Today's snowy spotlight is GCH King's Rock Madison Isabella 2*M. Madison was the last kid of my first doe AKM-Farm Alexandra Isabella 1*M and the only daughter in my herd. I just adore Madison and could not have asked for a better doe to continue a legacy with.
Madison returned to the show ring this year after spending last year dry. At her first show she finished her championship with a Reserve Champion win over 20+ other does (and a finished Grand Champion)! As a finished Champion, she did not go to very many other shows this year but she still managed to go Best of Breed and Best Udder of Show at the 2016 Dutchess County Fair! She also appraised 88 VVVE again this year as a 4 year old, with excellent in head, rump, front feet and udder!
One of my favorite things about Madison is her udder! If I could have every single doe in my herd have her udder, I would be a very happy person. It is high and wide, with great rear attachment as well as a very smoothly blended fore udder. It is also very productive too, and on our first year of milk test, she milked 2070 pounds in 226 days!
Both of Madison's 2015 daughters easily earned their milk stars this year on test, as well as had nice linear appraisal scores! Her one daughter Amata appraised 87 VVVV and was the 15th place two year-old at the 2016 ADGA Nationals as well! We also retained her 2016 son, King's Rock Up All Knight out of Striker and are used him on the majority of our does this year. We are hoping that he passes on her udder to all his offspring!
For 2017, Madison took to an AI breeding to +*B SG Wingwood Farm KR Alessandro! For more information about him, check out his page here! We are crossing our fingers for a doe kid for our herd. We would love to retain a buck kid too but with using his half brother this year, I am not sure how much use he would get in our herd. With that being said, any buck kids from this cross will be sold with the rights to have them collected.
