Amethyst is the second polled doe born at Bramblestone Farm that we’ve retained, and I’m excited about how she’s maturing.
In her first linear appraisal as a dry yearling, the appraiser was very complimentary about how she’s put together, and in her second as a first freshener, she scored an 84. That excellent for a first freshener, and it’s the best any of our first fresheners had done – until Sun Tea really excelled! Amethyst has also earned her milking stars in both AGS and ADGA as a first freshener and was Reserve Grand Champion (right behind Sun Tea as Grand) in her second show.
In addition to already earning her milking stars, she has a beautifully attached udder that is quite capacious for a first freshener.
She’s the grand-daughter of our very first doe, Bit ‘O’ Honey, who is very conformationally correct (Honey earned her Superior Genetics designation, milking stars as a 2nd freshener, and an 89 in linear appraisal as a 3rd freshener).
Her dam, Ruby, earned her 1st Championship leg, her milking stars, and scored an 87 in linear appraisal as a third freshener. So, it’s not really surprising that Amethyst is developing so beautifully.
The photo below is of her at about three months.
