Moonlight is not one that we planned on retaining, but when she wasn't picked off of the deposit list, we thought that maybe we should keep her. That thought was solidified when we took pictures of her for selling her and we saw just how beautifully she was put together! She is as sweet as can be, and both her sire and dam come from fantastic milking lines, so we expect a lot out of this little doe. Her dam, Clair, has a well attached udder, but so far has not given us what we believe her genetic potential is, peaking at about 5lbs a day her second freshening. Clair has been picked on a lot by the herd and had a high worm load this past year, which might account for her lower production. Those two problems have been addressed, so she might pick up this next year. We are still very pleased with Moonlight, and are looking forward to watching her grow.
