I can't even express how precious this doe is
to us. We lost her beautiful dam on
the 4th of July 2012 during an extreme heat wave and she left us way too soon
and with only 2 daughters in the herd. This baby was her last and she is
so very special. Kalista is the youngest kid born that year so was not
shown in 2012. She is very dairy, very tall and very correct, standing on
outstanding feet and legs and showing great width.
In 2013, Kalista was shown as a junior
yearling and really excelled. She was 4X 1st place junior yearling, 1X
GCH Jr doe and stood 2nd at the 2013 ADGA National Show. We couldn't
have been more pleased. She was described by several judges as being a
totally elegant correct doe. As a first freshening 2 year old in 2014,
Kalista was 13th place 2 year old in a very large, competitive class.
She then appraised VG 88. In September we showed Kalista at National
Goat Expo where she was 5X 1st place 2 year old, 1X Sr. GCH doe earning
the 2nd leg of her championship.
Kricket was just everything I wanted in a doe....she excelled in the
show ring and in the milk pail being on the ADGA Breed Leader every
single year since her first lactation. She was tall, dairy, correct and
had a stunning mammary...I miss her so much every time I walk into the
barn looking for that striking head searching me out.
Kalista is sired by Easy and we love the Easy daughters that we have
in the herd. His dam was 2nd place 2 year old, 4th place 3 year old, 2nd place 4 year old
and the 2014 ADGA National Champion at 5 years of age and is just a gorgeous doe.
2015 was a very good year for
Kalista....shown at the Iowa Spring Classic she was 4X 1st place 3 year
old. She was our highest appraised doe at 91 EEEE and earned her SG....we
look forward to seeing this doe mature next year. She followed that up
in 2016 by placing 4x 1st place, 3X GCH and 3X BOB at the Iowa Spring
Classic. She is appraised at 91 EEEE.
Kalista is polled. She will have a shortened
DHIR record this year as we moved her kidding up to February from last
year's May freshening.
Not shown in 2017, Kalista put her focus on
milking and boy did she ever milk! Her current projection puts her near
4000# of milk for this lactation. This doe is another one that
nothing seems to bother and she never misses a meal but she maintains
her dairy strength and body capacity.
Kalista will be bred to Win for January kids. 2nd doe and bucks $800.
