I fell in love with Saba while visiting the Seven Maples farm in 2004 & asked that obviously-talented breeder, Elaine Eidemiller if she’d please keep me in mind for any future Saba daughters she might be able to part with.  When I got an email the following summer, asking if I still had any interest in a Saba daughter, I jumped at the opportunity!

 

In keeping with Elaine’s naming method, I set out on a mission to find “the perfect name” for my doe kid &, while researching the names in her dam-line, discovered that the spiritual customs of Ancient Abyssinia (a/k/a: “Sheba” a/k/a: “Saba”) were astrologically-influenced.  The goddess who represented the Moon’s “threefold existence”: waxing, (maiden), full (pregnant mother), and waning (old wise woman) was “Shayba” . . . obviously meant to be this lovely doe’s name! 

 

Shayba is a very pretty & stylish doe who reminds us of her maternal grandmother, Sheba.  She has a lovely, feminine head & a long, graceful neck; pliable skin & flat, open ribbing attesting to her genetic predisposition of excelling in the area of dairiness (in which she scored 30 as a 5 m.o.), yet she is also wide throughout & has tons of body capacity, even as a kid, indicating the strength (in which she scored 25) that’s also an evident genetic trait.  Her Linear Scores are indicative of these characteristics, with E’s in the areas of Dairy Character & Feet; & V’s in the areas of General Appearance, Body Capacity, Head, Front & Rear Legs; Back & Rump.  Her linear scores were nearly all within the ideal range with an especially exciting 1.5 in Escutcheon Height!

 

Shayba’s dam, Saba appraised quite impressively as a first freshening 2 y.o. with a very respectable FS 87 VEVE; scoring within the ideal range in every category but stature (nevertheless, an acceptable 21 considering her age/maturity).  Particularly notable linear scores worth mentioning were her 38 Fore Attachment; 42 Rear Udder Height; 25 Rear Udder Arch & 28 MSL . . . Excellent in the areas of Head, Dairy Character & Mammary; Very Good in Back, Rump, Udder Texture, General Appearance & Body Capacity; & Good Plus (+) in all other categories.  Saba was going through an awkward phase for her second freshening appraisal as indicated by her 2005 score however, is maturing nicely.

 

2006 Update: Shayba kidded with a single buckling & freshened beautifully!  Her mammary is as nice - if not nicer - than her dam's & she's milking very well, even after just kidding with a single.  We couldn't be more pleased with this fancy young lady!

 

Shayba has some beautiful & successful 7/8 sisters, our own Seven Maples Wh-Son Sonatina & another stunning doe, CH Seven-Maples Wh-Ser Synergy LA 89 VEEE who earned her permanent championship in her very first show season!
