3 Kids Farm FG Ellie May
Gold and White with Blue Eyes
So, we REALLY like this little doe...a lot. Not only is she shaping up to be a very pretty little doe, she puts the milk in the bucket! As a first freshner she peaked at 3.4 lbs and did a great job of maintaining those numbers. This year in her second lactation she peaked at 4.8 lbs per day and again did a great job of maintaining that production in her lactation. She also had a 9.4% Butterfat! This is a lovely doe, definitely a keeper in our eyes. Her LA score this year was VVVV 86
3 Kids Farm VW Ella
Black and White
Ella has been a great little producer, starting her lactation at 4 lbs of milk per day. So far at 92 days in milk she has produced 287 lbs with a 6.6% BF and 4.2% Protein. Her mature equivalent at 305 days is 991 lbs milk, 70 lbs butterfat and 38 lbs protein. She had her first LA score in 2019 as a first freshner of V+++ 82. She definitely has the genetics to be a great little producer. Ella has also been awarded her Superior Genetics designation from ADGA. Her sire is Springwater Virginia Whiskey. His dam, SGCH Pholia Farm RD Meet Virginia VVEE90, was a 2017 Breed Leader (Top Ten) for Butterfat and protein and an elite doe.
3 Kids Farm Whiskey Lullaby
Light Tan Chamoisee with White Spot on Back and Blue Eyes
Lullaby is developing into a lovely doe. She is the daughter of Willow and our buck Whiskey. We think all she needs is a little time, she should continue to improve. Her first freshner LA score was VV+V 85. We plan on keeping this one around for a while and see what she can do!
Springwater DC Raspberry Pie
Black and White
We happen to think Raspberry is a pretty cool little doe! And I think some folks would tend to agree as she has hit the ADGA Elite doe list, and won her Superior Genetics Award. She had a first freshening LA score of VV++83, and of course LA was not done in 2020. Hoping those numbers climb at the next linear appraisal. Her dam, SG FMG DB&R Easy as Pie VEEE 90, is a 2018 breed leader for both protein and BF and an elite doe. At the 2019 National ADGA show she was also awarded the Total Performer Award. We are sincerely hoping this girl follows in her momma's footsteps!
3 Kids Farm JC Lilac
Cream and White
This is another little doe, "Lilac", we are pretty excited about. She comes from some nice linage starting with her dam, Wee3Farms EP Hyacinth. Her granddam, GCH JRD Ranch CS Cherry Blossom, is a permanent champion and is LA scored at 90. She is pictured as a second freshner. She just kidded with a single but production is coming up this lactation. She has a very nice well attached mammary system. Her appraisal in 2019 was ++VV 84. We think this girl is just going to keep improving as she ages!
3 Kids Farm VW Irish Cream
Although these are not the most flattering pictures, this is shaping up to be a very nice doe. She is very angular and has great depth and open ribbed. Her dam, Southside T Cameo had an LA score was V+VV 85 in 2019 as a first freshner. Her granddam, Calico Creek Celine, and her great granddam, Calico Creek Cinder, are both pictured below (courtesy of Calico Creek Farm). Cinder was the 2013 AGS Reserve National Champion Sr Doe. We look forward to seeing what this doel does as she matures.
3 Kids Farm OI Chanda
Black Swiss Marked with tan moonspots
Chanda is the first daughter we have freshened out of Isidore. We are very pleased with the sneak peak we are getting of his daughters. We love what we are seeing of her mammary as a first freshner. We look forward to seeing her mature
3 Kids Farm A Aria
Black with white markings and frosted ears
Aria is a yearling first freshener. She certainly has the will to milk and is a nice angular little doe. We have her dam in our herd, "Lullaby". We have certainly liked how her dam is maturing and hope to see similar things from Aria.
