Shannon last freshened 14 months ago, and has been on a very erratic once-daily milking schedule for the past 10 months. Currently, she hops onto the milkstand, eats up her six ounces of grain, and gives me 2.5 pounds of rich, sweet milk. And she's getting fat doing it.
Shannon kids without trouble and is an excellent mother, raising triplets with plenty of milk to spare. She is also one of the most affectionate goats you could meet, insisting on a thorough face rub before she will leave the milk shed willingly.
Shannon did well the two times she was shown, taking Reserve Champion in a large live show, and Grand Champion in the MDGA V-Show, both as a first freshener.
Shannon has sons standing as herdsires in Missouri and Tennessee.
