Frappichino is better known as "Frappie" on the farm. I didn't know that I would ever want to get into Recorded Grades;
that is until I met Frappie.
I got Frappie from Jessica McDonald at the Oregon State Fair in 2005. I traded a lamancha doe for this gorgeous animal.
I would say the trade was a good one on both our parts; Jessica received a doe named Amanda that lived a productive life in
offspring and in milking capacity and I got Frappie!
Frappie catches your eye because of her strength in general appearance. She is appealing because she is so smoothly blended,
from her front end to the top of her rump. She also has a very level top line, and it has only gotten better with time. Frappie
excels in dairy character, by being smoothly blended throughout with a neat, lean and clean neck, not to mention some widely
I have always liked the look of Frappie, I think that is why I was so attracted to her in the first place. If I had to
fault this doe, it would have to be her udder. It is not the most ideal in shape or strength of attachments. However, this
characteristic is never passed on to her offspring. The evidence of great mammary systems from this doe can be seen in Iced
Latte or Dark Blend.
Frappie finished her championship in 2008 and has since retired from the show string. She continues to contribute fantastic
and competitive bloodlines that carry on the championship status and provide tremendous amounts of milk.
I want to thank Jessica McDonald for this lovely doe and the opportunity to start a great Recorded Grade herd.
