SG Land of Havilah ShekinahGlory 2*M

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.

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??  🙂
