I shouldn't play favorites, but with Leilani I just can't help it. Not only is she a fantastic milker but she has a great personality and is often my shadow around the barn.
Multiple top ten milkers in Leilani's pedigree! She milks like a dream with nice size stretchy teats, open orifices, great attachments, butter soft udder texture and great capacity for her tiny size. We joke that she is our mini jersey cow, peaking at over 4.5lbs a day on a non performance diet of free choice grass hay, Chaffhaye twice a day and one cup of oats once a day. She is our hardest doe to dry off, with a wonderful will to milk. Add to that she is an angel on the milk stand, always eager to be milked and patiently calm.
Leilani's kids always ended up being my favorites, so over the years I gave in and selected our doe herd down to focus on her line. They are the whole package - quality genetics, easy to milk, hardy and super personalities. Leilani is now a happily retired GG Grandmother who, despite her age, is usually the instigator getting all the youngsters riled up to play with her.
Not full in this picture, I quickly pulled her out of the pasture, snapped a photo and put her back in the pasture with her kid.

Height: Medium for her age, still filling out. Personality:Friendly, mellow, confident and sweet. Super personality!
I really love this doe, as soon as she hit the ground sopping wet as a kid, I took one look at her and said "Yep, you are staying!" Moana is long bodied, very dairy with a nice brisket and front end. She has a beautiful udder that is an absolute JOY to hand milk! Seriously, my favorite ever doe to milk and that is saying something considering how much I loved milking her grandam Leilani before retiring her. Add to that Moana’s wonderful hardiness, super easy kidding and great mothering skills... she is darn near my perfect goat. Her second freshening udder is quite capacious and she fed her quads easily. She has wonderful udder texture, teat placement with nice large teats, strong medial and milks down beautifully. Available to a breeder whose herd is currently on milk test and will keep her on test, or to a breeder or homesteader after she has earned her star later this year.
