Goals: Goal is to always breed her to bucks that genetically should improve shoulder assembly & also improve medial strength.
Positives: Great body capacity & width, nice rear leg set/angulation/width, great feet & legs, beautiful head & ear set, long lean neck, very long bodied. Beautiful mammary system w/high wide rear udder, nice foreudder, and amazing capacity!
Negatives: Needs improved shoulder assembly & improved medial ligament to improve the division of the udder halves (some of this may improve with age & lactations)
"Aly" was my personal pick for 2011. I hadn't intended to retain her, but everyday that goes by, I am more & more happy that I did! And now, years later, you couldn't pry my beloved Aly out of my cold dead hands - I LOVE HER THAT MUCH!! She has beautiful body structure with wonderful flat ribbing, beautiful angulation, good legs/toes, & improved shoulder assembly over her dam. She is very level across the rump & topline too. The 2012 ADGA appraiser was very impressed with our young Deco daughters. Oregon State Fair ADGA show, in a very large dry yearling class, Aly placed 2nd in her class of 17 dry yearlings!
UPDATE June 2014: Aly did amazing at her first show as a 1st freshening 3 yr old in with a big group of 2nd freshening doe's! She consistently placed 2nd behind a GORGEOUS 2nd freshener, who happens to be out of our old buck Rosasharn GX Cadbury & is paternal sibling to our Bellafire CB Macy's Milky Way! So we felt like winners all the way around! She also easily earned her milk star in a 1-day test in 2014 making her a 6th generation girl!

Bellafire DC Midnight Melody 1*M VEEE 90 *DNA - "Meli"
Melody is very eye-catching with her solid black color & crystal blue eyes! Not to mention her endearingly adorable personality! She has no idea she is a goat, & honestly believes she is part human/part lap dog!! I look forward to another Deco daughter in the herd. The 2012 ADGA appraiser was very impressed with our young Deco daughters! He made comments on their nice dairy character, sharp withers, and improved shoulder assembly over their dams. UPDATE 2014 - Melody has done very well as a first freshening 3 yr old. Placing in the top of her class every time out! Her rear udder width is amazing! As is her capacity, rear udder height, teat placement & size, texture, etc etc etc!! She is just a gorgeous dairy goat! 2015 - Meli had an off year... she struggled with mineral issues earlier in the year & once we got that figured out she just couldn't kick up the milk production again to be the 'big bang' that she usually is. The Oregon State Fair judge did repeatedly comment on her beautiful "Spot On General Appearance" and said he could see the incredible potential there if she had been a little stronger with her production. Goals: She finally gave us a doeling in 2016! Positives: Impressive body capacity & overall body width, great rear leg set/angulation, great feet & legs, nice head & ear set, long lean neck. BEAUTIFUL mammary system w/impressive medial, high wide rear udder, nice foreudder, and huge teats!! She has been at/near the head of the line everytime shown and has been commended for her "Spot On" General Appearance whenever she has been in the ring. It just seems there is always some little issue that arises before a show that holds her back from that ADGA Champion Ribbon (illness, our poor timing & scheduling, sneaky kids, poorly scheduled milk testing, etc) Negatives: Love this doe! If I REALLY had to pick her apart, now that she & her sister have matured so much, I wish she had a little more rear udder height like her sister Ally does. But Meli has much better elbows & much larger teat size/shape than Ally.
Grand Champion Jr. Doe 4H. Melody also placed 3rd in a very large class of dry yearlings at the Oregon State Fair ADGA Open show! Her sister "Ally" placed just in front of her.

ADGA Show History: Almost always 2nd or 3rd in her class, usually standing right behind her 3/4 sister, Ally :) Now that Ally is a finished GCH I'm hoping Meli can 'step it up' and start seeing the winners circle herself.
Notes: Ahhh, my beloved Andante and the ever fabulous Jupiter have blessed me with a baby girl of my very own!! I am thrilled to add this little gem to my herd! Denza freshened with a beautiful little udder! Teat placement is lovely, teat size is good although I'd like them larger, would like more capacity but that should improve, medial is strong, side & foreudder attachments, orifices, etc are all GREAT!
Positives/Negatives: Goal is to always breed her to bucks that genetically should improve udder capacity & teat size.
Positives: Overall a stunning doe, with a gorgeous strong straight topline, excellent length of body, long lean neck, good feet & legs, great rump, head & ear set. Beautiful little udder with great medial, great teat placement & foreudder.
Negatives: Would love for her to have more udder capacity and larger teats. Some of this may come with more lactation's & more kids..
