Description:

This little doe (she's lucky if she's much over 20") was actually sold as a kid, but boy are we thrilled that the buyer backed out!  Splash is refined and stylish, with a strong topeline, flat bone pattern, and a loonngg neck, angular rear legs, improved feet over her dam, and short, high, pasterns.  If I was to tweak anything on Splash, I would give her toes that face straight ahead and a better shoulder set.  Her udder is her crowning glory (as it should be), it excels in strength of MSL, rear udder height, area of attachment, and man, oh, man is her udder texture to die for - she even earned an E in udder texture in 2010!  Her teats do point forward, and she does have a slight pocket, but her foreudder extension is nice and lacks a shelf.   In terms of milk production, Splash has been impressive.  Only having one kid usually translates to low production, however at Splash's peak in 2009, she was milking 1.5 quarts a day.  She's also insistent on not drying up, and after a week of trying to move her to one milking a day, she was still going strong and her production had not dropped! And the work ethic on this girl is flawless! Definitely my favorite doe to milk.

Kalee's Notes:

Splash is quite the character, and very much a mama's girl.  When she kidded for the first time, she shocked us by deciding since she was nursing kids, she should be nursing also!  It was quite a sight to see Tupelo with a newborn nursing from one side, and Splash, udder and all, suckling from the other!  To this day Splash is more bonded to Tupelo then her own kids, and becomes extremely upset if they're separated.  because of this Tupelo has to be present at ringside when Splash is in the ring.  One VERY distinctive quality of this little gal is her amusingly high pitched voice that she uses often.  No matter if she's attempting to perform opera while in the show ring, asking to be let out for browsing, or demanding to be milked, it always brings a giggle.
