Reference Does

Grand Design Starr Anise

     Sire: Cross-B-Ranch Magic Wizard
     Dam: Spellbound Nutmeg
     DOB: 1/25/2007

Full pedigree may be viewed here.

     Starr was one of my most beloved does of all time, and I miss her dearly. She was a very dairy doe with nice, elastic skin, beautifully fine hair texture, a well-proportioned udder, level topline, and good prominence of brisket. She moved tall-fronted and smooth and had a steady personality. Rear udder photo taken in her third lactation.

     Emmy is the result of an AI breeding, and she is a sweetheart. She has a strong head, beautiful ears, and nicely angled rear legs, and she is also very good in feet and udder texture. Emmy has some of the kindest eyes I've ever seen on a Nubian, and she was a willing milker. She has issues with her forelegs and shoulders (they are too far forward, leading to difficulty walking and lameness), and I am working to improve that in her daughters as quickly as possible. Emmy herself is now retired.

     Missy is dam of Grand Design EspĂ­ritu Eco. She is a decent general-appearance doe with silky, fine hair; stretchy, thin skin; and a remarkably soft udder. She milked out quickly and easily, and had no complications kidding her first time with substantial twin bucklings, and the second time also with twins. She was very timid and tended to be flighty.

     DOB: 1/18/2010

     I loved this buck. Zorion was a sharp, angular buck linebred on Goldthwaite My Bonny Love. With fantastic height, breed character, and proportions, he stamped his kids with the same tall, sharp type, and he was incredibly sweet and gentle as well - a characteristic his son, Joshua, carries.

     Maxim, owned by Nora McCoy of Hope Eternal Nubians, was the sire of the beautiful does SG Grand Design Strawberry Peep and Grand Design Molly Malone. He was one of our "rescues," as he was very run-down when we got him. His paternal granddam, SGCH J&R Spirit's DK Kovergirl 2*M, was 2009 ADGA National Reserve Senior Champion & Best Udder, while his maternal granddam, SGCH Jacobs Pride Butterscot Pudd'n 8*M, was 2010 ADGA National Show Reserve Grand Champion & Reserve Best Udder.
