Kilimanjaro is proving to
be a very consistent buck. His daughters are unfailingly long and level, with
correct feet and legs and beautiful mammary systems. He especially throws kids
with well-angulated rear legs and wide, high, open escutcheons.
Kilimanjaro's dam, CH Spicy-Acres Lexie, is the daughter of Mint*Leaf Aries, son
of 3xReserve National Champion, CH The Preference Flyer, and a paternal sister
to Mint*Leaf Aerianna, 1st place/1st Udder Milking Yearling at the 2016 ADGA
National Show. Lexie is also the dam of Mint*Leaf Elise, the 2014 ADGA National
Reserve Junior Champion. On Kilimanjaro's sire's side, he is a paternal grandson
of CH Willow Run Bugatti Knicknack, who was 3xTop 3 in her class at Nationals
and was named the 2012 ADGA National Reserve Best Udder. Knicknack's son, Kobalt
(Kilimanjaro's sire) is also the sire of CH Mint*Leaf Cheer, CH Mint*Leaf
Enchanted, GCH Mint*Leaf Kaity EX91 (VEEE), and CH Mint*Leaf Hustler.
Kilimanjaro's daughters are also proving themselves as well. He sired the 1st
place Recorded Grade Junior and Senior Get-Of-Sire at the 2016 California State
Fair, and all of his first freshening daughters this year linear appraised VG85
or higher. His youngest milking daughter, Sarah's Own Lucia, appraised VG88
(VVVV) as a yearling and has been twice Reserve Champion in limited showing.
Kilimanjaro's daughters uniformly excel in mammary shape and area of attachment,
with exceptionally good udder texture and correct teat placement. We look
forward to having them on milk test next year.
