Sharla was looking for a foundation doe to start a
small, select herd of Recorded Grades when Jeremy Bethel offered this
bred yearling as the 2016 National Show Raffle doeling. Although we were
unable to accept a doe that was due to freshen, this doe really caught
our eye and Jeremy was willing to part with her so we picked her up at the National show where she was 8th
place milking yearling.
Deliah is very correct throughout with a lovely,
well attached mammary. She is very immature for her age but we really
feel this doe will be one to watch in the future. She handled the change
of herds like an old pro and we look forward to seeing her with a second
freshening under her belt. After being home for over two weeks, she is
really starting to put on body and her milk production has
increased...this is going to be an exciting doe to watch in the future!
Deliah made the cut easily in Madison at the
National show but got very sick after we returned home. She recovered in
time for the Iowa State Fair but had lost quite a bit of weight. The
judge mentioned how very much he liked her but felt she needed more
substance and we feel time will help her regain her weight and bloom
lost with her illness. She completed over 3100#M as a 2nd freshening 2
Deliah had a wonderful 3 year old year going
2X 1st and 2X Grand Champion at her first show out. I accidentally
left Deliah home when we left for the Iowa State Fair (oops...it was
dark!) but she finished out the year being 2X 2nd at her last show.
Deliah was also on the 2017 Experimental Breed Leader list in all 3
catagories! We can't wait to watch this beautiful doe mature!
Deliah will be bred to Sins for
March kids in a repeat breeding from 2018.
Her kids will be 75% LaMancha-25% Togg.
1st doe will be
retained, 2nd doe $600.
