Queen is a stylish daughter of Kingfisher and our foundation doe Vernay Ace Bethany.  Queenie certainly lived up to her namesake (CH River Queen) in the udder department, having a lovely round udder with excellent texture, making her one of my favorite does to milk. In 2016, she not only earned her 1*M in 2016, she also earned Silver and Bronze Certificates for production from the International Nubian Breeders Association (INBA). She has had an on-going hoof problem making her lame at times, so she wasn’t Linear Appraised with the rest of the herd in 2016. Her daughter SG Imnaha GRD Rosie O’Grady 2*M (N1766500), sired by Grande Ronde WHS Duncan, and her granddaughter, Imnaha AM Bailey’s Irish Cream are also in the herd. Queen is bred again to Amador for an April kidding.
