Midas is a gorgeous buck and I absolutely had to keep him as our Junior Herdsire.
He is a combination of two really nice bloodlines within our herd, and I am so pleased with this cross that I plan to repeat it as many times as God blesses us with the presence of both Midas’ parents in our herd.
His sire is our very own, *B Land of Havilah ATL Triumph. Triumph is out of our doe, SG Land of Havilah ShekinahGlory 2*M, LA: 06-03 VG88 VEEV. Shekinah is retired now, but reigned as our strongest doe for many years. Shekinah has earned many awards and was second place on the Michigan DHIR Honor Roll a few years ago. Triumph’s sire via artificial insemination is SGCH +*B Wingwood Farm Finding Atlantis, LA: 03-05 EX91 VEE.
Midas’ dam is our Land of Havilah MC Red Clover. She was sold via reservation before she was born, and I was thrilled when it fell through and I was able to keep her in our herd! Clover is maturing into a beautiful doe, and I hope to get her on DHIR (milk test) and get her appraised again this year.
