Update 11/16/17:  Many thanks to Curtis Gerry (Jr) at Amethyst Acres for providing me with the following information and photos of Zenaida's full younger sister, SG Sugar Moon RB Gianna!

SG Sugar Moon RB Gianna was Linear Appraised VVEE FS89 in 2015 as a 1st freshener.  That is the highest score a first freshener can receive!  She was also on the 2015 - 2017 ADGA Elite Doe List (99th Percentile).  Here's what her owner has to say about her:  Gianna has a beautiful udder with extremely velvety texture, high and well attached, effortless milker, lots of capacity and great production!  Her sire SG NC PromisedLand Ram-Beau is #3 on the 2017 USDA's Elite Buck List (97th Percentile) with (PTA) Milk +91 & has one of the highest REL's in the breed!  Consistently passing on great production & type!

Update 8/24/15:  Both Zenaida's sire and her littermate brother made ADGA's August 2015 Elite Buck list!

Update 11/21/14:  Just checked out the latest ADGA Top Ten Breed Leaders (2013) and Zenaida's dam, SG NC PromisedLand PAL Paloma 1*M earned the #3 spot in milk production with 1290 lbs in 305 days!  She was # 2 in both Butterfat and Protein Production.

Zenaida is a solid black doe who is the result of another excellent production breeding.  Her dam earned her SG (Superior Genetics) designation in 2011 and is now SG NC PromisedLand PAL Paloma *D *M 'E90', and her littermate brother, + *B SG Sugar Moon Rocky Dolby, is a herd sire at Pholia Farm Creamery and Dairy, and according to them, his first freshening daughters are some of their best, earning their SG designation at a very young age!  They consider Rocky Dolby to so far be one of their best bucks ever.  Zenaida has been very stingy with doe kids, producing only bucks in her first two freshenings, but hopefully she will bless me with at least one in 2015!

Zenaida's first fresh udder is shown below.  She has amazing udder texture, and great teat size and medial, something that is quite often lacking in the breed.
