold’s pedigree are the same as they are twins. I do plan to retain doelings from all of these  does this year.

Clover is my favorite doe born here and she has come into milk as a yearling this year and a very nice mammary system thus far.  She kidded with twins for her first round and did well.   She has excellent general appearance and udder attachments and leg angulation.  She also has good width to her escutcheon.  Clover kidded with twin bucks this 4-10-16.
