Dam: QMF IV’s Inquisition, spring 2021. Milking 11+lbs.

 

At some point winter 2022, Kissie suffered severe injury to her right rear hock, suspect rupture of a collateral ligament meaning she has no stability in her right hock. Late pregnancy was extremely difficult for her mobility. The cause is likely both due to her carrying twins, as well as being overweight (my fault), and possibly slip/fall on ice is my suspect. She struggled to walk and jump on the milk stand at end of pregnancy, and still hesitates and has to think about jumping up *EVERY* time for milking. She can do it, but this injury will likely predispose her to early onset arthritis in that limb, and every future pregancy will likely add even more stress to that joint.   Due to her difficulty carrying twins with this injury, I have decided she will not be bred again or sold and instead will likely be butchered as I don’t keep pets in my herd and it would be a disservice to her . It is such an immense shame as there is much to LOVE about this polled doe. She is a high casein carrier, She is exceptionally wide in her chest and between her hocks, but due to the injury she has a very odd gait and steep rump posture in the rear but she is not inherently structured this way in my opinion. Her rear udder is HIGH, probably the best in my herd, and so, so wide to fill that wide rump. My only compliant is that I wish she had more foreudder extension. She is producing quite well despite injury, and has been very healthy otherwise.
