Sire: Denbow Acres Farm Caden
Charlotte comes from a "Hail Mary" breeding that should have produced all polled kids. However, both Charlotte and one brother were horned. She comes from a polled to polled breeding which gives a 12% chance of a hermaphrodite. I don't believe she is but the math worked out well. The only girl is staying right here with me. I say we see what happens with this little rule breaker.
While I was very impressed by how well Charlotte matured and even more so with her first freshening udder. I was so happy to see the improvement over her mother's. However, I needed to slim the herd and just felt that Charlotte lacked a bit in comparison to her half sister. Charlotte now lives with a family I trust will love her deeply. All the comfort I need.
