SAPPHIRE is a beautiful doe out of the first goats I purchased from Echo Hill’s. She is absolutely beautiful! I was mighty tempted to keep at least one of her triplet sisters as well, but restrained myself and just kept one of Molly and Jasper’s beautiful daughters. Sapphire has very nice conformation with strong feet and legs and lots of body capacity.  Her main faults is that she is on the tall side and has a rather steep rump (although it is incredibly flat). Her dam was our best milker giving about 7-8 lbs of milk each day and has given nearly 11# in one day! Molly has a lovely udder and is super easy to milk. Jasper, Sapphire’s sire, also comes from a line of great milkers and has given us many beautiful kids.  Sapphire has followed in her mother’s hoofprints and has the most amazing udder ever!  Her udder socked on super tight with very nice shape.  I don’t know that I’ve ever seen an udder with such high, wide, tight rear attachments!  She is also milking very well, keeping up the high production through the summer and fall months.  She easy produces over a gallon a day for the first several months of her lactation and is usually still producing over 1/2 a gallon (4 lbs) late in her lactation.  Like her dam, she has very nice sized teats that make her easy to milk.  Sapphire easily earned her last two V-CH legs in 2011 as a 3 year old and is the 2nd doe in the country to earn the VMCH title.  She took Best in Show, Best Udder in Show (in both rings), Best Udder of Breed as well as Grand Champion – She deserves it!
