     Twinkl, co-owned by Nora McCoy of Hope Eternal Nubians, is a well-producing doe with a wonderful udder that is well balanced both from the rear and from the side, and also has good attachment. She exhibits width in the head that follows through her body to a wide, flat rump, straight legs, and a friendly disposition.

     Kaz has so much presence and class. She is one of my "special babies"; I adore her. She is very refined, dairy, and elegant, with supple, elastic skin, a long, thin neck, and, of course, that beautiful, soft udder. She has nice spring of rib and a naturally level topline, and moves smoothly, with good natural carriage. She receives glowing compliments from appraisers and just about anyone who sees her. To top it off, she milked a very respectable amount her second freshening, which was an extended lactation of 510 days.

     Peach is so similar to her dam, Twinkl, in carriage and personality. She is intelligent, likes being a leader, and is pleasant to work with. She has lovely rear legs, feet, back, and rump, a nice, short, broad head, good flare to her ears, and bright eyes. I am excited to see her udder develop as her lactation continues. Please note that she did not have a full 12-hour fill when this photo was taken.

Yiuta (said to be one of the original Apache words the name "Utah" was derived from, and which is pronounced the same) is a long-bodied doe with good substance. She has nice shape to her ears, good legs and feet, and a decent head. She's an extremely personable, friendly doe, and loves receiving (and giving!) attention. Please note that she did not have a full 12-hour fill when this photo was taken.

     Peep is an absolutely stunning young doe. She has wonderful breed character; fine, supple, dairy skin; depth and width of body; excellent feet and legs; beautiful general appearance...yes, I am very excited about her. She is an impressively mature-bodied doe for her age, and her first freshening udder looks very promising - similar to her dam's, but higher and wider in the rear and with increased attachement. Please note that she did not have a full 12-hour fill when this photo was taken.

     Molly is a very tall first freshener with an absolute dream of an udder. Nicely proportioned, excellent udder texture, almost no first-freshening edema, and easy to milk out due to her properly sized orifices. She had an incredibly easy time birthing normal-sized triplets, and by day seven of her lactation, was producing between 7 and 8 lbs per day. She is a lovely general-appearance doe with length of bone, nice shoulders, back, and legs, dairy strength and character, and a slightly flighty but overall tractable disposition.
