Progeny in Herd:
Piper is the sister of Brandy and while the two are directly related, they both have their own traits which make them unique. Piper is more of an "Old Style" Nigerian, being a bit smaller in stature. Her udder is soft and easy to milk. She is now on her third freshening and I am the most impressed with rear udder attachments, something that appears to be strong throughout all of the does in my herd which isn't a bad trait to have. She still proves to be different from her sister but good in different ways. Piper is a sweet, quiet, and inquisitive girl. We love what she offers us in kidding, producing better than herself, and through her sweet personality!
** Piper kidded out with quads this spring, all blue eyed kids! She had two bucks and two does, one of the does went to a performance home and we retained the other as she is aging and her breeding with Iceman this year worked out well, bringing in some new genetics. I am looking forward to seeing how she does on milk test this year! She will be bred this fall to our new buck, HLFM GR Seattle Sunrise. **
Piper's LA photos from 2021 are displayed, I unfortunately did not get any for 2022 and wish I had. She has made significant improvements in mammary between her fourth and fifth freshening. I am so proud of her and the work she has done for me, with the biggest surprise being her score of +EEV 87 at LA this year. She is my first home grown to lead me with two E's at appraisal. I am thrilled we kept a doe from her this year and anticipate her kids next year being just as gorgeous!
