Vendredi is also known as "Dreddi" on the farm.
As cool as the name sounds, it originates from a line named after Friday. She is our pride and joy that was purchased
from Mariah Acton and Ardis Lyons. We thank these two people every day for gracing us with Dreddi.
Dreddi is an amazing doe that excels in every part of
the score card. Her mammary system is practically ideal with great extension to the fore udder and wonderful blending
of the rear udder. The side profile is a dream to look at when in a side-by-side line up. In general appearance,
her top line is level and blends smoothly into a set of sharp withers and blends back into an extremely level rump.
Dreddi exhibits great dairy character with lovely ribs that are flat, angulated to the flank with tremendous spacing.
She has extremely pliable skin that is also felt in a milked out mammary system. Finally, body capacity is deep and
carried well into the rear barrel, as seen in the pictures available.
Dreddi was used as an example goat for my mother and
other goat owners to witness the process of linear appraisals. This turned out to be a perfect goat to practice on because
she hardly faulted in anything.
Dreddi was shown extensively during the show season
of 2009. She participated in some very competitive shows which include ISDGA in Boise, RVDGA in Central Point Oregon,
Chehalis, Spokane Interstate Fair and the National Show in Sacramento, Ca. She consistently places at the top of her
class; occasionally receiving a rosette.
The only part of this doe that is not as desirable as
the rest of her are the teats- both size and length. They are a bit more plumb than we would like but the
length is wonderful for hand milking. This is the only doe I will drink from because of the texture of the udder and
the delicious, smooth consistency.
