Zheng freshened with triplet doelings all very correct! This is exactly what we had been hoping for.
In June, Zheng appraised LA 03-03 89 VVVE
We were a little disappointed with this appraisal but acknowledged that Zheng was still carrying too much weight. In time she milked some of that weight off and she looked much nicer during State Fair.
State Fair 2012
We intentionally did not bring any finished champions to the State Fair, hoping to earn some legs on some of the other does. We were very happy when Zheng won Grand Champion, and then went on to place Best of Breed, and also win Champions Challenge against some outstanding competition.
What excites me the most about this doe is I think the best is yet to come.
In January toward the end of her extended (two year) lactation, as a first Freshner Zheng is still producing well milking over 7# per day.
Zheng did not settle her pregnancy and as a result we are milking her through. She is still very consistent in her production.
I need updated pictures, but will have to wait for her to freshen.
Zheng freshened with a single doe 3-12-2010. She has an amazing udder, extremely smoothly blended in the fore, carried high in the rear, with a nice medial. The only thing we would change about her udder is teat placement. The appraiser suggested as she widened and matured, the teats will look more central on the gorgeous mammary she carries.
As a first freshner Zheng consistently milked 9 pounds with great components!
Zheng was bred to Acton for late April 2011 kids.

In the other three rings Zheng consistently placed 1st or second in her class. This really pleased us because she has been milking now for 20 straight months as a first freshener and her udder frankly is a little stale. We think it is pretty impressive for a stale two year old to take reserve champion with some pretty stiff competition. We can’t wait to see the udder on this doe when she freshens in the spring of 2013.2010
Zheng took first in her class in both rings at the UDGA spring show in Farmington.
