*B Lucky*Star's TD Kolossus (DNA typed & A/A casein) - AI sire
Kolossus is an exciting AI sire! He was a 2018 Spotlight Sales animal (selling for $5,000) and has a star studded pedigree! His 4 generation pedigree boasts 5 Top Ten milkers, an LA average of 91, 14 of the 15 does are GCH or SGCH, 9 of the 15 bucks are GCH, 2 National Champions, 2 Reserve National Champions, multiple National class winners, as well as 4 consecutive generations of BIS wins on his maternal side. His dam, Zaray, made Top Ten three times and LA'ed 92 three times! Two of his maternal sisters (Emmaray and Barani) also made Top Ten. His sire's family needs little introduction with Daniel's esteemed Tempo and Kastdemur genetics and his gorgeous progeny across the country, making their own legacy. We are incredibly excited about the potential of this cross with our girls!

++*B SG Rockin-CB RY Zoren 89 VEE -AI Sire
Zoren was a gift addition to our growing frozen collection and are we excited to have him! We are big fans his pedigree and his offspring are sensational! His dam was 1st 4 yr old at the 2006 Nationals. His paternal sisters include SGCH 3*M Lucky*Star's RY Acclaim 92 EEEE (our Fable's maternal granddam) and 3x Top Ten SGCH 4*M Lucky*Star's RY Zaray 92 EEEE. His paternal brother sired the 2019 National Champion. His own daughters include 2015 Top Ten doe Belizze, 2018 spotlight sale doe Rockin-CB Konstant Komment, and probably most notable, Haiku, the 2021 National Champion and only the 3rd LaMancha in the history of the breed to earn a LA score of 94! We can't wait to see how what he may bring to our little herd someday!

Lucky*Star's ME Hoopla 3-11-2016 A/B Casein & DNA (deceased)
Hoopla's barn name was Ivy. She was a small doe with a big attitude and her larger, easy to milk teats made her the favorite to hand milk. Ivy had a strong medial suspensory ligament, which kept her udder well above the ground. She had a very long, wide rump and the nicest rear legs in our herd, both in angulation and in foot/pastern structure. We also appreciated her ability to milk through multi-year lactations with ease.
Ivy was one of our foundation does and we are thankful for the time she was with us and for the blessing of her progeny who remain in the herd.

*B Lucky*Star's RJ Linden 4-18-2019 A/A Casein & DNA ~Sold to Goodrich Farm
Linden had the honor of being our first herdsire. He is quite a handsome gentleman, with a fabulous head, sharp shoulders, extra wide rump, wide spacing of his ribs, and low maintenance feet. His dam was 3rd 2 yr old at the 2019 Nationals and has milked tested 5.2% and 4.6% butterfat perspectively. His paternal sisters are just lovely and many are earning their milking stars as yearlings. Linden's kids have shown general improvement over their dams in width of rump, shoulder assembly, and rear leg angulation, as well as the majority carrying on his lovely breed character. We have also noted an increase in butterfat in the 3 freshened daughters in our herd when compared to their dams. Linden was collected by Blue Mountain Genetics so he can continue to be a part of our breeding program in the future!
LA: 4-03 89 VEV (E in head, shoulders, back & rump)
