Talani, named for an Iris, is the daughter of one of our Castle Rock Lotus daughters, Fernalds Iris. She has caught our eye since she was born. Her photograph doesn't do her justice, and once I come up for air, I really need to see this doe clipped, but for now, my instinct is that she should stay.

Her sire is the half brother to one of our mature does, SGCH Castle Rock Minerva. Minnie has long been a farm favorite, so when the opportunity arose to bring her maternal brother here, we were more than happy to do so. 

Talani is beautifully angular, with a long lean neck, and strong front end, with very nice teat length for a doe her age. However, we will have to wait until 2021 to see how she freshens. An April kid this season, Talani has yet to see the show ring, but we're really looking forward to getting this lovely doe out to a few shows next season.
