     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 excellent depth of body 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 is a production trooper, with two extended lactations under her belt.

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 I love her disposition. 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 a very nice first-freshening 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 easy time birthing normal-sized triplets as a first freshener, 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.

     Chili was extremely easy to train to the milk stand, and is lovely to milk - soft udder texture, nice teat size, and proper orifice size. She follows me around, quietly asking for affection, and is sweet to have around. She has lovely breed character, length of body, and good feet.
