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!
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!
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.
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
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
¾ sisters residing in our
