2020 June 9 End-of-the-Trail Master Chief is born along with his twin sister Jiani's Joi. Easy births although born an hour apart, Joi just wasn't quite ready to enter the world. Chief is very long and uphill level with nice chest width, he is the son of the currently highest appraising doe in the herd and Captain is just plain gorgeous so this breeding will be a keeper just to see what develops. He will most likely be too immature to use this fall but I am really enjoying having Master Chief around to work with.
2021 Master Chief has grown into a powerful buck with a cooperative attitude, and the awesome appearance of his sire. He will be used this fall to further improve the herd in strength and dairy adding his dam's influence.
2022 Master Chief has grown to the same size as Captain causing a lot of friendly arguments about who is the boss. He is continuing to be cooperative for me when the boys are apart. Had several nice bucklings from him and 2 doelings that seemed very correct but sold at one month to reduce the herd size. Keep and repeat.
