***Our herd is disease tested annually and G6S normal***
Blackberry’s RBI Witchcraft (F5, 58.42% / 41.58%)
Sire: VCH River Bottom Ranch Idaho (River Bottom Ranch Charminator x River Bottom Ranch Bliss)
Dam: Blue Oaks Black Magic *P (Fertile Earth Farm’s Alchemist x Blue Oaks Shot Silver)
Born 1/10/19, “Wicca” is our first 2019 doe! Official height 25″ at 16 months. Her dam was bought already bred, so she carries the esteemed Blackberry’s Herd name. She should be smaller stature and very wide. I can already tell she has her dam’s fantastically-shaped pelvic structure. She will have a prominent roman nose and bell-shaped ears. She already has very long teats, just like her dam. It will be fun watching this girl grow up. Her twin brother, Hocus Pocus, has also been retained. Wicca has already distinguished herself by winning Junior Grand Champion in both rings at our 2019 Mile High Mini Milkers Show! She has been bred to Atlas for an April 2021 kid, and will be on milk test this summer.
Praise for Wicca at the TMGR Conformation Clinic
….I’d like to see the neck a bit longer to match the tremendous length of body this doe has. The neck is nicely set into the shoulder assembly, with a very correct angle to the shoulder. The foreleg is set correctly under the wither and she has a very nice set of fore legs. Being straight from both the front and side and wide apart. With very correct hoof shape and length of pastern. She has a very correct front end assembly when viewed from the front and from over the top. Showing a lot of shape to the fore rib and full in the crops. She has a very correct barrel with a nice spring of rib and increasing depth into the flank….She has a nice clean escutcheon with nicely placed teats….This doe has a lot of power and substance in her front end and I would probably focus on breeding her to a buck with exceptional head and breed characteristics as well as dairy strength and correct wide rumps.
