One of my favorites of the 2016 doelings, Ginger earned her
dry leg the first time she stepped in the ring. She is very tall, long
and dairy. She is sharp over the withers, level over her topline and
rump and smoothly blended throughout. I'd like to see more body capacity
at this point but feel she should develop it as she gets older.
Ginger's dam, Cinnamon, is a big doe that is very correct in general
appearance and mammary and her granddam, Caramel, is a stunning doe with
an exceptional mammary as well.
This is one of my all time favorite does.
She is just a powerhouse and developed so much body capacity over the
past year!! She made the cut in a huge class at the National Show and
was 1st place Dry yearling at the Iowa State Fair in 2017. An injury as
a dry yearling has given her somewhat twisted rear legs so we are not
sure what her future in the show ring will be but her genetics are still
extremely valuable to us.
After a difficult time getting her bred, Ginger
finally kidded with early May kids. She has a lovely udder although
lacking some in capacity this year as a huge 1st freshener. I'd also
like to see her a bit more dairy (food is never a problem for her) and
expect she will dairy up during her second lactation. We will be
breeding her back early this year to bring her into milk during the
winter since her future in the show ring is uncertain.
Ginger will be bred to Win for
January kids. 1st doeling will be retained. 2nd doe and bucks will be $600.
