***Our herd is disease tested annually and G6S normal***
GTO Ranch Isle of Islay (F5, 53.86% Nubian/46.14 Nigerian)
Sire: Sonflower Ranch’s Grover (Sonflower Ranch’s Forest x Sonflower Ranch’s Farrah)
Dam: Green Gables Cookie Doe (Green Gables CB Ivory *P x Green Gables BF Spice of Freedom +B)
Born 2-5-19, official height 25.5″ at 2 years.”Scotchie” came to us as a bottle baby and we are thrilled to be adding her to our herd. We named her Isle of Islay because her unusual pale amber eye color resembles the peat-fire scotch produced on Scotland’s Isle of Islay. Her dam is Green Gables Cookie Doe, littermate to the esteemed Green Gables Ivory’s Legacy, and was one of quints. Her sire is the flashy Sonflower Ranch’s Grover. She has some great milk and udder attachments in her background and we can’t wait to see what she brings to the herd. Scotchie was bred to Green Gables SOF Atlas*B for Feb 2021 twin doelings.
It’s time for Scotchie to move along, and she can be purchased for $600. Please contact us if you are interested.
