The Owner of Diva's sister Jerusha has contacted me after my last update and graciously provided me with a new photo of Jerusha, and a current weight (by the bathroom scale- same as we use).
Jerusha was G6S tested shortly after we tested our herd, and after I contacted Her owner to let her know the results on Diva and her Dam and Sire. Jerusha is a Carrier, so has only one copy of the allele for the genetic defect. At her current weight Jerusha is 65 pounds. Diva at last weigh in is 73 pounds.
This was surprising to me, as I had become convinced, that compared to our other young Doe- closest to Diva in age (Dixie), Diva was losing ground and not gaining like she should be. Now I find myself questioning that view point. I believe Diva is still gaining at a rate suitable to her family lines. However she does display the blocky head, and more slab sided build that Jerusha does not have. Jerusha is a lovely young doe.
