Avalon came to Bramblestone Farm in the spring of 2016 when Wild Wind farm announced that there would be a reduction of their Nigerian Dwarf herd. I have always admired her dam’s udder (it’s quite impressive and she’s a huge milk producer), Avalon’s polled, and her sire is Dragonfly HLJ Calvary so she’s a half-sister to Calligraphy.
Unfortunately, it was thought that Avalon was not pregnant when we purchased her, but she was. As a first freshener, she tried to deliver a huge single buckling, but was unable to do so – he arrived stillborn and we were afraid we’d lost her too. It was pretty rough on Avalon, but she eventually pulled through and is milking like a champion. It was too late for her to participate in milk production testing this year with the other girls, but based on how well she has recovered – she’s taking after her dam and is going to be terrific at milk production.
Avalon’s dam is a beautiful doe, that produces tremendous amounts of milk and has a gorgeous udder. She has never been on milk production test; however, I have witnessed the incredible amount of milk she produces. She also scored an 89 VVVE in her latest linear appraisal as a 4 year old.
On her sire’s side, her grand dam is also the fantastic doe SG ARMCH Flat Rocks Here For The Party *D, with an LA of 90 EEEV!
I am thankful to have this doe in our herd, and am looking forward to seeing what she becomes as she grows up.
