Another awkward yearling photo that does this doe no justice, but in an effort to get the website updated, it will do until we can clip the does in spring.
Syrah is a Rowena granddaughter, and the daughter of one of our very promising first fresheners, Moselle.
Her sire, Myrddin, has solid production and type behind him, on both his dam and sire’s side. He has positive ETA’s for both production and type. His littermate sister, Gwenhwyfar, freshened with a wide, capacious and well-attached udder, and as of her December 2022 evaluation has positive PTAM of 55 as a first freshener. While we would like to see Gwen’s teats placed more medially, she excels in dairy strength, and had a very solid start as a first freshener this year. Myrddin’s maternal half-sister, Avalon, another Rowena daughter, earned her permanent linear appraisal score of EEEE 91, with E’s in most of the structural categories (and was a rather awkward yearling herself).
Syrah has good capacity for a yearling, and we expect she will mature with lovely depth as she fills out as a dry yearling. Definitely a doe we are excited to see freshen next spring.
