Jarrah has truly impressed this year!  Delivering a single stillborn buckling, nonetheless, she has consistently produced tremendously on a once-a-day milking schedule.  We are very happy with her udder this year - it is capacious, well-attached, with plumb well-defined teats.  We truly wish she had been appraised this year, but are excited about next year.

Aster had a difficult year this year - she delivered triplets with ease, but about a week later began showing some gastric distress which took several months for her to recover.  The vet is not sure if she had some hardware dislodge or a hiatal hernia, but she seems to be on the mend.  We are keeping her dry for 2021 to allow her to regain condition.
Clover was dry (sort of) for 2020 - we attempted to breed her but she did not take and her 2019 daughter nursed well into summer 2020.   She has a well-attached, shapely udder that milks down to nothing.  We look forward to seeing a freshened udder in 2021.
In her first freshening as a yearling milker, Holly has tremendous dairy character.  Her udder is well-shaped, with long teats well placed and plumb.  She has excellent medial support, udder shape, height and attachment.  She did not make a tremendous amount of milk this year, but fed her twins well and we look forward to seeing her potential develop.
                                 
We almost sold Rosemary last year as a first freshener.  She has a beautiful udder - well-attached, excellent medial, height, rear and a decent foreudder, but her teats are small and point slightly out.  Fortunately, I saw in the fall that she was still pumping out the milk so I kept her and milked her through the winter and 2020.  She has held capacity milking once a day for over 18 months now.  Her udder texture is soft and she milks down to nothing.  She has tremendous dairy strength and parasite resistance.

Talullah is our steady Eddie - we know we can rely on solid production and a workmanlike attitude every year.  As a 5 year old, she delivered triplets and performed well in the parlor.  She is not a large doe, but she has a gorgeous udder and produces like the big girls.

Lehua has a gorgeous, well-attached udder with plumb teats.  Her foreudder is the nicest in the herd, and the udder has almost perfect balance fore and rear, with an excellent medial and rear udder height.  She has a quiet, easy disposition and milks out easily.
