We had been super excited about Pete’s dam, April, since she was born…she was a stunning doe.  We were so devastated to have lost April on Memorial Day weekend 2011, we didn’t have to think twice about keeping April’s buckling as a junior herdsire!  Pete is a true gentleman, has matured very nicely, & really resembles his dam in many ways.  

In 2012, we freshened 3 yearlings that were bred to Pete. Sadly, we lost 2 of those yearlings to kidding complications, one of which was Pete’s littermate sister, Ali. Pete’s only remaining 2012 daughter, Sparkling Acres Jesta Lil Wish, (out of Sparkling Acres Justa Sparkle) received her restricted leg at 3 months of age & will freshen for the first time as a 2-year old this spring.

We have retained 3 2013 Pete daughters in the herd. As Pete’s doeling mature, we are seeing that they greatly resemble their grandam, April.  We have faith that Pete’s daughters will provide us with a new start to those hopes and dreams that were shattered the past few years.  

We gave Pete the year off, choosing to use ‘Tug’ (a yearling son of his) last fall as a jr. herdsire.
