Peaches was our first goat ever! She has a great personality, loving, a great mother, and she is a diva. She has a very nice mammary system with a capacious udder, great tight attachments, good teat placement, and great orifices. She can hold a lot in that udder! It matured absolutely beautifully with her 4th freshening and even better with her 5th! She has great depth to her body, super wide, is super hardy as we rarely have to do much with her, and kids with ease! She’s kidded up to 8# kids and they slip out like butter. Exceptional mothering qualities as well.
We look to improve her topline and give a little more length in the neck as well as breed character in the head when we breed her. As far as her udder, we look to raise it higher, smooth the fore, and enlarge her teats a bit. We hope that her good milking attributes will come forth in her children. She is one of the foundations of our minis.
Unfortunately, I don’t have pics of her relative’s udders and not the best of her dam’s as I haven’t been able to aquire them. She was not purchased with the intent of breeding up minis at the time. But she’s starting the line with her own gorgeous udder. We are determined to get her milk star in 2021. The first year we had to dry off too soon, this last year she was a houdini at making sure her babies got milk when separated, so it altered her milk test results, unfortunately. I know she can make SO much more but it was a battle keeping her from feeding her kids any way she could!! In 2021 she has surpassed all her previous records, milking over 5# each morning while still nursing her bucklings during the day! We expect her milk star this year!
Udder above is her 5F udder at 8 weeks post kidding. Below is the only pic of dam’s udder we had.
