Penelope is another lovely daughter of Dragonfly HLU Nikola Tesla; she impressed our 2014 appraiser with her legs, shoulder assembly and feminine appearance. She is a long, leggy girl.

Penelope is the matriarch of our “blue line”, dam to Andi and Cyd, granddam to Rogue and Six, great granddam to Boomer. She is also our herd milk machine. She just polevaulted over the requirements for all three components of her dairy star…halfway through her second lactation (see below). On her third lactation, she joined the Half Ton Club (1,000+ milk within 305 days) and is still milking well in the 16th month of the lactation. She was almost a year post-kidding when she was appraised in August, with VVEV87.
