I got to see this little guy a few days after he was born, when we were visiting the Millman’s at Emerald Park Farm.  He was an excellent looking boy then, and still is.  Charlie has great body depth and fabulous width between the legs…the definition of “a leg on all four corners”.  And those legs are wonderfully straight, too.  He is remaining fairly short.

His dam, Kiera, has a lovely udder with well-spaced teats.  And that girl cranks out the milk!  Her first calf didn’t make it, so she was milked twice a day on her first lactation, producing a total of 3 1/2 gallons of milk each day…yes, on her FIRST lactation!  Charlie’s sire, Fred, is of course a favorite for his hind end muscling.

Charlie is trained to lead and has also been shown.

We think Charlie has a lot to offer as a future herdsire, and are delighted to have him here.  We look forward to the improvements he should be able to make in our herd.  He is breeding several girls for us this summer, and will be available to go to a new home sometime in Sept.  We’ve decided to only retain Thomas since he is more the size we want for our breeding program.

In the top photo below, Charlie is a year and a half old.  In the bottom photo he is two years old, and looking pretty fine.
