CH Barnowl Avalon
American black/white, DOB: 05/2009
Avalon is the last daughter of our much beloved “orca” named Aphrodite, who died of a quickly spreading mouth cancer months after giving birth to this beautiful doe. Avalon was a sharp, dairy, and lengthy dry yearling in 2010 who placed well throughout the year, including winning junior Champion and Best Junior Doe in Show at the ever-competitive NWODGA spring show. She then freshened with a very correct mammary system in 2011 and really began pulling it all together with more length, depth, and dairy shining through every day. Now an “aged doe” at a youthful 5 years old, Avalon excels in dairy character, general appearance, and mammary system. She is truly a stunning, flashy doe that will undoubtedly be strong and productive for years to come.
She is a doe that can take one of the prettiest pictures in the world, but just like when she doesn’t want to show, if she doesn’t want a photo taken she can refuse it all on her own. Sadly one of the worst photos of her is from the glitzy National Show, where she decided that big fancy lights were not for her. Although the photo doesn’t do her justice, her placing in 5th in such a competitive class standing behind 2 other Barnowl does was definitely a job well done.
