Garden Gate Northern Ambrosia

Sire: Saada Northern Kodiak

Dam: Garden Gate PC Sweet Passion

DOB: April 14th 2012

Ambrosia is a welcome late addition to the herd. She has a great deal of capacity and dairy strength. Her mammary is well attached in the fore. Ambrosia’s real asset is her milking ability, she peaked at just over 6 litres per day (barn records).

Brambles Buccaneer’s Tansy

Sire: Garden Gate PC Buccaneer

Dam: Garden Gate Northern Dove

DOB: September 7th 2013

Tansy is a smoothly blended doe. She is such a pleasure to watch on the move, as she is so naturally level across the topline. Tansy stands on strong feet and legs and is the type of doe who is built to last the test of time. Her udder is well attached, both fore and rear and she is a steady milker. Tansy is a lovely tribute to both her sire and dam.

Bramble BRH Aphrodite

Sire: Brambles Rosalee’s Harlequin

Dam: Brambles Aria’s June

DOB: February 13th 2016

Aphrodite comes from a line of does who are steadfast and hard working. When she freshens, Aphrodite is waiting by the parlour at milking time. She in particular has a good deal of extension to her foreudder and width to the rear. She shows good dairy strength and as she has matured her rump has become more level.

Garden Gate KR Amethyst

Sire: Saada King’s Ransom

Dam: Garden Gate Canadian Crystal

DOB: April 6th 2015

Amethyst is a strong brood doe and can always be relied on for milk production. Partially because of her lines and also as a result of initial set-backs, Amethyst has taken a while to mature. She is level and wide over the rump, strong in her feet and legs and with age she also deepened in the barrel. Amethyst has an awful lot to offer.

Brambles BRH Rock ‘n’ RollRuby

Sire: Brambles Rosalee’s Harlequin

Dam: Garden Gate KR Amethyst

DOB: May 2017

Ruby is a correct doe, standing on especially strong feet and legs. As with her dam, Amethyst, Ruby’s rump is becoming more level with age. Ruby unfortunately did not come into full milk as a first freshener, but I feel that with all the milk in her pedigree and the promise she showed in terms of milk volume, it was worth giving her another chance.

Brambles BRH Emerald

Sire: Brambles Rosalee’s Harlequin

Dam: Garden Gate KR Amethsyt

DOB: February 2018

Emerald went through the typical “Harley phase” as a kid and stretched out to become one of the most stylish does in the herd. I love her width in the chest floor and depth of body. She freshened with an udder that shows a lot of promise, with correct teat placement and a smoothly blended fore-udder. I am looking forward to her second freshening.

Brambles BRH Garden Rose

Sire: Brambles Rosalee’s Harlequin

Dam: Brambles RJ Orange Blossom

DOB: June 2018

Rose is the type of doe who blends into the background, in a similar sense to her dam, she is a quiet doe. Rose freshened as just a yearling. Her milk production has been steady. Her fore-udder is exceptionally smooth and long. I appreciate her long rump, strong pasterns and long, clean neck.
