G6S Normal by Parentage

CRISSY is a beautiful chocolate doe - the one doe out of Ivory's sextuplets. Although she has a lot of control over her ears, they are long, soft, wide and well shaped. Crissy has beautiful conformation and a special personality. Crissy's dam is a very good milker with a lovely udder and is easy to milk. Crissy's sire also comes from great milk lines, and Crissy's first freshening started off with great production - first test had 5#'s of milk and 5.2% BF!  She ended up getting bred back earlier than planned so her lactation was not long enough to earn her milk star, but she earned it in a one day test in 2012.  Her following freshenings have been even better.  She milks heavily through her whole lactation giving over a gallon (8#'s) much of the time.  Crissy's udder is very soft, with tons of capacity.  Her udder is tightly attached, well shaped, and wide.  Her teats are nice & long and extremely easy-to-milk. The main thing I would like to improve in her udder is a stronger medial suspensory ligament which would also help her teats point more correctly down.  Other than that though, I am extremely happy with Crissy's udder.  Crissy is a family favorite for milking - she has a great will to milk and is usually still giving lots when the other does are starting to dry up.  We have retained one of her quad doelings from 2016 - Nana.

Crissy is retired due to a kidding injury in 2016.  We will be milking her as long as she continues to produce. She is still going strong at 371 days in milk with a steady 1/2 gallon per day (4#).

 MiniNubain Milker

Crissy a few days after her first freshening.  I love that deep, long body, correctly shaped udder, sharp withers, well-blended shoulders, correct legs.....  Only things I'd change much are teat placement/stronger medial, and breed character.
