Sandy comes from great Nigerian and Nubian lines!  She is sure to infuse some great milky genetics into our herd…and she’s POLLED!  She has a super-sweet personality.  Sapphire’s 2F udder is looking excellent with no separation – we will get a 12-hour fill picture posted soon! We had listed Sandy for sale, but after further evaluation, we have decided to retain her.

Sapphire is maturing very nicely and her FF udder was great!  Nice high attachment, good teat placement, and good orifice size.  Teat size is on the smaller side, and we will improve that with Lark.    Sapphire won Reserve Grand Champion Mini Nubian Junior Doe in the MDGA Fall 2019 Virtual Show and Reserve Grand Champion Mini Nubian Senior Doe in the HCMM Texas Two-Step in May 2021.

Lark is our first retained buckling at the Rafter O.  His dam, Ruby, had LONG teats with great placement.  Lark also has long Nubian ears that will help correct Sapphire’s fly-aways!  Ruby was a very small Nubian doe, so the size of these kids will stay down.
