We are SO thrilled to be able to bring this girl back home!  I was really hoping for a doeling out of Sapphire X Moonbeam in 2015, but she gave us twin bucks and then we lost Sapphire that summer due to a freak accident.  I contacted Colleen, to whom I had sold the only doeling from a previous Sapphire X Moonbeam breeding and she was willing to sell her back to me!  SO excited to bring this lovely girl back home.  She is a combination of our nicest udder genetics and highest milk producers.  She has lovely breed character with long, wide, pendulous ears and a roman nose.

Cali's udder is everything I hoped from this breeding.  Incredible capacity, attachments, teat size and placement, the whole package.  And her production is excellent as well.  She peaked at 10# her second freshening giving a steady 7-8# the rest of the time! Cali is the new family favorite to milk as she is SO easy to milk it only takes seconds to milk her even when she is giving more than most of the others. We retained 2 of her 2016 kids - Eclipse (doeling) and Remmy (buckling).  We also retained one of her 2017 quads, Maggie.

Pictures of Cali...

As a baby:

As a dry 3 year old:

Cali had a very rough time after her first freshening at 4 years old with huge triplets (8.5#, 7.5# and 6#), but even though she's not milking to her full potential, you can see she has a lovely udder.  These pictures really don't do it justice, but you can at least get a good idea.

Cali after kidding quads.  I love her udder.  It is extremely easy to milk, well attached and VERY capacious (she gives a gallon a day regularly)

More pictures from 2017.  She is SO lovely in person and we just could NOT capture it on camera at all.  So, here are a bunch of pictures that each catch a little of it, but all her beauty in one picture.
