This doe is very special! When her dam freshened we thought she was one of the nicest yearling prospects we had in awhile (the appraiser agreed)! So it made sense to keep her first single daughter out of Valegro. Bella is a 3/4 sister to Verdades the 2017 Spotlight sale Consignment.
Bella freshened better than we could imagine! She is long, tall and lovely! The first of the Valegro does to freshen for us, she has a beautiful long milky foreudder that scored "42" as a yearling and is very real! She is long, tall, correct and milky with a velvet textured udder.
As a second freshener Bella took took no prisoners! At her first show out she was 3x GCH finishing her championship! And her dam was 3X Best of Breed and 3X best in Show! Judges remarked they just can not wait to see her in another two years even more mature!
It is with a heavy heart that we lost Bella to a perforated abomasal ulcer 24 hours after kidding in 2020. What an amazing doe she was, gone too soon. Above is a week before kidding as a third freshener. We miss this doe every single day but are so glad to have her daughter Belladonna, her son Matterhorn and now her granddaughters Mirage and Bella Luna to carry on her legacy.
