Aquila Acres IRS Hestia
Breed: American Alpine
ADGA#: A001749846 (Click for ADGA.org)
Linear Appraisal: +VVV 86 (2018)
Temperament: Hestia is a sweet but slow-moving doe. She loves people and is always getting in your way as she follows you around for attention.
Strengths: Hestia is a great milker with teats that are very well placed for hand milking.
Weaknesses: Hestia had an unfortunate accident when she was young and cut the very tip of the orifice, the cut then scabbed and skin reformed over her orifice. For one season she only milked on one side which made her lopsided. Both sides now milk, but the one orifice is smaller than the other. Hestia also has a slight roman nose and her back is not very level.
Udder Description: Hestia's udder is slightly lopsided, but is well-rounded and has good attachments. Her teats are placed well.
Milk Quantity: 7 (see milk quantity scale)
Lactation Length: 8 (see lactation length scale)
Progeny: Hestia's kids (if any kept in herd)
