*B Caprikorn Endless Chain (Born 1993; LA 89 White)
"CHAINS" was BUILT RIGHT. He was MESSENGER's replacement
in the batting order that went
MESSENGER. Because even if MESSENGER was the
greatest udder buck of all time, we still didn't like some
pasterns. CHAINS is pretty much the essence of our
breeding program - VOICE OF REASON
five times, BONUS twice,
high wide arch, lots of bone. He was throwing too much
color. Maybe one out of five babies. His kids were really
though. We felt CHAINS should go to a dairy that wanted
big milk and structure and wouldn't kill themselves over
color, and that is exactly what happened for $350.

CASH was an udder buck that had very
good, but not spectacular, milk. Two of our very few
homegrown GCHs were his daughters. He was never shown
because he ripped the lower half of his back leg loose so
it just dangled.
His full brother FIRST BLOOD was bought
by Ellen Hoy in 1996. Ten years later Ellen came back and
bought two more CAPRIKORN bucks. REPEAT DAIRYMEN CUSTOMERS
