Today's Sunday Spotlight is the first of our 2016 doe kids-King's Rock 3rd Times A Charm. Charm is a doe that we waited three years for and she was well worth the wait! We bred her dam Carmel three years in a row to Striker to get a doe kid- hence 3rd Times A Charm!
We could not be more thrilled with this doe and are very anxiously awaiting her first freshening in April. Throughout the year she has been a strong presence in the show ring, with many 1st places won this year, including at the 2016 Big E! She was also the 10th place Intermediate Kid at the 2016 Nationals!
Charm is out of one of our most successful does, Carmel and reminds me very much of her dam and also her half sister Java. She is a very wide doe with a beautiful set of legs and a gorgeous rump. One judge commented that when she is set up, she looked almost perfect!
If Charm freshens with anything close to her dam's udder, we will be thrilled and you will be seeing a lot of her in the show ring! She will be the first Striker daughter to freshen in our herd and we are very excited to see what he throws as well! Charm, along with her paternal half sisters in the herd are all growing really well and we are expecting several to kid in 2017.
We have bred Charm to her paternal half-brother King's Rock Up All Knight and she is due in April, with confirmation via ultrasound. Doe kid reservations are full. We do not offer buck reservations on first fresheners but will evaluate Charm after she kids and will offer buck kids then (if she has any). While Charm does not have any reservations available, her dam-also bred to Knight, does have a 2nd doe kid and 1st and 2nd choice buck reservations available.
