Blackberry’s BQ Sapphire is a beautiful second-generation Mini Nubian out of new and old lines from CA Blackberry’s Goat Herd in Valley Center, California.  Sapphire has a ton of MILK in her pedigree and excellent conformation.  Her stature is uphill at the withers and her topline is very level.  She won Reserve Grand Champion Junior Doeling in the Fall 2019 MDGA Virtual Show!

Judges commend Sapphire for being high in her rear udder attachment and strong in her medial suspensory ligament. In dairy character, she is long and lean in her neck.

Sapphire took Reserve Grand Champion Senior Mini Nubian Doe at the Hill Country Mini Milker Texas Two-Step on May 16, 2021.  Both judges really commended her on her overall conformation and mammary system.

In talking with Judge Hallock after the show, she said that if she was getting into Mini Nubians, she would be looking for a goat just like Sapphire.  

Exciting future for this gal!  This was her second freshening, so we are excited to see her mammary system continue to develop.

We retained her 2021 daughter, Sandy.  Sandy won Grand Champion Mini Nubian Junior Doe in the Summer 2021 MDGA Virtual Show!
