Essence is a powerful, deep doe with a shapely, well attached mammary system with tremendous width, strong medial, and proper teat placement and delineation. A promising yearling milker, she blossomed this year, finishing her championship by going GCH at REDGA under Jennifer Tereba, GCH and BOB at the Humboldt DGA show under Cody Durst, and GCH, BOB and BIS at Humboldt under Daniel Young. She was second with second udder to Extraordinaire at the Sonoma County Fair and Mendocino County fair in extremely competitive classes. Her structural correctness makes her the herd favorite of many fellow breeders.
Essence had a single doe kid in 2017, which was associated with her carrying some extra weight and suboptimal udder capacity for such a large doe. However, her overall correctness in general appearance and mammary system remains intact. We are especially pleased that she transmitted these strengths to her beautiful milking yearling daughter, Haiku.
