Stella was one of quadruplets born on the last day of our 2019 kidding season. Too young to be competitive that season, we elected to leave her home, and trot her out in the show ring in 2020. Well, all things pandemic, followed by a historic wildland fire, followed by a move across the country, have left her home and out of the ring. Hopefully, 2023 will prove to be her year instead.
Stella’s sire, Indy, finished his permanent championship as a two-year old, and threw very correct daughters.
Stella’s dam, Destiny, is an absolute herd favorite. As a 7 year-old, she earned numerous best of breeds in champion challenge, and was frequently mentioned as being in strong contention for best in show. Judges loved her.
In 2019, Destiny’s daughter, Stella’s maternal half-sister, When Stars Align (Allie), finished her permanent championship as a first freshening two year-old, and was one of our most productive first fresheners, producing 1,020 lbs of milk in 305 days, and Allie’s brother completed his permanent championship as a two year-old the same year.
Stella is from Destiny’s last litter, and is a lovely, long, and elegant doe. She finally freshened as a three year-old, and did not disappoint. Even though appraisal was very late in 2022, she still scored very well, including earning one of the highest foreudder scores (37) in the herd that year. Her brother, Space Oddity, has produced some of our favorite udders in our 2022 kid crop.
Stella is bred to Hanukkah for spring of 2023. With Han’s strengths in type and production we are very excited to meet those kids!
