What a stunning kid Snickers has turned out to be. Sammy was so excited when CitCat gave her triplets for the second year in a row and she picked this little doe as her "keeper kid". And Snickers sure didn't disappoint her.  She was 1X 1st place and 2X 2nd place Senior kid at the Iowa Spring Classic as well as 1X GCH and 2X RGCH. She then followed it up by placing 3rd in a large class of senior kids at the ADGA National Show.

Snickers excels in dairy strength. She is sharp over the withers, long and lean in the neck, smoothly blended in her shoulders with great spring of rib and width in chest and escutcheon. She stands on very correct feet and legs. We just love this doe and can't wait to see her fresh in 2017. Her dam is a very tall, dairy doe with a stunning mammary and lots of udder capacity and will to milk, topping her 2016 lactation at 16# for 3 straight milk tests.

Snickers injured her foot badly last summer (she ripped half of one hoof off and has has to regrow it completely) so it slowed her down. She was unable to attend any shows due to her injury but she continued to milk well throughout her ordeal. She was still limping significantly at appraisal and was NIC for this year.

Snickers made a full recovery from her hoof injury although her hoof will never be normally shaped. She has excelled in the milk pail this year.

What a year Snickers has had in the show ring...despite her severe hoof injury last summer! She has been 4X 1st place 2 year old, 1X 2nd place 2 year old, 3X GCH, 1X BOB and BUOB at the Iowa State Fair. She easily finished her permanent championship this summer and just seems to be getting better as the summer progressed. We simply love this young doe!

Snickers had an extremely difficult kidding in 2019 with a huge single doe kid and it took her forever to snap back. Consequently she did not milked like she has in the past, although nothing has affected her appetite. We felt she is a bit "fluffy" this year due to her lower milk production. We look forward to hopefully a much easier kidding that will get her back into shape next year. This is a huge, powerful doe!

Snickers freshened in February with a lovely set of buck-doe twins and a MUCH easier kidding than last year. She immediately came into heavy milk production topping out at 19# on test day! She has slimmed up from her "fluffy" year and looks much more like her old self. We really love this beautiful doe who is so easy to handle!

Despite every effort we were unable to get Snickers bred last fall and she instead milked through. She had completed over 4200# in her first 305 and she continued to pour out milk throughout her next lactation. We were so sad over this state of affairs with our plans to attend National Show but we decided with her still milking very well, we would take her anyway. And while she didn't top the class, she was still 12th place at nearly 600 days in milk. More importantly, she was awarded the High 305 Milk and Fat and High  Lifetime Milk and Fat awards and....she was named the LaMancha Total Performer....an honor I never even considered winning. We so love this beautiful, productive doe!!

Snickers freshened with a pair of beautiful doe-buck twins out of Hatter. While it was an easy delivery, she didn't seem to reach her usual peak in milk production this year and didn't slim up as much as we would have liked. She was still 1X Best of Breed at the MN Spring Classic but this has been a slow year for her. She is still one of my most favorite does in the herd!

Snickers will be bred to Hatter for March kids $800. 1st doe retained.
