Nessie is one of June Bug’s epic Quintuplets in 2023!  She was the 5th kid and needed some extra attention after she was born as she had a crooked neck.  I can imagine it could have been the other 4 kids squishing her!  With a little TLC and physical therapy, she was perfectly normal after a couple of days.  In that bonding time, her little hooves pushed their way into my heart and I decided to retain her.  

Her dam, June Bug, is our first doeling born at the Rafter O, and we are very proud of her.  She is a dream to milk and has great Nubian breed character. 

 June Bug took Best in ShowBest Udder in Show and Grand Champion Senior Mini Nubian Doe at the Hill Country Mini Milkers Fall Frolic Show in Decatur, TX on Nov. 3, 2018!  Way to go June Bug!

June Bug took Best Udder in Show again in Ring 2 at the Hill Country Mini Milkers Texas Two-Step on June 2, 2019.

Her sire, Tundra, is our spectacular buck from out West.  He brings in a powerhouse pedigree of champs and milk stars. He’s got great conformation, and should only improve these kids!  We specifically brought him in to breed to our polled does since he is horned and disbudded – but we are using him on several girls this year.  Tundra won Reserve Grand Champion Mini Nubian Buckling in the Fall 2020 MDGA Virtual Show!  Tundra also has his *B – milk star.  AND…Tundra won Reserve Grand Champion Mini Nubian Senior Buck in the Summer 2021 and Fall 2022 MDGA Virtual Show.
