THUNDER was purchased primarily because of his dam's amazing milk production.  She is on the taller side of MiniNubians (29"), but she produces more milk than many larger full size Nubians peaking at almost 2 gallons (16#) in one day!!! She gave 9.8#, 10.8# and 11.7# on her milk test days in 2016.  Thunder has lots of milk on his sire's side as well.  Add to all that milk good conformation with strong feet and legs, excellent length of body, width and good breed character for a 2nd gen and this boy is just about everything I could want in a herdsire.  His dam has a nice udder with a strong medial, well placed and sized teats and amazing capacity.  Her udder has some mastitis damage on one side, so is uneven in pictures, but you can still get an idea of how nice it was. His 3/4 sister Bambi (same sire and their dams are full sisters) has a super well attached udder and LOTS of milk. Giving a gallon a day as a first freshener!
