When the opportunity arose this spring to add
Gracie's only daughter to the herd we were ecstatic.
Gracie and her dam, Grey, are huge personal
favorites of mine. We made the long trek out to pick
up Gabby but we have faced some challenges. Gabby
was in very rough shape physically when we picked
her up. She was extremely thin and a triplet buck
1st pregnancy had only exacerbated her already poor
condition. So this has been a summer of renewal for
Gabby. She settled into our herd with no problems
and has already made huge strides into regaining a
normal body condition. Gabby is such a sweetheart
and so very much like her dam. While we had hoped to
add her to our show string this year, I have no
doubt that she will shine next year.
is structurally extremely correct. Tall and sharp
over the wither, wide in the chest and level over
the topline, Gabby really excels in both general
appearance and dairy strength. She has started to
build her body capacity but that will be a work in
progress for many months to come. Her udder,
although small, is very pretty and correct. She has
a long smooth fore udder and a wide, high rear
udder. Capacity will come in time when she is
milking up to her potential. This doe reminds me so
very much of her maternal grandmother, Grey and we
really expect great things from her!!
Gabby will be bred to
Quong for March kids.
All does will be retained. Bucks $600.
