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 this
spring with a huge single doe kid and it took her forever to snap back.
Consequently she has not milked like she has in the past, although
nothing has affected her appetite. We feel 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 will be bred to Win
for February kids.
1st doe will be retained. 2nd doe and bucks $800.
