Saanen Doe= Mini Saanens/Sables

Feisty Farm is please to announce that we have added a 2 yr old 2nd freshener doe to our herd. She is ADGA registered as End 'O Lane's Zola's Candace. My children have given her the barn name of Sally. Currently, Sally is 2 weeks fresh and is averaging around 7 lbs of milk a day. She is no where near her peak, so I am expecting her to peak above 8lbs, which is a gallon. Saanens are traditionally high producers. She will be used as our family milker, as well as, to begin breeding mini Saanens/Sables. If all goes well, we will have one crop of F1 mini Saanen/Sables in the spring of 2015!  A link to her pedigree can be found on our Doe page!

We brought Sally home in the back of our Trailblazer, with 2 kids and a 4 month old in the back seat! She rode for 1 1/2 hours with her head resting on my son's shoulder! She is such an awesome tempered goat!
