This young doe has some very big hooves to fill, and we have every confidence she will do just that. Elektra is the last daughter from Algedi Farm RB Ocean Flower retained to the herd. Ocean is a very special doe here on the farm, and as she has been so generous with beautiful daughters, and sons over the years, we have elected to allow Ocean to enjoy an early retirement, and be spoiled while she enjoys the peace and tranquility on the farm.

Elektra is perhaps the most similar, of all of Ocean's daughters, to how Ocean herself looked at this age. Over the years, Elektra's dam has continued to impress us, as each year she seems to get better and better. So much so, that despite already having earned her permanent score on linear appraisal as a 6 year-old earning a EEEE 91, we elected to have Ocean reappraised as an 8 year-old because we felt she looked better than when she earned her permanent score. Indeed, her appraisal score went up to a EEEE 92. 

Meanwhile, Elektra's sire, as a two year-old buck not only appraised for the first time at EVE 90, but in the span of ten days, two shows, over four rings, Starman earned three Senior GCH legs, and finished his permanent championship. His sister, When Stars Align, placed at the head of her class consistently in very large and competitive two year-old classes, as a first freshener. 

This young doeling has a pedigree, on both sides, that is difficult to beat when it comes to structure and longevity. Her sire's dam, Alethia DJ Written N The Stars earned a string of Best of Breeds in the Champion Challenge Class as a six year-old. Her dam, Ocean Flower, did the same as an eight year-old, including earning a Best Senior Doe In Show at the most competitive show in Northern California, just two days after her Linear Appraisal session.
