Meet Sunday

Sunday is the buck we purchased last year as a buckling from a nearby farm (Rockstar Ranch).  He is an awesome buck!  Great personality, good dairy character, and amazing genetics!  The picture is from last summer, so he is considerably bigger, more manly and much smellier now (which is part of why there aren't any more current pictures.  The other reason is it is wet and gross here in the PNW this time of year.), but it still gives a good of idea of his overall structure, my bad picture taking aside.

Sunday is the sire of all our babies due this spring.  Next year, he will have to share the breeding honors with our other young buck, Hopscotch.  Sunday's registration paperwork is currently sitting in the inbox over at AGS, so hopefully he will be truly official soon.  His registered name will be: Rockstar Ranch Sunday Stroll. EDIT:  Sunday's registration is now in hand and he is officially registered with AGS.

Here is his pedigree (links are to pictures on other websites, I did not take the pictures, that is why I have directed you off-site to view them):

Sire: Old Mountain Farm Frankincense
       Sire's Sire: Old Mountain Farm Mithra
       Sire's Dam: 2M* AR Old Mountain Farm Nilam Bukit 7*D AR 2374
Dam: Prairie Wood Chantilly
       Dams's Sire: MCH/CH Flying Goat Jazzy Blues *S E (third picture down on this page)
       Dam's Dam: MK Abiah OB (the dam photo on this page)

Like I said, amazing udders and awesome genetics!  Super excited for these babies!
