We knew that we'd be retaining a doe kid from Kirby if she gave us one, and she filled the bill!  This gorgeous girl is nice and level, has excellent width & length and is very upstanding.  Her first show, at only 6 months of age, Pigeon earned her junior leg!  Way to go Pigeon!

Pigeon is our only retained offspring sired by Rider - and we're so happy to have her.  She's our daughter's goat, unofficially, and Carrie prefers to be the one to show her!

Piggy is one of our favorite does to milk.  She has long teats with wide open orifices and milks out quickly.  Her MSL is well defined and offers ample support. Photos are of her 4th freshening udder, having kidded with a single buck, which was pulled to a bottle, then dam raising ANOTHER buck that wasn't hers (she's awesome, isn't she?!) for two months...now being milked twice a day. 

Pigeon was shown in milk for the first time in 3 years in 2014 (by Carrie!) and was 4th out of 12 entries in a strong class of 3-5 year old milkers.  She looks great!

HES Classification at 4 years old 86.6 Very Good
