Hefty Goat Holler Layla

April 1, 2020
Generation - F1 Grade

She's a Goofball but Easy to Milk.

I was so hoping for a doeling or two from Rhea in 2020! I got only one, but I am so pleased with Layla.

I love how long and wide she is throughout. I also love that she inherited Rhea's distinctive chin markings and elbow spot but her sire's bright blue eyes.

Layla is a goofball...sometimes, she loves you...sometimes she runs from you like she's never seen a human before. Who knows why. She doesn't, bless her heart.


Layla freshened with triplet doelings 2022 as a first freshener. She kidded easily and is a good dam but her initial production was nothing impressive for triplets (about 3lb a day) so her kids were supplemented. At the most recent milk test (June), her production improved to 3.8lb a day. I left one doeling on her until August, so Layla was the only one of the three does on test that completed all 5 tests.


Her udder is buttery soft, easy to milk with great orifices but the attachments didn't get as improved as I hoped - they are much better but could use more laterals, still. Her teats are smaller this first freshening, but I imagine that will improve. Her udder is a nice shape and milkable, so that's a win.

21 pounds of butterfat; Highest BF 6.9; Avg. BF 4%
