We didn’t fully appreciate Marian until some time after we brought her home. It took her a while to settle in, but once she did, we were impressed. Her pedigree goes back to Prairie-Fire’s foundation bucks SG Goldthwaite Jose Carreres and SGCH Trillium-Trail’s Proud Venture, with line-breeding on Prairie-Fire Siobhan and Thistle-Run Skittles. Marian is a very dairy doe with a nice round udder shape, well-placed teats that are easy to milk, wonderful udder texture, and excellent attachments all around, especially front and rear. Nice breed type too. She was a foundation doe for the B-52 herd of mini-Nubians in Pasco, Washington, where several of her daughters and a buck from 2014 B-52’s Legends Begin still reside. Although she has never been on DHIA test or had the opportunity to be appraised, we are confident she would do well, and we are excited about the possibilities Marian presents. We were delighted that she presented us with triplets in 2015, including one lovely daughter: Imnaha King’s Guinevere, after a very easy kidding. She peaked at 10 lb. 5oz. and is still milking about 5 lb. daily six months into her lactation this year. Marian gave birth to twin bucklings by *B Woest-Hoeve Kingfisher on December 11, 2015. We are keeping her son Imnaha King’s Brave Sir Robin (N-pending), while Marian and her daughter Guinevere have been sold to Stephanie Rovey in La Grande, Oregon. We will miss Marian and wish Stephanie the very best!
