2015:  EX90 (VEEE)


2-11 206 1780m 67f 56p (in progress)

Scirocco, aka Rocky, is every bit the perfect combination of all the best points of both her sire and dam.  Like her dam, Sorrento, she exudes style and balance, with great length and depth of body, spring of rib, and great feet and legs.  She also happens to be a clone of her dam's color pattern.  Like her sire, Rider, Rocky has incredible dairy strength, with a beautiful long, flat, open bone pattern, a long, elegant neck, and a very uphill, stature.  Rocky is a very tall doe for her age as well.

Rocky's udder is stunning, particularly in the height, width, and arch of her rear udder, as well as the overall area of attachment.  Her fore udder is capacious and well extended, and the medial strong and well defined.  The teats are a bit large for my liking, but they match the udder capacity well, therefore they are not overwhelming.  With a high test of 14.2 pounds, this doe wants to milk!  Unfortunately, upon returning home from a show in early June, we found Rocky to have come down with very serious mastitis in one half, so much so we feared we may lose her.  Through a lot of hard work and luck, we managed to save the half, and even got it milking up to about half its production in a short time.  We are hopeful that next year's freshening will see a nearly full recovery, and Rocky will be able to meet her full potential, both in production and in the show ring, seeing as her chances were cut short, but not first without easily earning her first leg at first and only show in 2015.!
