Jamais is a long level doe that combines some very nice udder genetics. I saw her full sister, Castle Rock Jasmine, in milk at a show or two last year, and was impressed with her length of body, and how well attached her capacious udder was. My fingers are crossed that Jamais will turn out just as nice. She is very much like her dam in personality, though more likely to actively seek your attention than Tesla.

I really like the upstandingness of this doe, her smoothness of blending, width and angle of rump, and her angularity. She is sweet and friendly, and definitely more forward about making you aware she is near than her dam-- she has a magnetic attraction to any human who enters our pasture. She freshened with a small, but well attached udder, with good MSL and very nice texture, and has increased capacity as a second freshener. The one show we managed to get her to this year, we did clip her for, but it was a one ring show and ran way later than we expected it to, and then our show season was cut somewhat short by the demands of the California wildfires on the spouse's work schedule.

Finally getting around to taking a picture of this lady during the last week of her first lactation probably wasn't the best plan, but is just how sometimes how farm schedules work out. We also weren't able to get her appraised this year due to me having accidentally tattooed her twice, and subsequent issues with getting corrected paperwork from ADGA in time for our session. This little blue eyed beauty is long bodied, smoothly blended, angular, and so very dairy. I love her flatness of bone, spring of rib, brisket extension, and her wide flat rump. Her first freshening udder was less capacious than we were expecting, but as I have noted elsewhere, our hay quality has suffered in our drought, and no one really performed as expected on milk test this year (except for Ice Floe). The qualities we are looking for are there though- soft texture and really nice attachments, though ideally her teats could be bigger.

Castle Rock Washoe Pine
DOB 3/27/13
1xGCH Jr., 1xRGCH Jr.

Sire: Castle Rock Chicago Peace
(Copper Penny ROF Calico Jack x GCH-ARMCH CRF Castle Rock Tuscan Sun 1*M *D VEEE 90)
Dam: GCH Castle Rock Ghost Pine 3*D
(Rosasharn's TL Sitka Spruce +*S x ARMCH Castle Rock Sky Lupine 2*M 2*D)

Washoe combines really nice general appearance with good dairy character, flat bone, spring of rib, and overall correctness. While in general, she has the same friendly, gentle demeanor as her dam, in this picture, we can clearly see she was very done with being at the show, and would not put her head down or her front feet in the right place for anything. We figured out during her second lactation that she is a very fast eater on the milk stand, which is why she tends to get a bit overconditioned while in milk. We started to restrict her feed in the milk room to help with this and then leased her out to a good friend to milk some fat off of her. Unfortunately, amidst everything else we were doing, we did not- for the second lactation in a row- get a picture of her in milk. She does have a wide, well attached, easy to milk udder, with plumb teats, and getting a picture of that is on the top of our to-do list for 2017.

(CRF Castle Rock Mr. Lincoln *S x SGCH Algedi Farm H Purple Rain 4*M 4*D VEEV 90)

Fedora is a very eye catching doe, though in the show ring, that is mostly due to her refusal to walk. However, when she does decide to walk, she levels out very nicely on the move, with lots of width between the hocks, and an udder that is held up very snugly in her high, wide escutcheon. She has a very nice side profile, with smooth blending, depth from heart girth into the flank, and an elegant, femenine look to her.

(Lost Valley KW Stetson +B +*S x Castle Rock Snowfluryceanothus 2*D)

We love Snownamie so much, we decided to try to make her again. Brinicle has a very similar body type, being long, elegant, and stretchy. She really levels out on the move, showing off her tight front end assembly, natural uphill walk, and that long, wide rump. She won her junior leg the first time she stepped into a show ring, which made up for her being such a diva about going to the show in the first place. She has freshened with a lovely udder that has noticibly improved as she has gotten further into her lactation. I think getting a second freshening under her belt will help move her up the line next year.

Because it is alread a FAQ: A brinicle is a brine icicle, also known as an ice stalactite, which forms beneath sea ice when a flow of extremely cold, saline water is introduced to an area of ocean water.

(Castle Rock Pound Foolish x GCH Castle Rock Sarafina 2*M EEEE 92)
Dam: GCH Castle Rock Sun Sapphire 1*M
(CRF Castle Rock Cobalt *S x TX Twin Creeks WDF Sunsprite)

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.

Dam: CH Castle Rock Penny For Luck
(CRF Castle Rock Harvest Moon +B x SGCH CRF Castle Rock Penny Wise 1*M 3*D VVEE 90)

Penny Farthing is a very dairy little doe we weren't planning on having freshen as early as she did, but when you have bucks on the same farm as does, things sometimes happen you weren't planning to have happen. She has only made it to a couple of shows so far, still being a bit on the shorter side (which strangely enough can count against even Nigerians), though she is long bodied with all the width and depth and dairy strength one could hope for. Her udder is proportional and well attatched, with wonderful texture, and we are very much looking forward to her next lactation to see how she looks with more maturity.
