Scarlet's dam, Madia Elegans, was a personal favorite. However, as sometimes happens, she did not live up to our expectations in regards to general appearance, or udder structure, despite performing very well in the milk room. We made a somewhat rash decision to sell her, but only because we could retain her lovely daughter. 

Unfortunately, as a dry yearling, Maddie had a tendency to gain weight very easily, and lacked the dairy strength we expected to see. This in turn made it difficult to show her to her true potential. 

When Scarlet was born, she was one of those kids where the decision to retain her happened before she could even stand. Structurally she appeared to be exactly what we expected from this cross, and appeared to be more refined in general appearance than her dam from the start. Her pedigree promises a lot of production potential, as both her dam, and her grand dam, Lotus, have been solid milkers. 

As Maddie's udder attachments were not as expected, we were thrilled to see that crossing her to Sheldon significantly improved Scarlet's udder. Scarlet is Sheldon's first daughter to freshen here, and despite almost listing him for sale earlier this year, we've decided he should probably stick around a little longer...
