2022: We retained Noir out of Brandy in 2018 and there is not a single moment that I regret the decision, which lead us to retain another doe from Brandy in 2022 as she is aging. Noir is deep, has a phenomenal brisket, improved rump from her dam and holds excellent placement in her teats. Noir's second freshening udder has been a huge improvement from her first, which is something that I love to see. I was also able to have her LA'd this year and was pleasantly surprised when she scored the highest in the herd as a second freshener, VEVV 88. I am going to be super greedy and likely keep another doe from her this year, but we will see! I just adore her, and to boot, her mannerisms have improved on the milk stand and as now my biggest love bug.

2023: Noir remained dry in 2023 after encountering a weird, unexplainable illness in the fall of 2022 which we now think may have been a rare tick-borne illness, baffling vets and mentors alike across the area. I am thankful she is alive and credit our vets and advice from mentors to her rather quick, 3 week recovery. She has now learned to love me a little more now that I brought her back from the brink of death, which I am grateful for. While she has remained dry, she fully recovered and is able to be bred this fall as confirmed via blood work and through our amazing veterinarian. It's been a pleasure watching her two daughters this year look nice and do well in the show ring. I am thrilled to hopefully keep another lovely doe from her once I get her bred this fall!

2024: Noir suddenly fell very ill again around New Years and declined quickly with similar symptoms as last year. We made the humane and ethical decision to help her cross over to the rainbow bridge. She passed away peacefully in our arms and with a very gentle vet. She was surrounded by all of her herd mates, was given so many treats, cuddles/pets, love, and soft words being spoken to her as she crossed over. We are so thankful for the six years on this earth with her that we had and for the legacy that she leaves behind in Shadow and Siren. RIP to my very best friend, warrior, and first true Little Moon Acres girl. I will eternally be in debt to you for everything that you have given me while on this earth.
