Quill’s ADGA Genetics Pedigree

This is our first Quaffle daughter and our first Blade daughter–to say we are excited would be a huge understatement!  We are very impressed with the dairy, wedgy style of this doe from sharp shoulders to dairy ribbing to a wide rear leg set and good strength of bone to support it all, this doe is a real eye-catcher, and that’s not even mentioning her flashy coloring! She freshened as a milking yearling in summer of 2013 with a fabulously well attached mammary, unfortunately was appraised only a couple of days after freshening, but her two-year old appraisal certainly was able to see the incredible quality of the mammary. She is still very much an immature two-year old who will likely take another year or two before she really blossoms, but we’re patient and we know all the right parts are there for her to be an incredibly productive, healthy doe for years to come.

Patience has paid off! At our first of 2015, our little wall-flower blossomed with easily winning the ALC District VII LaMancha Speciality championship (even over our beautiful Aurelia, who came up behind her for the reserve). She went on to win her age class in the other three rings, and picked up one more grand champion and a reserve champion. She was complimented over and over again for her incredible balance across the scorecard that couples dairy strength with smoothness of blending. At the National Show, she finished 7th in an incredible class that contained the National Champion, her striking presence led her to being the first doe pulled out of the huge class. A month later at Oregon State Fair, she finished her championship with a Reserve to 11-year old SGCH Barnowl Vendredi *M. The judge commented that she was the epitome of balanced dairy strength.
