I fell in love with Grace's dam when I saw her the first time at the 2012 ADGA National show in Loveland, CO. She was a flashy, milking yearling with a stunning mammary. We were lucky enough to purchase Grey's son, Win, in 2014 and add Grey herself to our herd in 2015. When Heather Hall contacted me and asked me if I might be interested in adding Grace to our herd I headed on the long trip to PA. We can't think Heather enough for allowing this beautiful girl to join our herd. Grace is a Grey daughter and a littermate sister to our senior herdsire, Win.

Grace is very much like her dam but I think is a bit more upstanding. She is still very immature as a 2nd freshening 3 year old and has some filling out to do but structurally this doe excels. She is very tall and dairy, sharp over her wither, extremely level over her topline and excels in mammary.

Grace was 14th place 3 year old at the National Show and 2nd place at the Iowa State Fair. I think this doe has a lot more exciting things coming in her future and we can't wait to see her achieve her true potential!

2018 has been a rough year for Gracie...she just never seemed to come into full production for some unknown reason! She was a part of our show string for the 1st couple of shows standing well but we decided that uddering her up any more was not in her best interest so she did not attend the Central WI State Fair with us. She was 1st place 4 year old in both rings of the Northern WI State Fair and 1st place 4 year old at the Iowa State Fair. I truly believe that in full production, Gracie would be a force to be reckoned with in the show ring and we really hope to see her back to normal next year. I truly love this pretty powerful doe!

What a disappointment when Gracie aborted  just 60 days from her due date...she had given us trouble settling and wasn't due until May so with the subsequent abortion, we decided to give her the summer off. The time seems to have done her good, allowing her to build the body that she has never had. Gracie freshened in early November with beautiful triplets. We are hoping to get her bred back for late May freshening to get her back on track with the rest of the herd.

Our plans to re-breed Gracie for May kids went awry so she spent much of the summer dry again...this doe just does NOT like to milk during the summer. She is a huge, powerful doe and we really hope we can get her fresh in the spring and get an updated appraisal score on her. Another abortion just 45 days before her due date and Gracie spent another summer dry.....she is such a hard luck doe!

Gracie freshened in January with triplet bucks...making up for her lack of kidding the last 2 years but still not giving me that much anticipated sister to Mimosa!! With her past udder issues, we didn't try to milk her this lactation, drying her up immediately after she freshened. She will remain a brood doe in the herd.

Gracie didn't disappoint when she freshened with another set of triplets this spring ~ 2 does and a buck. It was an easy decision to retain her buck as a junior herdsire. We also retained one of her daughters, reluctantly parting with one! This pregnancy was hard on Gracie and we've made the decision to retire her. She will not be bred this fall but will enjoy the rest of her life in our herd.
