When a kid is born, and immediately catches your eye, even before it is dry, it’s a keeper. As much as we don’t need an additional junior herdsire this season, Capriccio simply had to stay.
Calypso and Hanukkah’s entire litter of kids this year was eye-catching, and so very consistent in general appearance, width, and capacity, that it made selecting who should stay or go incredibly difficult. Capriccio’s sister, Aria, is also retained to the herd this season, and thankfully his other brother and sister have landed in excellent performance homes where we can monitor their progress.
This young dairy buck is beautifully balanced, with straight front and rear legs, perfect length in the cannon bones, tight shoulders, excellent brisket definition, with a wide and level rump, and a lean long neck.
Eager to see what Capriccio will produce, if all goes well, we intend to add him to our fall breeding schedule later this year.
