Ecstatic is an AI breeding out of our ShekinahGlory 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 extremely well!
Ecstatic scored an Excellent in Udder Texture, and Very Good in Front Legs, Rear Legs, Feet, Dairy Strength, and Mammary. (LA: September 14, 2019)
Unfortunately, we lost our beautiful girl to hardware disease on August 3, 2022. The piece of metal punctured her diaphragm and heart – we only discovered the cause after a field necropsy.

Kaitai descends from an extremely strong dam line that has continually proved itself across several different bloodlines and within many herds. Kaitai is a beautiful dairy buck who is tall, sharp, clean, long and level. He has straight forelegs and square set to his rear legs.
Kaitai is out of SGCH Desert-Willow KE CK Kailia 2*M. Kailia appraised at EX93 EEEE at eight years old! She also won 1st place Aged Doe at the 2009 National Show AND won Reserve Best Udder the same year (at 8 years old)!! The pictures below were taken at the 2009 National Show.

Shekinah was#2 on the State of Michigan 2013 DHIR Honor Roll for milk, butterfat & protein.
Shekinah earned SG status in September 2013.
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. She excels in Dairy strength and was very good in Front and Rear Legs, Feet, Back, Rump, Udder Texture, General Appearance, Body Capacity, and Mammary.
