Betty was my very first "experiment", she is a cross between an Alpine doe and one of my favorite LaMancha bucks. Betty is the reason I like crossbreds so much. To me if I can take the qualities that are more prominent in one breed and pair them with another breed and make a beautiful animal as the outcome, I have done my job. After taking a year off and being dry as an 8 year old, Betty came out swinging for the fences as a 9 year old. There is something special about those does that take a while to mature into their frame and let me tell you it is worth the wait. Betty is incredibly tall, long, and dairy. She is just such an elegant doe with all the right pieces. I'd take a whole herd of does like her and yet I still have trouble with keeping her daughters long enough to freshen!
