Bert was another "on a whim" purchase who was just what we needed. I was looking for a buck to help with front end assembly, front legs and maintain strength of pastern. While visiting the Beorningswick herd, Ruth walked Expialidocious out of the pen towards me and she tracked extremely well on straight front legs with tight toes, smoothness of blending throughout the front end with good depth of chest. She had placed well at the 2016 and 2018 national shows. Her dam GCH Bodacious EX92 was a doe we showed against many times who did extremely well and had a lovely, well attached mammary system. She was the 2016 Recorded Grade reserve best udder, made the top ten list and was third behind the national champion and reserve national champion. Expi is also a paternal granddaughter of Aspen-Hill's Rain-Beau EX91 who sired the 2016 National Champion and Best Udder winner Araby-Farm AHRB Just-Tina EX92.
Bert's paternal line is no stranger to our herd. His sire Houdini, is a son of McQuitty-Farm Sargent. Sargent is a son of the 2014 National Champion and Best Udder winner, Tres Amigo Ticket Snivel. Sargent also the sired the 2022 National Champion and Best Udder winner CH Araby-Farm Mercedes in addition to our successful herd sire +B Araby-Farm MFS Alcatraz EX92 who has sired some lovely does with extremely consistent mammary systems for us. Houdini's dam CH Araby-Farm Hocus Pocus who scored is the 2010 National Junior Champion and is sired by one of Araby Farm's notable herd sires, +*B Companeros Clinton Admiral who sired does such as CH Araby-Farm Araby Queen EX91.
Bert has produced some does excelling in general appearance and body capacity. They are large with plenty of substance of bone, level across their back and rump with correct feet and legs. We look forward to seeing his first daughters freshen in 2023.
