About Mardi Gras
We had a tough time choosing which doeling to retain out of Griffin and Blondie. They were both really quite similar and the decision wasn't made until they were almost 8 weeks old.
Mardi Gras has some strong milking lines in her pedigree. Her dam Blondie earned her milk star as a second freshener. Blondie's sire Hermit Crab is a US import from Rosasharn Farm. His dam, SG Rosasharn HB Kujira 4*M, is described by her breeder as "a super heavy milk producer, with a well attached udder and very long, whole-hand teats!" She took the #1 spot for production on the ADGA Top Ten List in 2014 milking 1510lbs in 305 days in her 6th freshening. The photos in Mardi's gallery are of Kujira as a 12 year old 11th freshener. His full sister, Rosasharn MM Mermaid Muriel 5*M, was #4 for Milk production with 1690 lbs in 305 days, #5 for Butterfat and #10 for Protein on the ADGA 2021 Top Ten List.
Mardi's paternal sister, Hilda, was our highest producing doe this spring milking almost 3 lbs every morning as a first freshener while continuing to feed her quads with no problems. She easily earned her milk star in April of 2022.
Her paternal aunt is Potting Shed MM Ashley, who is another well known powerhouse doe with a beautiful mammary.
Her paternal granddam, Maxie, took Grand Champion at the 2017 Canadian East National Show and classified EX90 as a 4th freshener.
We are thrilled with this doe and how she is maturing. We can't wait to see her freshen in late spring of 2023.
