I sold both Trillium's 2014 doelings out of Goldstone and I SO regretted it, so I decided to repeat the breeding and hope for doelings.  And I got them!  Marigold has lovely conformation from both parents, a strong milk background from both parents and an absolutely heart stealing face!  She got her sire's lovely breed character and is just over all plain stunning. Her dam is one of our best milkers even though she is one of the shortest does.  She has a socked on, super well attached udder. At 9 yeras old she is milking a strong 7#/day (and she's only 24"tall!) with an udder that is still very well attached.  Marigold's maternal half sister, Cami, kidded for the first time in 2015 and has the very best first freshening udder I have ever seen.  Marigold freshened as a yearling with a gorgeous single doeling and an udder that is very capacious, soft and correct with long, very easy to milk teats. I would like to see stronger attachments on her udder.  We are retaining her daughter, Blossom who is sired by Freddy. We are also retaining Honeysuckle, her 2017 doeling out of Honey Pot.
