Shekinah-2014
Shekinah 2014. 6-year old, 5th freshener. Sorry for the poor quality of the picture, it was taken with my cell phone and it is the best I have from 2014.

Shekinah is retired and will live out the rest of her days as a Lady of Leisure here on our farm ūüôā

Purebred Nubian doe
***DNA on file***
DOB: 04/11/2008
ADGA #N001440225

#2 on the State of Michigan 2013 DHIR Honor Roll for  milk, butterfat & protein 

Earned SG status in September 2013

Shekinah has strong “milking” and “show ring” bloodlines behind her – including 3 ELITE BUCKS:

++*B SGCH Kismet Marvins Smooth Operator,
++*B SGCH Hallcienda Frosty Marvin, and
+*B SGCH H-Homestead Spotted Elk

She is long bodied, has nice leg placement¬†and angulation. ¬†I really like how solid and long her¬†body is, her ears are an improvement over her dam’s,¬†as they go over an inch past her nose. She has a nice¬†roman nose, and she is really smart, plus she’s very¬†friendly and easy to work with. Shekinah is Galathea’s¬†2008 daughter. ¬†We are so pleased with her dam that we¬†retained Shekinah for our herd, and we are¬†so glad we did!

She is so much like her half sister, Sonador, that I have to look closely at times to tell them apart.

Shekinah has tested negative for CAE, CL, Johne’s and Brucella. ¬†We test annually for CAE.

Tested G6S Normal on June 9th, 2011

Shekinah as a 4-year old, 4th Freshener. Look at that Fore Udder – beautiful! ¬†She wasn’t standing very nicely for me, but you can see she looks amazing at only 6 days fresh!!!

Shekinah as a yearling, First Freshener (2009)
Shekinah as a yearling, First Freshener. She has a beautiful mammary: nice medial, excellent attachment all around, and has a high rear udder at 2 1/2 inches below the vulva. I would like to see her teat placement a bit more centered, but they are extremely easy to milk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a rear pic of Shekinah as a young doeling. See how her udder filled in that beautiful, arched escutcheon area?? ¬†ūüôā
