Although Sierra Aspen Sky Pilot is a relatively new addition to the herd, for years the thought of this particular cross, with Darby, has been an intriguing one. When Skye joined the herd last spring, there was no question who her date would be in the fall. 

When Skylark, and her three brothers were born, the result was exactly what we expected. All of the kids in the litter were consistently long, and very level, well balanced, with the promise of plenty of width and capacity. 

Retaining Skylark was really a no-brainer, and watching her grow she continues to impress us with her overall structure. She consistently floated to the top of her class in the first few show rings she walked into, securing a reserve Grand Champion win at her first show, and then another, along with her restricted dry Champion leg at the next show, a week later. 

Lark will now get to stay home from shows until she freshens in 2020.
