Harmony struggled through the last part of her pregnancy and her singleton doeling was born dead. Harmony’s milk didn’t come in very well, so we dried her off early and are hoping that a year off will let her recover and get ready to try again. We are really loving her daughter that she gave us last year, and are hoping that Harmony will give us a healthy doe kid this next time around.
Finally! Harmony kidded with 2 does and a buck. But like kids in a candy store we couldn't decide which doeling we wanted to keep. So when some fine folks from Utah wanted one of them, I let them pick. We are so glad to finally have a Harmony daughter. Harmony is very elegant and has great presence about her. She is delightful to have around.
Beautiful Harmony scored as Excellent on her linear appraisal this year. But once again she only had buck kids. We'll try again for a doeling from her next year.
Harmony continues to delight us. She is an easy-going, productive, beautiful doe. She kidded this year with triplet bucks even though I had asked her for a daughter. Well, we'll try again next year.
We had an amazingly tough Linear Appraisal session this year. The appraiser was cranky and overworked. While our goats still scored nicely, only Harmony and her half sister, Miranda, scored as First Time Excellent. We are proud of both of these young girls. Harmony - we knew you would do it!
Harmony now has a son that has qualified for ADGA's Sire Development Program!
It was love at first sight when Harmony was born and it continues to be love at every sight. She is a gorgeous, productive girl and lovely to look at whether she's in the milking parlor or out on the range.
July 2008 update:
Harmony didn't let us down! Originally we weren't supposed to keep her but she charmed us with her great attitude and good looks. Now she is a beautiful young lady and a productive milker. She will easily earn her milking star this year and she was our highest scoring yearling on Linear Appraisal (LA). Her maternal half-sister, Sesame, scored as Excellent on her LA this year so it will be fun to see if Harmony can do that too. I suspect she will.
July 2007 update:
Do you believe in love at first sight? Well, sometimes it happens. We weren’t supposed to keep a doeling born this late in the year, but how could we resist? Harmony is a delightful girl, with great conformation, wonderful genetics, and a sweet, calm attitude. What’s not to love?
