Yes, Reed has upright ears! Really lovely ears!
After purchasing a foundation recorded grade doe this summer, Sharla
made the decision that she wanted to breed a very small, select group of
Recorded Grade does to show reminiscent of what we started with many
years ago. After talking to numerous breeders she decided on the Harmody
herd of Alpines. We know and trust the Larsons and know the quality of
their animals and the care they receive. As luck would have it, they had
a lovely prospective buck at home.
Reed is an
extremely dairy correct buckling. He is sharp over the withers, long and
lean in the neck and blends smoothly throughout. He also stands on a
very correct set of feet and legs. Reed's dam, Arabesque, was 2nd
place-1st udder 2 year old at the 2016 National Show. His sire is
an outstanding Redwood Hills buck out of GCH Redwood Hills Sierra
Following the National show, we made
the long trip to Colorado to bring this guy home. He will be used on a
very select group of LaMancha does with the hopes of developing a small,
elite group of Recorded Grade show does.
