Linear Appraisal History

2023 – appraisal hopeful! 


Intended to be on official test in 2023


Will be bred Fall 2022 for first freshening in 2023!

Breeding plans:

Bred 11/12/22 to Pleasant-Grove RR Mathias *ELITE* 04-08 VEV 88
Due: 4/11/23
Natural heat with perfect timing. Linebreeding on Mathias, as he is her maternal grandsire as well.

Dam: Caprice Acres PGM Fancy is sired by our ELITE herdsire, Mathias. Her dam was SG Panache, a doe I reluctantly sold due to the endless game of keeping numbers in check. Fancy’s maternal pedigree also includes a foundation doe, SG Glitterati EX91. Fancy has a GORGEOUS high rear udder and her structure is just awesome.

Sire: Chairein Astro Jet *B – Astro Jet is out of a doe of extreme quality and longevity.

Sire’s Dam : SGCH Chairein Yankee Hazel 4*M After achieving the highest LA score possible as a FF (VG89), she has appraised EX93 twice and EX92 a whopping 4 times. In 2021 as an 11 year old, she scored 93 EEEE.  If that was not enough, she has 10 lactations on official test. Her lowest official record is 3790#M, 150F, 126P, and her highest is 5290#M,201#F, 174#P! Three records over 5000lb milk. Simply astonishing. She is pictured as a reference doe on the Mighty Pine Alpines website, scroll down HERE

Europa herself is ‘built different’. Born with two brothers who I reluctantly sold for meat (no space!), they were all consistently large kids, vigorous. The BONE to these is formidable. Could not have asked for better conformation – seriously may be the next game changer for my herd.
