Laurel was one of quadruplet does born to Castle Rock Worth Every Penny in 2018. Her dam has a beautiful and well-attached udder, typical of a Cleveland Sage daughter, high, wide, and with near perfect plumb teat placement.
With this cross specifically we were looking to improve rump structure, striving for more width and levelness between the thurls compared to her dam, without sacrificing body capacity, or production, both of which Laurel’s dam excels at.
Watching her grow as a yearling, Laurel has so many of the qualities of her dam, in regards to depth, and body capacity, width between the hock, and overall her general appearance is very similar. While we would still like to see those thurls a little higher, there is no doubt that her rump is wider, thanks to her sire. We’re greatly looking forward to freshening Laurel in the spring of 2020. She has only attended one show so far, and placed second in the dry yearling class (behind our doe River Blythe), in a class of 24.
