Moselle’s dam, River Blythe, is the only River of Rain daughter we retained from her quads in 2018. As a young kid she would always seek out the humans to hang out with when out on pasture, while her sisters were busy browsing.
After a last minute change up in the breeding schedule in late fall 2019, we bred Blythe to Space Oddity. We unexpectedly lost Oddie’s sire in the fall, so we decided to use Oddie instead, and are so glad we did.
Moselle and her sister, Sionainn, are both beautiful, very dairy does, and Space Oddity’s offspring this year have proven to be incredibly consistent in type and structure. Another situation where electing which doe to retain was difficult, but neither would have been the wrong choice.
Blythe freshened with a lovely high, well attached, capacious udder, with a great medial. Adding a Lotus grandson, and Written N The Stars son to produce Moselle, we expect her to retain those strengths in mammary structure and capacity once she herself freshens in 2022.
