SizeMatter’s GNH Gemini (F6)
Dam: Blackberry’s BH Dulce de Leche 2*D(BlackBerry’s Houdini x Grape Creek Dolcetta*D*P )
Born 4-16-2021. She will be a small mini, taking after both her parents. She probably won’t be ready for breeding until her second fall. She is dairy, correct, and wildly spotted. Her base coat appears to be red, but it’s hard to tell since over 80% is covered in chocolate-y moonspot, with some silver moonspots on top of that. She should have a good roman nose in adulthood. She should be a big milker for her size, with a well-attached and soft udder. We are extremely proud of Gemini, who won the Reserve Grand Champion Junior Doe in both rings at the 2022 WyDGA Fuzzy Show. Since the Ring 1 GCH was disqualified due to tattoo issues, Gemini now has her dry CH leg. Gemini’s paternal granddam won both GCH and Best Udder at our 2022 MHMM Show. Her dam’s littermate sister earned a spot in the 2021 MDGA Top 10 Milkers. Gemini has been bred to Proett for Spring 2023 kids.
UPDATE: Gemini freshened in Feb 2023 with a beautifully attached and soft FF udder. She performed well on her first 1-day milk test, producing 5.03 lbs of milk with 3.78% butterfat at 5 weeks fresh.
Pattern/markings: Red bezoar, heavy moonspotting.
2023: twin bucklings, fast labor
Overall good angles in this doe, embodying the aspect of dairy strength. The classic dairy triangle with level topline and increasing depth. Good angle to the rib with a clean thigh and flat bone. This doe has strong feet and legs with good angulation to the rear leg and straight fore legs. In terms of improvement, she tends to hock in a bit in the rear legs and could use a wider and flatter rump.

Praise for Gemini at the 2021 TMGR Conformation Clinic:
“Wide in the front…. Front legs are correct, straight and she has correct angulation in the rear legs…Her topline is level enough with a decent set from hips to pins. She has adequate width in hind legs and is open in the escutcheon.”
