Penny is a combination of some of the best that Flat Rocks has to offer--we think she is really special. Out of a stunning doe line-bred on Flat Rocks Gem (catch this amazing escutcheon, here), by an up-and-coming son of Surprise, I'm hoping to milk her until she is 12 or more, just like her famous grandmother (and multi-great grandmother). Penny won her Junior leg and Best of Breed Junior Doe at our the age of 6 months. I was especially pleased when someone asked the judge to explain what was meant by flat, open ribbing, and he walked over to Penumbra to demonstrate. At our first linear appraisal session, the appraiser felt that Penny was the most promising doe I presented. She received Excellent in head and back, and the appraiser felt that she may be only a year or so and a little capacity away from an E mammary. Penny's 2006 son by Stonewall's Turner Ashby, Phoenix, is a herd sire in North Carolina, and her 2009 son by Rebel, Stonewall Jackson, is a herd sire at Fairlea Farm.
