This guy is living up to his name because it is by complete luck we were able to get our hands on him!
Lucky comes to us from the well known US breeder, A Better Way Farm. When we started our hunt for the bloodlines we wanted to bring into Canada, Kathy's herd was a standout to us right away. The hard work she has put into her animals shines through in the consistency you see throughout her lines and we are beyond ecstatic to have the opportunity to work with not only the Carabear line, but EJ's line as well.
Lucky's dam, Mercy Me, is an impressive FF with lovely teat placement, a strong medial and well blended fore. We are excited to see her 2nd freshening and how she fairs in her upcoming show career and milk test records.
Lucky's sire, Braveheart is a full brother to SG Better Wayz SwissMiss Carabear 3*M VEEE92 (Elite + 2021 Top Ten), SG Better Wayz Harmony Carabear 3*M VEEE91 (Elite) and SG Better Wayz Funshine Carabear 3*M VEEE91 (Elite) who are all top does at A Better Way Farm.
Lucky's maternal granddam is another foundation doe at Better Way. Grace LA'd VEEE90 in 2021 and holds Superior Genetic Designation. She is on track to be Top Ten butterfat for 2022!
Lucky's paternal granddam, SG Better Wayz Carabear:
LA - EEEE91 (2019) and VEEE90 (2021)
2019, 2020 & 2021 ADGA Elite Doe
2020 Top Ten for Butterfat
Superior Genetics Desgnation
Dam of 4 Elite Does at A Better Way Farm.
Lucky's paternal/maternal grandsire is none other than SG Old Mountain Farm Elton Jay ++*B. Not only does EJ hold Superior Genetics designation, he was also awarded ADGA Elite Buck status in 2019, 2020 and 2021. EJ's dam , SG NC Promisedland MG Diva 4*D 1*M VEEE91 (99th percentile Elite), holds the highest PTA (predicted transmitting ability) and PTI (production type index) for the entire breed. PTA Milk +349, PTI1: 572, PTI2: 340. EJ's consistency with teat size and length in his daughters should make this heavy linebreed an outstanding addition to our herd!
