Black Oak represents the combination of two doe lines that rise to the top of my “yes!” list. Both Sarafina and Penny Wise are very dairy does, with great production, conformation, and will to milk. I love the profile on this buck- the placement of the front legs, the brisket extension, levelness of topline, blending, and angularity are all traits I would like to see him pass on, as well as the will to milk and productivity of his dam and granddams. He also has flatness of bone and good sweep to his ribs, and the quiet sense of dignity of his mother.
