Green Gables CH Misty (2nd gen.)
Sire: Heart's Delight Hershey (2nd gen.)

Dam: Green Gables Cloudy Night (1st gen)
ds: Green Gables Morgan
dd: The Sim's Muffin
DOB: 3/14/03
Mature height: 24.5 inches
MISTY is one of my favorite does, she is so friendly and loving that she is just irresistible. Not to mention that her coloring is gorgeous! Misty's ears are about 3/4 drop and she has a fairly roman nose. Her dam had a huge udder and gave tons of milk - she peaked at 10# as a 3 year old! (see bottom of page for pictures of Misty's parents and grandparents) Misty has a very nice udder with tons of capacity and easy-to-milk teats. She is milking very well at 6-8 lbs of milk per day and is a sweetheart on the milk stand. Misty is only 24.5 inches tall. At 5 years old (when the above picture was taken) she is still going strong and is maturing beautifully. 
 
At MDGA's virtual goat show, here is what the judge said about her when choosing Misty as Best Doe in Show, "For the best in show Mini dairy goat milker, my selection was based on the doe I felt was the total package. The doe who best exemplifies what a dairy goat is supposed to look like and what they are bred to do. If you look at the Grands in each breed you will see one who has the triangle wedginess we talk about from the sharp withers down the back to rump from the top view. She has the wedginess from the side view  from the front end to increasing depth to the rear barrel. She has the most mammary capacity [milk] She has the age and number of lactations to make her worth invaluable and she has the strength and power to sustain herself and her years she has put in. Of course, I am talking about the MiniNubian:)."
