Barnaby is the full brother (although definitely not a litter mate of) ARMCH Fairlea Fleur 3*D E, a doe I have long admired, and comes from a line of does with well attached, capacious udders. He is long, angular, flat boned and has a good amount of dairy character and really nice spring of rib. I’d like to see his front legs a bit straighter when viewed from the side. He has gotten even friendlier over time, seemingly the first to meet me at the gate, and he’ll follow me around the pasture while I’m doing chores. His daughter, GCH CRF Castle Rock Irish Cream, was our first doe to finish as a first freshener, and we retained his son out of GCH CRF Castle Rock Tesla before letting him move on. He is one of the first nigerian bucks to earn a Superior Genetics designation from ADGA.
