ROO is a first freshening 2 year-old, cou clair and just so darn cute! Her breeding is as a result of being offered semen from her sire to help prove him-out. I loved the pedigree and liked what other JAMBALYA sons have done and thought the combination of him bred to an X-RATED daughter was the best cross in my herd...and here she is, beautiful ROO!
I don't recall showing her as a kid in 2017 as she didn't fit in any junior get-of-sire groups and I needed to show 3 other Intermediate kids to accomplish the other gets. She stayed home even though I like all the kids to get travelling & ring experience. She earned her restricted, dry leg a year later at her first show, then wasn't shown again until the State Fair in late September.
She freshened with a beautiful udder that is technically correct in all mammary traits. I often describe her udder as "artistic" as if an artist sketched the ideal first freshening udder. My only complaint is that she (so far) has inherited her mother's less than ideal production record...but at least she also inherited her outstanding general appearance as you can see in her pictures the ideal topline and attractive head & breed character. She finished at the second show of the year and placed 15th at the National Show...if only she had more milk! She was intentionally laparoscopically AI'd with hopes that she will have triplets and 14-16 pounds of milk in 2020! ;-)
