Sire: *S Alethia CTO Just Dew It 3-00 VG88 (VEE)
Inbreeding Coefficient: 1.627%, 10 generations
Gunner has had limited use at stud in the past. However, despite their youth and small numbers, his offspring have already distinguished themselves. He has one finished champion daughter, a second daughter with two legs, and a third daughter with her restricted leg. His daughters have also done extremely well in linear appraisal, with two receiving "Excellent" scores for their mammary systems, and one (Sierra Aspen SW Curtain Call 89 VEEE) receiving the highest score awarded to a first freshener!
Gunner is predicted to pass on strength, level rump, angular rear legs, and strong fore udder attachments. Five daughters in five different herds averaged 86.7 in Linear Appraisal.

Placido is extremely unhappy in this picture and demonstrating what extreme displeasure can do to an otherwise "Very Good" (per Linear Appraisal) rump. Boo.
I retained several daughters and one very promising son.

Rio's full sibling, SG Dill's BF Free 5*M was awarded an EEEE 92 linear appraisal score in 2015! In 2016 Free was awarded Elite Doe status for production in the 95th Percentile.
In 2017 Rio passed away in his sleep. He was a gentle buck who consistently improved udders and added dairy strength and body capacity. We'll miss you Big Kahuna!
