While not intending to retain another daughter of Rowena’s so soon, with Avalon it was difficult not to. This doe line is thus far proving to be incredibly consistent, in structure, and and dairy strength.

Ava’s dam, Rowena, is repeatedly commended for her general appearance, and overall dairyness. Rowena is very dairy in the milk room, too, and was our highest performing first freshener in 2016, producing 1160 pounds of milk in 305 days. She placed squarely on the ADGA Breed Leader list that year for protein production. Rowena’s dam, Royalia, in turn was on that same list for milk, butterfat, and protein.

Avalon’s sire, Desert Indigo, is the son of another of our Top Ten milkers, Lotus, a 2017 and 2018 Elite Doe. Indy, like his sire before him, easily finished his permanent championship as a three year-old.

Ava has the same length of body, and very similar overall general appearance as her dam, with good width, and capacity for her age. At her first appraisal, at just about a month fresh, Ava scored E for front legs, shoulder assembly, and rear legs.

After milking through in 2021 due to the fire, Ava was finally scored again in late fall 2022. Despite adjusting to a new climate, new feed, and appraising the day before Halloween that year, Ava earned a final score of EEEE 91 (shown milked out in the photograph above). She earned E’s in the structural categories for shoulder assembly, front and rear legs, back, and rump!
