Gertie has been a farm favorite since day one. She is easy to milk, capacious, and has lovely soft dairy skin.
She had triplets this past freshening, and was a little pulled down during LA where the above pictures were taken, but it still shows her beautiful build and udder.
Gertie's dam is a really lovely doe who has earned herself a permanent home at Dill's, no easy feat! Her name is Dill's GA Whimsy 3*M, and she scored a VEEE 90 on her 2017 LA. Whimy's sire is SG Dill's BF Genuine Article *S, +*B and her dam is Dill's XM Pansy 2*M

Gertie's sire is a buck I have long admired, and I am so pleased to have his genetics in our herd. His name is Dill's D Two-Step +*B.

and his Dam was SGCH NC PromisedLand Pal Macarena 5*M
Ellen, his breeder, had this to say about this wonderfully productive buck. ( Side note, guess who's semen was sent on to be part of a program in Australia! How amazing is that??)
This buck is a
combination of some of the BEST genetics the Nigerian Dwarf breed has to
offer along with years worth of breeding for us here at Dill's. He goes
back to some of the finest animals the Nigerian Dwarf breed has ever
produced in both the show ring and the milk pail. His dam was one of the
first Nigerians to earn her Superior Genetics designation. Between
Macarena & our Dill's Derringer daughters, they have multiple Grand
Champion awards, Best of Breed awards, Best Udder awards, Best in Show
as well as Excellent Linear Appraisal scores. Two-Step's dam Macarena
was 1st place, 1st udder at 2 ADGA National Shows as a 2 year old and as
a 4 year old. His sire's daughters have been 1st Place Get of Sire on
numerous occasions including at the 2012 ADGA National Show. Now, if
that's not pretty enough for you, I don't know what is!
