Doo2 was awarded the SG (Superior Genetics) designation by ADGA in 2014!
Doo2 passed in late December, 2016, after a tragic experience with a retained fetus. She lost her battle in spite of every effort on the part of our veterinarians. She leaves us with one parting gift, a very much awaited buckling, who resembles her very closely. i cannot begin to tell you what a blow this was to us, and I am grateful to have had her as long as we did.
Our beloved Doo2 also gave us two Superior Genetics offspring:
SG Gryphon ST Darlin and SG Gryphon PAT Gangnam Style, as well as an SG granddaughter, Mythos BI Calypso.
Farewell, Doo2, and thank you.
We were very fortunate to gain "Doo2" as a kid. Her dam, Honey Dew, remains my favorite Nigerian of all time, and short of cloning, we're striving to get as close as we can in carrying on her genetic contribution.
Doo2 is wide, powerful and productive, among the top three milkers in our herd. In conformation, we would like to improve the structure and angle of her rump, but it certainly supports a strong mammary system! She is gloriously easy to milk and produces as we hope all our does will, one day. Always setting an example in temperament and production, this one.
Her nickname started off as a joke (we hoped she'd grow up to be "Dew 2"), but over time it stuck. I can't imagine calling her anything else now!
