Rue is our first Win daughter and we couldn't be happier with her...she excels in dairy strength being sharp over the withers, smoothly blended in her neck and shoulders, level over her topline, with tremendous spring and flatness of ribbing. She also stands on beautiful feet and legs and is maturing into a lovely, striking doe.

Rue's dam, Johanna was our first milking Denim daughter and we really loved her mammary system. She was definitely a keeper if she had not had an udder injury that prevented us from showing her. Rue's sire, Win, is a very correct, striking buck with tremendous width and general appearance. His dam is our beautiful Grey doe and she is a herd favorite with fantastic general appearance and a gorgeous mammary.

I continue to really love this doe---her style, her levelness over the topline and her width throughout. Although she is a smaller type doe, she excels in so many areas and I feel we are going to see a a very promising doe as she continues to mature.

Rue certainly didn't disappoint when she kidded. Her mammary is simply glued on and is very extended in the fore and very high and wide in the rear. She also continues to be such a stunning general appearance doe. We were thrilled when her first appraisal ended with an 89 EVVE...yes an E in mammary as a 1st freshening 2 year old fresh 8 months!!!

Rue has continued to mature and develop depth and width of body with her second freshening and she continues to milk like a pro!Freshening as a 4 year old, Rue had a difficult kidding so it took her time to snap back. While still milking well, she is not quite herself this year. She has developed into a very deep bodied doe and still has her glued on mammary. We were thrilled when she appraised 91 EEVE at our summer appraisal.

This was Rue's year!! She really put on that body capacity that she has always been lacking, adding spring of rib and depth of body. Her udder maintains that glued on style and she continues with her +3300# milk records.

Rue had an amazing record as a 5 year old.....breaking the 4000# milk record with 140# of fat. She thrived in a year where she got to simply stay home and make milk....and as usual was very hard to dry up at the end of her lactation. We look forward to seeing this lovely coming 6 year old in milk again.

Rue had a difficult kidding with a large single kid and it took her a long time to come to her milk this past spring. She was only shown at one show where she was 2X 2nd and 2X 3rd. This has been a rough year for her and she is starting to show her age a bit. She is greatly loved by James and continues to be a valuable member of our herd but we did decide to dry her up early this year. She is a very difficult doe to get dry every year and we wanted to be sure she had a break this year.

Although Rue again freshened with a single buck kid, this was definitely HER year. I hadn't planned to show her but James begged to take her out "just one more time" and it was definitely a great decision. Show day dawned and Rue uddered up perfectly....as a 7 year old, she was 4X 1st place Aged doe, 2X GCH, 2X RGCH and 1X BSDIS....finishing her championship! James was over the moon that he could finally finish his favorite doe.

James decided to again show Rue this year and she was Best of Breed at the District IV LaMancha Specialty Show.

Rue will be bred to S'more for January kids. 1st doe will be retained. Bucks $600.
