Inbreeding paid off with this doe! Honey Dew is a genetic powerhouse. She continues to reproduce herself. One of her daughters is GCH Timber Cove DD Honey Comb who was the first place Milking Yearling at the '02 Nationals, first place 2 year old at the '03 Nationals and 4th place 4 year old at the '05 Nationals.
Honey Dew is an accident looking to happen; she has gotten into so much trouble and seems to always come out on the short end. The latest was when she broke her front leg; the leg was set and cast, the cast slipped and the leg healed bent so she could not walk on her hoof. It took 4 ½ hours of orthopedic surgery to pin the leg and get the hoof so it is flat on the ground, but the leg is still bent. Honey Dew is correct in General Appearance; her mammary system could not have any more area of attachment. The only picture available of Honey Dew (due to all of her accidents) is one at 6 years old, where she was standing in the kidding pen area; the picture has been included so you can get an idea of what she is like.
