Merry’s dam, Tuscan Sun, has lots of dairy character, spring of rib, angularity, strong front end assembly, straight front legs, with nice tight toes. She has large milkable teats and wonderful capacity and udder texture.
Merry’s sire, CRF Castle Rock Harvest Moon *S, has consistently produced kids that show very nice general appearance, being long bodied and flat boned. His daughters have nice MSL’s , teat placement, rear udder height, texture, and attachment.
Merry is long, level, with wonderful body capacity! Her third freshening udder was better than I could have hoped! She has a very well attached udder with large, milkable teats, with very open orifices. Merry earned the coveted EEEE 91 LA score in 2015! She also earned E’s in head, front and rear legs, with V’s in shoulder assembly, back, udder texture, and rump. She could use some improvement in rear feet as she is a bit shallow in the heel. I can work with that though! We absolutely love this doe and plan on retaining many more daughters! She is everything we want to see in our herd.
Unfortunately we lost our beloved Merry in the fall of 2016. She left a hole in our herd that cannot be replaced. We are very thankful to have her offspring in our herd and will continue to watch them follow in her footsteps.
