Summer 2018:

Snowflake has moved on to another herd. We wish Snowflake and her new people all the best.

Summer 2017:

Snowflake is proving herself to be a productive addition to our milking string.  She waits patiently for her turn in the parlor, then jumps right up and waits to be milked.  She milks out easily from a very productive and well attached udder. 

Snowflake was awarded her Elite Doe status last year.

Summer 2016:

Snowflake is a bit of a moose, a big girl. She freshened with twins this year and earned her milking star easily.

Congratulations to Snowflake for earning her Superior Genetics Title!

Summer 2015:

Snowflake is a dry yearling now. She will be bred this fall and hopefully start her career next spring. We are very anxious to see how she does.

Summer 2014:

Snowflake’s mom, Brill, is a powerhouse milker, and her older sister, Tally, is a Top Ten Breed Leader in both milk and butterfat production.  Not to mention that Snowflake is overly covered in moon spots and has black ears, and friendly attitude.  It will be very interesting watching this girl’s career.

Snowflake was the third born of quadruplet doelings.
