Kuma is the matriarch of our herd; most of our animals are related to her and she consistently passes on her overall correctness and superb mammary. We have been especially pleased with her daughters Sine and Resistance and sons Radical Act and X-Factor; her two 2007 daughters by Freelance are also beautiful.

A smooth, flashy doe and seventh generation champion on her dam’s side, Kuma Sutra’s style reminds us of her granddam, Raindancer.  She excels in general appearance and length of body, and is extremely level with a correct front end.  Her udder is beautiful, with an especially well-extended , smoothly blended fore attachment and a high rear attachment with tremendous width.  As a milking yearling, Kuma Sutra placed 1st four times, including the California State and Sonoma County Fairs, and was once Reserve Grand Champion, winning her first leg.  As a two year-old she finished her championship at her first two shows, winning Grand Champion at the REDGA show under Jennifer Bice and Sam Whiteside.  At the 1999 Nationals, she was 3rd in a class of 59, and 1st udder; she was also part of our 1st place Breeder’s Trio and 1st Dairy Herd, and, with her dam, Harmony, was 1st place Dam and Daughter.  As a three-year old, Kuma did not freshen until June, but did win 1st at the Sonoma County Fair, 2nd at the California State Fair (where she was not fully bagged), and GCH and BIS at Mendocino County Fair. At four, Kuma was Reserve Grand Champion at the California State Fair, and 1st at Sonoma County Fair. In 2002, she was again 1st at Sonoma, BOB at REDGA, and GCH and BIS at Mendocino County Fair. In 2003, she topped the 5-6 Year-Old class at the California State Fair and was named Grand Champion, where her daughter Resistance was 2nd place Milking Yearling, daughter Sine Qua Non was RGCH Junior, and granddaughter Swing Dancer was GCH Junior.  In 2004, at 7 years of age, Kuma was GCH and BIS at the highly competitive Sonoma and Mendocino County Fairs. In 2006 and 2007, Kuma continued to top the aged doe classes and was many times 1st place Dam and Daughter with her daughter Sine

Kuma died in her sleep at age 13, but her legacy will live on through her many outstanding descendents.
