Galene was actually sold, and I had no intention of retaining two Neira daughters from this litter. Through no fault of her own she found herself staying here a little longer, and she kept catching my eye.
Her dam, Neira, has always been a personal favorite. Hands down the easiest kidder in the herd. For the last two years she has stood up, eating hay, barely pushed, and popped out quads, and then quints the following year, in rapid succession. We’ve learned to be ready to catch!
While Neira has had some structural areas to improve she has great width throughout, and her udder has been capacious, with well placed plumb teats, a strong medial, and area of attachment. She has one of the strongest positive PTAM values of any of Ocean’s daughters.
Galene excels in general appearance, an improvement over her dam, and is longer in body than her sister, but retaining capacity. By around seven months her teat length was noted. The most beautiful plumb, large teats, we have seen on a kid. With the mammary genetics behind her, how can she not be retained? She echos her sire’s dam more than her dam in general appearance, but teat length she certainly takes after her dam, and as a result, we are intrigued to see this doe mature, and freshen, so she stays!
