Belle was named in honor of my 1978 National Nubian Club Reserve Senior All American Aged Doe, Millard’s Silver Bell 1*M, and she was the last daughter of our foundation doe, SG Bedouin Cherry 1*M. We unfortunately lost Cherry to complications following a difficult birth, and I considered naming Belle after her mom, but by then her name had already stuck. It was just too sad to think about. Belle is very dairy and the image of her mother Cherry, so it’s been bittersweet watching her grow up, because she’s very like my old Bell (Millard’s Silver Bell 1*M), too. Like her dam and her namesake, she is very sweet-tempered, full of personality, and a pleasure to own. She is also a hard-working girl, lovely to the eye, and a treasure. She certainly surprised us as a first freshener, giving birth to twin bucklings and milking over 9 lb. a day after only one week into her first lactation. She went on to earn her 2*M and also Silver and Bronze Certificates for production from the INBA. Beginning her second freshening at 1-10 months, she delivered triplets and went on to peak at over 17 lb. per day! She suffered a bit from mastitis the last two months of her second lactation, but we hope she will fully recover. We have retained her daughter Imnaha AM Dark Crystal. Her buckling Cap’n and two of his brothers by Amador went to be pack goats for my nephew Chris. What a fun life they’re going to have! Belle is bred to Amador again for a January 2018 kidding date. Belle currently places at the 94th percentile for Nubians, and her sire Kingfisher is an Elite Sire at the 92nd. percentile.
