Linear Appraisal: 6-00 91 (VEEE), foreudder attachment 50, rear udder height 50, teat placement 25.

Sigourney is a gorgeous doe! She is strong in general appearance; level, deep and elegant. She has a most remarkable udder with a rear udder height of 50, foreudder 50, udder depth 32 and teat placement 25!!! She boasts extraordinary udders throughout her pedigree. Her paternal grgranddam, GCH Maple Glen PM's Carrie 6*M, was 2nd place Aged Doe, Best Udder, at the '94 National Show. Her paternal grgrandsire, Danish Classic, is in the pedigree of the most prestigious Alpines of recent acclaim.

Thistle, her dam, belonged to another and was not shown. She was a very correctly put together doe with a picture perfect udder. Her granddam, Sanstorms Roc Solita 3*M had an udder of enviable proportions and correctness.

Sigourney has been to two National Shows. She placed 3rd behind Rishona and Hope in a most superlative class of 5 & 6-year-olds in 2003. The next year she was 8th in her class.

In 2008, following a difficult delivery of triplets sired by Willow Run GB Juan Carlos, Sigourney had a hysterectomy. The doeling JC Siphronia was 5th place Jr Kid at 2008 National Show. Sigourney is still able to genetically influence our herd through her daughter, CH JC Siphronia LA 4-02 91 (EEEE); son, JLS Sullivan LA 5-03 91 (EEEE), and granddaughters CH JCS Sheriann LA 3-03 91 (EEEE), and CH Sullivan's Stasit LA 6-04 92 (EEEE).

CH Iron-Rod SPF Thornbird
The Iron Rod half of her sire was our exquisite CH Thornbird, LA 91 (EEEE),
