Promise is a very large, tall doe that needs
a little more time to grow into herself. Her Gen. App. and body capacity final score during the 2006 appraisal reflected
her immaturity. She appraised a final score of 83 as a first freshener. It will be exciting to see how she scores this
year. She has room for more growth, but has really filled out in the last year.
As a yearling she came in with enough production
that her young body was not keeping up with it. After putting her on a feed change we were able to curtail her production
to about 8lbs a day. She is a very consistent and stable milker. She finally dropped to about 3/4 gallon
a day at 8 months fresh as a yearling. This year as a 2yo she milked 13.8lbs at a little over one month fresh
on DHI. Still a little immature, we feel she is an extremely solid doe, both in structure and production.
