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 Emma and Andi, granddam to Rogue and Six. 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). If she hadn’t dried off suddenly during a heavy heat, she’d have cracked into the Half Ton Club, with ease.

She is taking 2017 off.
