MISTY is one of my favorite does, she is so friendly and loving that she is just irresistible. Not to mention that her coloring and conformation make her gorgeous!  Misty's ears are only 2/3rd's drop, but she makes up for her lack in breed character with all her other strengths. Her dam had a huge udder and gave tons of milk - she peaked at 10# as a 3 year old! Misty has a nice udder with tons of capacity and easy-to-milk teats.  She could use stronger lateral attachments and a smoother foreudder.  She is an excellent milker giving about 6-8 lbs of very rich milk per day and is a sweetheart on the milk stand.  Misty has the richest milk in our herd with very high butterfat - an average of 6.63% in 2009 with the highest test coming back at 10.57%!!!  Misty is now in retirement enjoying a well deserved rest from kidding and milking.

Misty's personality is so funny.  She has a good deal of control over her ears which makes her QUITE expressive.  She LOVES people and also enjoys taking care of kids - she helps with every birth here on the farm.  She'll even 'steal' another doe's kids if they let her. 

At MDGA's '08 virtual goat show, here is what the judge said about her when choosing Misty as Best Doe in Show:  "For the best in show Mini dairy goat milker, my selection was based on the doe I felt was the total package. The doe who best exemplifies what a dairy goat is supposed to look like and what they are bred to do. If you look at the Grands in each breed you will see one who has the triangle wedginess we talk about from the sharp withers down the back to rump from the top view. She has the wedginess from the side view from the front end to increasing depth to the rear barrel. She has the most mammary capacity [milk] She has the age and number of lactations to make her worth invaluable and she has the strength and power to sustain herself and her years she has put in. Of course, I am talking about the MiniNubian:)." (see Misty's '08 pictures below)
