I fell in love with this doe when I first saw her in the show ring at the 2012 ADGA National show in Loveland, CO. She just catches your eye and sticks with you. I knew then that if she ever became available I wanted to own her and our to our delight, Grey became available last summer.

A flashy black and white doe, Grey excels in dairy strength and mammary. She is tall and sharp at the withers, smoothly blended in her shoulders with a beautiful, level topline. She stands on outstanding feet and legs and her mammary is just gorgeous. Her fore udder is beautifully extended and smoothly blended and she has a very high wide rear udder with tremendous area of attachment. Grey is a tremendous milker and she milks down to nothing.  Her udder is just velvety when milked out.

We were absolutely thrilled when Grey appraised 92 EEEE under a very tough appraiser this summer. She is a bit light on one half of her udder as she gets later in lactation so we are hoping to freshen her later in the year closer to the show season in order to take her to nationals in 2017.

Grey's grandsire is Conagher and we see many of the same qualities in Grey as we do Caramel and Charlotte, our other Conagher granddaughters. Grey has a son, two daughters and 2 granddaughters in the herd.

2018 was a year of turmoil for Grey. Confirmed pregnant for January 2018, Grey did not kid. We had tried to dry her up in November without a lot of luck. A blood test in early February again confirmed her pregnant but an ultrasound 2 months later confirmed an open doe!! We brought her back into milk as we did not want her putting on too much weight. In June we took Grey for a reproductive consult with the Univ. of MN Vet Hospital and they felt she was ready to breed back for 2019...our fingers are crossed. They do however not recommend we use Biotracking to confirm her pregnancy as she STILL tests pregnant despite multiple negative ultrasounds!

After all the reproductive turmoil we weren't sure it was feasible to keep Grey in our show string but she sure proved us wrong....going BOB and BSDIS at the Northern WI State Fair. She stood no lower than 2nd all season...quite a feat for a doe that was dry part of this year!

Grey will be bred to Sins for January kids. All does will be retained. Bucks $800.
