Sweet Nightingale Chicory

Sweet Nightingale Chicory rear udder

AB001565464     DOB 3-16-2011     More info @ ADGA Genetics

Chicory freshened as a yearling and weighs 118# in lactation with a single birth. Chic is producing 8.5# daily. Chic's udder is slightly less 'fore' than her half-sister, Gala's, and her teats are not as cylindrical as I'd like, but very easy to milk. Chicory is a little shy, but more assertive than Gala - the 2 does are inseparable.

Linear Appraisal:
     1-03 84 (V + + +)
     Excellent: Back, Rump;
     Very Good or Very Good+: Head, Legs front, Legs rear, Udder texture (in milk).

Chicory's sire, Heaven's Hollow Tapatio, comes from champion lines on both paternal and maternal sides; the 'best of the best' in the White-Haven line, as well as the Tonka Tails lineage.  Tapatio's dam, Heaven's Hollow Zoretta, became 2008 National Reserve Jr Champion as a Jr. Yearling, then permanent champion as a first freshener at 2 years old.  Zoretta is a large, long bodied doe like her dam,  Candy LA 91 EEEE (who placed 1st at nationals in 2005 and 5th in 2006). Zoretta is a prolific milker (3600 lb, 2010), despite a history of mastitis in 1 half.  She placed #1 on the 2011 top ten milk production list.

Chicory's maternal lineage is Hyonahill, well known to many established breeders as a premier herd until recently, as Ruth McCormick has 'retired' from showing and competing after many years.

  • Bred 2011 to Heaven's Hollow Resistol B001520101, owned by Julie Bonini of Heathero herd.
  • Kidded April 24, 2012 -- 1 doeling -- CalOak Resistol Celeste (retained).
