Cortez is a lovely buck. He is very angular and structurally correct. He and Nemo went to the Albuquerque quad show in June, and Cortez came away with 4 BIS wins! His daughters are also very correct and maturing nicely with solid appraisal scores and milk production.

Cortez's paternal granddam & maternal great-granddam:
 SGCH Springfield-Oaks JB Muneca 12*M

Muneca, "Dolly" is the recent matriarch of the Springfield Oaks herd. Although she lost half her udder to gangrenous mastitis as a 2-year old, she had already finished her championship and had scored EX90 that year as well. Although not on milk test until she was a five-year old, she milked over 2500# out of the working udder half and scored 92 (EEEE) 5X at 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8! As an 8-year old, she was V in feet, E in all other structural categories. There is a solid reason why the herd is linebred on her. Our new buckling, Nemo, is also a grandson.

Comet's milking yearling daughters are everything I'd hoped for from him. In addition to the strength of feet and legs, both Fiesta and Faith freshened with lovely udders.  My confidence in his genetics encouraged me to use him extensively again last fall, and his 2016 doe kids have performed extremely well in the show ring this year, being an undefeated Junior Get.  I expect them to freshen well also.  They were  all too young to be scored as young stock, but they are very correct and growthy.

Giuliano brings in some new genetics with plenty of milk production. The milk production has definitely come through in his daughters (see Fresca, Fortune, Flamenco). He and his son, Hawkeye, have several lovely 2017 daughters.

Gala was pretty as a kid, placing first all three times shown, and being GCH twice. She freshened beautifully at 10 months old and was shown 9X in 2011, 6X 1st, 3X 2nd, and Reserve GCH at Arizona State Fair. In 2012, she easily finished her championship and was 9th Place at the 2012 National Show, although with a single kid was not in the "bloom" she was after having twins as a yearling. She had triplet does in 2013, milked well with a high test over 18#, and was 3X BOB and 2X BIS. In 2014, she was 2nd to Kate in CH Challenge at Pima Co. Fair and at Arizona State Fair, and 4th Place at the National Show.  In 2015, Gala has been 2X 2nd to Kate in Challenge classes and 2X BOB and BIS!  Having a single kid in 2015, she did not milk as well as I would like, but still beautiful and productive. Having developed cancer on her udder, she was put down after kidding in 2016. Three daughters and a son remain in the herd.

Rosa was purchased as a kid in 2008 by Paula Reisdorff, and I welcomed the opportunity to bring her last son into the breeding program with some outcross genetics on the top. So far I like what I'm seeing and look forward to next year's first-fresheners. In addition to Hilda, he has daughters in two other Arizona herds. We should have a good idea of his worth in just a few months. He earned a CH leg at the Albuquerque in 2016 by going RCH to Cortez, and finished his championship with two GCH and BBIS wins in Albuquerque in June 2017.
