Vernay Ace Bethany

I didn’t fully appreciate Bethany’s quality when we first saw her–after all, we hadn’t even thought about dairy goats since getting out over 30 years ago. Once we brought her home, though, we knew how special she was and set out to research her pedigree and learn more about her. She is a very dairy, sweet-tempered doe, easy to milk, a good mother, and her udder attachment area all around is positively fabulous–and no wonder. She’s solid Wingwood! We also bought her two doelings, Bella and Queen, sired by Kingfisher (and later went back and bought him). In early 2015 she was sold to her dam Zelda’s former owner and went to California. We were very pleased to get back her daughter Sparrow. We sadly learned that she unexpectedly passed away while out in her pasture in early 2017, and we wish to send our condolences to her owner. I know she is greatly missed!

Bethany had one DHIA test while she was at Wingwood, but she hasn’t been on test since. She was linear appraised in 2015: 4-02   85VG/VVV+.
