A very dairy little doe, Sunsplash is very much a blend of her dam and paternal granddam. When she and Sarafina end up on the milk stand next to each other, the resemblance is unmistakable. She's a very long, smoothly blended, stylish doe, though being a little on the small side, she hasn't gotten noticed in the show ring as much. She has a very nice udder, with large, well definted teats, a strong MSL, very strong foreudder attachment, and a high rear udder arch. Pictured here as a two year old first freshener.

Tahiti has the incredible general appearance we have come to expect from Cleveland Sage daughters, along with tons of dairy character, udder arch, capacity, and texture. We'd like to see her a bit tighter in the toes, and if we were being really picky, a bit sharper in the withers. As she matures, it's getting harder and harder to tell her apart from Nikita when they are both in the barn yard. She has a very sweet disposition, and is so veeeery chill. Nothing surprises her. Well, except for that time that something (probably a racoon) bloodied her up overnight. She was a little shocky for a few days after that, but we were very relieved to see her get back to her old self relatively quickly, and that her production came back by a week or so later.

I love the general appearance on this girl- she is long and level, with nice width and depth for her age, good angularity, strength of pasturns, and placement of front legs. As we have come to expect from our Chico daughters, she has really nice general appearance with a correctly shaped and attached udder. She's only made it to one show weekend in 2017, and I ended up handing her off to a couple of handlers who weren't able to convince her to stand still for the judges, but still ended up in the top half of the class. If any of our girls fit the description of being "under foot", it would be this doe, who has been the cause of me almost falling over backwards more times than I am comfortable admitting- she is really, really curious, and utterly fearless.
