EMMA, as we call her, is a beautiful red doe with a white belt and frosted ears and nose. I thought I wouldn't be needing any more does to add to my herd... Until I saw Emma! Star only gave us one doeling in 2008 so when I had an opportunity to buy one of his daughters from another farm, I couldn't resist. Emma has lovely breed character and conformation. She is very long bodied with correct feet and legs and a strong topline. Her dam is a great milker giving nearly 8 lbs (1 gallon) of milk a day. Her sire, Star, also comes from a line of great milkers. Emma has a beautiful udder that is very soft and capacious.  Her teats are long and very easy to milk.  She is a wonderful milker giving about 5-7 lbs a day.

Here is what one of the Judges of the Summer 2010 V-show said about Emma:

"This is a very stylish doe showing lots of desirable straits. Too bad she did not have some competition. In General Appearance this doe excels in a very strong topline being very level from chine to rump. Her length and height to the rump adds to her general appearance points.  She excels in the front end assembly being smoothly blended from withers to shoulders and blends smoothly into the brisket. She also exhibits a softer more lustrous hair coat. She has an uphill stance and shows increasing dept of body back towards a refined flank. Adding to that Body Capacity, she is deep in the hearth girth. In Dairy Character she has greater angularity throughout being sharper from hip to pins. Her longer leaner neck adds to her feminity and she shows more openness and is freer from coarseness. Her mammary system has the advantage of be a more correctly shaped udder showing a strong medial suspensory ligament and correctly shaped and placed teats. This would be the doe I would take home, and her owner is to be commended for the fine breeding they obviously have committed to."

A totally not set up picture of Emma...  Ignore the silly mouth from chewing cud and notice the level topline, well shaped udder (even with only 8 hours of milk), sharp withers, length of body and correct feet and legs.
