LUNA is a wonderful combination of her parents with smooth blending and lovely breed character.  I just LOVE this doe! She has stunning conformation with lots of width throughout, a smooth topline, and strong feet and legs. Although her coloring may not be as flashy as some of the others, her quality and conformation make you notice her, and her personality is super sweet.  Her dam is a very good milker with a wonderfully correct udder.  She gives nearly a gallon of milk a day! Her sire also has great milking lines. Luna freshened with an udder to match her lovely conformation.  It is socked on TIGHT with excellent attachments, medial and has a good shape and well placed teats.  I couldn't be happier with her udder.  She also milks quite well at over 4#/day as a 2 year old.  She came into her milk as a 2 year old 2nd freshener and is giving about 5 lbs of milk. Her udder doesn't photograph very well, but you can see some pictures at the bottom of this page.  You can also see pictures of her full sister's udder - VERY nice!

Summer 2011 V-show pictures (I just LOVE this doeling!):

Luna first freshening udder.  It does NOT photograph well and is much nicer in person.

Luna's sister, Lunar Maria (AKA 'Annie'), also freshened as a yearling with a GOREGOUS udder!  Annie's owner, Rebecca, shared these photos of Annie's gorgeous ff udder:

A few more pictures of this lovely little lady:

 

Luna's sister, Annie's udder as a 2nd freshener:

Luna's 2nd freshening udder, not clipped and only 10 hours of milk.  Her udder still does NOT photograph well - it looks so much better in person.  The whited out one shows her capacity better - I think her udder is so wide that it makes it look small when you don't see the whole goat. 

FINALLY, some pictures that start to show how nice her udder is!!!  These pictures were a week or so after the others.  Still only about 10 hours of milk...
