Kerri was a very special
addition just before Christmas in 2018. Her dam is the lovely Karenita who
appraised 90 VVEE as a 3 year old. Her maternal granddam, SGCH Tempo Karenina is a beautiful 92 pt EEEE doe and her
paternal granddam, SGCH Goat-San Venice was the 2015 ADGA National
Champion. This doeling has a pedigree of Whos Who from the LaMancha
Kerri was a very spoiled kid...the only kid in our barn that first winter
until kidding season started. She is tall, long and leggy, sharp over
her withers and long and lean in her neck. This doe will take some time
to mature but we love what we see so far.
Kerri freshened with a lovely, socked on mammary
and lots of milk. She still needs time to mature and grow into those
long, gangly legs but we definitely can see the lovely doe that she will
be in the future. We were thrilled when Kerri was named to the 2020
Elite doe list this summer. We were also excited to be able to add her dam, sister and
niece to the herd this summer.
Kerri was the last doe to
freshen this spring and she came in with a ton of milk again. She has
finally started to grow into her long legs and has developed more body
capacity. Her mammary is still gorgeous with a high, wide rear udder and
a long well attached fore udder. Kerri was again named to the Elite list
in summer 2021 and she appraised 88 VEVE.
Kerri was extremely ill in October
2021. She ran 107 temp for nearly a week and while she continued to milk
her heart out it took a toll on her physically. After a lot of
discussion, we decided to milk her through and breed her back for early
January kids 2023. We feel she needs the time to put on weight and get
back her body without carrying kids.
We were thrilled to be able to
add Kerri's littermate sister, Tempo I'm the Right One (Rone) to our
herd this spring. We can't thank Laurie Acton enough for entrusting us
with this lovely family!
Kerri has continued to milk on
her extended lactation all through an above average temperature summer
and is still going strong into the fall. We can't wait to get her fresh
again in the spring after her extended lactation.
