Mardi Gras! A beautiful WHITE baby (that is always our favorite here), the last set of kids born this year. Gem is the last moment daughter, sired by GCH Valegro and maybe the best of that cross yet (to be determined). After losing Moment last fall and Bella this spring, we decided to keep Mardi and her genetic sister Mai Jaguar to continue the line, Moment's has been the most consistent for us! The reverse breeding of Comet back on the Valegro daughters is a breeding we were excited to try, it worked so well the other way around (Valegro, on Comet daughters) . So far, they are freshening amazing.
Mardi was our FIRST kid (of 4) to receive her dry leg at the Southern browsers show in Mississippi! She has such strength and power and such a rear end. She has the looks to be an amazing milker just like her dam and maternal line.
Update- she freshened pretty darn amazing, with a single buck and did almost 11# on her first test! She is a hard worker with an easy personality. She did us proud as our top placing doe at nationals, 6th place yearling milker with THIRD udder AND she is our first goat to make the ELITE doe list as a homebred!
This girl! We took her out to her first show and she was 2x GCH, 1X BOB and 1x Reserve (to her dam) and finished! Grand and BOB under Bob Bartholemew and Grand under Will Keech! She is now GCH (pending)! At nationals she as 9th place two year old and she is ELITE again for 2022!
