Ariel is a sweetie with an amazing personality! She is the epitome of the perfect amount of friendliness. She will always come to greet you but she respects boundaries beautifully.
On top of her sweet nature, she has amazing milking lines. She earned a milk star as a first freshener! At 60 days fresh she gave 8.60 pounds of milk with 5.50% milk fat! Her sire also has his milk star and her dam was one of her breeders favorites to milk (because of flavor of milk, quantity, and ease of milking). In fact, it was her dam who inspired Opus 7 Farm to get into mini-nubians!
Ariel's sire (Roman aka: Marvel) gifted her his nice straight topline, a nice long body and moonspots. These qualities allowed her to place 2nd in the May 2020 Virtual show with MDGA!
Ariel is nice and wide-bodied, which is great for breeding. She delivered twins in April of 2020 and did a marvelous job. She didn't need any assistance and her twins were healthy. For her 1st kidding, she was bred to Phantom who helped elongate ears (since hers are quite controlled) and passed along the marvelous moonspots! You can see photos of her twin doeling's at the bottom of this page.
And the cherry-on-top of all of this is that she has Green Gables Trillium in her lineage (on both sides)!
Ariel is bred with twins and is due in March 2022!

"This long bodied, deep chested yearling exhibits depth of heart, and fullness at the point of elbow. She is strong over the topline in the area of the chine and loin, with withers that are slightly higher than the hips. When viewed from above, she exhibits full crops, a wide loin, good spring of rib and a very long, uniformly wide rump. When viewed from the side, she has strong pasterns and feet with hoof soles that are uniform in depth from toe to heel. Her head is strong, with good set of the eyes and a wide muzzle."
