Another long, elegant, striking Hunk daughter. If all of my does could be similar in style to Peregrine, I'd be a very happy woman. Described by Lynn Fleming as "the most beautiful Nigerian Dwarf doe I have ever seen," just before she awarded her the Best Jr Doe in Show rosette in Windsor, Maine, May, 2009. Breathtaking but extremely skittish as a young doe, Peregrine has become a model citizen with regular milking. She freshened with a lovely well attached udder and nice capacity for a first freshener, but exceeded my expectations during her 2nd freshening, earning a 90 with E in mammary on our 2011 linear appraisal, and doing her part in our 1-2-3 sweep of the 2 year old class at the 2011 ADGA National Show. She is the lucky recipient of the huge family teats (see her granddam Calliope)--or maybe I am the lucky one since I am the one who milks her. She also has proven to be a capacious and persistent milker, putting up with repeated trips into the show ring and never slowing down her production.

Peregrine also made the AGS Top Ten list in 2012 for milk protein with 39 pounds, tying for high percentage on that list with 4.8%. Way to go, Peri!

May, 2012 (Very bad choice of angles to the sun--she hasn't lost any of that fore udder or height of rear, it's a trick of the light, but look at that topline.) Udder photos below are from the same day.
