|Acceleration was a very special buck for us. He was the first registered buck we purchased and used on our fledgling herd. We purchased him at 6mo of age from Waiilatpu and used him on all our does that year. At that time we numbered only 4 does and only got one doeling from him, so that is the reason we have only his one older daughter, Promise! We were so pleased when Kathy and Susan of Waiilatpu contacted us and wanted him back when we put him up for sale. We couldn't have been more thrilled, than to see him go back to his roots where he could be used to his fullest potential. He will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you Kathy and Susan for buying him back! |
Acceleration's line is infused with many national champions. On his paternal side, his sire Redemption, is a full brother to Willow Run Caesar Raisa, the 2001 Res. Nat'l Champion. He is also littermate to Willow Run Caesar Revenge the '04 ADGA Nat'l 1st 2yo, and '06 ADGA Nat'l 6th 4yo and Reserve Alpine Best Udder of Breed. Redemption's dam, Rishona, has been National Champion in 2000 & 2002 with BU, 2003 Res. BU, and 2004 Grand Champion Sr. Alpine.
On the maternal side, Acceleration's dam, Abigail, received a wonderful LA 88/VVVE as a yearling milker. Abigail's dam, Waiilatpu Cowboy's Amethyst, won 1999 Nat'l Best Udder of Breed and 1st place 3yo/1st udder as well. Acceleration's littermate sister Waiilatpu WRR Abby placed 3rd place/1st udder as a yearling at the 2005 ADGA National show.
His daughters have been very competitive in the show ring. They have been for the most part slower maturing. Two of his three daughters we own took high honors at the 2008 Oregon State fair. His 3rd daughter, Beatitude, we feel, will be quite a doe with some more time to mature. Unfortunately, we never got to see Beatitude's full potential as she developed an ulcer that we were never able to cure.
Acceleration is a HUGE, buck (LA 50 in stature) with tremendous length and strength of bone. Luther, as we affectionately called him, was an incredibly consistent buck for us. He could always be counted on to throw length, width, dairyness, and strength of bone. With mammaries in particular, he was exceptional at putting on rear, and tightening fore attachment with excellent teat placement and delineation. His daughters were excellent producers, too! One of his sons has become a permanent champion for his owner with multiple best of breed wins under his belt.
Unfortunately, with a smaller herd we were only able to keep him about 3 1/2 years. We have quite a few straws from him and plan on continuing to use him via AI.
