Hope combines the doe lines of two of our long time favorites, Rowena, and Meme (Dew Ya Love Me). Her dam, Katy, had a solid first lactation, especially considering she only had twin doelings that year, and easily earned her milk stars in volume and components.
Katy’s first appraisal was good considering she was carrying a fair bit of excess fleshing with it being so late in the season, and she has a beautiful back, one of my favorite rumps, and lovely rear leg angulation.
Hope has a lot of similar type traits to her dam, and we were looking to retain her dam’s length of body and capacity, while improving medial strength and teat placement through her sire. We’ll have to see how that turns out in the spring of 2024.
