Shekinah is retired and will live out the rest of her days as a Lady of Leisure here on our farm 🙂
Purebred Nubian doe
***DNA on file***
#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.
