Breeding Plans

Red is exposed to Caprice Acres Disco Volante *B for 2018 March kids! 

This is a stronger linebreeding than I normally do, on a foundation doe of mine - SG Grace-Hill Magnolia 1*M.  Magnolia had a low appraisal score her last year as she recovered from parasitism and my Father and I were still figuring out our management with me spending most of my time away from the farm. Her appraisal score may be dissapointingly low that year due to her condition, but look at her milk production record from that same year to know she was a powerhouse doe! :) Magnolia was successfully bred AI the next two years, but aborted both times and was sacrificed to necropsy to find out why - she had a non-contagious deposition of faulty protein in her uterus (amyloidosis).

Very excited to keep this doeling. This pedigree is from very strong show lines on both sides, as well as production. Elite sires, 2x Premier Sires, and SG/CH does with high appraisals. This doe kid has a lot of potential and I'm excited to watch her grow and develop. Whenever I see her I am amazed by her levelness.
