Buttons is another big kid, as most of Fortune’s kids are. Buttons’ udder is high and wide through the rear and globular shaped with nice teats.
Klisse’s TF Merci, Klisse’s TF Marble, and Klisse’s TF Reisen (no pic available of Reisen yet)
2/10/2017, Merci is bay, Marble is silver chamoisee and Reisen is bay S: CH *B Talache’s Fortune D: GCH Klisse’s DRS Chocolate BonBon 9*M
These are triplet does born to BonBon at 12 years old- they are all beautiful girls. Reisen is a little smaller as she broke her leg at about 4 weeks old and that slowed her down a little. Marble looks a lot like BonBon when she was younger, and I can’t wait for these ladies to freshen. All three are being left dry. Merci was the 3rd pl. dry yearling at nationals this year, and Marble was 5th. Merci and Marble both have dry legs.
Limerick has earned her dry leg last year. She is one of my favorite kids, and is Languor’s youngest sister. She didn’t get bred as planned, so she will be a dry yearling. She was 6th pl. dry yearling at nationals this year, although she did have other plans, and due to being extremely precocious and having milk running down her legs, she has been added to the milking string and coded as an “induced lactation” on DHIR, where she is giving around 5 pounds/day and competing quite well with the does who really freshened.
Klisse’s TF Apple 2/11/2017; broken sungau S: CH *B Talache’s Fortune D: Klisse’s NSNN Cascara Berry *M Apple is a tall, long doe, and very reminiscent of her aunt, SGCH Klisse’s NSNN Catastrophe of Hope. It will be interesting to see how she freshens. She earned her dry leg at the WI State Fair over a huge lot of other juniors. She was the 4th pl dry yearling at nationals this year.
Klisse’s TF Rizpah 2/12/2017: bay chamoisee S:CH *B Talache’s Fortune D: GCH Klisse’s KD Judith 4*M For some reason, Fortune did not cross well with either Joanna or Judith (dam/daughter) and due to some really nice relatives, Rizpah is getting held over till next year to see if she can turn into a swan.
Klisse’s SSCS Begonia 2/13/2017; belted sungau S: *B Silver-Sage KA Chocolate Syrup D: Klisse’s KAOH Lotus LA: 1-05 V+VV 87 Begonia was supposed to be sold as a bred doe, since I don’t like keeping lone animals when I have sold the other relatives, but her sale fell through, thank goodness! We have a gorgeous milker and her daughter, Geni, was one of the Zorro daughters who carries the b allele for casein. Begonia is small but super typey, and she placed 3rd/2nd udder at nationals this year. She has been at the top of her class (even in the very large ones) all throughout the show season.
Klisse’s TF Freesia 2/13/2017; bay saddle on white S: CH *B Talache’s Fortune D: Klisse’s TH Dianthus 3*M LA: 1-05 +VV+ 82 Freesia is small, like her dam, Dian, but she is packed with quality! She was the 4th place yearling milker at nationals this year and she is placing very well at local shows.
Mary has a dry leg. Like Limerick, she is precocious and has been added to the milking string, where is she is giving around five pounds/day.
Klisse’s KHB Fleek of Hope 3/04/2017; silver chamoisee; PUREBRED S: GCH +*B Klisse’s KNOH Hawthorne Berry D: Klisse’s KCH Fad of Hope *M Fleek is a huge doe with big ears- we call her “Fleek the Freak”. She aborted and so will be a dry yearling.
Klisse’s SSG Ruckus of Hope 3/06/2017; cou noir, tan hindquarters; PUREBRED S: Sweepstakes Sandman Grit D: SG Klisse’s KNOH Misery of Hope 7*M Ruckus was left dry to grow, and she’s doing quite well. Anxious to see her freshen since we also have retained her twin brother, Riot, and have several daughters out of him, as well.
Klisse’s KA Pomelo 3/10/2017; broken dun S: *B Klisse’s KPOH Ammon D: Klisse’s KRB Tangerine Berry Pomelo has earned her dry leg. She is typical of the Ammon daughters and is looking better and better as the show season goes on. She is usually right at the top of the class with Begonia. She placed 6th in the yearling class at nationals this year.
Klisse’s KA Gail 3/10/2017; brown and white two-tone chamoisee S: *B Klisse’s KPOH Ammon D: GCH Klisse’s KOOH Glynis 2*M LA: 1-04 VVVV 85 Gail has earned her dry leg. She is tall and stylish like her paternal aunt, Salome, and like the rest of her paternal sisters, is milking more and more as her lactation progresses. She didn’t place very well at nationals, but she is showing well now later in the season, and is “eye candy”.
Klisse’s KLOH Flyte 3/10/2017; silver chamoisee S: *B Klisse’s GSMS Law of Hope D: Klisse’s KOOH 100 Grand Bar 11*M Although Flyte was left dry, she is also being precocious. Unfortunately, she has some hard tissure in her udder that we can’t get to soften (despite repeated intramammary treatments) so we’re milking her to keep it in check (only about 2 pounds/day though)
Klisse’s SSCS Starling 3/16/2017; broken black with red highlights; PUREBRED S: *B SIlver-Sage KA Chocolate Syrup D: Klisse’s SSCN Robin LA: 1-04 +VV+ 84 For a most of last year, Starling was the lone survivor of Cary’s bird line after several freak things happened, and we were overjoyed when she not only freshened with a shapely, well-attached udder, but had a single doe kid (Phoenix), as well. She is small but correct.
Klisse’s KA Amy 4/19/2017; broken toggy S: *B Klisse’s KPOH Ammon D: GCH Gotta Lovem Goblin *M Amy was left dry due to her small stature, and has since injure one of her hind legs and not showable. If she freshens nicely, she will be kept as a brood doe.
Klisse’s ODRFB Sarong 5/07/2017; broken black with red highights; POLLED S: CH *B Ober-D’Rainbow Fudge Bar D: Klisse’s KA Sayonara Sarong is our junior yearling and is a pretty girl. She was 1st place in her class at nationals this year. Fingers crossed that she looks as nice as her paternal sister, Toni, when she freshens.
