Carmel is like a good wine, she just keeps getting better as she ages. She is a very slowly maturing doe, and really only came into her own at 5 years old. Each year she gets nicer and nicer and is still going strong in at age 8, placing 5th in the very competitive Aged Doe class at the 2016 ADGA Nationals.  Carmel is enjoying the semi-retired life, letting her daughters, granddaughters and great-granddaughters shine.  

She is put together beautifully and has always been at the top of her class.  She placed 11th as a three year old at the 2011 Nationals.  In 2013, she was 2x GCH, 2x BOB, 1X BDIS, 1x RGCH and 4x 1st and 2x 2nd.   In 2014, a late and difficult kidding kept Carmel at home for our first show and her "debut" for the year happened at linear appraisal where she appraised 90 for the third year in a row (how is that for consistency!).  To our excitement, she went excellent on all four categories of the scorecard.  At the 2014 ADGA Nationals, Carmel placed 12th in a very competitive class of 5-6 year-old Nubians.  She finished her championship at the 2014 New Jersey State Fair.  Her record for 2014 was 3X GCH, 3XBOB, 2X RGCH and 5x 1st.  

One of my favorite things about Carmel is she is continuing to age beautifully.  In 2015, she had a late kidding and less than 3 weeks later, turned around and appraised 91 EEEE at 7 years old.  We dragged her to all of our fair shows, where she was undefeated, going Best Of Breed each time, and was Best Doe in Show at the New Jersey State Fair and the Dutchess County Fair, all while milking over a gallon a day.
