Our original Nubian doe was just a backyard goat from a 4-H herd, but as I started to become more involved with ADGA I attended the 2014 ADGA Convention in Maine and was really taken with +*B GCH LakeShore Ace Bellagio EX91 who was a consignment in the Spotlight Sale and has since gone on to be a very influential sire. I introduced myself to the owner of LakeShore at Convention and placed a reservation on Bellagio's dam while at Convention. Fast forward to spring of 2015, Katerina was born and my reservation was fulfilled. That summer her dam Bellissima went on to win Reserve National Champion, Reserve Best Udder and Total Performer and fast forward to the 2016 ADGA National Show Katerina herself would go on to win the milking yearling class at our first ever National Show. For a first quality dairy goat purchase, she certainly worked out and has left quite a legacy behind for us. 

Katerina was an angular, feminine and structurally correct doe. She had lovely width between the hocks and set to her legs, an uphill, level back and smooth front end. Her udder was one of the most correct we've had in our herd with strong, smooth attachments, a nearly ideal medial ligament and good teat placement. She milked down extremely well. 

Many don't realize that Katerina have some very bizzare and sudden medial issues as a milker. Summer of 2017 she came down with a very serious case of mastitis while I was away with an extreme fever, with the help of our vet and friends along with a streak of luck she pulled out of it and her udder completely recovered. Later that year, she developed a sudden hernia on her side and underwent a very successful surgery that fixed it. Due to all of these health issues, she missed some appraisals just due to timing of these things, and developed a deficiency that did cause her to have a bow in her front legs as a mature doe. I was devastated that a skin abrasion forced me to leave her home for the 2018 National Show because I am confident she would have done well, but she was a lovely doe to enjoy at home. Even after all of these struggles, she went on to finish her champion and win best in show honors. While I didn't push my luck and show her much after that, I am so thankful we were able to freshen her a few more times before losing her and have three daughters in our herd and purchased semen back from her son that resided at LakeShore Nubians to use in our herd. 

She was a special doe for so many reasons and she is terribly missed in the barn.
