Rebel was sold, a number of years ago, to the Stonecroft Herd in eastern PA, where he was used extensively.  When we heard that Rebel was going to be offered for sale, we just couldn’t let him go!  Rebel’s dam, Foxxi, was a Sparkles daughter and was sold before we realized just how much potential Sparkle’s daughters had.  Rebel’s sire, Bear, was a big influence on our herd, and we are happy to have the opportunity to bring those genetics back into the herd through Rebel.  Not ony did Rebel finish his championship in 3 consecutive rings at the PDGA Show in 2007, he also was Best Buck in Show, over 51 bucks, in 2 rings!

What a laid-back sweetheart Rebel has proven to be…a real pleasure to have in the barn!  Rebel wasn’t amused at the thought of having pictures taken…it was breeding season, and although he stood there to cooperate, he wouldn’t “pose”.  Though this picture does him no justice, Rebel is a VERY tall, long, level, buck.  He’s got great strength and width throughout.

Rebel’s kids are long, level, and very correct.  We were excited during our 2010 appraisal session when Rebel’s kids scored well, and then again when Rebel scored an EX90!  We’ve had a lot of faith in this buck…and he’s proven his worth!  Our first Rebel daughters, Rilee and DJ, freshened in March 2011 with beautiful udders.  When we took DJ to the 2011 National ADGA Show in West Springfield, MA,  we never  imagined that she would  win the  Milking yearling Class!!  (We’re sorry we didn’t take Rilee with us too!!)

For this year, Rebel continues to be  on lease to a  local 4-H family.
