After two years of outside reservations falling through due to sheer bad luck, when we were presented with the opportunity to purchase Alethia DJ Written N The Stars (Destiny) in the fall of 2016, we wouldn't resist. We purchased her bred, and she was confirmed pregnant with twins at the time. We crossed our hooves throughout her pregnancy for buck and doe twins, and that's exactly what she gifted us. Both kids were retained to the herd. So after two years of struggling to bring in the genetics we were hoping for, we felt the stars had indeed aligned, hence Allie's name.

Allie's maternal grandsire, Drops of Jupiter, needs little introduction, and her paternal grandsire, Montego Bay is equivalently well known, both of whom have sired numerous champion and superior genetics offspring.

Both Allie, and her brother Ziggy (Destiny's Starman), are long and level, smoothly blended, and incredibly consistent looking kids. Allie, as a yearling, was almost the spitting image of her dam, and she easily secured her restricted champion leg.

As a two year-old first freshener, Allie could almost do no wrong. Her udder is incredibly wide, capacious, and extremely well supported, scoring  47 for rear udder arch and 40 for rear udder height at a mere 7 weeks fresh.

In the show ring, in highly competitive 2 year-old classes, Allie consistently floated to the head of the her class.  While she placed reserve Grand Champion at REDGA, she placed behind a doe that was already a finished champion, and as the class was large enough, to our surprise Allie earned her first unrestricted champion leg as a result. She then went on to finish her permanent Championship* at the Gold Country Dairy Goat Association show the following weekend. A remarkable feat for a first freshener in very highly competitive Northern California shows. Meanwhile, her brother, Destiny's Starman, also finished his championship the same season over the course of two 2-ring shows, in two weekends.

Allie's daughter, Curbstone Valley DI Bellatrix, sired by Lotus' son, Desert Indigo, is retained to the herd.

*Allie's finished permanent championship status is in limbo, and will continue to be until the ADGA Convention in October 2019. Due to an omission on the 'Report of Awards' at her last show where she was awarded GCH, that states how many Nigerian milkers were in the show (a total of 47) the ADGA committee now has to vote to accept the judge's correction on the paperwork. The 47 milkers in the show FAR exceeds the required 8 does in milk for her to be officially awarded the last leg. So for now, we wait...
