Halo is a very close linebreeding on Dawnland Tabby’s Halifax; she kidded for the first time on 05.02.16, with quints, for crying out loud. One boy was so big, he couldn’t exit naturally, so, off to the vet we went. Miss Halo was safely (if dramatically) relieved of three live kids, plus the little peanut that I managed to get out at home. She has recovered beautifully, but I felt she was surely retired, and would remain here as a pet. Our vet voiced concern that she might never settle again.

Scaramouche had other ideas. Halo kidded yet another set of quints, all on her own this year. Her tattoos could be read for linear appraisal in August 2018; I’ll be taking advantage of ADGA’s new microchip policy to be sure she is appraised (and shown!) in 2019. She is still milking well in the 16th month of her lactation.
