Sadly, we lost this gorgeous buck during the winter of 2015.  He has been an amazing buck passing on goregous udders with excellent attachments and wonderful conformation and breed character.  He will be greatly missed.  Thankfully, we still have his dam, several daughters, a son and many grandkids, so his legacy will live on in our herd.

Moonbeam has beautiful conformation and good breed character.  His dam has a wonderful udder with nice long teats and a super tightly attached udder.  She also milks VERY well.  MoonBeam also has a very nice personality and loves people.  MoonBeam's kids are all VERY nice and we often see improvements over their dam.  Moonbeam's daughters have freshened with BEAUTIFUL, socked on udders..  We have 2 of his daughters in our herd (Luna and Shadow).  His dam continues to be an excellent milker and is small (24").  Moonbeam has proven to be one of our most consistent bucks.

6 of Moonbeam's kids have been tested for G6S and all came back Normal, his grandsire was also tested Normal and Moonbeam has 4 half siblings (from both sides) that were tested and are also Normal.

Moonbeam's beautiful face - I LOVE those eyes!

His TERRIBLE Fall vshow pictures.  I didn't have a helper, so he didn't do that well in the show.  Still took 4th out of 7 in one class.  But took 7th in the other class...  Oh well, at least the above pictures show that he is nicer than these pictures show. :-)
