Panache’s arrival was a great way to start 2016. This pedigree is packed with some of my very favorite Cherry Glen animals. As a FF, I felt she is still in need of a lot of maturity, though when appraised as a FF yearling I am extremely pleased with her score. Structurally, there is not much to complain about, she just needs to gain capacity with maturity. Her traits are all +, V, or E. and I’ve learned I need to not despair over young stock and instead give them some time and patience. After all, ideal animals are based on a 4-5 year old animal, not a ‘baby’ at just a year of age. 😉 She is extremely easy to milk with a very soft, pliable udder and large orifices that make milking her either by hand or machine a dream. She peaked high and fast, and while she kept on at a respectable amount for a first freshening animal, I am hoping for better persistence and quantity on future lactations. She likely has a spot in this herd for years yet.
2018 Freshening shows promise, but she is still a gangly 2 year old and needs maturity. I believe she will be one worth waiting for with time.
2019 The herd has moved to the amazing care at QMF farm, and a few kinks had to be worked out in the new dynamic herd with many more does than ever previous. The does freshened very strong but shortly thereafter, herdwide decreases in production and body condition were seen, which we attributed was due to poor hay quality having only a first cut hay available. We had the quantity, but not the quality needed for peak production. Coupled with a very wet spring and summer, ability to cut new hay to make up the deficit was nearly impossible for a long time. We scrambled to correct and began chaffhaye and alfalfa pellets but the insult came at a critical point in lactation and does across the board from both herds just didn’t bounce back. It’s all a learning curve plus a large factor of the growing seasons 2018-2019 – together the two herds are hoping positive changes were made and really hopeful for better luck in hay for 2020! We knew there would be growing pains, so this is just a hiccup. 🙂 Panache is improving structurally, but her rear udder is low – where did that come from in her star-studded pedigree? 😀 Goat genetics are funny like that. Functionally she’s just fine, still staying around as a brood doe.
DAM: SG Caprice Acres Glitterati 2*M, 03-03 VVEE 90. “Sydney” or “Syd” as we know her is a big, structurally sound doe with a beautifully well attached udder. She was immature for her yearling appraisal as a FF, and is improving as I’d hoped. She really needed a freshening with multiples and some maturity, and she finally kidded triplets and it made a distinct improvement on her production and body capacity. This is evidenced as a 4yo 3rd fresh in 2017 when she appraised EX90 and earned her SG status. She surpassed that achievement even in 2018, having quads in March, peaking at 15.3# of milk, and appraising EEVE 91 for her 5 year old permanent score. Click her name to go to her page!
