Fantasy joined our herd at just a few weeks of age
when we went to pick up Win and Skye from Koopman's. A late born kid,
Craig offered her to us as she was very tiny. She stayed smaller
than the rest of the does even thru her dry yearling year and I was
talked into selling her to a new herd just getting started....a decision
I regretted over the last year and a half.
Last fall, I happened to be talking to her new
owner and found out that Fantasy had not bonded as well as hoped with
their son and they were considering selling her and I jumped on the
chance to bring her back into the herd. I knew the quality of her
paternal sisters already in our herd and felt she would be a good
Fantasy made the long trip from the south in September just a week prior
to our schedule appraisal. Upon arrival and clipping I felt she needed
some additional weight to look her best and also found that she had a
fairly deep hoof abscess which ultimately kept her from being appraised.
Fantasy is a tremendously dairy doe with a long dairy neck and sharp
withers. She is very correct in general appearance and has the
same stunning mammary as her paternal sisters.
Fantasy has definitely blossomed since moving back
to the Northwoods. Although she is still an extremely dairy doe and will
never carry any extra weight, she has developed depth and width of body
over the last 9 months. She is also a tremendously heavy milker. Fantasy
prefers cooler weather and our extreme heat has bothered her this summer
so she's spent her time in front of the fans!! Despite that, in her only
show this summer, she was 2X 1st place 4 year old.
Fantasy gave us a beautiful doeling out of Sins
last spring and we will be repeating that breeding for 2019. 1st doe
will be retained. 2nd doe and bucks $600.
