Sage has some very big hooves to fill. Her dam, Lotus, has numerous breed leader accolades, has placed on the Elite list for the past three years, and as a five year-old earned a Lifetime Achievement award with the American Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Association for producing more than 5,000 lbs of milk, and greater than 250 lbs of butterfat, even though she was not on milk test for her first lactation.
Sage’s paternal granddam, Castle Rock Roxanne, is well known in northern California show circles, with an incredible record of 22 Best of Breed, and numerous best udder of breed awards. No pressure, Sage!
As a late-season May-born kid, Sage has not yet been shown, and although we had hoped to appraise and show her in 2020, we weren’t anticipating COVID, or a devastating wildland fire, to become the focus of that year.
Her littermate sister, Trillium, is currently residing with our good friends at Tres Rios Ranch, and both have freshened with beautiful and capacious udders this spring.
Sage’s daughters, sired by Hanukkah, both hold a lot of promise, and Tänzerin is retained to the herd. Her sister, Scarlet Sage, currently resides at McMini-Akers in Sonoma county.
Her 2022 daughter, Autumn Sage, sired by Space Oddity strongly resembles her sister, Trillium in general appearance, and is currently retained.
