Jessie's legacy continues: hornless reverse badger great-granddaughter

This morning, I received an email from the lady who purchased Mona's daughter Clover (Dahlia's niece) and Anna's daughter Kezzi (Ari's full-blood sister) a few years ago. The news at Peace Hill Farm this year is that both of "my" does had reverse badger kids. I'm so excited and pleased for everyone involved, because I think reverse badger kids are awesome.

As we know here, Dahlia X Ari produces reverse badgers, so seeing r/b kids come out of both sides of the line at someone else's farm isn't a strong surprise. It's just a pleasant one.

The really amusing part is that Kezzi's daughter is both reverse badger and hornless. She got hit with all of the recessive genes together at once. And the photo that I received is taken almost full-face-forward, which emphasizes the Anna-airplane ears as well as the hornlessness while giving her face just enough of a tilt to present a suspicious eyeball at the camera. She looks both grumpy and dubious. Given her owner, I'm sure she is a sweetheart. But I still think it's funny.

CFH Jessie (X LHF Jared) -> GCF Anna (X KHF Cookie) -> GCF Kezzi (X Avillion Farm's Night Watch) -> reverse badger doe kid
FF Mona (X LHF Jared) -> GCF Clover (X Avillion Farm's Night Watch) -> reverse badger buck kid

Jessie's daughter Anna's daughter Kezzi had a reverse badger doe for 2016
