Daystar’s EHB Cynthia’s Sweet Spirit

Spirit is a 1st generation mini Nubian (75%/25%) Doe
Born 2015

A word from her original home at Rocky’s Creek by Tracy Cloud:

“Spirit is the jewel of my herd. Her udder is lovely – her first v-show, as a young first freshener, she won Best Udder of Breed (and Champion, and Best Senior Doe in Show, too). My goal is to breed mini Nubians that look as good as top quality Nubians, just, in a smaller package. Spirit has the long body, strong brisket, nice topline, and good feet and legs I want… Her teat shape and placement are nearly ideal, easy to hand milk. And she tops off all this beauty with a wonderful personality. Quiet, cooperative, sweet, affectionate, not pushy at all. I didn’t have to “train” her to milk, I just asked her to come to the milk stand and started milking. And, of course, she has beautiful breed character.

“This family line tends to produce more milk than 2-3 kids can consume after 2 or 3 years old (they produce plenty for kids before that, but when dam-raising after maturity they often need to be milked IN ADDITION to nursing kids to prevent discomfort) and also tends to develop their real depth after age 2…

“… We originally bought Sweetie with a breeding; our first choice (a Nigerian buck) didn’t work out so I chose Bonanza as her sire. Jacqui was super-patient with me, I must have spent 20 minutes at her buck pen comparing all her gorgeous bucks against Sweetie and my own does trying to choose between them (I was hoping for a buckling to cross with the other does I already owned). We ended up with a doe – and loved Spirit so much, we went back and bought Bonanza so we could repeat the breeding. Her name is Cynthia’s Sweet Spirit because my sister wanted me to name a goat after her. I named a wether for her, but Cynthia wanted a doe named for her. You’re welcome, sis.”

 
We at BCF Legacy are beyond THRILLED to get to work with this gorgeous doe, only hope we can help her to reach her fullest potential and make a solid place for her in the mini world.
