Bit ‘O’ Honey and another doe were the first does chosen for Bramblestone farm; I had them picked out before we saw them in person. However, the first two does that came home were Bit ‘O’ Honey and Tinker Bell – Tinker Bell loves people – she snuggled in and stole our hearts. As Tinker Bell matures, I’m so glad we brought her home. With the many finished champions, four National Champions, and four Milk Production Top Ten producers in her pedigree, Tinker is living up to her potential to produce lots of milk and beautiful kids.
In her second freshening; Tinker Bell again kidded easily, produced two does and a handsome buckling, developed an even nicer udder, and continues to produce lots of milk (she almost keeps up with Hot Tea, who has freshened two more times than Tinker).
She’s the reason we’re on milk test this year, and she easily met the requirements for her milk production stars in both ADGA and AGS! Tinker Bell is easy to love – kids easily, milks quickly and produces lots of it, has a sweet nature, and produces nice looking kids that love people (her kids always seem so affectionate – just like their dam). In 2013 we retained her beautiful doeling, Silvermist.
The photo above is of Tinker Bell in 2012 as a first freshener, and the ones below show how significantly her udder improved from first to second freshening (unfortunately I didn’t have her nicely trimmed for some of those shots). Her second freshening udder is on the left, and her first freshening udder is on the right. Rather significant change.
Again, second freshening udder is on the left and first freshening on the right.
The pictures below are of Tinker Bell at 1 1/2 years and 6 months old.
