Our 1st GENERATION DOE'S
MilkMaidRanch E Montego Bay
Montego is such a nice doe. I milked her with her 1st freshening. Her udder is rounder and has the size teats I like for hand milking. She is a girl that loves the milk stand & produces 3 quarts. Being a doe producer, I'm still waiting on a buckling from her, hoping for a Polled one. We have retained 2 of her daughters(Memphis Belle & Dee). She's bred to Cabri for a late Dec. 2016 kid.
Montego Bay was in the Summer V-Show with MDGA. The judges said this about her:
**Judge Jean Lucas: "Another single entry. I am placing her first. This doe is strong in body capacity, having depth in the chest and carried back into the flank. The mammary is well attached both fore and rear, showing good capacity."
**Judge Todd Biddle: "Another single entry in our AOM division, 5 and over class, but a good strong doe when viewing body capacity. She is wide chested, and shows increasing depth from point of elbow back to her flank. I also recognize the height of her rear udder attachment." Montego also was Reserve Champion under Jean Lucas.

MilkMaidRanch Nash's Silhouette
1st Generation, 4th Freshener, 28.5" tall, production is 1 gallon, 1 quart & 1 cup per day
Silly is the daughter to Nodaway ER Arwen(photo right) and Ivy Gables OB Nashville. One of triplets, she is long legged and has the personality of her dam which I adore. Silly is the image of Nash, therefore her name. I expect some good udders on her daughters. I have to say Silly was somewhat of an ugly duckling for over a year. Never happy with the photo's till she matured. She was worth the wait and has come into her own growing wise. The picture of her udder was taken on 3/14/13 and her 1st freshening was in Dec. 2012. In Nov. 2015 she had twin doelings and both are Cou Blanc and retained for breeding. She is now bred to Deuce for March kids. On this date: 11/18/16, she is still being milked and producing 10 cups per day, her last kidding was a year ago this month.
Grand Champion & Best Doe In Show Summer V Show with MDGA
Silly was in the summer V-Show with MDGA and this is what the judge had to say about her: Judge Todd Biddle: "In our AOM 3 years and under 4 class, we have a single entry. She is worthy of blue recognition on her merits of dairy strength and mammary system. I appreciate her openness of rib and pleasing shape, width, and height to the rear udder." She also was Grand Champion in the AOM classes under Jean Lucas.
Silly was in the Fall V Show with MDGA as well and this is what the judges said - Tamara Taylor said: Doe 2 has the advantage in General Appearance in that she is a longer bodied, longer necked doe. She is not only longer in the rump but also more level. She is also more open in the hind legs, showing greater width between the hocks. And from Tim Flickinger - 2 over one for her length of loin and rump. Blending more smoothly into front end assembly and also strength to rear pasterns. Reserve CH AOM Sr doe comes from the over 2 dry class. She maintains so much general appearance over the remaining does it out weighs the what mammaries are present in the other does and the lack of capacity/ lateral attachment the does that are milking exhibit. She is longer and leveler in topline and shows more angulation throughout

MilkMaidRanch P Aruba
Aruba was my favorite. I have a rule(which are meant to be broken) that I don't milk a first freshener. When I weaned Aruba's first kid who is Gaston(now lives in AR), I was very happy with her udder. So much so that I decided to milk her. I was elated how she took to the milk stand from the first time. Her dam is with the Refer. doe's(Serenade, scroll down) & also on the "Dev. Mini-Alpine's" page. As you look at the picture of Aruba's udder and the attachment on her hind end you'll see why I loved this girl. The photo of her udder was taken in March 2012 from her 5th freshening in Dec. 2011 & you can see the skin where it attaches. She also has passed it onto her daughters and granddaughters. With her death on Dec 29, 2013, ARUBA will be in my heart till the day I die.

Serenade was Aruba's dam. She had a wonderful udder which is where Aruba got her hind attachment.
Sadly, she is no longer with us.
