ACCOLADE is an impressively large-framed, angular, broken chamoise two year-old with wattles. His strengths begin in dairy strength with a long, strong bone pattern and openness of ribbing. In general appearance he has a long, level topline and beautiful rear legs. His littermate sister was 2nd place junior kid at the 2015 ADGA National Show, where his sire had the 2nd place Junior Get-of-Sire and his dam was 3rd/1st udder 3 year-old. With credentials like that it's no wonder we retained him for our own use!
ADELITE has the widest rear udder arch of any doe we have bred (41 RUA, 43 RUH, 39 FU) and one of our best mammary systems. We plan to use ACCOLADE on does that we want to improve rear udder width & extend fore udders and increase length of body & general feminine dairyness.
ACCOLADE's first daughters all exhibit great length of body, levelness and angularity. At the 2017 ADGA National Show in Madison, Wisconsin his daughters MICROCHIP (1st place junior kid) and TEEMANT (1st place junior yearling) looked beautiful and TEEMANT was named the National Junior Champion over 112 Alpines! We look forward to the first udders in 2018! We have had several offers to purchase ACCOLADE but I feel that as a breeder, you really need to use your own bucks so we bred several does to him before letting him go to HARMODY ALPINES of Windsor, Colorado where we know he will see greater use, have good care and we will get to see more beautiful daughters in the future!
