We retained Brandy from a Moonshine kidding in 2015. Brandy has by far proven to be one of the strongest does in our herd. She stands very correct and shows lots of dairy character, especially depth of body. Her rump and brisket are something to talk about! Her udder shows larger capacity compared to her dam. Her teats are on the larger side for a Nigerian and are easily milkable. She kidded out with buck/doe twins in 2018 and kidded out this spring in 2021 with quads, three does and a buck. This doe knows her job now and does it well, wanting to be milked and is a pleasure on the stand both personality wise and with ease of milking. She is starting to be more like her grandmother as she ages, which makes me really happy. Brandy is a "lifer" here on the farm and we love her so much!

** Brandy is confirmed bred for April 2022 kids. We have ultimately decided that this will likely be her last kidding, then we will be retiring her. **

I am so glad that we were able to get Brandy scored in 2021 after running into some issues with reading tattoos and microchip fun. It was an absolute shock to me when she scored a VVEV 86. She earned an E in body and was commended for perfect teat placement, two traits which she gets from her dam. Brandy is my first home grown doe and has blown me away this year as this was my first year taking her out, which makes this very special. I couldn't be any happier with how she has performed!
