Quatchi’s ADGA Genetics Page

Long, tall, dairy, level, and wide only begin to describe the structural soundness of this beautiful doe.  Truly her body is what we breed for!  Quatchi blossomed this year with a capacious mammary that is very smooth and long in the fore and high in the rear.  We would like to see a little less delineation between the udder halves with a little more arch to the rear udder–traits we just can’t figure out from where they came as they are so atypical of that line, those crazy Punnett squares!  Those pesky two traits aside, Quatchi is one heck of a doe and while she doesn’t quite have the va-va-voom show udder of her BUIS-winning, paternal sister Carmilla, she really has everything else, making her possibly the most powerful doe overall in our herd since Fish and Hockus. Rightfully, she has been right behind Carmilla most of the 2014 show season and we know if she was anywhere besides the ultra competitive (60 LaMancha seniors per show) northwest, she would have finished her championship a long time ago.

We kept Quatchi’s 2013 doe kid Quetzal out of Honor who is a carbon copy of her mom. Quetzal freshened in May 2014 and we were thrilled to see she is a power-house in the making just like her mom with an incredible arch to the rear udder (see Quatchi’s narrower arch is really a fluke for these genetics!).   Unfortunately Quatchi had a false pregnancy and did not come into milk in 2015. We were sad to not have her on the show string for Nationals. We look forward to getting her bred and settled for 2016. She will be bred to Occult in the hopes of re-creating a Quetzal, we’re especially excited for this breeding after we made the hard decision to part with Quetzal this summer due to her feisty personality in the show ring.

Quatchi freshened in 2016 with triplets, one of the doe kids from which we are excited to be keeping. Unfortunately, Quatchi freshened unevenly with a mild bout of mastitis. We were able to get it quickly under control and while she milks down super soft again, she is still dramatically uneven. For appraisals, the appraiser was devastated that with her udder in that condition, he couldn’t make her excellent overall even though she had high Excellent’s in the other three categories.

It breaks our heart to put this incredibly powerful and sweet doe up for sale, but we recognize that she likely can make a bigger difference in a different herd at this point in time. At 6 years old, she likely has another 5-6 years of production (her dam died at 12 years old), which is many opportunities over to make some truly exciting breedings happen.
