Linear Appraisal History:

While I was offering Excalibur for sale as a young kid, it worked out that our friends at Beorningswick has interest so we we're able to remain co-owners on him to use in our herd. His dam is young, but has some both structural and genetic pieces we hope to maintain in the herd so we appreciate the opportunity to work with them. 


His sire Alcatraz has become a mammary system and body capacity buck, but he's truly been consistent across the board. We've made some of the more difficult cuts in the herd from his offspring because every one of them has been an improvement in height and width of rear udder arch over their dams. They also have well extended fore udders, and plenty of depth and width of body. It's really no suprise with a pedigree stacked with national show winners including his paternal sister being the 2022 ADGA National Champion CH Araby-Farm Mercedes who also is the dam of the 2022 Spotlight Sale doe that sold for $10,000. 


His dam Excelsior is a young, and still immature doe but she has plenty of promising pieces. She excels in length of bone pattern, openness and angularity throughout while still maintaining strength of feet and legs, uphill stature, levelness of topline and extension of brisket we expect in our does. Her dam SG Tempo Passa Ellaria has been a productive doe in our herd that has a few show wins to her name, but she's really been valued as a brood doe. We've kept daughters from her by every buck she's been bred to and every one of them has turned out beautiful and most importantly productive. Adding more recent Tempo Passa (previously des-Ruhigestelle) genetics into our herd has been a new venture starting with this dam line but we're so excited to add them in through Excalibur as well. 


Excalibur resides at the Beorningswick herd in Connecticut but we're looking forward to using him by both live cover and AI in the future.
