Lacey

Below are pictured a few of Lacey's beautiful kids by Whiskey. She is terribly missed and will make a lasting impact on my herd.
She is the dam to our incredible herd sire Sue, and is a beautiful all over doe. We have retained a 2015 daughter from Whiskey, and she is bred back for 2016.

Her dam, GCH Rosasharn's TL Zenith 3*M, is just a beautiful all over doe.  Her breeder, Kalee at Algedi Farm had this to say about Zenith- 

 

"Zenith is a true miniature dairy goat, and brings attention to herself where ever she goes.  She's very refined and elegant, with a long body, uphill and level topline, a sleek neck that leads to a beautiful, correct head, and flat, open ribs.  She's basically dripping with dairy character, and many judges have commented she's what a Nigerian should look like.  She stands on strong feet and legs - pasterns perky, and toes tight - even at eight years old.  She does have a slight toe out on her forelegs, and I wouldn't mind a tad more rear angulation.  Zenith does lack overall body capacity and width, something she's been ever so slowly adding with age, but I'm not complaining, as at eight and having twenty-eight kids from seven freshenings, she still looks like a four year old.  Her udder has been called "phenomenal" by judges, and it's easy to see why.  Zenith boasts a high rear udder, broad area of attachment, strong lateral attachments, a tight medial ligament, plenty of capacity while it is still high above her hocks, and decent texture.  I wish she had larger teats and orifices, however.  While she does have nice extension to her foreudder, unfortunately she does have a slight pocket and shelf.  In 2008 she kidded with quintuplets, all of which survived and stayed on their dam.  Even with feeding the small army, she still produces 1/3-1/2 of cup of excess milk twice a day.  Makes me wish she was on milk test that year!

2011 Update: Zenith has recovered amazingly well, and is back in the show ring racking up the BOBs (she won five rings out of eight, forfeiting two to herdmate Tupelo Honey, and one to daughter, Capella)!  Our vet did a wonderful job, Zenith shows almost no sign of the ordeal - only the slightest trace of a scar mars her hide.  She kidded with quads this spring, has held onto her body conditioning beautifully, and has had no problems with bloat.  "

 

 

 

 

5th Fresh udder

Lacey's sire is a tremendous buck in his own right. Her sire, Algedi Farm MB Manuka Honey, is a of the immortal SGCH Rosasharn's UMT Tupelo Honey EEEE 91, 3 x BDIS and his sire is Twin Creeks BW Montego Bay ++*. He is got a rash of beautiful daughters, who I am sure will be finishing soon, and doing awesome things.
