We are not sure what happened to Alchemy this spring but she started limping badly on a front foot. She is a tough girl, though, and continues to come up the stairs to the milking parlor and jump onto her stand. Her milk production isn't as good as it would have been if she was moving better, but Kimmy is still doing a great job. We appreciate Kimmy's work ethic and a glad that her leg seems to be improving.
Kimmy is one of our best milkers and often wins our twice daily milking parlor competition. She milks out quickly from a gorgeous udder with teats that are plumb and well set.
I got my wish and was able to keep a Kimmy doeling this year. We are looking forward to watching her grow and become as productive as her mom.
Alchemy has now earned her Superior Genetics title.
It was no surprise that Kimmy scored well on her linear appraisal. She is a lovely, productive doe that is a pleasure to work with. Kimmy kidded with triplet doelings this year and I was planning on keeping one – but somehow the reservations got mixed up and all three girls headed to new homes. I sure plan on keeping one next year!
Kimmy still has a lot of growing and maturing to do, but that isn't stopping her from being a valued member of our milking team. She has a lovely udder with very well placed teats. She milks out easily and really enjoys her time in the milking parlor.
The good folks at Witch Hazel Dairy were kind enough to let us bring one of their lovely doelings into our herd.
Witch Hazel Dairy's Herd Queen M's Sagebrush ZAP Sarina did a great job of kidding with twin doelings. Sarina's ancestry goes back to some of the same great herds that we started our herd with many years ago. We are glad to get the chance to reincorporate those genetics. The kids were sired by Black Mesa Magic Nebula. We are excited to have this beautiful girl join our herd.
Thanks so much, Hazel. We'll take good care of her.
