Ebony’s Progeny in our Herd
Ebony is an AI breeding out of our Aurora and the absolutely amazing *Elite Sire*, SGCH +*B J&R Spirit’s HT-K Kaitai! I chose Kaitai in the hopes of adding width and stacking more production, and I’m excited to say that she freshened with a gorgeous, well attached mammary system and she is milking like a champ!
2019: Ebony scored an Excellent in Udder Texture, and Very Good in Rear Legs, Rump, Dairy Strength, and Mammary. (LA: September 14, 2019)
2023: Ebony was scored at 5 days fresh. She scored Excellent in Dairy Strength. Very Good in General Appearance, Body Capacity, and Mammary system. Very Good in Front & Rear Legs, Back, and Rump.
Now if I can just get her to pose nicely for a decent picture it would be amazing! 😉
