Kalypso is my favorite of the 2014 kid crop. A
showy, eye-catching kid from birth, Kalypso excels in dairy strength and
general appearance. She is a very open-ribbed kid with lovely extension
of brisket. She blends very smoothly in her shoulders and is very level
over her topline standing on very correct feet and legs. This little doe
has matured greatly over the summer and we love the promise she is
Kalypso is a daughter of our lovely
Kalista doe and a granddaughter of our beloved Kricket. Her dam excels
in dairy strength and general appearance and both her dam and granddam
have had lovely, productive mammaries. Kalypso is the last daughter of
our beloved Act and his daughters have all freshened with beautiful,
correct mammary systems.
Kalypso was the 3rd
place Intermediate kid at ADGA Nationals and part of the 1st place
Junior Best 3. Shown at National Goat Expo this fall, she was 4X 1st
place Intermediate kid, 1X Junior GCH and 1X Best Junior Doe in Show.
Kalypso freshened with a stunning mammary...very high and wide in the
rear udder with a long, smoothly attached fore udder. She excels in
general appearance and body capacity. This doe shows so very much
promise and we look forward to her second freshening. She appraised 85
as a first freshening yearling.
In 2016, Kalypso again freshened with a lovely, well attached udder
and lots of milk. She still needs to develop some additional body
capacity as she is a slow maturing doe but we love what we are seeing in
this doe. Kalypso appraised 88 VEVV as a 2nd freshener.
Kalypso freshened with lots of milk but was a bit uneven when she
kidded in 2017 thus keeping her out of the show ring which was very
disappointing to us as she had matured and developed into a powerful
doe. We look forward to her freshening in 2018.
Kalypso will be bred
to Sins for March kids. 1st doe will be
retained. 2nd doe and bucks $600.
