Sometimes, a kid is born and everyone just says, "Wow!" Fascination is one of those kids and from the first day that she hit the ground, we knew she was something special. Around our hose, she is known as "Grandma" because she has her granddam Fiction's head (and her personality). She continues to be an absolute standout in the barn and we hope that she has just as large of an effect on our herd as Fiction did.
When she freshened for the first time we once again had to say WOW and entering into her fifth freshening, it is no different! With an udder that we believe will only get better with age, we love just how well-attached and high her rear udder is. In addition, we adore the extension and smoothness of her fore udder. She is also incredibly level, long, and correct throughout.
In 2018, Fascination was the 6th place yearling milker at the 2018 ADGA National Show. As a 2 year old, she was first and second several times in large classes and finished the year going 4x1st, 2xBOB, 2xGCH, 2xRGCH, finishing her championship.
2020 saw some limited showing--she was BOB and a contender for BIS in her first two shows out. She stood 3rd in Champion Challenge against some older National-show quality competition--and to quote one judge, "She is so cute! She just needs time!"
2021 was her year to shine. She started out at her first show winning BOB and BIS, and ended up winning 4 more Best in Show awards that year. In 2022 we were thrilled with her permanent Excellent appraisal score; she was 11th place 5-6 year old at the 2022 ADGA National Show.
Fascination was brutally attacked by dogs this past summer; she has recovered but we are not sure if she will ever show again. Regardless, she is a beautiful doe and we are blessed to have her in our herd. We are thrilled with her two 2020 milking daughters out of CH Alder*Rose Live Action and are excited to repeat that breeding this fall. She has sons working
in Oklahoma and in Arkansas. She also has a beautiful milking daughter, Maple Wind Gypsy, owned by the Burton family in OK that appraised 88 VEEEV as a 2 year old.
