With his one daughter in our herd still being young we are very pleased with the results of Sweeney's daughter, Hops N Lops Imperatrix Mundi. Mundi has grown into a very large yet correct dry yearling. She has been commented as being extreme in general apperance and apprasied extremely correct in front legs, back and feet. She has had several grand champion and best in show wins in our very short 2016 show season as well as placing 9th in an extremely competitive class of 52 senior yearlings at the 2016 ADGA National Show. While Sweeney's use has been limited he himself has a great apprasial record with his current score being (02-04) VVE 88. His very few milking daughters have had well attached and balanced mammary systems that we cannot wait to watch mature.
It was an easy choice to use Sweeney after the sudden loss of his father *B Saada El-Tuzla. We were lucky enough to get two daughters from Levi before his passing that have been incredibly successful even while still being so young. One daughter, GCH Wysteria 2*M has been a favorite up and coming doe in the herd as a two year old first freshener winning several honors such as best udder of breeds in tough competition. Her littermate Mystique 2*M had quite the junior career winning best in show and grand champion in the junior District II INBA Specialty as well as being named the 2015 INBA All American Senior Yearling - her sister Wysteria was reserve in the same division. Levi has had several other high quality, best in show winning daughters as well including GCH Beornings Bananaquit (05-04) EEEV 90. We have a full page dedicated to Levi and his accomplishments, please click here to view Levi's page.
Maternally, Sweeney comes from the strongest dam line of the Beorningswick Nubian herd. His dam, GCH Beornings Roxie Hart 1*M (06-04) EEEV 89 was a competitive doe in the northeast. Between 2011 and 2012 she was 9X BOB, 6X BIS and 1X BUIS. At the 2011 National Show she was the 8th place in the three year old class and paired up with her dam, CH Beornings Kijuuki (01-03) +EV+ 83 to place 2nd in dam and daughter! Her dam, Kijuuki produced some beautiful does in the Beorningswick herd including GCH Beornings Velma Kelly (06-04) EEEV 90 who is Roxie Hart's littermate sister. Kijuuki's son, Beornings Akira is the sire of the 2011 National Reserve Junior Champion Beornings Baklava. Roxie's sire, Lynnhaven GID Wardance comes from some of the best of the Lynnhaven herd with his mother SGCH Lynnhaven FS Perfect Rhapsody appraising (03-04) VEVE 90 is a daughter of the 2002 National Champion SGCH Lynnhaven E Paradise 7*M! His sire, +*B Lynnhaven SQ Gidon produced some high appraising daughters including Lynnhaven GID Helen of Troy (04-11) VEEE 90 and Lynnhaven GID Desdemona (04-00) EEEE 91.
