Spring 2014:Princess has headed to a new home to be a foundation doe for a developing mini-Nubian herd. The easier life at a smaller place will be good for the old gal. But that doesn't mean that we won't miss her...A LOT.
The Princess is still going strong. She is milking great and looking fine. She looks much younger than a 6 year old. It's hard to believe that she isn't still a youngster.
Princess earned her USDA Elite Doe title this year.
Can Princess really be 5 years old already? I still remember when she was a kid. How fast time flies. Princess got her final LA score of 91 EEEE. She is a powerful, good looking doe that does a great job of putting milk in the pail.
Princess is really cranking out the milk this year and making us work double time making cheese!. She is taking her job seriously. She is a beautiful, long doe, very dairy, and fun to have around.
Princess is maturing nicely and doing well in the milking parlor. She is a big contributor and a fun girl to hang around with.
Princess is, indeed, growing into a beauty! She earned her Superior Genetics title and milking star last year, scored as Excellent on this year's Linear Appraisal, is milking very well as a 2 year old, and she is looking good out there on her ranch. Good looks and lots of production - what more could we want?
Princess still considers herself to be royalty at times but is content to also join the rest of the production crew for morning and evening milking. She is growing well and looks like she will be a beauty.
July 2007 update:
It didn't take this little girl long to let us know that she was royalty. She was born screaming her demands. She had to stay in the house for a couple days of pampering because she had been stressed during delivery. During that time she demanded attention and special treatment. Her mom, Poppy, is quite a regal girl so we guess it makes sense that the daughter is too. THE Princess is a colorful, moon spotted kid with tons of potential.
