Rafter O Wild Verbena

Breed: Mini Nubian 3rd genRafter O Wild Verbena - Reserve Grand Champion Mini Nubian Senior Doe

Date of Birth: 03-23-21
G6S Normal by Parentage

Verbena has it all!  She is blue-eyed, polled, and has the unique Cou Clair color pattern – and an excellent pedigree!  Her first freshening udder was small but had great characteristics for future development.  Nice teat size and placement, well attached with high escutcheon.  We are excited to see her future freshenings!

Her dam, Clover, is a beautiful two-tone chamoisee doe with blue eyes and a FINISHED CHAMPION.  She is very feminine and has a great topline and overall conformation.  Clover’s pedigree is outstanding on both sides.  Verbena’s grand dam, Clair, comes from top Nubian herds.  Her sire, Memphis, put great width on his kids and is a *B buck, and his dam, Tootsie, just earned her milk star!

Verbena won Reserve Grand Champion Mini Nubian Senior Doe in the Texas Mini Milkers Texas Two-Step on May 6, 2023 under Judge Ashely Burton.  Both judges commented on how beautiful she is on the move in the ring!

Rafter O Wild Verbena RCH- Fall 2022

Verbena won Reserve Grand Champion Mini Nubian Junior Doe in the Fall 2022 MDGA Virtual Show!  Comments from Judge Lavinia 

Allen: The Mini Nubian Reserve Grand Champion Junior Doe is Entry H from the Senior Yearling Class.  Again, this doe has the advantage in her Body Capacity being very deep in her heart girth and barrel.   In General Appearance, Entry H exhibits strong straight legs from the front and rear with good angulation of the rear legs when viewed from the side,  good width in her chest floor, and she has good length of bone as seen through her topline with smooth blending from the loin into a more correct slope from hips to pins.  This doe also shows good breed character for a Generation 3.

Name Origin

Wild Verbena

Prairie Verbena has gently rounded clusters of bilaterally symmetrical pink, lavender, or purple flowers bloom atop stems with highly divided leaves. The Spanish name, Moradilla, comes from morado (“purple”) and means “little purple one.” This plant often forms brilliant displays of pink or light purple, covering acres of ground. It is a variable complex, with some plants tall and pink-flowered, others more matted, and with lavender or purple flowers; the two forms are usually found in separate areas. The genus Glandularia is closely related to Verbena, differing conspicuously in its round-topped clusters of showy flowers; in some references, this species is listed as Verbena ambrosifolia.

This species is a member of the verbena family (family Verbenaceae), which includes about 75 genera and 3,000 species of herbs, shrubs, and trees, mostly of tropical and warm temperate regions. Among them, teak is a highly prized furniture wood, and Vervain, Lantana, Lippia or Frog Fruit are grown as ornamentals.
