We were excited to have the opportunity to add young Corelli to the herd this season. We have long admired his dam, Cricket, arguably the best of the Shamus daughters in the Addi-Hill herd. Shamus’ owner, Mary Dignon, has repeatedly stated that Shamus is a buck who “improves every doe he is bred to”. Bringing Corelli into the herd allows us to line breed on our Rose of Sharon/Sheba line, while adding the influence of Ledger, son of Length, the 2011 Reserve National Champion, and descendent of some of the finest of the Hill N Holler bloodlines. Corelli has been called a “looker” by a few breeders who have had the chance to see him “in person”. While very dairy in type, he has tremendous bone strength, and great stature. He is level over the topline and rump. Corelli kids have all shown excellent dairy type, strong bone, and correctness in feet and legs, and we regret that we have not kept more of his daughters. To that end, we plan to use Corelli more heavily this season, breeding him to roughly half the herd. Thank you again, Mary and Tom Dignon, for giving us the opportunity to purchase Corelli!
