Monster at birth in the blue sweater with sister Broomhilda
Monster is one of our beloved 2020 house babies. She was unbelievably tiny at birth but was determined to nurse and stay with her family. On the 2nd day, her mother began gently pushing her away and more forcefully over the next
two days until I took her inside. I had planned to keep her sister but since not keeping Monster was not an option, I sold her lovely sister to Critters Haven. From birth Monster had been named as a sort of sarcastic commentary on her size- she was a bit shy
of 2 lb. I planned to name her Sea Monster but a visitor at the farm suggested Cookie Monster which she assuredly is. However, here on the farm she is known simply as Monster.
Monster is from the first litter of our promising young
buck MeadowMist RE Phantom Elk. Her dam Esmeralda (daughter of CH Gypsy Moon WP Starwars) was also a first freshener. We are very happy with Esmeralda's silky udder with large, easily milked teats. She has grown well so we hope to breed her for May 2020 as
we are anxious to see udders from Phantom's daughters. Plans are to breed her to new jr buck StraightWay Farm SF Deputy D. Monster is a long bodied, very dairy little doe. Deputy also is long and dairy so these should be some nice show kids.
