Joyful Meadow TT Helios
Sire: Fairlea Tom Tomson *S *B EX91
Dam: White Lodge Noisette
Helios is a lovely buckling who is showing lots of promise! His dam, White Lodge Noisette, is producing 2.8lbs of milk in 12h, with lots of milk left to feed her triplets, as a second freshener. Based on this, we estimate her to be producing over 6lbs per day! Noisette has long teats, perfect for hand milking, and wonderful soft udder texture. Noisette won Best of Class, Best of Breed, and Best Udder of Breed, both with the licensed judges' votes and the membership vote, in the Spring 2020 Canadian Goat online show.
Helios’ sire, Fairlea Tom Tomson, was classified as Excellent 91 and is a *S and *B buck (the *S is with the CGS, the *B is with the ADGA. The requirements are slightly different). Tom’s dam, Fairlea Florence, produced an incredible 1001 lbs of milk in one lactation! She is in the 91st percentile for milk production in the US.
As a fun bonus to this pedigree packed with dairy qualities and beautiful conformation, Helios is covered in moonspots and has blue eyes.
