G6S Normal by Parentage

TRILLIUM - what a doe! She has WONDERFUL conformation, with a smooth, level top-line, strong feet and legs, tons of body capacity with a wide chest. She has nice breed character although her ears could be little softer and wider.  To top it all off, Trillium has an absolutely stunning udder.  Socked on TIGHT and very capacious.  Her teats are correctly placed and well shaped.  She milks extremely well for her size giving almost as much as some of the does who are several inches taller than she is.  She gave over 1050#'s of milk in 2011 with a 5.46%BF.  At nine years old, she's giving a steady 6-7# of milk a day!
We retained both of her 2010 bucklings out of Star and they did great things in our herd with their daughters freshening with gorgeous udders that have excellent attachments like Trillium.  We also have two of her daughters in our herd, Marigold and Cami (as well as many granddaugters).

Trillium at 9 years old - still standing on super strong feet and legs, has a perfect topline and her udder is still socked on TIGHT!  Love this doe!

Pictures of Trillium...

Trillium as a baby (these were just too cute - I couldn't pick just one!):

'Trilly' at about three months old.

Trillium as a dry yearling. 

Summer '09 v-show pictures (she did NOT want to cooperate for the side picture!):

Just for fun...

Fall '09 v-show pictures.  As soon as you put the collar on her, she immediately looks worse than in real life!  She is such a pretty, correct doe that these pictures do not do her justice.  They do show her rich, unclipped color though.

Trillium's large, correct, 1st freshening udder.

Trillium's Summer 2010 V-Show pictures (unclipped).  Sadly she got mastitis about 2 weeks into her lactation, so her production was waaay down for these pictures.  And, like her dam, she is NOT photogenic and looks horrible in pictures compared to real life.

A few more pictures from Trillium's v-show photo shoot - she's so pretty!

Trillium's working udder at 6 years old and just a few weeks fresh.  She still has super high, tight attachments - this udder doesn't budge!

Trillium's V-Show pictures Fall, 2014 (7 yrs old and at the end of her lactation)

Trillium's udder in 2015 (8yrs old).  love how her udder is still snugly attached and holding up very well.

Trillium's Summer 2015 v-show pictures.  This is her 6th freshening.

Trillium's udder at 9 years old.  Last picture is after milking with an empty udder.  I like how you can see her very nice lateral attachments in this picture.
