Sophia is one of our original girls and our herd queen; her sire is also sire to the 2011 National Champion doe, Dragonfly RY Topaz. She is the matriarch of our “red line”; her progeny here are all marked by wearing Sophia’s red collar.
On her third freshening after kidding quints, I got my act together, and Sophia will finally get the milk star she’s been earning all along. We have three Sophia girls here: Zoe (2*M pending), Hermione (pictured here with her dam, left), and Theia. Sophia will be getting 2017 off; she’s earned a rest.
Sophia has a lovely udder to milk but is a right pain in the butt. Her paternal grandsire would be proud.
