Silvermist is the third doe born at Bramblestone that we retained, and we think she’s going to be terrific. Her dam has done really well at milk production (she’s the reason we decided to go on milk production testing this year, and she easily earned her milk production stars in both ADGA and AGS) and her sire always improves udder conformation rather spectacularly (click on his link to see an example of how he improves udders), so we expect that she’ll be both very good at producing milk and have a beautiful udder.
Conformationally, she’s more elegant, refined, and longer than her dam, and I really wish she’d gone to the show with the rest of the youngsters last spring (she had watery eyes that day, and I didn’t want to chance bringing her – but it turned out to be nothing more than watery eyes). Taylor Quinn was Reserve Grand Champion Junior doe right behind Pearl Tea as Grand Champion, but I suspect Silvermist would have taken the Reserve Champion title if she’d been there.
The reason I think Silvermist would have been Reserve Grand Champion if she’d been there, is that she did better in linear appraisal than Taylor Quinn, but not quite as good as Pearl Tea.
She’s got some pretty spectacular ancestors in her pedigree from both a milk production and show perspective, so it’s going to be exciting to see how she turns out!
