This blue-eyed boy has an exceptional pedigree and his dam is amazing. A 2020 ANDDA Total Performance Award Winner received her 91 LA Score as a 9 year old and is still going strong as a 10 year old. I am hoping her will not only pass on her udder, but also her longevity.

Ace may look "plain" but check out the LA scores on the does behind him! Plus parental grand-dam has 6 consecutive years of making the ELITE doe list. Her LA 92 score came as a 6 year old and included a score of 40 in rump width, 38 in fore udder attachment and a 37 in rear udder height. His own dam scored the 91 in 2021 as a 4 year old. And there are many more 90+ LA scores even further back in his pedigree. We are really looking forward to seeing what this handsome boy can do for our herd.

Where to start with handsome blue-eyed guys pedigree? He shares a similar pedigree to both High Tide and Saranghae listed in the reference section below.
His Paternal grand-dam, Polar Vortex, was lost in the fire that devastated Castle Rock Farms in the fall of 2020. Vortex is a 3/4 sister to the 2015 National Champion & Best Udder Doe Castle Rock Flash Flood. She is also a daughter of Castle Rock Cleveland Sage who is the sire of the 2019 National Champion & Best Udder Castle Rock Tahitian Sunset.
Confused yet? Don't worry even though it make take ADGA a while to add him to the genetics page I am working on my own pedigree page for him, complete with pictures. Oh and of course I do plan to use him with both High Tide and Saranghae daughters that have been retained in my herd.

So blessed to be able to lease this blue-eyed guy for 6 weeks in 2020. He bred four of my does and three that were on lease. He has some amazing udders behind him - especially from his dam so I am hoping he passed that udder on to his daughters! This picture was taken while he was in rut and had just been introduced to the 7 does he would be breeding, and doesn't come remotely close to doing him justice.
His grandsire Castle Rock Cleveland Sage is the paternal half-brother to the 2015 National Champion Castle Rock Flash Flood, and also the sire of the 2019 National Champion Castle Rock Tahitian Sunset.
