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 is a first freshner this year. She 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 this summer, results were V+++ 82. She definitely has the genetics to be a great little producer. 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!
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!
Wee3Farms EP Hyacinth
Light Tan with White Poll and Blue Eyes
This is another little doe, "Hyacinth", we are pretty excited about. We are thankful to Wee3 Farms for allowing us to add this gorgeous girl to our herd. Her dam, GCH JRD Ranch CS Cherry Blossom, is a permanent champion and is LA scored at 90. She is pictured as a first freshner. She just started her second lactation. 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 Peppermint Patti
Brown with white Markings
This yearling first freshener is one we are going to hold onto and watch for while. Although she freshened with a singleton she seems to have the will to milk. We feel it's sometimes difficult to fully evaluate a FF who delivers only one kid. Often that second lactation they come back with a bang! She is on the petite side, will be fun to see her develop.
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 FG Lucy
Brown with White markings and Frosted ears
This is doe is just stunning! We love her! She has depth, spring of rib and great dairy qualities all wrapped up in one package. She was appraised in 2019 as VVVV 87. She is from a doe line that we hope sticks around here a long time. It is definitely a nice line to build your foundation on. She is shown here as a doeling and in the barn in her working clothes.
3 Kids Farm VW Razzleberry
So there are a few things I would like to change about this doe....but dairyness ain't one of em'! She is incredibly open ribbed, angular and has a very soft pliable milkable udder. She has a will to milk and sweet personality to boot. She is from some awesome lines, her dam being "Raspberry" shown above. So despite a few flaws, this girl will stick around for a while.
